I wanted to let you know that I'm a little worried about your trip home next week. I'm very excited to see you, and I know that the kids will be thrilled. However, I'm worried that you are going to get all tied up in the fact that the Christmas lights are still up, and there are still boxes that need to be unpacked, and whatever yard work that your eyes think needs to be done. Please try to ignore these things. It is such a short visit and I don't want you to spend it stressed out. That will make me all crazy and then we'll both be miserable. I just want to spend some nice, quiet time with you and our family.
Fly safe and I hope to see you soon.
