A Day Late and a Dollar Short

Well, I'm posting late today. My kids went back to school on Wednesday, and it has thrown me totally off schedule. I hardly know what day it is! :)

Being late reminded me of an expression my mom often uses: I'm a day late and a dollar short.

So I wondered if you'd share some of your favorite expressions you've picked up from your parents, grandparents, friends, other family (maybe even your own kids!). Please share! I'm always looking for fun expressions to use in my books.

Missy's recent release, A Forever Christmas, is still available. Why not snuggle up during this terribly cold weather and extend the holiday season!

Part of the excitement (and confusion) of today was that we had snow. And now school is cancelled for tomorrow! LOL So it'll be like Christmas vacation all over again. :)

Can't believe you guys had it off until Wednesday AND had it off today! NOT FAIR!!!! Lol : ) We've been back since Monday, but glad it's the weekend.

Fave expressions...hmmmm...not quite sure...I'll think about it and get back to ya on that one...

Yes, my kids are spoiled. They'll have a terrible time going back on Monday! :)

I had to chuckle at your post, Missy, because whenever I arrive late for Sunday School, I use that same phrase (a day late and a dollar short)! Years ago I heard an older lady at my former church say that, and it just "stuck" in my mind,LOL. ~ Can you believe we've had SNOW here in Georgia!?! My son loved having the day off from school. Hugs, Patti Jo :)

I know, Patti Jo! My cp sent me a photo of her driveway this morning. She's in Ball Ground and couldn't get out to go to work.
