Super Hot Post Its!

The following are notes that appeared around our house this week, that could have been on Post It Notes:
When my son turned 20 recently, he wasn't quite ready financially to move out on his own, but decided it would be more manly to live full time at his dad's. After he left I saw this note on our little menu board in the kitchen. That was over a month ago and I can't bring myself to erase it. I see the child in the handwriting and a glimpse of the man in the words.
My brother left this note taped to the fridge for Sissa (my 18 year old). She's not home much and when she does breeze in, she goes straight to the fridge to scarf whatever leftovers she can find. Her only chores in the house are to clean the litterbox, her room, and her half of the bathroom. My brother wanted to ensure the litterbox got done.
This note actually is on a Post It. Although it appears to be a Post It note intervention from my family to me, I assure you, it's not. Since food and drinks get consumed at an alarming rate around our house, anything a person doesn't want consumed had better have a note on it saying so. Even then, it's only safe for about an hour. This is stuck to the wall by the fridge for my brother to conveniently slap on whatever juice he's purchased for himself.

The following notes are from me to the Universe since it seems intent on kicking my arse this week:

 **Did I mention that it's about 108 degrees here in the Desert? No? I must have forgot that little detail in my heat stroke induced delerium.

Pretty funny - sounds a bit like our house, except for the air conditioning. Luckily we just open our windows and get a nice, cool, breeze. Happy Birthday!

Yay!!! Post it Tuesday is back, oh how I've missed you. Congrats to your son on trying to take the next step to independence. I am the cleaner of the litter box in our house so I understand your daughter's desire to avoid it. Your weight loss/electric bill/broken ac situation reminds me of a book or movie. I can't think of what it is, but the person technically got what they wished for, but it came with lots of negative stuff.

Happy Early Birthday!!!!!!

I hope the AC gets fixed quickly...and that your birthday is a great one!

I have litter box duty here...or it would never get done.

$1700???? yikes! you could always try that bikram yoga that they do in like 95 degree rooms (like your house probably is)! it's supposed to work wonders!

and i TOTALLY thought that the first note had to be written by an 8 year old.
