A Basque in Boise

Dear Santa…


Pretty much like everything I’ve done this year, I write my letter to Santa with 5 minutes to spare. Then again, pretty much like everything else this year, I am doing it. I won’t be long, there is really only one thing I want. But before I ask for it, let’s do a short recap of 2010.

This has been a good but very tough year. I got a full-time job, kept my translation business going, and moved into my own house, which made my kids way happy. But along with it came additional responsibility, a more stressful life, and two or fifteen extra pounds. I have kept (as best as possible) in contact with my existing buddies, met a bunch of new people, and fixed one out of two broken friendships. On the other hand, I have lost free time, sleep, and a bunch of stuff when some bastards broke into my house last month. I also lost something that was never mine, only to find it again, and it is even less mine now than it ever was. Shucks.

I got 17 minutes to get my request in. Better get it done (ugh!). Dear Santa, this year all I want for Christmas is a little bit of will power. It doesn’t even have to be Costco-size; one of those travel-sized bottles they sell at Fred Meyer will work. I promise I got some cookies out for you (it’s ok, I didn’t bake them, they are yummy). I also have a couple of gallons of whole milk with Vitamin D, or Almond Vanilla milk. You can have either one, but the Almond milk has 1/3 the calories. I’m just saying.

Thanks for reading and don’t work too hard tonight.


PS. – If you are out of will power bottles, a good-looking Basque sugar daddy will do as well.

PS (bis). – A good-looking *single* Basque sugar daddy.

    JAJAJAJAJA. Is will power battery-powered? I can think of something that looks like it that Santa could bring you instead, and sort of for the same purpose, with added instant gratification. What could be better? OK, OK, the good-looking single Basque sugar daddy, I know… but it sounds like an oxymoron altogether… Feliz Navidad, amiga. Súper amiga. Maite Zaitut eta eskerrik asko por hacerme cagar de risa, como siempre.

    Is the oxymoron because of the “good-looking Basque”, the “Basque sugar daddy”, or “good-looking sugar daddy”?

    Maite zaitut as well, my cool-ass che. Thank you again for my present, ese sí que me está haciendo morir de risa.

    El oxímoron es todo eso junto. Creo que es papá noel (porque no existe). Y tu presente, es que tenía tu nombre (y el mío, claro) escrito en la tapa…

    Hey there, Chico,
    Not sure if you remember me, but I used to work at ProClarity. We met at one of the See Spot Walk events, when I dressed Rex’s dog Lily up in baby barrettes and such. Just read your December 25th blog post and wanted to pass along a little encouragement your way. You are an amazing, strong person and I know you will do very well in all your endeavors. I did the single-mom thing, too, and I want to tell you that things really do work out for the best in the long run. Might not feel like it sometimes, but they do.
    I wish you all the very best always.

    Hi Denise! Thanks so much for your your kind words, it’s so nice to hear from other women that have been where I am, and can tell me it all works out. I do well for the most part, I just wish the days had a couple extra hours! I am glad to see that you are doing good.

    I hope the holidays are treating you well. Thanks again for taking the time to send some encouragement my way.
