1983 Catherine's Letter - March 28

Catherine's last letter from March 1983. Transcription follows.

Monday, March 28, 1983

Dear Mother & Dad,

Hi!  Since I didn't get a letter off to you last Thursday on my usual writing day I'll try to write something in the few minutes I have now.  Last week and the next few weeks will be especially busy for us as we try to get everything wrapped up at the Elks.  Gerry has decided not to go as an officer after all so they found someone else to become Leading Knight for the next Lodge year.  That will give us more time to do some things we haven't had a chance to do for the last two years   We are looking forward to getting this Secretarial and bookkeeping work finished up so we will be done with it.  It will certainly make a major difference in the amount of free time we have.

The public schools are on spring break this week so Wendy also has the week off from pre-school.  It doesn't seem much like a vacation to her though since she still has to go to Day Care.  Tuesday & Wednesday she will be going to a babysitter though so that will be a little change of pace.  Wednesday night will be the Elks birthday dinner.  At Day Care on Thursday they will be coloring Easter eggs and on Friday they have the "hunt."  The Elks also have a large scale Easter egg hunt on Sunday afternoon.

Speaking of Easter, have you gotten the book I sent you yet?  That is an Anniversary present, so "Happy Anniversary."  I hope you have another 35 years of marital bliss!

How is Grandma doing?  I assume she is all settled in by now and back in the New Vienna routine.

It's time for me to get to the Post Office and then to work.  Sorry this is so short but better than nothing right?

Love, Catherine, Gerry & Wendy
