Someone Take Away the Post-Its Before I Eat Them

Has it really been almost a month since my last post? Time just flies by. Not too much has happened; I made it through the first trimester (I sure hope labor isn't that bad), survived a family RV trip (I sure hope labor isn't that bad) and ate a lot. Seriously, it's like I think someone is going to take away all food if I don't eat it, so get out of my way people, I'm trying to save us all!

So no one should take away my food, but someone should take away my post-it notes.

At work we use an instant messenger system to talk to each other. We are supposed to set our status when we are away from our desk like "At Lunch" or "In a Meeting" so people know where we are. However, today my messenger wasn't working and when I went to lunch, I decided to stick a little note on my computer to say that I was away, if anyone came looking for me.

It started out fine enough, but then I realized my first note could be open to interpretation. So I wrote another to clarify. But then that note didn't seem to really give the full picture, so I wrote another. And it just snowballed like that until this:

I know it seems like a lot, but really, each note contained important information.

Excessive? Nah, just thorough.

  1. Oh Emmy, When I got to your first screen shot, I zoomed my screen up to 200 but still could not make out the post it messages. After trying to read this for several minutes, I thought I would just try to read the rest of the blog then come back to decipher it. You fooled me. I probably spent as much time trying to decipher as you did explaining your point on post it notes. Next time I will look over the blog before reading through. xoxoxo IU
