More Excuses

Filed under: Uncategorized — Laura R @ 8:18 AM

I am having a bad day week  month lifetime / winter.

I am grumpy.

When I saw this sign on Catherine’s blog  I could not resist claiming it myself.

Let me add,  altering those testicles does not solve all the problems.
I wish there was a way to do some fine tuning. 

Please visit Jim’s Blog  to guess How Many Biscuits are in the vintage jar.

  2. Ah, the winter blues and grumps. I always found myself there towards the end of January – beginning of February. A good thaw and some sunshine will do wonders! Sorry about the testicles, can’t help you there.

  9. I am sorry to read that things have not perked up for you. This IS being a particularly trying winter, but spring WILL come, of that I am sure.

  10. I love it! I too have been feeling grumpy and out of sorts. I hope it passes for both of us quickly!

  11. Agreed! I have the most trouble from the testicles around here, but the tires are not far behind.

  12. That’s HILARIOUS!!! =)

    I heard somewhere a while back “I’m not single, I’m romantically challenged” & I’ve claimed that one for myself every since! The word play is just so funny!!!

    I’m so glad you found Barn Charm & I’m looking forward to your shots! =)

  13. gotta get one of those signs! it may give us temporary relief with giving an alteration, but then they tend to bite us back once healed! LOL.. sending you some “sunny hugs” and hope we both see the sunshine soon! it does help with the grumps, esp with the outlook. thanks for the linking up sweets!

  22. My troubles started when I found out that girls don’t have testicles. In my old age I’m beginning to realize that some do.

  26. Hey D’sMom ~~ Wow, you must have been having things bad to claim that sign! 🙂
    Speaking of things with tires or testicles, did you happen to watch Regis (without Regis) and Kelly this morning? NYC had nineteen (19) inches of snow last night. Kelly and her husband, Mark, stayed in a hotel so she could do the show this morning. They left their car on the street and it was covered with snow this morning. Mark had it shoveled out within the hour of the broadcast.
    Kelly said shoveling snow will burn 400 calories an hour.
    I just saw here tonight–I’m catching up on comments, thank you very much for yours–that you were plugging my contest. I will have to see my SightMeter to see how many came from you. I had a big day Tuesday but I only save the last 100 visitors. I will see.

  27. I couldn’t tell as the 25th had rolled off. But there was one each the 26th and 27th.
    Thank you. I really do appreciate your doing it. 🙂

  28. I love that sign! My neighbor and best friend has the same one in her house. She has a house full of girls 🙂

  29. I just went on a weekend escape… and came back to more problems (unfortunately, I can’t blame any tires or testicles…)
