Dear Weight Watchers: I am expecting amazing results from you! So far I am down 3lbs since Monday, don't let me down. And thank you for those delicious spinach and mushroom Lean Cuisine pizzas!! I'm in Heaven.
Dear Ellie: I love you, I really do. But I don't want to hear you before 8 a.m. You were doing so good; sleeping until 8:00-8:30 for months. What the crap is up with these 6:45 wake up calls. And less than 1 hour naps during the day? I am going to die. Momma needs her sleep. I know you have been much crankier lately because of your sleep and there lack there is..explaining the meltdown of 2012 this week. Momma is cranky too, and nobody wins when momma is cranky. So thank you for sleeping in until 10:00 today. I feel less likely to lose my mind. Keep it up!
|That line is a shadow, not a bruise-I swear!!|
Dear Husband: I am once again amazed at how...well...amazing you are. Letting me sleep in every Monday and Wednesday morning. You are a life saver. I'm pretty sure it's because you know how cranky I can get. Exhibit A: Last Saturday morning. (Sorry about that). And thank you for being there for me whenever I need you. I am so grateful for you and your loving arms.
Dear vacation: I am so excited for you! You are getting so close, but yet not close enough to start packing. So I will have to satisfy myself with making lists. Lots of lists. Written lists, mental lists, lists on the big whiteboard, post-it notes on everything..etc.
Dear Ellie: (again) even though this has been a week full of crankiness-on both sides-I do have to tell you how much you've been cracking me up lately. I could just sit and watch you play for hours. You mimic everything. Dinner is filled with a chorus of "Ellie-can you do this." "Ellie can you do this." "Ellie can you say ___." And you never fail to entertain. I love you sweet girl-crankiness and all!
I am still struggling with our loss. I know that all things work together for good, but I'm having a hard time seeing the good right now. But I will continue to trust you and thank you for your unfailing love.
