Responsibility 199, what is it?

Responsibility 199 is a belief; I believe that to be healthy and to increase my longevity I need to weigh 199 pounds or less...
Responsibility 199 is a need; I need to reduce my weight, reduce my percentage of body fat, and the elevated threat of disease my present condition presents...
Responsibility 199 is a mission; I recognize that achieving 199 will be a challenge, perhaps the hardest I have ever undertaken...
Responsibility 199 is a commitment; I acknowledge that I must commit to action, commit to change, commit to myself and those I love to achieve this mission, to increase my longevity...
Responsibility 199 is ME.

Day 281 - Saturday Is Supposed To Be FUN

Saturday is for fun, or so I hear. So what are we doing today?

My wife just did the bills and is working on our taxes, she is an accountant type person; still not even she finds that fun.

My one son is at a wrestling meet, it is late in the season and he so wants it to be over; so he is not having as much fun as he wants.

My other one son is sick with a cold, just woke up feeling it this morning; so not fun for him. I think I know who he got it from.

My other other one son is still asleep, slacker; perhaps he is having a fun dream.

My daughter went to a sleepover last night at a friends house, which means they probably went to bed at 5 a.m.; likely she had fun.

My cats, oh they are all asleep of course; soon I'll sprinkle catnip on the carpet for my own entertainment - meow.

Myself, SICK! It's been creeping in over the past two days and settled in last night. So blahs'ville for me today. In the picture up top there is Me, hello; settling in to munch some steel-cut oatmeal w/ strawberries & honey before busting out this post.

Yeah, not happy about the fun-o-meter dipping south at the moment, it happens. Even so, I am game for a laugh. I saw this recently, I think on Facebook; I forget who I lifted it from so not sure who to credit, heck it may have been one of you. I got a giggle out of it, and as I currently feel like one of these glasses; seems like a good time to share it. Hope you enjoy too...


Responsibility 199 - Gotta Do It!!


  1. Well at least you can watch da Bears this weekend. As a Vikes fan I hope Peppers has a career ending knee injury (that would never effect daily life though), but only after he rips Aaron Rodgers right arm off and smacks 4 concusions into that nelson twin reject linebacker Matthews.

    Have a good weekend!

  2. Sorry to hear your day is kinda blah man! Keep your head know it's just one of those days.

    HAHAHA, I am so stealing that picture from you, and hence stealing it from whoever you stole it from, which they probably stole it.....

    Hope your day gets better!

  3. I am certain it is piss!
    Better pissed off than pissed on!

  4. Sorry you aren't feeling well, Patrick. Hubby just emailed that he feels like he is coming down with something too. I wish you a speedy recovery. :)

  5. Thank you so much for your comments--it helps me know others have survied this misery!

    LOVE the cartoon. I call myself a realist and I just laughed reading that!

  6. Sorry you aren't feeling well. Love the cartoon.

  7. Hope your feeling better! Enjoy putting your feet up and watching the game :)

  8. Hope next weekend is better for all of you!

    Mildred, one of my four cats, is a hardcore catnip stoner. Not content with sniffing/rubbing/delicately nibbling the tasty buds of catnip I present her with, it's jaws open wide and the stuff is GONE!

  9. Great picture! Sunday is our fun day. Or at least we try to do something fun. My idea, like one of your sons, is to sleep in. Cheers, Rick

  10. Get better today, so you can have some fun tomorrow!!

    Take care!

  11. Being the realist here, I am such a DOPE! Oh gosh, someone left a comment on my blog, and when I clicked on his link, there was your blog listed. I didn't catch that your blog was one that he followed, not his blog. I just figured it out when I read the comment from Patrick and his name was Rick.

    So there you have it--a weird comment from a crazy-on-drugs woman who doesn't read carefully.

    Hope this brought some fun to your day.

  12. OMG, I cackled out loud at that poster. Hubby came in to see and he chuckled. I said, "That is so me.! I'm the one saying, "Um, guys, this is piss." hhahahahhaha

    Anyway, when hubby is feeling not so great and not so fun, I just rub his hair and smooch his forehead and cheeks and rub his neck and back gently and tell him over and over all the wonderful, amazing things he is until he takes a nap and forgets the day is shit. Then chill a healthy berry-banana smoothie for when he wakes up thirsty.

    So, just show this comment to the Mrs. :D Maybe she'll get a notion... heh heh

  13. That cartoon is totally cracking me up. LOL I'm so sorry you're not feeling well. Sending a ton of hugs and cyber chicken soup your way! Feel better soon! *HUGS*

  14. Awww, Patrick, hope you feel well soon. So many people are sick. You are still so funny, even when you are sick. I'm sending cyber chicken soup with Stephanie too.

  15. OMG, you are soooooooooooooo funny Patrick! Love that pic of you & LOVE that other one. LOVE IT! I may sneak it form you in the future!

    Hope you feel better soon! It sucks to be sick.

    I won't tell you about the CA weather here..... may make for you being mad at me & more no fun for you!;-)

  16. Sick, yuck!
    Bears, hey better them than the Packers
    cartoon, too funny!

  17. eek, does not sound like a fun day in your house at all! I am enjoying this weekend. I have just finished up a really difficult and demanding class at school, so this is the first real weekend I've had in a while! Hope you feel better soon!

  18. OMG!! Patrick I almost spit out my food laughing.... LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL

  19. Love the post but so sorry you're under the weather! Stay warm & cozy this weekend, hope you feel better.

  20. I'm not feeling tip-top either so today is sorta a blah day too. Still playing on the computer though, looking and learning. Was going to go moonlight skiing but at -10 right now think I'll skip it since I'm also not feeling good and don't want whatever is lurking around the corner. My son had a great day, had his cousin over and they went snowmobiling, playing games and just putzing around. My hubby worked 1/2 day, and sales were good so he was happy and now playing in his garage, he's having fun. So at least someone is.
    I hope you're day got better or at least you napped it away so your didn't get worser. Take care and have a blessed evening.

  21. Have you tried the Vicks on the feet followed by warm socks thing? Get well soon!

  22. OMG I love the photo!!! I'm definitely a "I think this is piss!" kind of person, around those that really know me at least ;) I TRY so hard to be positive though.. that's what the pills are for I guess, heh.

    Sorry you're feeling sick- blame the offspring!! LMAO!
