Fly On The Wall In Party Town

Welcome to another group posting of Fly On The Wall! Thirteen brave bloggers are once again inviting you into their homes for a sneak peek at what goes on behind their closed doors.

This month the fly got dizzy trying to keep up with the Doyles. We've been celebrating lots of family  birthdays in October and having a wee bit too much fun. I'm enjoying a mini stay-at-home vacation while my editor finishes tackling my Spandex book. We're in the home stretch and things are about to get REAL. Did I mention that I'm scared to death? No worries---it's all good. Next month I'll be sharing some exciting news, so stay tuned, my friends.

In the meantime, I have some snippets of conversations that were heard by that nosey fly when he was buzzing around my house. Here is some of what he overheard:



"Zip Lining gives you the world's worst wedgie."

"I think there should be an Octoberfest every month. Novemberfest, Decemberfest, Januaryfest…."


"Whenever I take my laptop outside, I can't Wi-Fi.  All I get is the spinning wheel of death on my screen."

"You need to do something about that loose toenail. It looks like a tortilla chip on your foot."

"I hate dieting. My stomach is so hungry, it's eating itself."

"Who left that nasty turd bomb in the toilet bowl?"

"Pretending I'm a pleasant person all day is exhausting."

"If it walks out of the refrigerator, it's well past its expiration date."

"If God wanted me to touch my toes, He would have put them on my knee caps."

"You know that saying, 'When the shit hits the fan'? Why would anyone want to throw poop at a fan?"

"Of course, the garden looks great…..I'm the plant whisperer, after all."

"Note to self: Just because the zumba teacher is twerking in class does not mean that I have to. My back will never be the same."

"Stop rubbing my leg with your wolverine toes."

"This house runs on love, laughter and chilled bottles of wine."

  4. I always tell Mark to keep his Chewbacca toes off of me. LOL. I feel the same way about dieting; it feels like my insides are getting eaten away...I need those parts man!
    Can't wait for your news next month. As always, I'm so proud of you. Everything that comes out of all of this is going to be nothing short of spectacular.n<3

  5. Hi Marcia! You had me at chilled wine. I usually drink red, but still like it nice and cold. Ahhh...that would make my house run a lot better too!
    I'm looking forward to your book launch, I'm sure it will be a smash hit. Enjoy your quiet time now!
    Blessings,

  6. "Love, laughter and chilled bottles of wine" reminded me of my new favorite restaurant on Vancouver Island. They say it offers the basics - food, wine, shelter - at their best. Now your house can beat that anytime, I'm sure.

  8. You realize, of course, that everytime I hear the expression about the fan I am going to remember what you said -- WHY would any one throw poop at a fan? Thanks for allowing us to enjoy your craziness

    1. It's true though, right? Who on earth would have invented that saying…and better yet,WHY?

  20. We call those (toenails) bed sheet cutters. Break out the hack saw, we got some work to do. I wonder if you have to pay extra for a pedicure on a foot like that? Thanks for the laughs Marcia!
