Day Off

I decided with the RLS and projects I have to work on that we wouldn't have Sunday Dinner this week. Kim also brought in the wood for the shelves in the kitchen, so it's not very convenient to have people here. I miss everyone being here, but it's kind of nice to have just us three here.

I received a letter from my friend Kris yesterday. That got me to thinking about how we communicate these days. I really like FaceBook to keep in touch with people far away. By the time they would get a letter in the mail(sometimes 2 weeks)the news wouldn't be fresh any more. I like texting with my girls when we happen to be watching the same tv program like DWTS and we just need to convay some thought such as, did you see that dress? Or American Idol, Why did he audition? Or when Kim is on the way home and wants to know if I need him to stop somewhere. Emails are great and alot of times I print them so they don't accidently stay on a computer that then quits and I have no email addresses or unprinted letters. Yup, that happened this summer and we still haven't retreived any of it. Hand written letters are special though. They tell me that I meant enough to this person to take the time to find paper and a decent pen to write with. To think about what to write and not just a few notes and updates, but what she is feeling and doing, little interesting things that probably aren't importanr enough to put in an email, but I am glad she thought to tell me them. I often think about elderly relatives and think I should send them a card with a letter just telling what we are doing and asking how they are. I usually don't do it though, because I think I am too busy. I will do it tomorrow. The only problem is tomorrow never comes. After getting this letter and realizing how good it made me feel, I am going to try sending hand written letters more often.

November 3rd

Well last Saturday I slept all night for the first time in several weeks. Last night I didn't sleep much at all and spent the night moving my legs. I did have coffee after supper, so I guess I won't be doing that again. I hope that was the problem.
I have the purple brides maid dress almost done. Hannah comes for the final fitting today. The top fits and I just have to deal with the hem. The part I hate doing.
All the kids were here last weekend for Evelyn's birthday. It was so nice having them all here.
