I needed a non-digital picture the other day **gasp**. I know, I know. A baby picture of middle G. for her yearbook. I didn't go digital until the middle of 2004 so all of the kids baby pics are on film.
Hubby said he had one in a shoebox inside his closet. **gasp** A shoebox!
I went searching.
Turns out pictures aren't the only thing he keeps in this shoebox. He also keeps letters and cards and other memoribilia.
I found a typewritten letter from me. I couldn't stop myself from reading it.
I'm living three hours away from him. I'm working full-time but living at home; he is at college.
I talked about old friends. One who died suddenly at 29 but who I was still close with at the time of this letter. I pondered Christmas gifts for them. I asked about the weather. I relayed silly events at work and at home. Then I asked the question that stood out the most...
"Do you ever check your electronic mail? Your sister said she mailed you some from campus but she never heard back from you. I told her you probably didn't have time for that but said I would check with you. If you are checking your electronic mail, maybe I can could go to the campus with your sister and send you some. Let me know."
The kicker is that this letter was dated November 1994.
Sometimes it's shocking how much has changed since then.

Please leave some crack...um...I meant some comments.
