Learning From Tom and Katie

I know Andy Griffith died, and that is super sad news. I loved him in the Andy Griffith Show. He was a class act. But the real news these days is that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting divorced. Color me shocked.   

I stand on one foot when surprised….

Who can forget when Tom declared his love for Katie on the Oprah show?

If Tom and Katie can’t make it, what hope do Chef and I have?? Scientology, Oprah, Italy, stalkers…They had it all!!!

Five years ago, things seemed just awesome in my marriage, but for the extra insurance, I asked Chef to jump on the couch, declaring his love for me.

This was his response:

Well. There is a guy and a couch…that’s about it. And no, this is a re-enactment. Chef would kill me if I put his couch potato pix on the net. 🙂

Personally, I think he should have just done it…we’d probably not be where we are now….

Unable to get Chef to jump on the couch, I decided to investigate Scientology to see if it was the way to go. It wasn’t. It is a religion based on a science fiction story. There was no way Chef or I could take it seriously. He told me he’d rather go Heaven’s Gate.

At least I know and understand why the Jehovah’s Witnesses believe what they do. Scientology is just too goofy.

And Chef’s preference:

Chef agrees.

Chef decided he didn’t want us to look anything like Tom and Katie. I wonder why….

Say what you want…It was a whole different century the last time Chef and I ran anywhere..

The happy news about all this is that while Tom and Katie have called it quits, Chef and I have not. We’re doing really good these last few days. I’m making no earth-shattering decisions, and I’m wary, but I think it is fair to say that the attitude around this place has changed, and I, for one, am thankful to the Lord for helping us both out.

Things have felt like this:

Get it? Bird and Chef!!!

I’m really happy right now. I love my job… I love the work that I do. I love that I stay busier than I can barely stand, and I’m happy that Chef thinks he wants his marriage to stay in tact, and is willing to work on it. He’s done pretty great the last couple of days. I’m cautiously optimistic.

Hopefully, I will have time to write a serious post this weekend. I know you guys miss my angst!!!

Happy Fourth of July!!! Don’t blow off any fingers!!

  1. I am so glad to hear some good news. String a lot of days Ike this in a row and you have a brand new beautiful history together! I can’t wait to see what God has planned for you and Chef! Love this post.


  2. Hilarious..this was and happy…I am for you and Chef. Yay!!! Would get up and do a cheerleader kick, but my knees hurt! 🙂 Instead I shall do a fist pump and nod my head!! xx


    • Sorry about your knees! The fist pump is awesome, and you probably won’t break anything…lol..But the cheerleader kick would have been fun to watch..Thanks! 🙂 Things feel pretty good right now!


  3. i also looked in to the scienctology? wrong spelling,,,,,but it wasn’t for me. we are all praying and rooting for the right decisions to be made in your home Bird!!!!


  4. Bird, you and Chef have so much more than Tom and Katie ever dreamer of having. You have God on your side. Glad to hear things are better. God’s peace….


  5. l ron hubbard was a 2nd rate sci-fi writter who wanted to find a way to evade taxes… he created ‘scientology’ as a religion for the tax-exempt status. he wanted to evade death and hell, but he found out the hard way God’s alot harder to fool than the IRS. now that katie is bolting for the doors to escape the nuthouse, i pray that she is able to find Jesus for who He is and what He has done on the cross.


    • When it comes to religions, don’t you just find that one the stupidest ever? I know that isn’t nice, but I can’t help it. I agree. Hubbard was not a good writer. His books make my eyes bleed. Starting a religion based on that garbage is insane. I hope Katie finds the real Lord…I imagine this is even more painful for her since everybody and God gets to watch her divorce. 😦


  6. Bird, I am glad that things are getting better. I have to believe that prayer works. But we can’t let our guard down… we will not allow Satan to come back with fear, doubt and unbelief. Taking one day, one step at a time! 🙂


  7. This was hilarious! I am yet to research scientology, but I have to say, the moment I heard the news anchor say that it was created by a science-fiction author, I’ve been looking at dubiously. And they say we Christians are cookie for our beliefs 😉 LOl!! I’m really happy that things have been going great for you guys, and hey, maybe you can ask him to jump on the couch as your Christmans gift (tell him it’s that or a Harley 😉 )
