Dear MaryJanes June 13th

Dear MaryJanes,

Tuesday June 13th.

Today is Jenny's [cousin] birthday. I got her a picture for her house of a old time window w/ a window box full of flowers. She liked it. Mike asked Brad {Jenn's then boyfriend} if he was going to give Jenn a ring for her birthday, but he said he got her a stereo. Grandma Greene called awhile ago to see if there was any "good news" from Jenn. But it doesn't look like it. I took Jenn's gift to her at Sam's daycare. I played on the floor w/ the kids. I put all of my hair in front of my face and made boogieman sounds. They kept saying, "again, again" One little boy would say, "gin, gin" I spent the day doing laundry and cleaning. - no not your room. I put some $ in your account as it was over drawn. It's been raining most of the day and the west side of Madison & Middleton are having flooding. Sam {Jenn's other aunt} & I are planning a wedding shower for Kari { My nephews previous wife} I wish you could come. Jenny & grandma are asking for your address. We called about Amtrak tickets, OH MY!!!! forget that idea. We are going to rent a car for a week. The train was way too expensive. One way was $220.00 / ticket then we would have needed a sleeping cab for 2x's on the way there $220 & $269 over the cost of the tickets. Then back would have more than doubled that. We can rent a car for about $350 for a week and get a motel 1/2 way. I talked to your dad, he bought another plane. He isn't sure if he will fly or a buy a ticket in advance for a cheap rate.
We will see.
Love, Galoshes

{Ticket prices are for MJ's basic training graduation travel}


  1. happy for you...! I can so identify at the small gestures of caring. Like the cleaning, planning.. money in the account. Love it...

  2. I've been catching up on the last few posts, must have been so hard to have her gone, but it sounds like she did well with it...

  3. I often wonder if I had a harder time with her going, she had it harder physically. But I had time on my hands trying not to think of her in that hot weather as she does not do well in hot weather, then add in the physical work. I was a mess!
