Yours Truly.

Dear Attorney General,

Have I told you lately how much I love you?
And have I told you how much I miss you when you're gone?
And have I told you I accidentally went to Target and bought some stuff?

But really, I do miss you. I want you to come home soon. There is no way that what you are doing out of town is more important than what you could be doing in town. I mean, seriously, Remi and I set up a tent in the living room today. Did you do that in Dallas? Doubtful. We had so much fun and she wants you to come play in it with her so bad. And who can blame her because you are wonderful and fun and who the heck doesn't love to be around you? And who doesn't love to go to Target? Did I mention that I did that?

But seriously, when are you coming home? I know you are in Tulsa today and I know you are tired and are sick of eating out. Well, have I got some good news for you because I just happen to go to Target today and get some stuff that I can cook for you when you get home this weekend. So that's a good thing, right? A home cooked meal??? That's a rarity, huh? But it doesn't have to be now that we have a SuperTarget right down the street. Thank God for Target, eh?

Didn't we have a good time at the beach last week? I am so glad we took tons of pictures so that we can savor those moments forever. Precious, precious moments. Of me and you and the love that we share for one another. Of course, what good are pictures without frames? Well, to answer that question - "NO GOOD." Soooooo I bought us some frames today. At Target. I went there. Have I said that yet?

Remember a couple of days ago when you said, "Melissa, what is going on with your hair?" Well, you didn't say that as much as I said it, but no one has to ask that question any more since I found out Target carries the Big Sexy Hair line of products. Lucky for me, right? No. Lucky for you, too. Because I don't want you to be embarrassed when you go out with me, so in all actuality I bought those products for you. Sure, they go on my hair - but they are for you.

Well, I guess I better get back to playing in the tent with the Remster. Remember the days of our youth when we would spread blankets out across chairs in our living room? Those were swell, huh? Of course nowadays that is unnecessary because Target carries little pop-up tents in all sorts of bright colors and so I just grabbed one of those. What? I didn't mention that before? Oh...well, this is awkward.

I will let you go now. Remember that I love you. And that I miss you terribly. I will be waiting right here, at the home we have made together - with outstretched arms - for you when you arrive home. Just for you. My love. (But if I'm not here when you get home it's because I had to make a quick deposit in the bank for a few things that accidentally ended up in my cart.)

All my love. Yours forever. In sickness and in health. For richer for...uh, you get the gist.

Welcome home! The Super Target is exactly what we did, well - the entire time you guys were at the beach! Have you been to Livin the Wood Life? All of our confessions are posted over there. And the Big Nanny, well that should help get ya off the hook with the AG. My child is a parrot and talks about the Super Target every day, begging to go back. That's all well & good when it's just the two of us. It doesn't go over so well when dad rolls in.
