Now back to our days as they are!
Cliche Day:
Whats your favorite cliche? I think mine is *it is what it is* because sometimes that IS life, it sucks, but we have to suck it up and deal with it (along the same lines, my moms is *put on your big girl panties and deal with it*)
Now here is where I think its FUNNY......today is not just Sandwich Day but Men Make Dinner Day.......guess what, if your hubby isnt a cook, you will most likely be getting a sandwich! Oh and its also Housewifes Day.........honey, you is screwed, lol.

A few of my favorite sandwiches:
Good ole fashioned PBJ
Fluffernutter (explained that one on Oct 31, but to reiterate, simply peanut butter, bread, marshmallow cream, made into a sandwich)
Ham on Rye with mustard
Rueben
Hamburger
Shrimp Po'Boy
What are some of your favorites?

Okay, now Im gonna do one of the Weeks, since there are so many, lol, just going to pick one.
National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week:
Im not much for Peta, and extremely fanatical about animals, but I do like them. Here at home we have two dogs and a cat. We did have one puppy earlier, but this past Sunday night/Monday morning she got out a hole in our fence and got run over. She was a cute little chocolate lab, loveable as could be, lick you to death as to do anything else, lol. Her name was Sweet Georgia Brown, but we called her Gigi, I will miss you Gigi!
If you are an animal lover, please, get your animals fixed, treat them well, take care of them, and please get your pets from a shelter!
