jonathan.jpg It was suggested to me that this be a "pining entry" because my Jonathan is in Washington. (Get it?) I miss him more than anything in the world. Good news? Only one more full day before he's home. Bad news? One more WHOLE day before he's home. Thursday seems very far away sometimes. But he's doing well. People like him; they know he's talented. If they'd asked me first I would have told them so he wouldn't have to go away so far. Besides, Eastern Washington is boring. Like drying paint, or sitting in traffic, folding towels (folding anything actually), doing math, talking about math... anyway. My Ya-Yas are rallying to my rescue, perking me up when I feel blue and Jon-less.

Read on only if you're Jon.

I loooooooooooove you! Kissy kissy kissy! Smushy face! I wuuuuuuuuv you. Awwwwwwwwww, my l'il...

Hey! Some of you are NOT Jon and should not, therefore, be reading this. But Jonathan, honeybuns, I miss you. Hope you like your cards.
