In my last entry (March 10) I told you that I will be trimming the rosebush. Guess what, when I was pretty sure that we were done with frost and such I had about 16 rosebuds on the bush - no way of trimming it down now. Last week I had in varies colors all of 26 roses - WOW - it looked absolutely beautiful.
In the meantime, my birthday has come and gone. I had loads of messages on Facebook. The usual "Happy Birthday" from Jason. He is still upset with me, but I can't help that. Steven - send me a nice message, followed up with a phone call and a bouquet of flowers. The balloon is still hanging on the ceiling next to me - and it's been over 3 weeks now.
Yesterday was my one-year anniversary of becoming a US citizen - and in 9 days is your 3-year anniversary for leaving me to be with Jesus - where has the time gone? I still find myself often turning to the place where you used to sit at your computer to tell you something. I still miss you like crazy and I love you just as much.
Jackie and Steve got married 4 weeks ago. You never met Steve but you would have liked him. He has a wacky sense of humor. I've never seen Jackie smile so much than she has been doing since she met Steve.
Tony is writing his comprehensive exam on Wednesday and the graduation ceremony is on Friday. I am so proud of him and I know you are too. He is working at the game store but will start of setting up his own practice. He is good at what he is doing.
Sweetheart, I will try to remember to write more often, but won't promise anything. I am talking to you every night. I love you lots and lots and oodles and gobs.
