the wisdom box...

Yes mom, this ones for you. I have lived over half my life satisfied to scrunch toilet paper when I needed to blow. Most of the time I sniff in a lot so it never gets close to the surface, or I have been known to grab a very soft clean rag if it got serious enough.

And yes, I did notice that you would bring your own box of Kleenex from home whenever you spent the night over mine. At first sight, I always felt a little embarrassed that I didn't know any better and I was being a rude host, but you were so matter of fact about it I never put that information in the "I've got to remember this" file.

Now that I'm older, I can't seem to keep up with my own nose anymore. I don't seem to be able to sniff in hard enough and the bathroom is too far away and the rags are even farther. So, in honor of you Mom...I bought a box of Kleenex and I want you to know that I understand your wisdom about needing them stashed all over the house.

Happy Birthday :)

Hey Sweetie.... I must be related to your mom ~~ I have Klenix in the bedroom, living room, bathroom, kitchen, and laundry room... If I had any more rooms I have one there too, but somehow I forget to put them in the car and end up blowing my nose on a starbuck's napkin!!!

Love this post, and that you are back to blessing us with your wisdom and sense of humor!!!

Love you forever
Wanda Mom

I can never seem to remember to buy paper napkins, so we use paper towels all the time.

I do buy tissues but my son prefers his sleeve.

How funny this is! My mom too, keeps a box of tissues in every room. Of course I always thought it was overkill and now as I think of my home, I realize, I am doing the same thing!! Bedrooms, kitchen, and living room all have a box of tissues!! It's funny how we end up so much like our mom's! Thx for sharing, I loved it!
