How are you? I was hoping to start up writing to you, I don't know why we stopped. How has your life been? I hope Sonja and her money spending habits haven't gotten you down in the dumps. Why do you let her walk all over you? You have all the right to not pay for her spending! Is the dress shop open? The last few times I went by it looked closed. Did you do anything special for the holidays? It was sad not to have a New Year's ball this year.
