Friday’s Letters

Dear Friday, It is so nice to see you!
Dear Readers, from time to time we do things to impact the community to get people to register to vote. Last night, we had a rally to encourage people to get their ID so that they will be able to vote in the next election. It afforded me the opportunity to see old friends and meet new ones. (Jeff Johnson, Roland Martin, Stephen Green and Rev. Jesse Jackson, Sr. pictured with me).

Dear Stephen, Thanks for the pics from the event. Love the pictures with my mommy!

Dear 80’s, come back to me! This was one of my favorite promos from McDonald’s!

Dear Randomness of Life, there are certain things that make me giggle. Like Traffic Cops training for duty… something about newbies out there running from the cars that they are telling to “go” and “stop”.

Dear Hubby, It’s the weekend to go see Sparkle! YAY!
Dear Mommy, I am so happy you are home. Let’s go to the movies together.

Sometimes and Always

I'm taking my August workcation. I come into the office everyday and basically go on Pintrest until 5.
Sometimes: This very thought creeps into my mind.
Always: When they blocks on all the fun sites then I just find something else to do in my “down time.”
Sometimes: I think about what I am going to eat for lunch on the ride into work.
Always: I wait until the last possible minute where I am starving beyond belief and still don’t know what I want.
Sometimes: I wish I could just close my office door and take a full on nap for about an hour!
Always: I really think I can get away with this.. but have not even tried it.
Sometimes: At work we all leave our doors open and yell at each other down the hall.
Always: It makes the day go by faster!
