Hi! – Was happy to get your letter - you sound like you're busy w/ all those jack letters & all.
You would never believe what Rob is watching on T.V. – yep - a ball game. I couldn't even tell you who is playing
Rob & I are getting along fine - he's been so good about watering the yard, etc. The grass is just as green as the day Uncle Bill left! We've only eaten out twice - last Friday night - also tonight. Since I'm on my diet there really isn't too many places we can eat out! I've lost a little over 14 pounds now – my clothes are beginning to hang a little - which makes me very happy!! Tomorrow night I'm going to experiment on Aunt Mary's sewing machine - I'd like to make some pants to wear to work.
Math is going all-right. We had our 1st test this last week & I think I did ok on it. The course is already 1/3 over!! Because of Memorial Day we won't have class this coming Monday – I can't say that I'm disappointed.
I had a nice letter too from Catherine. She really seems to like Maine. As she said - she is only 15 miles from the same ocean that I'm only a few miles from!!
Rob still seems to like his job alot. Last week he got paid for the 1st time - and was he happy – he made more money than he thought he would. Even after taxes, etc. he made just over $2.00 an hour! He put his 1st paycheck ALL in the bank!
I'm working every Sunday, but I really can't complain as I get off 2 days through the week, also you get extra pay for working Sundays.
I've got my lunch all ready made to take to work tomorrow. I'm having Tuna Fish 2/ lemon juice, 1/2 cup mushrooms, celery & radishes. I've eaten so much celery & carrots I'm afraid I'm going to start acting like a rabbit!!
Thanks again for you letter – I'm still enjoying the Wilmington News Journal.
