We just finished dishes & I’m sitting out if front of Dot’s writing this. We are going up to the Armo tonite. Looks like rain but we are crazy enough to try it! ha. Dot really had a nice dinner & I really filled up! Hope “Butch” liked it! ha. We had meat loaf & all the trimmings. Right after we ate we took the 2 last pictures on the roll. Bob took them right over to Geo. & we can get them Thurs.
Honey, I went to bed at quarter to 11 last nite & slept til 10:00 this morning! Boy – I sure felt good! I came over to Dot’s after 11 o’clock Mass this morning & ate breakfast. Then Dot, the kids & I sat until almost 3 o’clock thinking up names for the baby. We had so much fun! You should have heard some of the funny names! We laughed so hard. We thought of quite a few nice names for girls but I’ll write you them later, honey. Did you think of any?
I lit my gas heater today cause Rose & Dan were at the house cleaning & needed hot water. He even cleaned the living room wall paper himself today. I think Mom will paper the bathroom & kitchen. He said he would paint everything himself & refinish the floors. He doesn’t want to ask Mom to do anything. They sure are nice about it & can’t wait to move in. He sure likes to work around the house & even helps her with the house-work cause she works too. I called Mom & she said she would come up tomorrow or Tues. & see what has to be done.
Mom finally got an ice-box! She said it’s a nice big box – A Grunow, or something like that. It only cost $135.00. I think Mom must have got there first cause it was a real buy. I’ll get my box some time this wk, as soon as Mom can get the movers. She was so glad she got a box. She ran all over looking for one & was always too late. I’m glad too cause – while I never would say anything I really need to eat breakfast now. I get so hungry just having a cup of coffee. Then too, I need milk & fruit now. Mom was always trying to buy one & I know she worried about it a lot since I’m pregnant. I’m going to start getting up a little earlier & eating breakfast now.
Honey, Dot put last Sunday’s Brown sheet & “Right Around Home” away for you so I’m sending it at last. She wasn’t home yesterday when I looked for it but gave it to me today. I’ll send this Sunday’s tomorrow or Tuesday.
When I came home from Dot’s at 3 o’clock today I washed. There was plenty of hot water in the tank. I guess Mr. E. finally fixed it but I still don’t know what he did. I keep forgetting to ask Mom. Darling, I want to get an early start to the show so I can go by O’Neill’s & pay my electric bill & also pay Mrs. Peterson for the ‘spray for Joe Jr. It was $5.
Guess I’ll have to leave you for now but I’ll be thinking of my sailor every minute! I love you so much, Frank, & pray you will always love me! I am the luckiest girl in the wold to have a husband like you & I soon will have your baby! It’s too good to be true & I sure don’t deserve it! Take care of yourself, darling & God be with you always! Love & Kisses, Jean & Butch.
That’s too bad about all rates being frozen for 6 months. I’m so sorry, honey. But don’t worry about it. I hope you are out of it soon!
