Dear wife.

I love you from the deepest bottom of my heart and if I could, I would marry you over and over again. I might not say it often enough, heck, I DO not say it often enough but I love you and fall in love with you over and over again.
Raising two kids (three, if you include me) is a hard work, but I admire you for what you do, and how you cope with it. Sometimes you are irritated but you are entitled to it, and I know that if I were you I might do the same. I am just glad we had no real issues since I got a job.
I know our finances aren't the best at the moment but remember, there are a lot of families who are even worse off.
But again. I love you, and thank you for being my wife, my first girlfriend and my friend. You make my life complete and fill the part of my heart that needed to be filled. I am almost afraid of what might come, because usually bad things try to even out good things, and while my life before you came into it had sometimes sucked, the last almost six years have already outdone any bad times I had before.
Often I have to shake my head when I think about it: I am married, happily married and I have two kids! Please, if this is a dream... let me dream on, don't wake me up.

Your husband who loves you more and more.

***************
Dear Husband,

You know what- I got a damn job. I looked for months, I applied everywhere that had an ad out. I finally got a freakin' job. And after two days of work, I hurt. I bloody well hurt. My feet are killing me. My legs are sore from my knees down to my toes and my lower back aches.

Now its time for you to cut me some slack. Stop hassling me. Stop picking on me. Stop teasing me. My job isn't easy. I have to learn how to cook foods I've never had to cook before and I have to learn how to do them on a large scale. I do not work at "a honkytonk" (do you even know what that is?), I do not work at a "dive". I work at a bar and grill. And the grill part is new to me. I haven't even bartended yet because I want to learn how to work the kitchen first.

I got a job, now get off my back. And don't you dare complain about having to do more with the kids. What did you expect from me? To split into two people and still be able to do all that I do at home as well as work? Sort of makes your whole rant to your family of "she's lazy, she doesn't do sh*t around the house" seem stupid, doesn't it? [sarcasm]Well, forgive me for hurting my knee last Spring and having to use crutches till May[/sarcasm].

Now, leave me alone, I'm going to put my feet up.

~Your wife

Dear self-

Yes, the preventative maintenance on the car cost more than you expected. However, seeing as you don't know $%&* about cars, and would be in trouble if it broke down, it's probably worth it just to not worry about it. You can afford it, so stop fretting.

Dear Self,

You acted like an idiot last night. You didn't want to walk the mile or so to the bar that people wanted to go to, so The Fiance had to drive you. Then, when we couldn't find parking for that bar, we had to drive to a bar even farther away. After that, you didn't even try and participate in the conversation. Granted, being the fourth person in a loud bar made it almost impossible to hear, but you didn't even try. You just watched the football game, apparently looking depressed, because The Fiance asked you a few times if you were okay. At least you did reassure him at the end of the night that you had fun! And so what if you're tired today...you've been tired all week! Don't you dare spoil Christmas in Christ Chapel, for M or yourself!

Sincerely,
the part of you that is awake today

Dear Fiance,
I'm sorry that suddenly I'm obsessed with buying a house or a townhome. When you told me Z was buying a house, it made me realize how much I want to do that too. I promise, if we can't afford it, or it turns out to not make sense for us, I won't try and push it. I just really, really don't like paying rent!
Love,
Me

Dear Weather,
Please don't snow until tomorrow! I have to drive down to St. Peter, and back; more than 3 hours total! Snow would just make it even worse...I'll be tired enough when I get back without dealing with nasty weather.
Sincerely,
the sleep deprived individual who has to drive around half the state tonight

Dear DS-2:

You rock son!

Congratulations on getting that job offer in St. Louis. I checked out the web sites of all of the divisions of this company and you, my son, are on the cutting edge of technology. I am so very proud of you.

I am sorry that your interviews with them took so long and you got stuck in that snow and ice storm. I did not mind being your virtual navigator and updating you on the conditions at the airport, your flight status (cancelled) and surfing for alternate means for you to get to Florida.

