This One's For The Books!!!

Come on in. Take a load off. Pick your poison... coffee or tea? We've got both! Boy Howdy, was this the time of my life! The cliche Small Thing by Rachel Anne really got my wheels a turnin'! Feast your eyes on this:

Golly Gee Willikers! In a nutshell, I gathered all of the library books and media in our house and returned them! It all boils down to first I thought I bit off more than I could chew! I started going postal since I couldn't put my finger on all of them. My husband told me not to fly off the handle and take it slow and steady, one step at a time! Don't have a cow! Boy, was that just what the doctor ordered! I took a deep breath, and thought, "It's now or never!" We banded together to beat the odds! You sure can't put anything past him! He found the books like a madman! He is really on the ball! I returned 13 books and 2 movies! Boy howdy! I hate to say this, but, that wasn't so bad, now was it? Piece of cake!

(I LOVE cliches! Once, I took a college class with a professor who poured them on thick in his lectures. It was so bad that my girlfriends and I kept a running list of them as he used them. He was serious in his usage, too! He somehow incorporated "throwing the baby out with the bathwater" on a regular basis!!! We followed suit and used them in our language as much as possible!)

hahahaha...made me laugh out loud! For a minute there, I thought I was reading a commencement address (the world's most cliche'd speech).

Boy howdy! Loved this :)

Sorry if this gets posted twice, but Blogger and WordPress have a love-hate relationship.

Love how you killed two birds with one stone by writing about two Home Sanctuary posts in one.

Great work.

Before you put all of your eggs in one basket, stop over for a collapsible market tote giveaway.

When Rachel Anne first suggested the cliche thing...I couldn't think of any...but after reading yours I realized just how many I say on a regular basis and don't even realize!!!hehe

LOL! That was a good one.

And you reminded me to hunt for ED's school library book. Ok, I should insert a cliche here but ... yeah nothing is coming to mind.
