My husband’s attempt to publicly shame me while I was not logged into Facebook actually drew some handsome compliments, in a twist of fate. Also, who knew this was a thing? THIS is what drove me out of hiding and compelled me to break my Facebook fast.
Sweet. Only in New York!
I do the same thing. Fucking dry cleaners.
She has great handwriting…
All I could think while reading this “what perfect printing.”
Awesome note. I heart your wife. And, her architectural handwriting is superb.
I take those and put them in my wife’s bag.
Damn dry cleaner. Creating marital strife coast to coast.
OMG! My husband does the same thing! HAHAHA
I think I love your wife.
Argh… My husband does put them in my bag! I hate them!
That note is truly a work of art. Like most other artwork, it will serve no practical purpose.
I think Adobe should release the new “Blaustein” typeface on the market immediately. Oh, and don’t think we all didn’t notice the *ruled* post-it notes, not the silly free-form, unlined ones.
She’s giving me ideas!!
OMG!!!! My husband leaves those things all over the place! Drives me nuts!!!
Love that, stealing it.
Great handwriting. Is she a cartoonist?
Looks like interior decorator handwriting.
I am happy with no more than a tenuous connection to reality, such as quiet music playing in the background, something only touching my ears, no vision in my eyes, shallow breath in my lungs.
I crave that floaty feeling, hallucination, silence, and sensory deprivation, so that my imagination may fill the empty balloon.
I’m back! While you weren’t looking, David and I had another baby, and named her Bliss. We really did it. Bliss Blaustein was born at home October 5th. She was brought earthside in a lightning bolt, and our midwife missed the birth. So, we delivered her ourselves. Birth story to come.
I decided I spend too much energy on Facebook and resolve to write more for the blog in the coming year. Like, love, or other, please feel free to share your thoughts in comments. As a bridge from Facebook, I’ll share here what I shared over at my page the other day. I’ll deliver always original, always honest, sometimes-hopefully-possibly-entertaining content. Heart thump. Peace sign. Love to my loyal readers.

You might notice balloons are not on this list. They’re really bad for our ecosystem. Follow Facebook page “Balloons Blow” for conscious reporting on the subject. We also try to use single-use items sparingly.
