Dear Monday

Would love to link this up, but my tutor (ahem) never showed me how! So I'll just start....

Dear Monday, Thanks for one last morning of sunshine in Las Vegas before we head home to the beautiful Pacific NW. You are much easier to live with since my retirement, but I do appreciate the wonderful start to the week.

Dear Wally, Thanks for being such a wonderful partner, both this weekend and in life! It is fun to surprise you, and you take it so well. I always have fun with you, even when you steal my iPad away from me!

Dear Scott & Sarah & Sandra & Nick, Thanks so much for helping me pull off the coup of the year by surprising Wally with the trip to Vegas for our anniversary. He had no clue! I think our wonderful children have played very large part in the ultimate success of our marriage, and can't thank you enough. Here's to 30 more years!

Dear Vegas, You are beautiful and showy, particularly at night, but just a little too artificial and shallow for me. I can take you only for a few days before I need to get back to the real world. I'll take blue jeans and honesty over glitz and stilettos any day.

Dear Left Hip, Thanks for hanging in there this past weekend. You let me know when I walked too much, but let me do plenty of walking, which I do appreciate. Regardless, it's time for you to go! Hope you don't mind that your replacement will be installed next month (one month, five days, and 17 hours...not that I'm counting).

Dear People Who Bring Small Children to Sin City, What in the heck are you thinking? 'Nuff said.

One of my goals this week is to relearn how to post a blog! What's on your plate this week?


  1. You totally figured out how to write the blog post! You're awesome. To link up, go here: and then at the bottom, put in your url (, your email address (it doesn't send you anything), and the name of your blog and voila, you've linked up!

  2. Yay! Love these! A surprise Vegas anniversary trip?! How AMAZING is that!! How fun! So glad you figured out how to link up your little Monday letters with aide from your "tutor" ;) ha! Happy new week!
