Dear Santa,

2008 has worn me out.

Yes, I know I should count my blessings, and I do that every day, I promise.

But between The Politician boycotting haircuts and throwing up every time someone in a 5 mile radius eats an orange and The Wild Child, well, being wild, I am not sure I have any rope left. I'm defintely at the end.

I'm just trying to be a good mom. I want to give my kids whatever tools they need to succeed in life. Actually, even if they end up being slackers, I still want them to be able to be part of the orange-eating, haircut-getting society and live long, happy, healthy lives.

So Santa, all I ask for is to continue to be surrounded by supportive friends who ask questions, listen, and offer advice or even just an ear or a shoulder to cry on. I have made so many fabulous friends this year and I don't know what I would have done without them.

I may also need to increase my dose of Lexapro, but I realize you can't help with that.

We'll have some Peanut Butter Blossoms waiting for you on the fireplace when you stop by on the 24th. (Props to Hershey's for having the recipe on their site!) I'm sure you'll hear from P and WC between now and then. I believe their list is long, but I'm preparing them for a Wise Man Christmas, and I know they will understand why Santa is bringing three gifts. The Sashas are on a mission to help everyone remember The Reason For The Season.

Hang in's been a tough year. But think of the new beer discoveries you wouldn't know about if 2008 hadn't happened! :)

I know how you feel. For whatever reason we had the weekend from hell at our house. Both of my kids behaved like monsters. Just know you are not alone. By the way, I made your Niemen Marcus bars and they are awesome. Thank You.

Oh, girl, it has been a rough one... but overall I feel glad that I survived and looking back I could do it again if I had to.

Get More Lexapro!
