Back in the day, I looked forward to Friday! Except it wasn't always the start of MY weekend. When you spend your career as a nurse ,you don't necessarily get weekends off. At the beginning of my working life, my weekends off were every third one and it was always on Saturday and Sunday. Later on, after a long campaign, we were able to convince "the powers that were" to change the nightshift weekends to Friday and Saturday. At this same time the hospital decided to give us every other weekend off, instead of the every third weekend. Only then did I begin to love Friday. On to my letters....
Dear Sealed Air: What?!?! I read yesterday on Facebook that you are changing bubble wrap. What are you thinking? It has always been my favorite thing about receiving a package. Who doesn't love popping bubble wrap? You have to have lost a bit of your mind with this choice. I hope you will re-think this and not quit making bubble wrap pop! Come on now and do the right thing
Dear Harley: No one is as hard on you as you are on yourself. I hope that I can start to influence how you think of yourself. You are not too fat! You are not too tall! You do not have feet that are too big. Those little stretch marks on your hips aren't as noticeable to the world as they are to you! You are beautiful just the way you are. You come from a family of really tall people! You are going to be tall. And when you are tall you are going to weigh more than your petite friends. It's not the number on the scale that matters. You are beautiful! Just the way you are!
Dear America: Happy 239th birthday. You are looking pretty good for such an old gal! Happy 4th of July to all of my readers. What are your plans for the weekend? Barbque? Parades? Fireworks? Or just a good day to relax at home?
