Note to Self:

Turn on the outside light before leaving the house at 4:00 pm to grocery shop. It is dark outside when you return at 5:15 pm and you cannot see to unlock the door.

Put your seatbelt back on after getting out to check the mail at the end of the driveway. The truck does not like it when you are not buckled and will flash that annoying light the whole time you drive, not to mention that annoying buzzer. And no, there is nothing wrong with it other than the crazy person behind the wheel.

The next time you go grocery shopping do not pat yourself on the back about all your savings and then forget to go and deposit your paycheck. Your savings go out the window when you carelessly do things like this. (By the way just because you got away with it this time does not mean you will every time. Next time go to the bank first just to be on the safe side.

Check the toilet seat BEFORE sitting down. Your darling children have STILL not quite mastered bathroom etiquette and there may be something on there you don’t care to sit in.

Do not expect your dear children, ages 6 and 7 1/2, to properly put away their clothes in their drawers without supervision. The littlest one especially gets distracted easily by all the toys in the room and may just shove the clothes into the drawer any way she sees fit resulting in very wrinkled clothes later.

Do not be surprised to see your dear daughter return to her bedroom when you tell her that she does not match and put the perfectly clean clothes she had on into the dirty clothes hamper. You are the one who has drilled it into her head at least 100 times or more that when she takes her clothes off they go in the hamper.

Please note, dear self, that while these items are small and few, if you choose to heed your own warnings you may save yourself a little frustration in the long run.

Ha Ha!!! My car beeps at me too when I don't wear a seat belt. My brother is a big guy and he was sitting in the passanger seat this past Sunday and didn't wear his seatbelt. My car beeped the whole way and back from the store.

I totally hear you on the clean clothes in the hamper thing. I have to watch Gary put it away or else it will get in the hamper too! :)

Have an awesome day!

Oh, those are good! I can identify with quite of few, especially the ones regarding the kids.

OH dear... I think I might need to store these in my brain for future reference... or else I might go crazy!
