If we go large scale.
Dear Mr. Economy,
I've been such a good girl this year. I finally found that stupid budget that you kept telling me to look for. Mr. Architect and I have met MANY times and I have become good friends with all the contractors I've interviewed.
I've really tried to cut back in anticipation of "THE PROJECT." I scaled down Christmas. I haven't had a manicure or pedicure in months! We have pasta twice a week for dinner and I try to buy store brands.
Please, Please, please settle down. Get back to normal so that my husband calms down and lifts the spending freeze! Come on Mr. Economy, we are ALL sick of how you have been behaving.
