3/17 Happy St. Paddy's Day!

I'm wearing a Hawaiian shirt because it's the only green I have. For lunch here at work we're having corned beef and cabbage, hope there's something for us vegetarians. Actually, I think I'm the only one. Ah, well. I can eat the green cake and cookies, if necessary.

Russ and I talked on the phone last night for over an hour. It was a nice way to end the day.

Just got off the phone with Beata, with last minute stress "stuff." They're leaving Okinawa in about 10 hours. I'll see them in about 30 hours. Can't believe it's getting so close. I'm so excited, but guess what? I slept eight hours last night. It's been almost a week since I've done so. I'm thrilled.

Safe travels for all today, especially my lovely kids.

Oh-oh, my brothers are really going to start teasing me now. I'll tell you about it later. :)

Karen said...

Hi Russ. I am Jer's sister-in-law Karen. I am married to her youngest brother Jim. You guys are kind of burning up those phone lines, aren't you? Jer, I don't think it will be just your brothers!

JER...WE have told you repeatedly to stop pleasuring every Russ you meet....when will you learn?

Jer said...

Cindy, I have no idea what your comment meant, but you cracked me up. Absolutely laughed out loud. Love you and can't wait to see you. You too, Karen. Love Jer

Karen said...

Cindy,

What are you doing home today? We will have to get in touch with Russ to see if he has any questions about our fair Jer! Oh Russ, the stories we could tell you!!! Most of the really good stuff happened before I joined the family, I have only been married into the family for about 12 1/2 years. Cindy is always a great source of info for me! She is a wise woman! Of course we only have good things to tell!!! Right Cindy?!?!?

Jer said...

Ha! He's away from a computer until Monday morning, and you can't influence him (badly) until then. So there!

Cindy said...

Ok..I will go real slow for you.
you said you talk to Russ
he said it was his PLEASURE
I said. "quit PLEASURING RUSS in response to Karen saying your are BURNING UP THE PHONE LINES.

guess you have to live in my brain.

See you soon. (I'm so excited I could laugh at you peeing your pants or passing some liquid through your nose)

Karen, I am home cooking ALL MEAT FILLED dishes for Eric Birthday party tomorrow since Jer is busy with HER son and she can't make it...

Jer said...

Thanks, Cin. Sometimes I'm a little slow.

David said...

Sometimes?

Heh, I think you are a tad bit distracted about Rob & Beata coming home. With good reason!

Jer said...

Hey, DF. I'll pick them up in a little over 17 hours...it's getting close. Then no more excuses for my ignorance. :)
