quote of the week...

"Be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled...will disappear all too soon. And that you will, to your surprise, miss them profoundly."

--Thomas S. Monson

Living My Dream said...

I was looking at a couch overflowing with clean laundry (and knowing the laundry room was overflowing with dirty laundry) when I heard him say this... and I laughed! I may miss THE REASON I have that laundry, but I am not so sure I will miss the actual laundry when I am no longer doing laundry for 15 or so people! :)

Hey stud muffin, did you see that you won the GC quote prize on "Is It Just Me?" Nice. What did you win?

Yeah, that comment reached out and grabbed my face as well.

I even had a blog post I've been planning called "The Things I Won't Miss", with pictures of my youngest playing in the toilet, pulling books off shelves, drawing on the wall.... Now I think I'm going to change the title.
