Rules For Nana

Dear Stan,

I left this note on the refrigerator because you always eat. Get it? Haha. I understand that youre mom stroked and now she will live here even if she HATES!!! me. You think that is not true but it is. It is sad losing a parent as you KNOW I know. So you can see I am not a bitch and untolerant. But I live here too(!!!) and there must be rules for Nana. Or else… (you already know!!!) I know its too hard for you to make rules so I did it for you. When you get back from the hospital please give them to her and read them into her good ear TWICE!!!

Love, Sharon

  1. Dear Sharon:

    I left this note glued to the open toilet seat because you seem to notice it every time:

    1. my mother only smokes when you are around because you make her nervous. ran over her wheelchair last thanks giving so now she can only silently crawl.
    3. She can no longer digest solids.
    4. the tracheotomy prevents her from singing.
    5. the kids won’t come close to her since you told them mother is a leper.
    6. can’t promise eanything
    7. THANKS!!!



  2. loved it! my heart goes out to Sharon because of her new life as a under appreciated caregiver of a woman who “hates ” her. No fun!
