Writing on the Walls II

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 . . .
Est. 1990.
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?

  1. I LOVE the quotes! They look so great. What a clever idea. Thanks for the tutorial a couple of posts back, I'm going to file that away for when my creative juices start flowing again. I never would have thought of it and it's really a sensible way to do that. Can you imagine, sensible? Me? HA!

    Have you made the slip covers yet? I'm dying to know how they turned out. Post photos!

  2. Great quotes……..I'm SO with you on the clothing. Sean is growing like crazy (thank goodness, he's in shorts 98% of the time) and in that weird transition to men's sizes. And don't ask me about Maggie and her insistance upon growing rapidly.

  3. Oh Joy . . . I think there is a reason God only gave me boys. I would not know what to do with a girl for even a day.

    Mom1 – slip covers are coming after vacation. I'm kind of nervous and excited to try them. Look for pics and tutorials in the near future.
