Just in case there was any confusion

Mom gave me a Dymo label maker for my birthday this year and let me tell you, for someone with OCD, this gift is freakin' AWESOME. I have to resist the urge to sleep with my label maker because I love it that much.

Last week, in one of my few moments of energy, I decided to label the medicine cabinet. I mean, since I was practically living in it, getting many, many medicines from it every 4-6 hours, I figured it needed to be organized.

On the front of the second shelf I put a label that says "Alcohol/peroxide" and one in all caps that says "KADY'S RESCUE INHALER," which could also read "THE INHALER THAT CAN KILL KRISTIN." I labeled a spot for the bandaids and gauze/tape.

On the bottom shelf I have a lazy-susan so that anything you might need can be easily accessed by simply turning the magical lazy-susan of medicinal goodness. There's a label that says "Pain relievers" and one that says "Cough." There's also one that says "Allergies" and even one that says "Diarrhea."

But Abby decided that my labelling wasn't clear enough and took things a step further:

I laughed so hard I nearly needed one.

If Abby ever gets too sarcastic for your taste, she has a home in Virginia. I think I need her help labeling some of our stuff. I have a Rubbermaid bin labeled "Man's shit" that I put the husband's miscellaneous tools and tape in. I swear there's a dozen types of tape in there!

She has your way with words. Sorry to hear you've been sick kiddo. I'm FINALLY over whatever it was that ailed me for weeks. Now that I'm getting back on an airplane this week, I'm downing the Airborne and am carrying lots of three ounce bottles of that anti-germ stuff.
