WFMom said...

Your Mom is one smart cookie, and she sounds oddly familiar to mine. GREAT LIST!

Neila said...

That is all too familiar. I think my mother used every single one of those phrases. The sad thing is that I find myself spewing them out, too. I have used 3, 5, and 9 just recently.

katherine. said...

the envy one is a crackup


Lucky for you to have a great mom. Envy is really one thing that can break one person.

Damozel said...

Your mom's gonna love this one!

By the way, thanks for the "I follow." I wish typepad would make it possible---no plug-ins currently exist.

Gattina said...

Your mother seems to be a charming person, lol ! I wonder why she married your father when he was that horrible !

IRENE said...

Oh my Gosh!
You've put a smile on my face! Great piece of humor. I am glad I stopped by!
