Post it note Tuesday - what's on your mind

It's Tuesday. Time once again for Post It Note Tuesday. Are you playing along? You should be.

Seriously. Does anyone else have a Postal carrier that doesn't deliver the mail if 1) there is a car she deems too close to the mailbox 2) has a garbage can fall near the mail box 3) has flowers she deems too long near the mailbox.

Then she has the audacity to ask for a tip at Christmas. I have a few tips I can give her....

This book "19 minutes" is my October book of the month. It is about a school shooting and it is an emotional train wreck. As a mother of pre-teen kids, this book is scarier than any fiction you can read.

If your son was accused and on trial for what can only be described as Columbine how would you feel? Would you still see the little boy who loved the crust cut off his bread and couldn't decide if he wanted his hair to grow or for you to buzz it off again or would you see a monster capable of shooting 29 kids and killing 10 of them?

This book makes you mourn for the kids lost but at the same time hate them for what some of them did to the accused. This book makes you side with both the prosecution and the defense and makes you so happy that you are not seated on the jury.

If you like legal thrillers with a twist, you may like this book.

I found the book heart wrenching at times but yet I couldn't put it down. I HAD to know how it would end.

Like I emotional train wreck.

Okay mail lady is crazy. I can't believe she actually refuses to deliever your mail for any of those circumstances. Hello... that is your job! And a tip is just bizarre!!

That book sounds really interesting. I think I would find myself completely confused and possibly needing counseling services as well.

I AGREE about the postal worker and the 19 minutes I dont think I finished it since it was so heart wrenching but it is on my to do list. I love her books, they are so thought provoking and emotional!

These were great. I like Jodi Picoult too, well I've only read "My Sister's Keeper" but it was GREAT! And amen to the USPS! Our carriers suck!

My sex drive is hiding too!

That sounds like an interesting book. A tragedy on so many levels.

You crack me up. I love visiting your blog because it always makes me smile... even in your trauma / drama, my evil side finds humor in your attitude. Is that a bad thing? I sure have missed you! Can't wait to catch up on all your posts I've missed.

Oh ... 19 Minutes was freaky. Want to get even more upset? Read "We Need To Talk About Kevin" by Lionel Shriver. Along the same lines ... really really good book.

And your postal carrier is an ass.

And my sex drive seems to have gotten lost as well.

19 minutes is a rough book! She is so good with the plot twist isn't she?
Also, I too hate my mail carrier. When the kids were all in school, I really wanted to take over her job. Seriously. There is actually a mail man that walks- yes walks, near the kids school. Imagine if she had to do that!
