Random Letters on A Wednesday

Dear Headache that is threatening to suck the life right out of me,

You have overstayed your welcome. I looked at the calendar, and you are too early. You have no business being here right now, so please go away. I can do without the nausea, the exhaustion, the light/sound issues. All of it. Come back in a few weeks, would you? Or, better yet... don't come back at all.

Crankily yours, B



Dear Idiots Who Are In Charge of making sure I don't fall and break my neck on my way to work,

You suck. Normally, when it's icy and it rains... it creates a rather disastrous mess. See the thing about ice, is once it gets wet... it become a nightmare to navigate over. Rubber soled shoes, plus wet slippery ice equates for a miserable me. Would it have killed you to get out early and maybe throw some sand down on the same sidewalk that all those kids have to travel down? I realize that we didn't get a delay and maybe it was too early and you were in bed. But c'mon now. Work with me.

Dear Weather Dudes,

I am tired as all hell of winter. Please stop predicting storms for our area. I don't want more snow. I am tired of shoveling. I am especially tired of shoveling out the fire hydrant, just to have the asshole highway department come by with the plow and bury the damn thing back up. I am tired of the cold. I am tired of my hands being so chapped and cracked and bleeding. I want to walk before school again. I want the sun to shine warm on my face. I want this winter to end. I don't want to hear about another storm headed our way. I don't want to hear about winter weather alerts and storm watch updates. Bring me spring please.

ps. these little bibs started out as a watermelon sweater (I named it that because the colors remind me of a watermelon.. they are much better in "non-winter grey light") that wasn't working out. I bought the book "One Skein" with a gift card I got from my brother and couldn't resist making these bibs. They are for the gift closet. I used Lion Brand Cotton Ease yarn, and am making a set of matching washcloths. Too cute.

First off, the bibs are freaking adorable. Second, it's in short supply but I'd gladly share some of our sunshine with you. Big hugs.
