Dear So and So... wk3

It's that time again. 

Dear readers,
I can not believe it has been 1 yr since Flight 3407 crashed in Clarence.  I can still remember getting out of the shower, turning on the tv and realizing that Chris Cuomo was talking about the Buffalo Airport.  This is what I wrote the Monday after:
Planes don't drop from the sky!?!?
(at least they usually don't)

I live in Buffalo, NY and have been in shock since I first heard the news that Flight 3407 crashed. I decided that I wasn't going to turn on news coverage in front of my 7 year old son. I don't want him afraid of flying or to freak out every time he sees a plane overhead. How do you explain to a 7yr old what happened? We have planes flying over our home all the time. My husband grew up a couple streets from the airport. I worked in a hotel by the airport for years. I do not know anyone personally who died in the crash. I do know people who are directly effected because they new people who died. One of my husband's friends lost 3 of his co-workers in the crash."
Please take a moment to remember those lives lost, Melanie

Dear Lily,
Please stop dumping all of the bins at once.  Our house looks like a bomb went off.
Tired of stepping on things, mommy

Dear Ian,
Please stop yelling at your sister.
Thank you, mommy

Dear Self,
Go buy Just Dance for Wii!  You know you want to, just do it.  You will have a great time.
Ready to dance, Melanie

Dear Jeff,
I know you said you wouldn't play Just Dance for Wii, but PLEASE?!!!!!  You know you wanna do dance to "you can't touch this"!  *giggle*  (I promise to only laugh a little.)
Begging, pleading & groveling, Melanie

Dear Mom & Dad,
LOVE you and thank you for reading!!  Hope you guys have a wonderful Valentine's Day.
HUgs, melanie
PS...still laughing that you have more snow than we do....

I love these "dear so and so" posts. I may have to take part next week.

I, too, can't believe it's been a year since that plane fell from the sky. I remember hearing about it (and since I work in the news business, I get alerts pretty quickly) and recognizing areas on television. Such a sad day.

Go ahead and buy that Wii game. I bought my husband the Wii drums for Valentine's Day (he opened them last weekend when they arrived) and while they seem ridiculous, he loves them!

My thoughts and prayers are with all those that lost family and friends in that plane crash.

I think you should get Wii dance and have a family dance a-thon!
