Dear John,

Monday - a very busy Monday! This is where I pay for taking two sick days last week. I worked 6 1/2 hours today and will go back in tomorrow to just get caught up. But this is the only job I've ever had where I look forward to going to work every single day. So I enjoyed today and will have more fun tomorrow. It's perfect for me - I get paid to be anal retentive. Organizing things all day makes me happy. Kathy has to organize the people - I hate trying to organize people because they don't stay where you put them. Organizing things is so much more satisfying.

I ran into Doris at the post office this morning - had a wonderful time talking to her. Did you realize it's been 12 years now since Red died? Time goes so fast. She said she'd been thinking about me - I told her I've been thinking about her every day, too. Red was a sweet man; I still miss him. 

Yesterday it was in the 90s here, and today's high was in the 60s. I closed the house all by myself yesterday! You thought I'd never turn the AC on without you here to make me do it, didn't you? I turned it on yesterday morning before I left for church. I couldn't leave Jethro to deal with the heat and humidity. I turned it off last night, though, and opened the windows as soon as the temperature dropped to 80. Tonight you'd probably close the house and turn on the heat, but you know me - the windows will be open and I'll sleep in my blue-&-white flannel PJs and be happy as a clam. Clams do sleep better in pairs, but I'll have to make do with the dog. One night last week I half-way woke up and reached out to touch you, and couldn't figure out why you weren't there. Then I woke up the rest of the way and remembered. 

Missing you at night - and during the day - and all the time in between -
