I can't believe we're already coming up on Memorial Day weekend! Somehow, even with school still in session, this holiday makes me feel like summer has begun. The pool at our park opening up probably has something to do with that (it's all my boys are talking about :). However, they still have 3 more weeks of homework to focus on. I may have to resort to bribery. Summer fever is much worse than spring fever LOL.
Now, as a mom, I'm not sure what's worse...dealing with micromanaging the school, homework and schedule demands of three kids when school is in session or dealing with an entire summer of...well, you know what I mean. I have three boys. Enough said.
My magic coping mechanism is humor. I especially love funny quotes because they have a way of changing our perspective and attitude so quickly. And laughter is always energizing. Of course, I'm only human and sometimes, as organized as I try to be, humor gets lost with my car keys ;).
Now, here are a few quotes to get you through life's zits with a smile and kick off your long weekend on a happy note...
This one I plan on hanging or stenciling somewhere in my kitchen (without the tiger pic of course):
Welcome to the Karma Cafe!
There is no menu.
You get what you deserve.
You think my boys will get the message? LOL :).
And a few more for parents forgetting to eat right and sleep well because they're too busy trying to keep up with kids:
"Cleaning the house while your kids are still home is like shoveling while it's still snowing."
"Never, under any circumstance, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night."
No chuckles yet? Come on! Laughter beats prescriptions. Okay, one more for fellow writers (and chicken lovers) struggling with GMC (goal, motivation and conflict for anyone not familiar). This one I plan to hang over the roosts where my chickens sleep in their newly built coop:
And with that, I leave you all to enjoy a wonderful, long weekend. I'm so thankful for the heroes who have given their lives to make ours better.
