Happy People Run From Anger

In 2011 we went both camping (in September) and my mom and dad's (just last month) without a single emergency room visit! We've had at least one, if not two emergency room visits for years running on both those outings. So I'm going to go ahead and call 2011 a pretty great year.

By this time next week, I'll be halfway done being pregnant. That and modern medicine haven't managed to totally stop the nausea though, so my dad suggested naming the baby, "I'm Not Throwing Up Anymore."

But since we found out she's a girl, I think we're going to go with something a little more feminine.

I found out that happy people run from anger:

And here I thought they were just jogging! But I guess they have to get all those endorphins somewhere, after all.

Last but not least, happy new year all! To help celebrate, here's my brother making the champagne tower in this year's silly hat:
Happy New Year all!

I guess I am an angry person, as I don't run, lol.
So neat to see your (hottie) of a brother make the champagne tower ;)

Maria said...

I must have missed that you were expecting! Congratulations! Let's hope that nausea leaves you soon!

Happy New Year!

Do they run from anger because they're happy? Or happy because they run from anger?

In other news, I've never ever never ever written the word "because" without having to go back and switch the A and the U.

that is a kind of funny sign. hope your nausea subsides.

Reds said...

I run and I am not angry... well rarely anyway!! Happy New Year to you too! and hope the nausea stops soon!

Notice that the people who run from anger are at the SECOND Baptist Church. I wonder what the first place Baptists do..... No I don't, not really.

Happy New Year to you too!

Hope you feel better in general!

Oh those Baptists are such losers. Don't they realise that Happy People give anger the bird?? Or is that just me? Meh. In other news....a GIRL!!!!!!! Woot woot. My fave flavour. :-)

Jill said...

Reds & Tracy - Yeah me neither. I never run. And yet, I don't feel angry all that much either. So I don't know what's up with that. Maybe anger just forgot to chase us.

Thanks Maria! Happy New Year to you too!

BloggerFather - I was actually wondering that myself. Although to be honest, I keep picturing this avid jogger with a scared look on his face, anger hot on his heels as he makes his escape.

Thanks Joscelyne!

Mark - Maybe the first place Baptists sprint from anger. Or maybe they're just running a little ahead.

Jill said...

Arizaphale - Your method sounds much easier!!! :-) :-) :-)

Slyde said...

We went camping?

BrightenedBoy said...

Congratulations on your coming child!

That champagne tower looks so cool, by the way.

Jill said...

Kerry, who'd'a thunk, right?

Slyde - Yeah you're forgetful like that,

Thanks Brightened Boy! It was a little one this year, but still fun.
