Does anyone else find it really hard to believe that we are only a week away from the end of February? Weren't we all just writing about Christmas? I swear time just keeps speeding up and speeding up. We are not even slowing down for the curves in the road.
Time to write a few letters:
Dear Mother Nature: Thank you so very much for the brief respite you gave us this week. To actually have a day where it was almost 70* gave me so much HOPE. I am not crazy enough to believe that you are through with throwing some winter our way, but it really helped to have a couple of days of beautiful sunshine and no snow! All of the 14 inches are gone. And thank goodness so are the ice dams.
Dear Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics: What a week this has been. It was awesome to see Ted Ligety win the men's giant slalom. The first time a non-European wins Gold in this sport. My heart melted as Meryl Davis and Charlie White won ice dance gold. Skating together for 17 years! The deserved it. And I was so proud for Adelina Sotnikova from Russia as she skated beautifully to become the first Russian to win gold in women's figure skating. Her emotional reaction touched my heart. I would have loved to have seen an American victory but Adelina deserved the medal. I felt the pain of the American women as they lost in hockey today to the Canadians. But those Canadian women have much to be proud of.
Dear NBC TV: I don't like that you are not showing the medal ceremonies this year.At least air the ones that America wins. You are, after-all an American TV station. That was always a highlight for me to watch the medal ceremonies.
Dear Dean at Cox TV: Thank you for listening to my complaints about my cable bill and helping me find a way to make it a bit less. I won't save tons of money, but every little bit helps. And you are right, you aren't a bit like Verizon. Verizon didn't give a hoot about my circumstances when I tried to lower my bill.
