Maxine, Momma, and Biscuits

I'm a sucker for funny sayings, especially ones that match particular family members and/or friends. I once bought a Maxine soap dispenser for my mom that said "Cleanliness is next to crabbiness". She is quite the neat freak and stresses over it at times. I thought it fit. She probably agreed, though I don't remember if she thought it was very funny at the time I gave it to her.

One that my husband probably feels fits me to a tee is "If Momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy". Well, I can't be the only one because I know he didn't invent that saying so there has to be at least one other mood-altering mother in the world.

I saw another great one yesterday over at my friend Farmchick's place. She has it written on a clever little message board from Pottery Barn that hangs in her kitchen. I told her I wanted to get one just like it for my office. It says, "I ain't a biscuit so don't try and butter me up." I love it!

Well, this non-biscuit is turning in for the night. I think my germy, flu-infected little girl has shared the love with me, if you get my drift. Nighty-night, friends. And if you don't hear from me for a day or two you'll know I'm high on some Tamiflu.

I love funny sayings also! The one from Farmchicks is pretty funny. I'll have to add that one to my fridge!
Hope you get to feeling better soon! You're a mood-altering mother too? So glad I'm not alone!!!
