The Top Seven Things I Want On My Gravestone: Because ten would be in poor taste

Afternoon Readers,

In an attempt to celebrate the end of a workweek that will continue into Saturday, pass through Sunday, and end up at Monday, I posted the above picture on Facebook this morning. Due to the positive response it received, I'll go ahead and state that my Readers have the best sense of humor in the history of senses of humor.

And, while the picture is hilarious, it got me thinking about my mortality and the final message I'll leave the world when my time comes.

Because, when it it's all said and done, my gravestone will also be my final blog post, the last, solitary, mark I was ever here, incessantly folding towels and perpetually in pajamas. Husband has strict instructions not to deviate from the fact I want something interesting on my final marker. He does, however, get wiggle room in the form of this list.

He may choose one of the following...




1.) "She should've slept when the baby slept."

2.) "Here lies our mother. She died doing what she loved. Our dishes will never be as clean."

3.) "She embraced death as she had embraced life, with an arm-load of dirty laundry."

4.) "This isn't what I meant when I said I wanted to get dressed to go out."

5.) "You're blocking my light. I'm trying to read in here."

6.) "I don't know. Go ask you're father."

7.) "Finally, some peace and quiet."


Until Next Time, Readers!

  1. #5 and #6 please. You are going to offer grave writing services, I hope.

    1. Just a little bit of quiet. That's all we're looking for.

  4. I love this list. Very funny. I have only seen funny tombstones a few times. I think I need to make a list of my own.

    1. Haha...I'll probably be a little more aware from now on. I won't be able to help myself.

  5. Hahahahaha seriously. I'm so cynical some days I have trouble actually laughing out loud but this is great. I even set down my load of dirty laundry to type a comment which is news in and of itself.

    1. Well then, I'm terribly flattered! I rarely set down the laundry for anything but catching a child falling off of something.

  8. Youve got me pondering very deeply now...what would i put on MY gravestone? Love this, LOL. Might have to 'borrow' this idea and blog about my own much less funny gravestone ideas!

  9. Oh my goodness this was great! And I am so relieved to find someone who finds this mess funny. We too were inspired by the Holler guy (he gets around)and wrote a post, but it fell kind of flat . . . with a corpse-like thud. We have a Pinterest board called Tombstone Credit. #5 and #6 killed me. . . yeah I'm going to stop talking now. Ellen

  10. I'm dying. The first pic alone is enough to make me laugh no matter how badly my toddlers are tantruming. You are brilliant!

  11. CLASSIC! "Go ask your father"...definitely my favorite! I had not seen the Holler pic before, but that's great too. Love it!

  12. "Holler!" That is fantastic. Love the list!

  13. That picture is ah-mazing. I can't pick a favorite. I think it's a tie between 1 and 3.
