I'm very new to blogging and have basically just been following Aunt Crazy around like a lost little puppy. I had no idea there was so many things I can be doing here. I was just getting ready to shut down the computer for 'Girl's Night at Stacy's' when I came across Letters of Intent that took me to Foursons blog. Because I am nosey and like being a part of everything, I read a few then typed up my own. So here's my letter .... (and while I have most of tomorrow to myself, I will be settling at my computer in the morning with my coffee to read the rest of the letters from today).
Don't think I didn't see you. I did. I was just minding my own business picking up a few things at the grocery store, trying with all my might to ignore even the Halloween displays when I thought I caught a glimpse of you behind the shelf of pumpkin stencils. I shook my head, kept walking, and thought I must have been seeing things. I had been having little flash backs since then, but was trying to push you out of head. It was confirmed to me the other day though when I was getting a cup of coffee from my office kitchen. A knot formed in my stomach as I approached what only could have been one of your messangers ... a catalogue of gifts all wrapped in red & green & gold. With an order-by date, and a guarantee to be delivered by .... yes, December 24. Although you knew that I knew, and everyone was catching on, I felt it mean spirited to move so quickly. Well, the cat is out of the bag, we know you are coming. But, I am warning you ... stay away from me. Just until next month. Let me enjoy the start of soccer season, Thanksgiving, then Halloween and I promise to pay attention to you when that's all over with ... mid-November at the latest. Until then, I'm sorry, but I have to put my foot down. You do not exist to me yet and you can't make me acknowledge you. If you push me, I will push back. If you try to dig your way in before I am ready, I just may have to cut you out of my life forever. I mean it, back off Christmas.
Please and thank you.
