Dear work,

Why have you been so slow?!? I feel like I'm getting paid to just sit at my desk. Let's pick it up.

Sincerely,
Bored employee

Dear wedding,

I think about you all the time and I'm getting very excited the closer you get. Yay!

Love,
Your planner

Dear FI,

Why are you on 3 tennis teams? It takes up a lot of time and I'm annoyed that I was forced to cancel plans that we made a month ago because of an unexpected match you had pop up out of no where! Next season lets just do 1 tennis team please.

Love,
Your FI

Dear vacation,

Where ever you are...I'm ready for you so please grace me with your presence!

Love,

Re: OLW

  • Dear BF,

    First order of business: I'm sorry I haven't made a decent dinner or cleaned my own house in a month. But I am super-grande into you because YOU'VE been doing those things! In August, there shall be payback.

    Second order of business: So, we can't use my grandmother's ring anymore when the time comes, apparently. I don't want to just straight-up bring it up, but I have some thoughts on what I would like instead, and they are rather cost-effective! *Raises hand* So anytime you want to solicit my opinion, it is readily available.

    Love,
    Your GF who is trying not to look TOO far ahead

    Dear self,

    Way to rock your second exam and your skills eval! You're doing well. Keep it up.

    Much love,

    Dear Mom,

    Thank you for buying me dinner (and OMG, that INCREDIBLE dessert!) last night. It was amazing and I had a good time talking to you. Sorry I am grouchy and not interactive lately; only 13 more months!

    Love,
    Your daughter

    Dear body,

  • Dear Work,

    Seriously? You just get rid of insuranes if they're not used? Soooo who's fault is it that we were thisclose to losing $25000? Oh no, don't point the finger at me, I didn't build this freaking system.

    ---------------------------------------

    Dear BF,

    Thanks for having the money talk with me last night. I'm glad we're working together more now and saving a ton of more money for the fun shit we're going to do this summer. Can't wait to eat and drink our way up and down the east coast.

    Love,

    Your GF

    --------------------------------------

    Dear Jeweler,

    Please have the settings I want to look at in stock. Even though I don't feel like driving all over the Tri-state area, at least I would have an excuse to meet up with @swazzle and drink!

    Dear Groceries,

    Please just magically show up on my front stoop today. I don't feel like grocery shopping.

    Dear Tax Bill,

    Where the hell are you? I'd like to pay this shit, asap. Seriously, I'm offering the State of Connecticut money and two towns are not claiming me. FFS, I'll just send the money to the town with the lowest mill rate. This is frustrating. I know it's partly my fault, but common sense would tell you when you take out a mortgage for a house in a town, you would figure all personal property would be garaged there as well. Gahhhh.

    No Love for CT

    ----------------------------

    Dear Rain,

    Please don't show up this weekend

    ------------------------

    Dear Buddy,

    I'm sorry you're going to look like a total asshole on Saturday, but I can't stand seeing you laying in front of the AC vent while it's on, even though it's funny because you're so balls out about it. This will be way more hilarious. OMG I CAN'T WAIT!

    Your horrible fur mom

    -------------------------------

    Dear Quigley,

    I'm sorry I accidentally kicked you off the bed last night, Ambien does that to me. Go blame your father for that one.

    Dear Matt,

    Last night was a lot of fun, you're a great guy. But I am just not attracted to you. If you could just kinda figure that out without me having to tell you, that'd be greaaat. We can be friends, but something tells me you won't be all about that :( I will always appreciate you teaching me what a breakfast shot is, though. Can't wait to try that!

    How could you forget about your groupon? It expires today and you never made an appointment with the salon. Way to go me.

    Thank you for actually drinking out of your new water fountain. I am so encouraged that you're plucking up again. A $70 fountain is cheaper than a vet bill, but I do wish you had less expensive taste.

    Usually you can still use the groupon for what you paid for it, so it shouldn't be a total loss!

    Mom,

    I know YOU like to travel but I fucking hate it! I get horrible travel anxiety (which you you know) so I'm stressed out at least two days before leaving and 2 days before coming back not to mention the days of actual travel. Please stop planning these family vacations. I agreed to go on one in August but now you want me to fly to Virgina to visit my grandparents. Of course I would love to see them but two trips in the course of a couple weeks is super stressful for me. So just stop!

    Also, I don't exactly enjoy seeing you because all you do is bitch about my weight, which I'm working on and honestly is none of your god damn business.

    Your extremely annoyed daughter


  • Dear AllYouBitches,

    I've missed it around here.  And I secretly hope you missed me too.  I want to be around more often.  The move is stressing me out and I need you to inject sanity into me.

    Love,

    You will have sex with me tonight, even if you have to do it in your sleep.

  • @Suzie211 we're not sure which area we're moving to.  We're looking at Lakeshore, Gold Coast, and Lincoln Park.  But we'll look at anything in the Loop as well.

    I'm totally open to recommendations!

    @loves2shop4shoes I've lived in GC, Lakeview and River North. All of them are commutable distance to the Loop by bus or the Red line. Also all of them are off the lake and super close to the beach. It's the biggest reason I lived in them:)

    I LOVED my old building in the Gold Coast and would be happy to get you info on it. We have a good friend who owns a real estate company and works rentals, too. We used him to rent out FI's condo, and he had it rented in 3 days. If you need someone a little more familiar with prices, commutablility, and neighborhoods I can get you his contact info. His company was just on House Hunters Monday night so he knows his stuff.

    We moved west to Bucktown because it's a little more family friendly and cheaper than being directly on the lake. The Blue line runs by us and is an easy way to get downtown for FI and right off the expressway for me. We plan on staying here once we start a family.

    I will gladly play tour guide, as well! I have favorite spots in each area that I'd be happy to share.

    Good luck with your move!
