I am under a gray cloud covered sky, this dreary Friday, and I woke up way to early to be any fun for a day off.  Taking my lemons and, not making lemonade, I have been cleaning house. Under this umbrella falls the job of vacuuming and mopping, the absolute worst job.  If there is one thing that will drain the creativity right out of a person it is the drudgery of house chores....ugh

This weekend we honor mothers, and since I don't have anything new artistically to share today I am dedicating this post to all the mothers, daughters, wives, sisters, aunts, grandmothers and anyone else I forgot to list. 

My kids say that this card describes me....I agree!

I would love to hear from any kid, grown or otherwise who has never experienced the "mom spit"! I've always heard if this stuff could be bottled it could fix the world. 

I was dating a transvestite, and my mother said, Marry Him, you will double your wardrobe

I ask people why they have deer heads on the walls. They always say they are such beautiful animals. There ya go...I like my mother, BUT I have photographs!

Happy Mother's Day to my Mom!

Peace and happy mother's day weekend,
