This is soooooo right up my alley! This book is going to have to be a must read for me. Lisa’s quirky humor is like a modern day Erma Bombeck. Me likes a good funny.
And it makes me think too. For me personally, it seems I have spent a tremendous amount of time over the years fussing and worrying about “what should be.”
I should be thin.
I should live on a lake.
I should have a better job……blah blah blah
It’s all bunk.
So from the Mommy Molehole I emerge, blinking at the world and rediscovering life like I’ve been in a seven year sleep. This is what I know:
Life is Too Short to buy any clothing that is not comfortable. As a card-carrying-member of the 24/7 Yoga Pants and Hoodie Club, I can assure you an Uncomfortable Mommy and is HellaCrabby Mommy. I go for comfort over fashion any day.
Life is Too Short to NOT have fabulous girlfriends. When you are blue, they will boost your spirits….or dislodge whatever is was you were choking on (making you blue. Get it?). From love and understanding, to the well-placed-but-gentle-time-to-quit-pouting-kick-in-the-pants, good girlfriends are indispensable.
Life is Too Short to fret about the state of your house. By state I don’t mean Minnesota, I mean tidiness. In my house you could probably eat off my floors..literally. As I type this (at the dining room table) I spy an abandoned French Fry, a mummified Fruit Snack, and an item that defies recognition. Yum. Bad housekeeper? NOPE. It just means I play with my kids. Anyone who doesn’t like that can just NOT visit me. Or chat on the front step (a trick my Mom used to use. Thanks Mom).
What do YOU think Life Is Too Short for???
