I've always loved Erma Bombeck

I read this quote on someone else's site. I love it. It characterizes my family well & keeps me from feeling like we're, well, strange.

The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together. ~Erma Bombeck
