The Easy Way Out

I am trying to keep up with this NaBloPoMo thing, but I currently have 3 sick children and I am running on about 4 hours of sleep. So, I decided to take the easy way out and just post a few of my favorite quotes. Read them all, just skim them, or don't read any. I am going to bed now!

"The hardest years in life are those between ten and seventy." -Helen Hayes

"I refuse to think of them as chin hairs. I think of them as stray eyebrows." -Janette Barber

My second favorite household chore is ironing. My first being hitting my head on the top bunk bed until I faint." -Erma Bombeck

"A man's got to do what a man's got to do. A woman must do what he can't." -Rhonda Hansome

"I'm not going to vacuum 'til Sears makes one you can ride on."
-Roseanne Barr

"I'm not offended by all the dumb blonde jokes because I know I'm not dumb....and I'm also not blonde." -Dolly Parton

"If you can't be a good example, then you'll just have to be a horrible warning." -Catherine Aird

"Mothers of teenagers know why animals eat their young." - Author Unknown

"I want my children to have all the things I couldn't afford. Then I want to move in with them." - Phyllis Diller

"My mother's menu consisted of two choices: Take it or leave it." -Buddy Hackett

"You don't really understand human nature unless you know why a child on a merry-go-round will wave at his parents every time around - and why his parents will always wave back." -William D. Tammeus.

"Raising kids is part joy and part guerilla warfare." -Ed Asner

"People who say they sleep like babies usually don't have them." -Leo J. Burke

"One thing they never tell you about child raising is that for the rest of your life, at the drop of a hat, you are expected to know your child's name and how old he or she is." -Erma Bombeck

NaBloPoMo stands for National Blog Posting Month. It is a month long writing exercise during which bloggers are trying to post something on their blog everyday. If I make it through tomorrow I will have made it half way! :)
