Day 352- Santa

Dear Santa,

I haven't felt very Christmasy yet.  The time has been flying by this year, and it still just feels too early for it all.  On top of that, the weather has been pretty nice thus far, and it has only recently started to get a bit chilly.   Plus, Tom and I haven't really done any of our holiday stuff yet.  The shopping is barely started, the baking and parties are next weekend, and we're supposed to get the tree and do the decorating tomorrow.

My red-suited portly little friend, I know that I have not believed in you for almost twenty years, but I want you to know that I have always held onto my belief that this is a magical season.  I also believe in the true meaning of Christmas and always will.  Imagine my surprise when I was cleaning out my e-mail today and saw my first ever note from you!  I could just believe that it was spam the way Google labeled it, but that wouldn't be any fun, would it?  Instead, I think I'll take it as a sign that Christmas is, in fact, here... ready or not!  Thanks for the reminder to slow down and appreciate the holiday season, Santa Baby.  I'm sorry I've been such a stranger all these years.

XOXO Merry Christmas XOXO,

Jessi

P.S. Am I too old to ask for world peace this year?  Peace on earth?  Goodwill toward men?   
P.P.S. If the whole word peace thing doesn't work out again this year, will you please go with my back-up gift-- a remote car starter?
P.P.P.S. I'll be in MO, TX, and MI for Christmas this year.  I'll leave cookies in all three places, so you just find me when it's most convenient for you.
P.P.P.P.S.  Ok, ok, this is the last one, I promise.  I was just thinking that I'm a little worried about your cholesterol.  Would it be ok if I left healthy snacks instead?  Mrs. Claus told me that you have started Weight Watchers, and I think that's just a great idea.  Now that we have reconnected, I'd love to know that you'll be around for a long time!
