Remember how Helaine set it up so you could play chess with Jake on the Internet. That was fun.
Today is Mom's birthday. I'll let you know her birthday present after I give it to her. It's a surprise. Hope she likes it. It was always easy to buy you a present. Stick to Pokemon, Digimon or Star Wars and we were guaranteed a smile.
Last night I was addressing cards to some of the people who have been nice to you and us over the years. I wrote envelopes to the woman at LucasFilms who gave us the Star Wars stuff (Yoda still keeps guard upstairs); Norman, the nice man who produces the Pokemon movies and gave us Pokemon 4 before it came out in the theater; and last but not least, the super duper sweet woman at Warner Bros. who made sure you saw Harry Potter even though you weren't able to go to a movie theater. There are a lot of nice people in the world. I hope someday I can do favors the way they did and make people smile.
I was telling you about how I have a lot of mixed feelings. Here is one I was thinking about on my way to work this morning. I really LOVE my new job, but I am sad because you aren't here to know all about it and to enjoy it, too. I guess the rest of my life is going to be like that. What are you doing being dead; I've got so much to share with you.
I miss you.
