A glimpse into my Saturday morning--just because. And yes, much to my husband's amusement, I said the above quote while we were all eating (or attempting to eat) breakfast. As a side note, I believe it might be time to vacuum a certain corner of my kitchen.
P.S. For the life of me, I could not convince that opening quotation mark that it is not, in fact, a closing quotation mark.
