First I am so sad because I lost my watch. I lost it about two weeks
ago and I have gone through everything in the apartment like ten times
and through all my stuff like thirty times and when we bike I look on
the road for it, but I finally decided it's just gone now. I am really
sad. I wore it every day for the past year or so and it just
disappeared. So I have to get a new one but I am way bummed.
Also, the weather has been so weird! It snowed last week and then this
week has been in the high fifties/sixties and it has been beautiful!
All I need is a light jacket.

service and we might be able to go every week! It was SO FUN! It was

really have a special place in my heart for people with special needs.
They make me so happy.
We still haven't gotten our calls yet but I am 100% sure we are
staying here together. It will be good I think. I am excited for this
I love you. Sorry this email is short I can't think of anything else to write.
LOVE, RAINES SHIMAI
PS yes I got the package! Thanks for the meds and candy! I love you!
