Dear So and So

Dear Mother Nature,
Did you really have to make it rain so hard and make the wind blow so much that 3 transformers blew and shut down the electricity in my entire neighborhood?  Thanks so much.  I really loved the inch of water that poured into my basement because the sump pump couldn't work.  

Just made my day,


Dear Christmas,
Can you please not show up for an extra 2 weeks?   I am so not ready for you on the 25th!  

A little bit frazzled,


Dear car insurance company,
You have a really sick sense of humor.  A payment due on December 27?  Seriously?  



Dear ex-husband (and I used the term "dear" loosely),
Thanks for the free hotel room on Sunday night when I took our daughter back to school.   It was great that I didn't have to make that 520 miles trip all in one day.

The one you let get away


Dear Youngest Offspring,
It was very nice spending quality time with you on the drive back to your school.  I did enjoy it.  However, what it cost me to drive you to school was about the same as the plane ticket Daddy Dearest bought you to fly home last Wednesday.  And Daddy Dearest makes about 4X more than I do (not to mention what the trophy wife, Maleficent makes).  He can well afford the round trip ticket!!!  Keep that in mind from now on, please!!!

Love you much!


Dear Love Of My Life,
When I can't sleep and I go into the living room to put the TV on, I really don't want company!  I'm trying to go to sleep!  The sound of the TV will knock me out inside of 10 minutes.  Having you come in, use up all the sofa space to watch TV with me was not part of the plan.  Next time it happens, I'm going to pretend to be asleep.  

Love you dearly, but need my sleep,

Dear Friends,
If you like Dear So and So, and want to give it a try, just pop over to Kat's Place on the other side of the pond, hook up with her Linky and add your own!  It's a great way to blow off steam, and you can read lots of other letters!

good stuff

Dear Joanie,
Don't use that tone of voice with Mother Nature, you don't want to see me get hurricane tornado mad. Get yourself a generator if it bothers you. Maybe Mr. Christmas could help you.

May my wind be at your back,
Big Momma Nature

Oh yes, when speaking to Mother Nature be sure to talk softly, she carries a big stick and lately she's not been affraid to use it.

Dear Joanie,
Having your funny sense of humor definitely makes my holiday stressful time much better.

In gratitude,
Your blogger friend Joan
