Dear Santa

I know what the problem is -- most of the things I want are hard to wrap and won't fit under the tree. Not to mention that I don't even have a tree.

But please, Santa, be creative. What about gift cards or cash that I could put toward these things? Or perhaps you could contact a contractor or two. You're Santa! Everyone loves you! Naturally they would give you a good price. Maybe you could lend me some elves after the busy season is over. They're industrious and could probably handle the projects on my Wish List in no time!

Bathroom renovation. I know that this will cost thousands of dollars, even though my bathroom is itty/bitty, teeny/tiny. I like my bathtub and floor tiles. Just please, could we do something about that hideous sink and oh! My bathroom walls! I hate the peeling paint. Santa, can't you send someone to help me with this? I'd like a new toilet, too, but I'll continue to make do with the old one if you feel it would help you bring this project in within your budget.

New flooring. The carpet in the hallways is ruined and I hate it. Instead of replacing it, why don't we go to hardwood? Living room, dining room, kitchen, hall and -- oh, why not? -- master bedroom, too. What do you think, Santa? You see homes all over the world. You must have picked up a few decorating ideas. You're making this possible, after all, so your input is welcome. Do you think ceramic laminate would be a better choice? Please, speak up!

Exposed brick in the dining room. Wouldn't that make it look completely separate from the living room? I grew up on I Love Lucy and the Riccardos had exposed brick in their apartment. Ann Marie's New York bachelor-girl pad on That Girl had exposed brick, too. Maybe that's why I feel I'm supposed to have it, too.

A new TV. I know, I know. I've been complaining about this forever! But Santa, I don't want to buy a new TV when the one I have still works. It's just obsolete is all. However, I wouldn't feel remotely guilty about being wasteful and replacing it if you gave me a new one.

My kitchen needs to be redone, too, but I don't want to be greedy. There's plenty here for you to chew on. I believe I've been a pretty good gal throughout the year. Feel free to scroll through this blog and make your own assessment. Whatever you think I fairly deserve will be greatly appreciated, Santa.

Thank you, and Merry Christmas, Sir!

    I love exposed brick. Most of the apartments I've toured recently have them...I hope the apartment we finally decide on has the exposed brick.


Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
