Letter To My Future Self....

In celebration of her 300th follower, Kristin is having a blogfest today.  It requires you to write a letter to your future self.  If you didn't sign up, hop on over and get to it.  Here's mine.

Dear Heather of the Future:

Four weeks ago, I did something that I hope I will not regret.  I walked away from my full time job.  In case you don't remember, it was making me into a person I no longer recognized.  My fun, carefree self had disappeared.  She's back now, and I could not be happier.  Tugboat is thrilled that I/we are home together every single day.  He's also happy to see me smile again.  I did this so you could enjoy the rest of your life.  So that you could see that there is still hope outside of the toxic cubicle walls you were trapped inside of.  So that you could learn how great life really is.

I hope you are enjoying the healthy body I am working so hard to create for you, and I'm so sorry that it wasn't ready sooner.  Remember, if it's man-made, it's probably bad for you...

I can't know for sure how it's going to turn out, but I'm still working hard to make you a mommy.  It's been a long road but we are going to give it a few more tries.  Hopefully, you're reading this with a doe-eyed Tug Jr. in your lap. 

I'm trying very hard to write these stories in my head.  I can't promise you that they'll ever amount to anything, but I can promise you that I'm trying.  I also hope you are enjoying that degree and the sense of accomplishment it provides.  I bet you never thought you'd major in English did you?

Well, I have to run! I never thought that being unemployed would be keeping me so BUSY!..

Hope you're enjoying life, chica.  I sure am!



  1. You won't regret it!!

    And wait, are you going to school???!

    Thanks so much for playing along!

  2. This is a great letter. I've never regretted deciding to stay home, even on the bad days. You gotta do what makes you happiest. Good luck!

  3. Aw, Heather this is great. I'm still working on making future-Gina a mommy, too. Keeping my fingers crossed for both of our fabulous future selves!

  4. That's great. I know what you mean about being busier now without a job!! How does that happen? :)

  5. That's such a great move - congratulations on being that brave and good luck with the baby making!

  6. Aww, congrats on quitting your job and being happy again! I very much support that. :)

  7. I'm so glad quitting your job helped you find yourself again! That's awesome!! And good luck with that baby making. :)