I am glad that you were finally able to get your flight this morning and hope you are enjoying a cool one in the warm backyard of your mother's winter home.

I'll see you next week when your travels are over for a short spell.

PS: Do I have to try and sell the Bob Seger tickets now that you will probably be working in St. Louis by then?

All my love . . .

Naming your child is not a contest to come up with the most unbelievable new spelling for a normal name.

"Myrcediz"?!?

Dear Ryda,

I generaly feel the same way about overly-distinctive spelling.

But in this case, I wonder if the parents are attempting to enforce the French pronuniciation of the name, or something close to it, over the more common pronunciation associated with the car.

Dear kmcm,

"Mercedes" was a woman's name long before it was a car. IIRC, the founder of the company named it after his daughter.

Actually, the Mercedes car is named after a person.

. . .Daimler agreed to call the cars Mercedes after Jellinek's daughter. . .
Then there's Mercedes McCambridge and Mercedes Ruehl. There are more, but I can't remember them right now.

I think Mercedes is a lovely name, although the weird spelling doesn't grab me.

I wuz spanked while looking for cites and answering the telephone.

Dear T-Girl,
I thought about you when the weather hit, then I saw your post in the other thread. We had thunder-sleet Wednesday night into Thursday morning, and then it snowed most of the day yesterday. I think we only got about 3 inches. Of snow. The sun is shining brightly and there's a melt going on. I guess we'll wait until tomorrow to go to the Italian restaurant, but I'm surely craving Sausage Pizzaola, and I want it today! My husband is wavering between Chicken Cacciatore and Chicken Genovese. But, as usual, I digress. We had no power outage and are staying toasty warm.

'Bye for now.

You freakin jerk. At no time this week did the Rooster give any indication that he planned to cover for you this weekend so you could take the time off. So how DARE you tell everyone that he's got the truck and to make any towing arrangements with him? We had to find out from OTHER NFBSKING PEOPLE that he was working.

I hope you enjoy this weekend off because buddy, he's not going to do it anymore. Your family is not more important than ours. You choose this life, he can walk away at any time. And damnit, he is. Especially after you tried to use me to convince him to keep doing it.

P.S. You're being rather mysterious about where you're taking me for our 6 month anniversary, which is making me wonder. I'm really looking forward to it.

Dear NY:

I told on you today. Rather than standing up and screaming "shut up shut up shut up" at the top of my lungs, I restrained myself, and then tattled. Know what I found out? I am just about the last person to say something. Literally 25 other people have complained about you. Do you understand what that says about your lack of ability to control your mouth? You are an adult woman in a professional situation; it is about time you learn some restraint.

And yes, I feel much better about myself, thank you very much.

Sincerely,
A

P.S. Shut up.

If a supervisor/manager never told him he is working this weekend, then he's not working this weekend - no matter what someone may be telling everyone else. If he isn't told by a supervisor/manager, then the other guy's weekend off was never approved and no one else should cover for him.

Good to hear. Since it sounds like a recurring problem, it is time for Rooster to take up his continuous unapproved weekend covering for this guy. He needs someone above him know that he will no longer cover for other employees unless the supervisor/manager asks him to.

Of course, if this guy is the supervisor/manager, then Rooster needs to start saying NO when he hears of his weekend being changed. Or start charging large fees to the guy to "repay" what Rooster will be missing (or losing money on) if he has to work weekends.

You still haven't finished the second chapter of the Epic of Unspecified Length that you wanted to finish by February, you're stalled on your pre-series one-shot, you've got a handful of other plotbunnies lurking in the background, you've completely fallen off the face of your other primary fandom, and you haven't even broken into the other two that you want to write.

And yet you went and entered a fic challenge for a fandom you promised you were only going to observe from a distance. And the deadline means it has to be your new top priority. No cookie for you!

No love,
the person who has to clean up the brain when you leave
