Dear Dan,

Oh my, I feel like I got a full dose of time with you last weekend! The lake was a blast and I completely enjoyed meeting your roommates, Mark and Steve. You have my approval to live with them (I know you three were worried). Let them know that next time we will be ready to cream them in spades! Jen said to tell you all she had fun and thanks for the invite.

Tell your dad thanks for letting us “drop in” on him and his cabin.  Not sure his holiday was all that relaxing with the five of us there. Hopefully we didn’t scare all the fish awayJ. He has done some amazing work on the cabin, it is much more comfortable than the last time we were there.

Mom, of course wasn’t pleased with me for not coming home and going to grandmother’s with her. I’ll have to run home for a night next weekend; started my job at the mall so I’ll work part of the weekend.

Thank you for all of your encouragement about school and finishing. I will start getting my resume together and feelers out on jobs. It’d be great to walk out of graduation and into a job. As much as I would love to find something there, I’m going to look in both places to give me more options.

Off to do laundry and read a few hundred pages. I love you sweetie. You are never far from my heart or thoughts.
