Welp, Christmas is officially over, so it's time to start getting back to my regular scheduled programming. Before I start thinking about plans for the new year, I'm going to write my last Friday's letters for 2012.
Dear Santa... Thank you for such a wonderful Christmas. This was one that will definitely go down in the history books as being one of the best we've ever had. The kids were so happy with their gifts, I was so happy they were so happy, and everyone got along and had a great time. I couldn't have asked for any more than I got, because it was absolutely perfect.
Dear Time... PLEASE slow down a little. I've been off work for over a week, but it feels like I've only had a couple of days off work. It's been go, go, go since the last day of school, and I can't believe I only have 5 more days left of my break. I haven't even started doing any work to prepare for going back to school...and that's going to take me a couple of days. I'd really appreciate it if you could just take it easy for a few days, and let me enjoy some of this time off.
Dear Weatherman... You told us all that there was going to be a pretty significant snow storm on Christmas. I asked for you NOT to make that happen, because I did NOT want to have to travel in snow. Somehow, I got my wish and not a single snow flake fell from the sky. As I sat and watched the radar tell everyone that 2-4" of snow should be falling, we somehow managed to avoid it all. You have no idea how thankful I am for that - but now I'd really like you to deliver some hefty snow on New Year's Day. I don't have to travel - and giving me just enough snow to give me a few more days of Christmas break would just be swell.
Dear Tooth... Please stop hurting! That is all.
Dear Housecleaning Fairy... I would really love it if you could make a little trip to my house. No matter how much I try and put stuff away and get my house back to normal, it just doesn't want to cooperate. My vacuum cleaner is just about on it's last legs and that's no good when there's so many carpets that need a good vacuuming. I could really use your help right about now... if you have the time.
Dear New Year's Resolutions... I know I've said this time and time again, but I really want to stick with you this year. I've got a nice list going that I plan to reveal to the world pretty soon - but I need some support with sticking to them. 2012 was the year a lot of my dreams came true...but 2013 needs to be the year I finally fulfill some of the other lifelong ambitions I've had for years, now. It would be really great if this time next year I was checking off everything on that list of mine and celebrating all that I've accomplished. We can do that, right? Let's hope so.
Dear Everyone that Reads My Blog... I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support you've shown me through this year. I know I've changed routine, changed my content, and changed my whole blogging persona - but I'm still finding myself, and this blogging journey has really helped me do that. I have lots of wonderful things planned for my blog in 2013...and changing the name is NOT one of them. I finally feel comfortable with the way I've got my blog laid out, and just need to move forward with my life and plans. Not giving too much away about my resolutions, I will say that you are involved with that list. I want to go back to being interactive with my blog followers, and I know that a lot of that has to do with interacting with the blogs that I read. It's not fair to ask people to read and comment here when I rarely make any comments on your blogs. That will be changing soon. Until then, I hope you have a wonderful new year...and will talk to you all again, soon!
