I talk to myself because sometimes I need expert advice.

Sometimes I roll my eyes out loud.

I don’t need anger management. I need people to stop pissing me off.

My people skills are just fine. It’s my tolerance of idiots that needs work.

The biggest lie I tell myself is, “I don’t need to write that down, I’ll remember it.”

When I was a child I thought nap time was punishment. Now it’s like a mini-vacation.

The day the world runs out of wine is just too terrible to think about.

Even duct tape can’t fix stupid, but it can muffle the sound.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could put ourselves through the dryer for ten minutes, and come out wrinkle free and three sizes smaller?

“Getting lucky” means walking into a room and remembering why I’m there.

    I have to write down EVERYthing. And chase it with a glass of wine so everyone seems nicer than they are… and smarter. πŸ™‚

    big hugs hon xoxo

      I think I'll try that wine thing. I was talking to a dim light bulb the other day. πŸ™‚

    Those are terrific statements now. The last one is my favorite. Sandee, you and Zane have a fantastic week end.

      It happens a lot that last one. πŸ™‚

    I talk to myself because some days, I'm the only one who is listening to me.

    • April 16, 2016 at 10:22 am

      There is that. I do the same thing sometimes. πŸ™‚

    • April 16, 2016 at 11:40 am

      If I don't write something down, I forget it. If I do write it down, I lose it. It's kind of a no win situation. πŸ™‚

    • April 17, 2016 at 8:10 am

      We are much alike where this is concerned. Hubby is even worse. πŸ™‚

    oh now you know I love these. Every one of them belongs on one of my index cards and I saved a copy of this so if I ever get back to making them I can use these πŸ™‚

    • April 16, 2016 at 10:23 am

      I thought of you and your index cards when I found this. πŸ™‚

    "I don't need to write that down, I'll remember it." – This is so true for me! I also liked the one about rolling your eyes out loud. Cheers -Ellen

      Both are good and I've done both more than once. πŸ™‚

      They are some good ones aren't they. πŸ™‚

    Those are great, I agree. Except naps, I have always enjoyed those even as a child.

    • April 16, 2016 at 10:26 am

      I don't nap very often, but I love them when I do. πŸ™‚

    I love those. Are eye rolls considered exercises if you do them out loud?

    • April 16, 2016 at 10:26 am

      Why not. It's movement, so it's exercise. πŸ™‚

    I remember nothing and duck tape is pretty much the best thing EVER!

    • April 16, 2016 at 10:39 am

      Duct tap is the very best of all things. πŸ™‚

  12. April 16, 2016 at 7:53 am

    True. I share the views of the author.
    Have a great day!

    • April 16, 2016 at 10:39 am

      You have a great day too. πŸ™‚

  13. April 16, 2016 at 7:57 am

    I write it down then forget where I put it.

    • April 16, 2016 at 10:39 am

      I've done that too. πŸ™‚

  14. April 16, 2016 at 9:00 am

    I'd like to see the world run out of whine.

    • April 16, 2016 at 10:40 am

      I would too Joe. πŸ™‚

    These are great. For some strange reason my memory is better than usual. Have a wonderful week end. Big ol' TEXAS hugs to you.

    • April 17, 2016 at 8:06 am

      I'm happy your memory is better. That is really great.

      Thanks for the big ol' TEXAS hugs. πŸ™‚

    When we were in China a fellow touristor's mother was there with her and hubby. When the mother talked with us she took notes about us and our conversation. I'm not sure how or if she used them. She did get lost in a city market for several hours once. Our bus waited for her to be found.
    I'm glad you could still remember making prank Prince Albert calls.

    • April 17, 2016 at 8:07 am

      Well bless her heart. Now you see why she was writing everything down. πŸ™‚

  18. April 16, 2016 at 3:10 pm

    LOL!!! These are great! πŸ™‚

  19. April 16, 2016 at 5:32 pm

    I talk to myself when I am thinking aloud. I do roll my eyes at times. I gave up writing on pieces of paper because it doesn't help me but now I have smart phone reminder which works for me. Naps? I am beginning to enjoy naps when I couldn't keep my eyes open at anytime of the day!

    • April 17, 2016 at 8:08 am

      Lots of folks use their smart phones to remember stuff. Great idea. πŸ™‚

  20. April 17, 2016 at 4:43 am

    I resemble too many of these!!! Sheesh. Gettin old sucks. Keep'em comin!

    Big hugs, honey…

    • April 17, 2016 at 8:08 am

      Me too honey. Getting old sucks but the alternative is even worse. πŸ™‚

  21. April 18, 2016 at 10:43 am

    I hear you, sister. We're in the same boat.

    • April 19, 2016 at 7:37 am

      Yes we are unfortunately. πŸ™‚

  22. April 18, 2016 at 12:35 pm

    love all of these! I write notes to myself…maybe I should do that also when going from one room to another!

    • April 19, 2016 at 7:37 am

      Getting old isn't for sissies. πŸ™‚

  23. April 18, 2016 at 3:25 pm

    Aged like a fine wine.
