Friday's Letters

I woke up this morning wondering why my alarm was going off on a Saturday. Imagine my surprise when I realized that it was Friday and I was supposed to be at work in 5 minutes.
Thank God people don't care when I come into work, otherwise I probably would have been fired a thousand times by now. Oops.
Here we go...
Dear Big A, thanks for being such a trooper and going to get a tree with me the other night. You are beginning to recognize battles that you will not win and that's a good thing for our marriage. Hehe. And when I said he (yes he, the tree has a name and everything) needed to come in last night, you brought him right in. You're too good to me.
Dear December, holy shit. You're here. And Christmas is right around the corner. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed by how quick things are going, but I'm going to ride with it. Quick times means Baby Boy will be here, so I'm down. Just... go easy on me.
Dear Snow, I know most people are going to hate me for saying this (except N who likes having oil in her tank for the Winter as well) but I'm ready. This whole 50-60 degree thing is nice, but I'm stuck in the office all day and can't enjoy it, so you might as well go away. We need snow. Some nice lovely snow storms that are going to put some money in our account. Seeing as how our renovations have completely depleted our savings account. (Oh what fun it is to have an empty bank accooooount. < Please make sure you sing that to the tune of Jingle Bells)
Dear Work, you are the bee's knees and I appreciate you working out a deal with me for when Baby Boy is born. I promise I will work super hard and make it worth your while. I'm so excited that I'll be able to be home with him two days a week. NOW if I can only figure out the last two days of childcare, that would be perfect.
Dear N, thanks for getting everyone together for my birthday dinner. I know you think it isn't a big deal, but not having to plan things or call for a reservation is pretty exciting to me. I just want to show up and stuff my face. You're the best.
Dear Stretchmarks, I found where you've been hiding. You're so clever. I'm going to need to slather on some serious stuff and hope that they go away. The good news is that they are on the insides of my thighs so the chance of the general population seeing them isn't big since I've decided against my lucrative porn career after I get my pre-baby body back. (I kid...well... not about NOT going into porn. I was never going into it. I was just saying that there's only one person who will probably see them and I blame him for getting them, so he can deal. Haha)
Dear Birthday, I'm super excited about you. As always. I find it a bit unfair that you are on a Friday and I can't drink, but I'll make up for that next year. I'm more than ready to enter the wild world of 28. That number feels right, so I have no issues about getting older this year. However, I have to take my glucose test, so... be nice!
Dear Christmas Tree, Big A thinks that it was just a nice little idea to decorate you tonight, but we are going to whether he likes it or not. There's not point in having a Christmas Tree and not have it decorated. You are going to look so FABULOUS!
Alright, I suppose I should do some actual work today since I haven't been at my desk all week and I'm WAY behind.
Have a fabulous weekend everyone!


  1. Nice for working remotely for 2 days a week! That's the BEST. Also...our tree is named Treebie.

  2. That's awesome you can be home two days a week. I would LOVE that!

  3. hah I can't believe you woke up so late! Don't you hate when you wake up and your all confused as to what day it is & what time it is even though you are staring right at the clock>! haha

    That is SO awesome that you are going to get to stay home two days a week with your son!!!!

    When's your birthday?! I hope not today. I will feel really dumb!
