Stick It To Me

Once again it’s time for Post-It Note Tuesday with all thanks going to SupahMommy!!!  Click on this stickie to play along:
superstickies-18-1As for my stickies this week, I have a variety!  First of all, what’s always on my mind is my diet….not as in D-I-E-T, the four letter word, but as in what I consume on a daily basis which in fact relates to my ridiculous lifestyle change.
superstickies1superstickies2superstickies3It’s hard sticking to the “good foods” or shall I say the “foods that are good for you” because we all know the “good foods” are NOT good for you.  (don’t get me talking about wings again….)
But so far, this is the outcome:
superstickies4Can’t argue with that, now can we??

So, today I noticed that somehow things around this house have gotten out of control.  I’m not talking about the “people” here…they will forever be out of control.  I’m talking about STUFF!  There is stuff everywhere.  It’s in spaces that used to be free of STUFF!  It’s in spaces that didn’t have room for any more STUFF.  How did this happen??
superstickies5superstickies6superstickies7I kid you not.  When it comes to the spouse, there is no routine….no consistency……everyday he starts over as if he just got here.  I tell him over and over, the garbage bags are kept here.  No, I never move them.    The children eat 3 meals a day….yes, honey, everyday.  The toddlers still wear diapers which need to be checked and changed as needed.  No, Lil Lady has not learned to pee on the potty yet.  That right there on the counter?  Yes, that is the bread box where the bread goes after you make your lunch each morning.  It’s not new….no, I haven’t moved it, so please return the bread to it DAILY. 
superstickies8superstickies9As for the children??  Well, they also put the same amount of enthusiasm toward each day, although they don’t know when to call it quits.  I seriously thought that children slept.  I know I did when I was a child.  Why don’t they?? 

So, I know my children are full of energy and they can get on anyone’s last nerve.  I give my babysitter alot of credit for what she accomplishes each day with them, BUT….and this is a big BUT (not a big BUTT)….when you are a babysitter, you need to remember that it’s not cool to lose your cool… no no!  And furthermore, YOU are getting paid for doing a JOB.  Bottom line…superstickies14superstickies15superstickies16superstickies17

After spending several days of cleaning, picking up after 2 toddlers, a tween and a spouse that lives each day as if he’s never done it before, I’ve come up with a few rules for the household.  I’m sure you can all relate.
In regards to the trashcan in the bathroom…..
In regards to everything I find left on the kitchen counter or the stovetop……superstickies19
For the spouse and the tween….
superstickies20For anybody that is willing to take notice….

Put a password on the computer that way Babysitter can't fuck up $$$ piece of equipment.

I love these sticky notes, too. I love reading other people's. Don't you wish we could communicate in really life with Sticky Notes...with our kids, our co-workers, our students, our significant others...but not our friends. I love really talking with my friends.
