Dear Zorro, Dear Amethyst.

On several nights I third your letters. Dear Snuffles, please sleep. At least last night you gave me three and a half hours of sleep. I hope you give me more tonight as Daddy has to go to work tomorrow again.
Amethyst: Just get a set of headphones, plug in your favourite calming song (for me its Pachabels Canon in D. I know, how lame) and listen to that, try to drown out the baby. When it cries, it cries, and if you can't make it stop, then at least you can try to relax for a few minutes.
Zorro: Don't know how old yours is, but soon you will see a nice toothless, gummy grin aimed at you.

Dear Zorro,
What Rob D. said. Plus, keep the camera at the ready for that moment. Your time will come, I promise.
Love,
Amethyst

Dear Rob D,
It's good ol' country music blaring that drowns him out. Nothin like a Rascal Flatts song to take my mind away for 2 minutes. Gah, I feel guilty about doing it tho at times. But I figure my sanity is probably the best for him.

You've probably already connected the dots here, but it occurs to me that, even if S keeps his word and doesn't badmouth you to the kids, his parents will. You may want to find some way of assuring minimal contact between the kids and the grandparents.

Dear leg and Coumadin,
Thanks.
Becuase of you, I just lost my job.
Leg, because you hurt so often so bad that sitting hurt.
And Coumadin, because you made me so worn out and tired that I got sick so often and had me at a low level of nausea that ratcheted up to a high point this week.
Hope you liked seeing me cry.

Dear Sgt. Max Greevey,

Is your DHB six feet tall and 125 pounds? My Daddy is. His hips are like knives. I much prefer sleeping on the squishy parts of my Mommy.

Don't worry, though. When my Daddy is sitting on the couch, I like to climb onto his lap and put all my weight right on the ticklish part of his pelvis. He thinks I don't do it on purpose, but I do.

Thank you for the compliment. I am going to assume you are also cute and well-groomed.

Maow back atcha.

Dear Dad,

I was very encouraged to hear this morning that you were totally pissed off about the whole situation. Keep the fighting spirit up!

See you at Christmas! Praying hard in the meantime.

Dear Aimee Evilpixie,

I feel your pain. My Nestle sleeps on my face. Sometimes I wish he'd just sleep on my face so he'd stop licking my nose. The hand-and-finger licking I can sleep through. The face licking, I can't.
If we shut him out... our door doesn't close flush, and he'll bang on it. It's easier to sleep with the possibility of waking up with fur in your mouth than the constant "meeeow!" bang bang bang.

Dear body,
Stop it. I'm trying to keep you healthy, and I'm drinking lots of water. It's for you! Stop making me jump up and run to the bathroom every 10 minutes! It's getting embarassing.

Dear self,
Wait until you talk to the teacher before you decide on whether or not to put Dragonling back on meds. Maybe it's just a slow start. You honestly don't know when the comments were written, it could have been 4 weeks ago for all you know, and Dragonling may have improved since then. You know you really don't want to go through all this again.

Me

Dear Dragonling,
I know you are capable of doing the work. You do it here at home. I dont understand why you are so easily disracted at school. Remember last year and all the problems you had? You started to improve at the end of the year. Maybe we never should have taken you off the medication, but it is such a PITA to get you to take it.

How do I get you to focus?! [Frown]

Dear Undergraduate from another lab,

You were the one who suggested Wednesday. I made the preparations for it to be Wednesday. Now you suddenly remember that you have another appointment. This happens a lot. "I forgot I have class" or "I forgot I have to meet with a study group." I will be having a chat with your boss when she gets back.

If you expect me to make time for you, you need to honor your commitments.

Dear B,

Thanks for calling me at home to tell me you were wrong and that I was right. I already knew I was right. I've been doing this a while. Now, go back and reconvene the meeting full of people where you insisted that you were right, I was wrong, and that you've "never heard that in any of my training". Clearly you weren't listening. I was. And you don't get to decide to make me civilly and criminally liable for your inability to pay attention in your trainings.

*sigh*

I fear this will become a regular event, since now we have to work together. I will be living my life on the "Letters You Wish You Could Send" page.

No love,

Roadie, darling, dear -

Figure out how to deal with this chick. She's loud, obnoxious, condescending, rude, and unbearable. However, you must figure out how to respond without acting like her. Tactic A, ignoring her, is not only not in your nature but will seem as if you condone and/or agree whatever tripe is spewing from her mouth. Tactic B, getting into an argument, will validate her need to cause a scene and will only drag you down to her level. Figure out a Tactic C, girly, by January.

Love,

Roadie

Dear Neighbors,

I appreciate the lack of "American Girl" but I have to say that "Rosemary's Grandaughter yadda yadda" song isn't any better.

Now, I like country to the extent that a TN girl has to, but why only the schmaltzy girl power ones? They really kind of suck. The pseudo-praise music isn't really much better. Just stop. Please. I'm about to start slipping copies of my massive Green Day collection under your door.

The same thing happens to me when it comes to working on my novel. Of which I've done precisely none in the past month...I must be the only-ever writer who became less inspired after moving to Paris. Grrrrrr! The greatest ideas do come to me when I'm sitting in financial accounting lectures, but then I'm too tired or busy or both to ever sit down and write them out.

Dear self-

This happens every trimester of school, and at the IEP renewal. Don't get depressed, and don't obsess over what an "average" child would be doing at this age. The oldest has almost entirely straight A's and just was promoted to full private in her JROTC unit; the youngest boychild is excelling academically just needs work on those ADHD issues (taking time for details, etc). Sometimes having two gifted children makes going to middle Spamlet's conferences that much harder. Remember to look at -her- accomplishments, not compare her to other children. Her handwriting is becoming nicer every day, she is doing well on her spelling tests and is reading at a basic level, and does addition/ subtraction on the calculator (and sometimes without!). Her speech will never be perfect, but she is getting across some fairly complex ideas much more clearly. These are things to be happy and proud of!

Retreating into the depression and occasional self-pity, and the inevitable self-blame that starts coming around towards the holidays accomplishes nothing. The dark days of winter always bring back the memories of being snowbound at the hospital with the news of her disability and the trips to the NICU but it's up to you to drag your ass out of it!

Dear Spamamander,

From everything you have posted since you have been here, you are a very good mom! Keep up the good work! That you are worried about how to deal with your middle child as an individual is really great.

Big hugs,
