fun with quotes.

It's Friday night. I'm married with children... so what I should reeeally be doing right now is cleaning up the mess from dinner, or the mess from that last 10 minutes of "play" before bedtime... which usually produces more mess than an entire day's worth of play altogether, or I could be spending some quality time with the hubs... but after a long week, he has passed out with the kids. Literally. He is probably sleeping next to Teo, the two of them snuggled up together in Teo's twin bed. It is a precious sight. But, it means that I am left with some time to be productive... or not. Right now, I choose "not". It's been a productive-enough day for me thus far. So, I decided to waste some time on the internet looking up quotes. Hahaha - obviously, I am super cool and equally exciting. I'm sure you would agree. :P

So here are my faves for the night... Maybe you'll like a few, too. Or maybe your suspicions about my weirdness will just finally be confirmed. Either way, enjoy!
