Friday's Letters

I was first introduced to the concept of Friday's Letters by Alyssa of The Bee's Knees a couple of weeks ago. The whole thing started with Ashely over at Adventures of Newlyweds (you can read more about how it all began here). I thought it was a great way to do a weekly wrap-up and decided that I would join in on the fun too. So, here it goes....

Dear Officer, thank you for pulling me over and making me aware that my headlight was out. I'm grateful that you didn't give me a ticket. Especially considering you pulled me over right in front of a Walmart where a replacement bulb could easily be purchased. Dear husband, thank you for replacing said light bulb. Dear Red Tails movie, the original Tuskegee Airmen was so much better! Dear weathermen (and women), once again, you have proved that you don't have a clue as to what you're talking about. First, the weather system wasn't suppose to become anything, then it turns into a tropical storm. Then, it was suppose to head toward Texas and become a category 1 hurricane. Did that happen? Nope. Instead we've had a tropical storm parked right off of our coast for the majority of the week. Dear TS Debby, thanks for the rain. We really did need it. I don't know if we necessarily needed that much though. Dear apartment complex, you really should put a system in place to automatically turn off the sprinklers when we have rain. Dear family, yes, we know you're excited about the possibility of grand kids/nieces/nephews/cousins. However, as we've said many, many, MANY times, we'd like to pay off a huge chunk of our debt before starting a family. Besides, we've not even been married for a year; let us enjoy being newlyweds for a little while. Dear laundry, do you ever end?? Dear turnpike, I don't think the 75 cents toll increase was really necessary. Dear mom, thanks for going out to lunch with me and trying out some place new to eat. Dear Hungry Howies, what ever happened to customer service? I'll go with Papa Johns next time I need dinner and I'm in Orlando. Dear mother-in-law, thank you for the movie tickets! People Like Us turned out to be a really good movie! Dear husband, I love you and I'm proud of you; the right job will come around eventually. Dear cellphone, I didn't mean to do it... it was only a tiny bit of water... please turn on again... I can't afford a new one.... Dear self, we've made it through 2 nights at the gym with this new couch-to-5k training, tonight is night 3. You can do it!

  1. I feel the exact same way about apartment complex sprinklers when its raining - what a waste! I especially liked your letter to your family! What crazy pressure that must be.

    1. Hi Kim! The pressure from our family usually isn't too bad. For whatever reason though, this just seemed to be the week everyone felt like asking about our future plans. :) Thanks for commenting!
