I had a good time with Jim and Irene today. Jim put Elyssa's bed together, and he and Irene hauled the big cabinet and chair downstairs. I have a good start on setting up my workroom in the basement and getting Elyssa's room ready.
I went to church for Great Vespers tonight - I hated to leave Jim and Irene, but thought I would be the only chanter there. Father found out that they were in town tonight; bless him, he asked Charlie to chant and sent me home. He's such a sweet man. He was willing to do it without a chanter, but I would have balked about that. He has enough to do.
I'm up way too late for a Saturday night, but I had to say thank you for having such a nice family. Because of you I have a second mother and a sister, and Jethro has Uncle Jim to play with him. Thank you so much for all of them.
