My mother recently came across a note I left at my parent's home when I was in college and had stopped in there during the day - apparently to do laundry. She asked that I share this with Hipee (my sister the high powered executive) but I thought I would share it with all of you at the same time:
(Last Name)'s:I have just a small list of things that could use some improvement around here:1. Please teach the small white attack dog to not intimidate members of your immediate family. (Have you ever tried to carry a basket of dirty clothes and outrun a dog?)2. I think it would be appropriate to clean the breakfast things off the table. (When you're chasing a small white attack dog through the house it is a gruesome sight to run into.)3. Towels in a bathroom would be a wise touch. (Have you ever taken a shower and had to run through the house naked - excluding Mom Last Name - trying to find a towel?)4. Toilet paper would also cut down on some of the unexpected and unwanted surprises around here. (This goes without explanation - especially when trying to wash clothes.)5. For a final note, I don't think the bathroom sink is the place to leave 30 pairs of underwear soaking. (It is a good thing to have clean underwear but I think it would be more appropriate to soak that many pairs in a washer or at least a large tub. It is quite the eye sore for a guest to spy.)Well I hope now that you can remedy these situations before I visit again.Lori
- The small white attack dog was a sweet, friendly little dog that maybe weighed 10 lbs soaking wet.
- The disclaimer that exempted our Mom from the running naked through the house question was because Mom had a habit of taking a bath and then yelling "Nobody Look!" as she ran the 4 steps from the bathroom to the bedroom. True. We all sort of got used to it. And yes, she always had a towel wrapped around her.
- Mom had apparently wanted to make it clear that there were only 3 pairs of underwear soaking in the sink. She has actually written above my "30 pairs" that there were "really only 3".
