Life Lessons

Very important things I have learned during my 37 years of life...


Never say maybe to a kid. Maybe=yes in their eyes.

Always go for the epidural.

If the milk looks bad, it probably is.

When squeegee-ing, keep your squeegee at a 40 degree angle. (or was it 30?)

When company comes over, closets and drawers hide a multitude of sins.

Listen your intuition - it knows more than you do.

Never say maybe to your husband. Maybe=yes in their eyes.

Laundry is like that mean teacher in highschool, it will never cut you some slack.

Never say "Let's try something different" to your hairdresser.

Nurture your friendships - good friends are the ones who will keep you sane.

Raw oysters will NEVER taste good. No matter what.

Whenever you think drinking tequila is a good thing, it's not. It never is.

There's nothing wrong with cookies for breakfast.

Never be afraid to try something new. (except raw oysters)

Never play with matches.

Don't sweat the small stuff. In one hundred years we'll all be dead and no-one will care if your souffle fell.

Never piss off your waiter or waitress. Never!

If it looks too good to be true - it is.

Appreciate the small things, it lowers your expectations.

Don't worry. Be happy.

Darn, I missed the boat on Number 2, no epidural for me baby!

Great life lessons, don't forget to sing along to your favorite songs, even if you are off-key. That's important.

And pay your bills on time. That's also a good one.
