Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Mailbox Monday

I was working on this very late last night after a long weekend of not feeling well and traveling to see my nephew's hockey game. I always have trouble sleeping so I thought I could finish this up before I went to bed. I got very tired and started to nod off a few times. I finally gave up and saved it to finish today. I'm so glad I did because I had been very creative, especially with my spelling! Fortunately I didn't hit publish because it may have been worth a good laugh but no one would have been able to understand it. I don't think my Spellcheck would have picked up that Mornnf was supposed to be Monday. And that's only one example. Eek!
