Dear Stomach,

Stahp. It's 10am and you're growling like it's 3pm and we haven't eaten. What is your deal?! 

No love,
Ollie

Dear BF,

Thanks for being so freaking amazing. I really wish we could have met sooner. You are such a blessing to me and the girls. I'm so blessed to have you.

Lots of Love,
Your GF

Dear State of Floida - Department of Revenue,

YOU SUCK! You're such a pain in the ass. Why can't you get your shit together and issue child support payments like you're supposed to? Seriously, we're still 4 payments behind, and the ball's in your court. 

No love for your stupidity...

    Dear Self, 

    I'm pretty sure this is the most consistent you've ever been with working out. KEEP IT UP!

    Dear Work,

    WOOOOO! BONUS AND A RAISE!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    Dear H,

    Please, please, PLEASE can I plan our anniversary trip already?! I realize the world is a big place but we don't have an indefinite amount of money or time off work so that really helps to narrow it down. Your input would be greatly appreciated.

    Dear FI,

    Thank you for being such an awesome guy. I love that I have a FI that all of my friends like. You're the best. Thanks for snowblowing the driveway late last night, cleaning out my car, turning the car around so I didn't have to back out of the driveway AND warming up my car this morning. Seriously, you're the best. Can't wait to be Mrs. K!

    Dear Mom,

    @Ollie08 and @buddysmom80 - THANK YOUUUUUUU! My raise doesn't officially get approved until next month but I had a meeting with my boss yesterday and he says I'm good :)

    Dear Self,

    When you weigh yourself on Saturday you only have yourself to blame.

    Girl who ate nachos and didn't work out this weekend because we were traveling (excuses, excuses)

     

  • Dear Boss,

    I'm so sad about the way things are going at work.  How can you actually not show up to work for an entire WEEK, and then reply sparingly to emails…and most of your replies contain 90% snark?  How do you honestly believe that you can run a start up company when you are NEVER around, have no structure, cannot manage to show up to work consistently, refuse to give direction, get angry when people ask for clarity, and then accuse the ENTIRE office of doing nothing?

    I see no growth for myself here because I see no growth for this company.  Because companies don't grow when there is zero leadership or direction.  So, I'm going to keep my head down, do whatever you ask, and look for another job.  I will not quit.  I will not put myself through the financial disarray I had last year.  But I want out.  Already.  And it's because of you.

    No love,

    Newest employee

    P.S.  My coworkers feel the same way.  We are all looking for new opportunities.  

    P.P.S.  I'm really upset that you showed up to work yesterday, for the first time in a WEEK, at 5pm, when we were supposed to leave at 5:30pm.  Then we all had to stay 2.5 hours LATE to accommodate you and the orders you barked at us…because you couldn't be bothered to show up on time.  We all have lives, and we make plans after work.  It's not fair that we all had to cancel our plans because of your poor time management skills.  I get it.  It's your name on the company, and you can show up whenever the hell you want.  But have some respect for our time.  The ONLY reason we all had to stay late was because YOU showed up late.

    ---

    Dear Self,

    I really hope you find the energy to start applying for new jobs soon.  This isn't gunna work.

    Signed,
    How do I always find the nuts?

    ---

    Dear DH,

    I'm sorry we had to cancel date night last night because of my job.  And I'm sorry that I was too upset to put out.  And I'm sorry I ignored you and responded to work emails all night.  And I'm sorry I had to field calls from my hysterical coworkers all night.  And I'm sorry the light from my phone woke you up when I got called and emailed at 1am.

    I now feel hypocritical for giving you shit about working overtime.

    Love,

    Wifey
    ---

    Dear Brother,

    I know that you were trying to help when you told me to "suck it up" about my work situation yesterday.  But it's unfair for you to compare our work situations.  I get that you have to deal with shit at your job too…but you get compensated very, very well to deal with that shit.  Roughly 10x what I make, actually.

    Can you not?

    Love,
    Sister who would literally amputate her own legs to make that kind of money

    Dear FI,

    You are wonderful I love you.  I love that you want to give me the perfect wedding ring, and it's so tempting to just say let's do it.  I just feel guility about how expensive it is.  I'm trying to work on other solutions...

  • @Loves2Shop4Shoes - Crap!  I'm so sorry this job isn't working out for you.  Your boss sounds terrible! I've got my fingers crossed that you find something else soon. 
  • Dear bf,

    Siriously, you're amazing. I am lucky to have you in my life. You are not overly mushy or overly emotional and I'm perfectly ok with that, it's the sweet little gestures or comments that just make my heart soar.

    Also the comment about buying me boobies made me ecstatic. Yes, I am shallow about that. I don't care. I want bigger boobies.

    Love,

    Girl who is realizing that she may just be in love


    Dear brother and fsil,

    I love you both dearly, but FFS I don't like the wedding date you picked.... It does not make travel plans easy.... I will have no downtime between the wedding, flying out and working.... Gah.

    Whatever, ill deal with it, but dammit lol.

    Love,
    Girl that loves traveling and going home but the going back to work thing sucks

    Your boss sounds like an inconsiderate prick. I know you've had more than your fair share of job hunts over the past few years, but I don't think this is the right place for you.

    Yup.  And then he accuses us of doing nothing.  We have to submit daily productivity logs.

    I must say, being micromanaged by a boss who is NEVER around is a new experience for me.

    @minskat30 - I'm pushing for Costa Rica but H hasn't given me any feedback on that idea. We didn't do a beachy HM so I want to be able to lay in the sun for a couple days on this trip. I also know that I'll be bored to death if I'm just laying on a beach for a week straight. Any ideas for you?

    Dear BFF,

    YAY! I got a room booked for the night of your wedding! Who would've thought rural North Georgia would be so darn busy and have next to nothing available. I hope our hotel is as nice as it seems...at least it's only 10 minutes from your venue.

    I can't freaking wait to see you get married in a couple months!

    Love, your LaLa

    Dear FI,

    I love it when you cuddle me all night...but oh jeez last night you turned in to a boa constrictor. I'm sorry I had to push you away but you were seriously suffocating me and about to push me over the edge of the bed and I just wanted some room.

    I love you! FI

    ~~~

    Dear Puppy,

    Quit getting yourself in to trouble. I can't believe you actually managed to puncture your cornea yesterday because you decided you had to dive in to a bush after your ball. I'm really glad you should heal normally and I'm also glad the vet bill wasn't as bad as it could be. I'm not sure if it's a good thing or not that the vet recognizes us and remembers your name whenever we walk in the door.

    Love, your mommy



  • @Swazzle - We are looking at Mexico but we did that for our HM so I feel like we are really boring.  H doesn't want to do a cruise though I think one would be fun.  I wouldn't mind doing a trip to Europe but we've both been to many places in Europe and I feel like our yearly trips to India are our cross-country ones we need to save up for (both money wise, vacation wise and patience wise).  We would love to do Hawaii but it is so freaking expensive. BTW, can you believe it has almost been a year? Time flies.
