I know it's been quite a few years since I last wrote, and I hope you're doing well. Since I seem to remember you doing quite a good job meeting my requests in the past, I thought I might give it another try.
Here's what I would like for Christmas:
I'd like to win the PowerBall, so Joe and I can stay at home with our family every day. It doesn't have to be a huge amount; we'd be happy with the base jackpot.
If that is out of the question, how about the following:
I'd like the top of the column on the side porch to be replaced. All it needs is to be slid back up to the top and secured with a screw. Well, perferrably two screws, but I know there's already one right there waiting. If memory serves me correctly, the second one was dropped on the ground way back in April or May or whenever it was we were trying to rescue the small creature (bird?) that was stuck in the column.
I'd also like for the flower bed in front of the porch to be cleared out, leaving just the hydrangea that I believe is still under there somewhere. You see, the hydrangea was the only thing I really wanted there in the first place, and it was quickly swallowed up by the wildflowers this summer and the weeds this fall. If you rescue it for me, I will do all I can to nurse it back to health (let's be realistic, I'll probably just replace it) and surround it with some mulch.
While you're at it, how about getting rid of the weeds in the rest of the beds along the front of the house? Joe has wanted to fill them with white marble since we moved in and I'll take care of that once the weeds are gone.
I'd like for that one cabinet door in the kitchen to be refastened to the cabinet. Heck, I'll do this one myself - but I need four 1 1/2" wood screws, and if you could put the drill and the bits I need out on the counter with the screws, I'd appreciate it. Oh, and if you could make sure the drill is charged up, that would be great too.
And finally, if you could clean out my refrigerator, it would really make me merry. And I bet the reindeer would love to snack on that gelatinous goo that's under the fruit bin. How does anything get UNDER the fruit bin, anyway?
Thanks Santa - don't work too hard, and make sure you shine Rudolf's nose, just in case it's foggy this year!
