And, here we have the kitchen/dining room quotes. Thanks again to Ian for taking the pictures. The quotes are as follows:
Starting in front of the stove . . .
I love you like a fat kid loves cake. CHOCOLATE!
Cheese, milk’s leap toward immortality.
Seize the moment. Remember all of those women on the “Titanic” who waved off the dessert cart. (Erma Bombeck)
Merlin’s Pants! (Dumbledore/JK Rowling)
Those who forget the pasta are condemned to reheat it. (Bad, I know, but funny to me)
Truth does not change according to our ability to stomach it. (Flannery O’Connor)
Only dull people are brilliant at breakfast. (Oscar Wilde)
Happiness is wanting what you have.
Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana. (Groucho Marx)
Give me liberty or . . . oooooo a jelly donut? (Homer Simpson)
In acticis dentibus frustrum magnum spinaciae habes. (You have a big piece of spinach in your teeth – in Latin)
Life is good.
ETA (Edited to Add) – Forgot my quote over the fridge – my favorite line from one of my most favorite movies, The Godfather. “Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.”
Okey-dokey – I think I’m done with the hard labor until after vacation! How crazy is that? I’ve been tiling or painting or something since April!!!!!
My last quote in the living room will be one I’ve had on the walls since I started doing this – “I’m not much, but I’m all I think about.” For me, it’s a good reminder to get a grip and worry about what’s important and, mostly, that is not myself. I hope the kids pick it up too. (Thanks, Julie!)
Let’s talk tomorrow about disposable clothing for pre-teens and early teens. I know I’ve mentioned it before, but now I’m there with Andy. Anyone else resent paying for something you KNOW is only going to fit your kid for a couple of weeks?
