I'm Going to Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter

Dear Wendy,
Sorry about your sore foot. Bummer for you. Maybe it's time for a new pair of shoes. Or maybe you're just getting old.

Dear Wendy,
What does Hui mean?

Dear Wendy,
Good work hanging the curtains. They look fab. Could you kindly take some pictures? And while you're at it, go ahead and return the curtain rods that didn't work - you could use the moolah. A new mirror? A bit of poster art? A rug?

Dear Wendy?
Is that a mustache I see on your upper lip? You might want to consider waxing.

Dear Wendy,
When is Laurie and Co. coming to visit? Please find out and write it on your calendar. Pronto. And maybe go ahead and buy that bed you are considering. P.S. Good job finding a porta-crib and high chair for baby Katie. P.P.S. Time to start putting away marbles. And cleaning out your closet. And installing that window air conditioner.

Dear Wendy,
of the Stormy Eyes? or Peter Pan and?

Dear Wendy,
Just one more week until your guy comes home. Wooohooo! It wouldn't hurt to start shaving again. Good thing the recycling will go out before he can see the leaning tower of pizza boxes. Did you find any small fluffy pillows?

Dear Wendy,
You cannot dance. Please stop embarrassing me by rocking out to Jack Johnson on the freeway. You are sure to see someone you know. Sydney can move like a jellyfish. You cannot.

Dear Wendy,
Do you see the time? Go to bed. And I mean it. You are going to regret this at 6:45am.


Yours Sincerely,
w

XOXOXOXOXO

P.S. You Totally Rock!

Dear Wendy,

You are hilarious. Why must you be so much cooler than me? Though I too cannot dance. Wah

Good job on the curtains!

Dear Wendy,
What on earth are you doing up at 2:00 in the morning. Still not sleeping well?? Loved the leaning tower of pizza boxes. LOL
Hang in there, just one more week.

Deanne said...

Sore foot?? What happened?? New shoes are always good for a good pick me up, for whatever reason! :)

What does 'Hui' mean, did you find out??

I can't dance either, but at this point I have not embarrassed my kids with it....yet.

Dear Wendy,

Fun post. Sounds like you've been busy! I always stay up waaaay too late when my man is out of town, too.

You DO totally rock!

Your cyber space friend,
Nikko

Goodmorning ladies - how fun to wake up to your little notes!

Hi Toni!

Mary - but you can atleast shimmy.

Amanda - it was actually around 12:30 - not so bad for me latley. But I am tired this morning.

Deanne - I went on a nice long run on Saturday. I felt great. Then we went to the mall and hiked another 5 miles (wearing my favorite wedge sandals) and when I got home my right foot was so tired, and achey, and it is still sore. Hui is a mystery - something with the army wives club I think. I could be spelling it wrong.

Hui is a club, or a gathering. Many Univ's and cities have a Nui O Hawaii.

Da Hui, is a group of locals on the north shore - also refered to as "Da Black Shorts". They've been around since the 70's, and are known for regulating tourists in the lineup. As with anywhere on the islands - respect for your Bruddah is key. Da Hui help remind people of this respect in a
special way.

Hope ya don't mind me checkin in with your blog from time to time. Its really well written and kinda addicting.

Nikko - I'm glad to know I'm not the only girl staying up too late.

Hi Evan - I am cracking up about the "remind people of this respect in a special way!" Thanks for the Hui info - you are S.M.A.R.T.

So funny! My advice--don't shave until the day he comes home? With all the growth, that one shave will make you super smooth! :)

Sketchy said...

Dear Wendy,

You do Totally Rock. And have fun when that man of yours comes home!

Annie said...

Dear Annie,
Did you read Wendy's blog today? It's really clever. Do you think she will hate you forever if you steal this idea sometime?

marallyn ben moshe said...

wendy said...

Ernie - Nathan had fun visiting with you guys!

CJ - I'm up late again, want to hang out - there is a super creapy sound outside the front door...

Muse - I've been wearing real shoes, not flip-flops (slippah's) and my foot is feeling better. I will run in the morning and see how I feel.

Dear Annie, Go ahead. It's fun!

Aloha Marallyn - thanks for visiting!
