Dear Mr. Nielson,
Hi darling!  How is everything at the ranch?
Everything is fine here. Another overcast day today.  
I dropped the children off at the dentist today.
SEVEN cavities between them.  Oh boy.
Despite our good brushing/flossing habits it looks
like we have some major work to be done. 
I took the children back to school after the dentist and they were
really mad at me.  They thought I'd just bring them home for the rest of the day.
I think I figured out a way to fall asleep without you. 
I practice yoga right before bed and after I am so tired and I fall fast asleep.
Works great.  I also sleep with your Bear Grylls knife next to my pillow for
extra protection. 
Oh, also, I found the journal I wrote you in 2006.  Remember that?
Every day for 365 days I wrote a paragraph of why I loved you that day.
Sometimes what I write is really funny, and sometimes its embarrassing, sometimes
its so sweet I end up crying.
You are so wonderful to me and I adore your guts.
I love you and miss you mucho!

Hey Utah!!  The annual 'Chalk the Block
at the Riverwoods in Provo is coming up!
Last year my family got to participate- we drew our family with our theme.
This year we will be there again- we are still considering what to draw...
we are not very good at chalk drawing,
in fact last year everyone in my family
 pretty much gave up and I finished it by myself.
Come see the amazing real artists!
