Open Letter to Santa
We got our new security doors and new, sturdier side door installed this week. This is great, except that we now have a lot of painting to do of door frames and the new door. I know it's a busy time of year, but maybe you could spare an elf to help us paint? Please.
Other than help with the never-ending list of home-maintenance projects, the gifts I want this year aren't things that the elves can build. I want more fun times with friends; more travel with Chad to places such as Washington D.C., New York City, Boston, Ireland and Marfa; more moments of discovery and joy.
I apologize that we haven't decorated for Christmas yet, unless you count putting the red & green collar on the dog, but we've been awfully busy. We're gonna get right on that tomorrow!
So, um, what time can I expect the painter-elf to arrive?
