Friday Letters

Friday letters


Dear NF, The beginning of January you went to bed like a champ.  Lately not so much.  This week you went nuts from 730-8 like full hyper speed… then putting you to bed was like torture… for both of us.  On another topic, I love that you sing the amen song.  And since when did you start saying echo?  And I can’t believe you count now!  Even if  it’s 3, 4, 9 usually.  And you call 6 up up down 9 and turn your head like you’re trying to look at it upside down.  Oh, you still call W cereal… and I hope you do for forever.

Dear The Bachelor Juan Pablo, you’re the best bachelor ABC’s ever had, I really do think so.

Dear The Olympics, Where’s the hype?  Are we too caught up on the Super Bowl to even talk about you?

Dear Friday nights, I think I’ve always been weird on Friday nights.  The pressure you bring.  Everyone is like TGIF!  And you come and I am like yes!!!  Then Friday night comes… and I’m pretty much doing the same thing I did during the work week except I don’t shower the next morning and I stay up maybe 30 minutes later.  I get a feeling in my stomach I’m missing out and then it’s time to go to bed and I did nothing fun.

Dear Super Bowl, I hope I enjoy you?  No one’s team is in it… so I don’t really care about the outcome.  I did buy a square so that should make you a little more exciting?  And the half time show?

Dear Smellen, you said you’d call me back and you did NOT.  I’m jealous you and your boy friend do things like go to Kohls’s on Friday nights together.  You’re probably watching a movie together right now. #doisoundlonelybecauseiam

Dear Abs Class, I hope I am sore tomorrow.  I really really do.

Dear Grocery Store, I am going to see you tomorrow as early as possible (by 8:45 AM is the goal?).  I really hope it’s not a zoo because of the giant Syracuse Duke game and the Super Bowl.

Dear Syracuse Basketball, I’m not into you this year and I have reasons that have nothing to do with you.  I’m sure once March Madness is here I’ll care more.

Dear Laundry Machines, I HATE that you’re 25 cents more a machine.  Gathering $3 in quarters today was rough… rougher than $2.50 that’s for sure.

Dear Winter, I’m over you too!

Dear Tredmill, I wish I owned you.  I’d go on you right now and run a mile.

Dear Shark Tank, you made me so hungry tonight!  I wanted that cookie dough so bad!

Dear Garmin, thank you… you bring me right where I want to go.  Living without a smart phone isn’t so bad because I have you.

Dear Stomach, NO I will not feed you right now.  There’s no need it’s too late and almost time for bed so stop.

Dear Mind, Have I lost you?  Maybe?

Dear Blog Readers, who are you?  Comment so I know.  Who really reads this thing?

Dear NF, This morning when I realized I forgot your bag once we got to the car – and then had to go back up 3 flights of stairs to the apartment, then back down.. then I realized I forgot to lock the door, and we went back up, and then back down… it was pretty funny that you chanted, “UP-UP DOWNNN, UP-UP DOWNNN, UP-UP DOWNNN” … really if someone carried me up and down stairs that many times I’d probably come up with something to shout too.  (I carry him because when he walks up and down the stairs takes like 10x longer and we’re always late).

Dear Candy Crush, seriously level 211?  I can’t quit you.

Dear The Neighbors, I know Fridays are the days ABC puts shows on to die.. please don’t die…  I LOVE the Neighbors, seriously such a good show.  And I don’t mind watching you on Fridays.

Dear The Taste, I didn’t think I’d watch you… but I started… and you’re not so bad… you’re actually quite entertaining.

Dear the tumbling class NF is going to tomorrow, I CAN’T WAIT!  I know NF’s going to love it!

Dear Dentist, I haven’t gone to you in almost 3 years.  Yeah yeah I was all anti paying for dental insurance and thought I could do without… well ok I felt amazing after that cleaning (it did hurt a lot but that’s what I deserved).  I think I was mostly terrified I’d have like 5 cavities and it’d cost me a fortune… but GUESS WHATTT!?!  No cavity club for this gal!

Dear Smellen, So excited you’re going to tumbling tomorrow with me.  Aunt Elbie!!! (That’s what NF calls my sister now).

Dear Shark Tank, I can’t believe that guy just called Lori Barbra.  If I was Lori I’d say “I’M OUT!!!” immediately.  (yeah I’m watching Shark Tank as I’m writing this).

Dear the cost of stamps, WHYYY Do you go up like ALL THE TIME!? (I know inflation is a reason)  49 cents for a stamp?  emails and texts are free… 49 cents costs way more than the cards I send… a book of stamps used to cost me $9.20 now it’ll be $9.80…. maybe I should just buy a ton of forever stamps……. orrr I could just take them from my parent’s house as needed (sorry mom and dad).  If I was to get married (someday HA!) and I’d sent bridal shower invites, save the dates, invitations, and thank you cards… OMG that’d cost so much!

Dear Exergen Temporal Scanner Infrared Thermometer, I finally gave in and bought you.  I really hope you’re as amazing as people say.  I am excited to take everyone’s temperatures.

Dear new tall gray Uggs, Thank you for keeping my feet very warm during this freezing weather.
