inspiration monday

as i sit here and listen to the pounding and banging due to the repairs that are going on in the house, i'm reminded of this cute little illustration by mary engelbreit......proving that humor and inspiration can be found in just about anything.
even shower floor tiles being ripped up.

What a good attitude you have. Having workman in our home(especially the noisy kind) makes me nuts. Gotta readjust my way of thinking when it comes to this. Thanks

Mary said...

Oh yeah!! Love this!!

Our neighbour is going through the same thing, although the walls are so thin, it might aswell be us too! (^_^)

Have you ever jumped at the sound of a hammer coming down on wood? even when you know it's coming? :o) Have you ever noticed the jumping stops when you're the one hammering?

If you cant beat em, join em! =P

I sure got a chuckle out of this!! It is so true... some things you just keep doing over and over and over.... like going to the grocery store today.... and paying bills...

Lauren Maurer said...
