Hello Darling –
Well, here’s your girl who can’t make up her mind again, – still in as much of a mess as ever!
All I did at Mass this morning was think about what I should do & pray that I would do what is best. I wish I knew when Helen is planning on coming up here – then I could go ahead & get reservations – then if I can’t go – I can always cancel them. Vic said I was crazy to pass up the opportunity of going with that lady – & I guess I am. But I kinda planned on going back with Helen & George in the car – & visit Aunt Effie & Uncle Jess for a few days. But if they wait too long, I think I’ll just go on down there on the train (about a week before they come up) & then ride back with them. I’ll have that much over with anyway. Dot says she thinks it would be better if I bought the things I need for the Baby before I come out there & fix the basket up too. In case I don’t have much time when I come back. Of course this is all if I come out there. It’s all such a mess. I may decide to stick it out here anyway. But I’m so crazy – I may even end up by coming out with that lady this Thursday. I’m so sorry I have to get you all worked up over it, honey. Then if I don’t come at all you may really feel bad. Maybe you won’t even be able to get a Unit – what do you think?
Well, anyway, I’m going down-town tomorrow & stop in the Santa Fe office & find out just about when I could expect to get a reservation. As I said before, if I tho’t this darn war would be over in 6 months – I wouldn’t even worry about coming out – but I’m afraid it won’t be over that soon. Guess if I quit talking about it – maybe I’ll make up my mind whether I should or shouldn’t. Don’t worry about it, honey. I’m sure everything will work out for the best.
We didn’t do anything last nite, but read the papers. I came home at 11 oclock. The kids are in the country today & Vic is painting the bathroom. Their house sure looks nice now. Boy, our house could sure stand some paint & wall paper – but we can always do that when you come home. Maybe we’ll go to the show tonite if Aunt Ruth doesn’t come out.
By the way I saw “Poppy” Rossfeld yesterday & he said to tell you that you won’t have anything on him when you come home cause he has a Navy Pea coat – sweater – cap & gloves now! He said he’d looked like a regular “old-salt” this winter all dressed up in Eddie’s clothes. Eddie told him he better not try to wear his uniform, tho, the cops might run him in! ha.
This is really a lonesome Sunday. It’s so pretty out 0 & nice & cool. I wonder what you are doing, honey? I’m so lonesome for you, I could die!
Well, I guess I’ll walk back over to Dot’s now & help her with supper. Please take good care of yourself, darling & God be with you, always! I love you so much, sweetheart & pray every day you love me as much! Please hurry home to us & then we won’t have to worry about me coming out there!
All our love & kisses,
Jean & Butch.
