I just got a cute cat picture from my sister-in-law. The cat is upside down on a windowsill, and the quote says:
"Sometimes I pretend to be normal; but then it gets b-o-r-i-n-g, so I go back to being me."
I think that's pretty good. And being me means I make an effort to work on our budget and buy groceries on sale with coupons. I don't care if family and friends think I'm a geek.
