Dear House,

Why are you such a disaster? I know I went back to work full time but that is no excuse.
This is ridiculous. What did you do with my church binder? Where is my nice papercutter? You know, the one that actually cuts paper? Why haven't those tiles been fixed at the top of the stairs? I've wanted that done in -well, I can't tell you how long because I forgot.  And the garage! I don't remember the last time I even parked the car in there. I would like to park it in there again soon.
Also, how long exactly have you been leaking? The water damage has become very evident. Are you
planning on dropping the ceiling on us one of these days?
I hope not.
I think we have been pretty good to you. By today's standards you
would probably be considered old.
But I think we have given you some new life with a new kitchen, windows, tile and paint.
Right? You certainly look better and if you look better than most likely
you feel better. Well, at least I do. Houses are probably different in that
You are still a good house. And you have been good to us.
You keep us warm in the winter, cool in the summer and safe all the year round. I don't want
you to think that I am ungrateful for you. I am most certainly not. Our little family
loves living here. So I guess I will forgive you. What other choice do I have? I don't think
I can forgive you for the leaky roof yet. I don't know how much its going to cost to fix and I am
scared even to think about it. Oh least we are warm.

I love dear house letters..... you will just have to accept a house that is less tidey than it used to be. It goes with the territory of full time working Mom. Welcome to the messy house club.
