At the first of the year I try to shake things up a bit around here. Today’s post is an attempt to do exactly that. When a couple of my blogging friends started talking about the Little Letters monthly linkup, I knew I wanted to join them. It instantly reminded me of Jimmy Fallon’s Thank You Notes, which has always been a favorite of mine. Plus, it is the perfect way to clean out the corners of my mind, do some confessions, and share what is really going on inside of my head.
Come to think of it, I’m not so sure this is a good idea after all…
Dear Friday the 13th,
Are people even afraid of you anymore. I looked at the calendar, noticed you, and thought a big, “meh!” It also occurred to me that my kids aren’t even aware of your existence. I think I’d like to keep it that way.
Dear Coffee Pot,
When I bought you 6 years ago I never imagined you living this long. All of my other coffee pot relationships had never made it past two years before we broke up… or they died. I must admit as fond as I am of you (and even more appreciative of your service) if you’re tired and want to cross over to the other side, I’m okay with that. You’ve lived a good life.
Dear Target Return Desk,
I find it funny that after I returned a VERY un-level cake stand to the store, you put it back on the shelf. Was it really just me that noticed this. Should I have brought a level and tape-measurer with me to demonstrate just how bad it was? Or do you simply think the next persons OCD won’t compare to mine? I’d expect this kind of behavior from Walmart, but I thought you were better than that.
Dear Wii Fit,
Thank you for making my kids think that running in place for 10 minutes is the best game ever. This is really helping a mom out during the winter months when we don’t get outside much. I’m not sure how you do it, but job well done.
Dear Ice Storm,
I knew you were coming today and I can be fine with that. However, if you could turn yourself into snow, that would be great. I would also like to add that if you knock my power out for a week, like you did 8 years ago, I may hurt someone. So let’s just play nice m’kay?
I really wish you had dumbbells in 2.5 lb increments. I think I am ready to use something heavier however, a 5lb increase is a lot. Especially when lifting it above my head. All of me wants to give it a try but I fear the results could be embarrassing at the least.
I’m sorry I have neglected you for the past few months. It’s nothing personal, I just was really distracted. I promise that I haven’t stopped loving you. I hope we can spend more time together in 2017.
Dear This Is Us,
Thank you for not killing Toby. It was a very long month while we waited to find out his fate and I couldn’t be more relieved that he is still alive. I’m not sure I could have handled finding out the dark fate of another character on an emotional level.
P.S. I love you
Dear Marissa and Emily,
Please stop asking every single night before bed if we have school in the morning. I know, you know the days of the week and what days we have school. This isn’t rocket science. Christmas break is long, long gone. I hate it too, but I am trying to be strong for all of us.
Dear Hurts Donuts
I’m so glad you opened a short walk away from my house #sarcasm. As if donuts weren’t already tempting enough. I now lie awake in bed at night knowing that you are open thanks to your 24 hour a day service. We have to move now. I can’t live with that hanging over my head. I blame you.
Linking up with Taz and Belly for Little Letters.
Have a great weekend friends!
We’ll see you back here on Monday.
