      I live in the United Kingdom. 99% of the time, AC is completely unnecessary.

    Serves him right for teaching her how to play Angry Birds.

    "I love you!"
    It's said ALL the time, even when someone is angry or in trouble.
    When the kids are yelling back and forth at one another, I bust in the middle with an "I love you".  If that doesn't stop the disagreement I have the kids stand face to face and say it to each other. 

    When my hubby is gumpy about work and clearly frustrated - I bust it out - "even though your kinda moody, I still love you!"  or "I love you even when your angry." 

    I mean really, who can stay upset when they are being told they are loved?

    It's such a useful and powerful little phrase & it really keeps things in check around here.

      Very endearing, patient and "above the situation" approach to resolve conflict at home.

    Always put the light off when there´s nobody in the room. Don´t waste energy and money.

    "Who's left the dirty dishes for me, again?" It's all I seem to say nowadays.

      Saving energy, both economically and physically is a wise thing to say.

    "Let's do this!"

    Hubby and I are both procrastinators, but we try to encourage each other to just get it done asap, and have the rest of the day to relax.  big_smile

    "Totally turkey sandwiches!"  Turkey sandwiches are one of my favorite foods - I eat them like every day - so my husband decided to coin the phrase "totally turkey sandwiches" for anything good that happens.  He actually even got me a t-shirt with that saying on the back along with a picture of a turkey sandwich.

    Hey, you.

    This is an endearment and greeting in our house. Whenever one of us comes home, we shout, 'Heeeyy, you!" We say it when we hug, bump into one another, startle each other etc.
