I’m at an all-day workshop today, so here’s a reblog from two years ago.

Helga: (Sigh) Being the wife of a traveling man is a trade-off…He gets to visit the great cities of Europe for three weeks…and I get a clean house for three weeks!
Only, the house was never clean for three weeks because I always re-arranged the furniture when he was away and it would take days at a time to do each room and the house would be upside down. He would come back and be walking into things and getting into the wrong side of the bed for ages afterwards. Served him right for leaving me alone with a baby and bad telly.
An old favourite from Hi And Lois. I can’t remember the characters’ names but it doesn’t really matter:
Mum (enters room where children are watching television): This program is awfully violent.

Boy: That’s what I call my “Disney Defense.”
Some Peanuts quotes:
My personal favourite, unattributed:
