The Trouble With Tenses

Dear John,

I'm still mixed up - I keep talking about you in the present tense and myself in the past tense. Jen says I have a free hall pass right now, so mistakes are okay. Verb tenses are getting away from me these days.

Your family came over for breakfast before heading home. Jim and I took Jethro outside to play; a good time was had by all. At one point Jethro got in the boxwoods - completely in the boxwoods - with nothing but his head visible. I had my cell phone out to take a picture to show you, then realized I couldn't go see you at the hospital any more. I wonder how long I will do that. (I also wonder what was going on in the dog's head - why hide in the boxwoods?)

Jethro had a good time with Uncle Jim. But he misses his Daddy terribly. And so do I. In every conceivable verb tense.

Love you so, so much,
Joan.
