March 22, 2011

My love,
   I don't know much more about you since I last wrote. The only new information I have is that you won't be born in 2011. I'd be lying if I said this didn't make me a little sad. I'm not a superstitious person, but this whole Mayan 2012/end of the world thing gives me the slightest pause. This probably seems silly and morbid to you now, but that's my confesion.
   Anyway, things have gotten pretty chaotic in the world lately. Most of Wisconsin workers are on strike and/or protesting thanks to the governor trying to bust up unions, New Zealand and Japan had massive earthquakes causing a debilitating tsunami in Japan, and we're staging air strikes against Libya. Oh, also, multiple nuclear reactors are on the verge of melt down. However, the Japanese are very impressive in their strength and resilience.
   Libya, on the other hand scares the bejeezus out of me. I understand that the Libyan people are oppressed and should be liberated, but we're currently waging two other wars that we're not getting out of any time soon, and I don't want an open-ended engagement in yet another middle eastern country to come out of this. I hope I'm wrong.
   On a more local note, your father and I have to have a tree removed tomorrow. The previous owners planted it too close to the fence and our house. Eleven-hundred dollars later, both structures should be safe. We're going to your Uncle David's birthday party (#43, I think...) and then later to see our friends, Sabrina and Justin this weekend. I hope you know them; they're wonderful people. Well, I'm going to sign off for now and go work on the family genealogy for your Aunt Sarah.
   How funny; I'm interacting with my past, present and future in one night. :)
