Captions Everyone Would Want to Read (or not)

The coverage on the soon-to-be first family is cracking me up. Now granted, I was very interested to read about how they move the new presidential family into the White House and the former presidential family out at the same time--IN SIX HOURS!!!!

But I'm not really sure I need to see 25 pictures of their family boarding a plane. You know?

So I got tickled after I got up from the computer and went back to MY daily life. What if reporters were following me around instead of the Obamas?

Oh, it would make for some exciting media, let me tell you!

Just imagine the pictures. Here are some possible captions from my day today. And let's just pretend my name is Michelle Obama because it sounds really good, OK?

*Michelle Obama searches her Texas garage for trash bags after her husband, President Elect Barack Obama moved them without telling her.

*Michelle Obama discusses the state of the living room with daughters Malia (10) and Sasha (7). Both girls will have their own room upon their arrival at the White House on January 20.

*Michelle Obama pulls a box of macaroni and cheese from her Texas pantry to feed her daughters for lunch. At the White House, the Obama family will enjoy a personal chef.

Alright, on second thought...they better just keep running those plane boarding photos.


  1. the why do I do this was posted at 11:09 and the obama post at 12:42.... did ya get all your stuff done?

  2. When I posted this, we were going to the store right after the girls' TV show went off at 1:00.

    The ONLY thing I haven't gotten done is to buy Trumpet of the Swan!
    Gonna look in the attic tonight, I hope.

  3. Yeah!!! kate actually finished the book. I tried to get her to stay within our chapters but she said she just couldnt! matt on the other hand I am having to make sure he reads his chapter each time!

    awesome on your very productive day!

  4. So, if you can finish school, clean the living room, go shopping, and blog all within an hour... why not fly over here and show me how it's done (:
    Honestly, I think a maid and personal chef might help out us homeschoolers...
    And, I am glad to be reminded that others are constantly having to juggle housework, errand and schooling (:
    Nice family photo in the living room, by the way.

  5. Brenda, great thoughts to ponder on, thanks for sharing it. I felt a little convicted when someone shared that we dress how we feel :^O , then you share that awful cartoon of the housewife greeting her GI, lol...I think I better dress how I 'wanna' feel instead...pretty and feminine!
    Blessings, Sheri


I don't get to talk to a lot of actual grown-ups during the day, so your comments make me really happy! :)
