You're still keeping your big teddy bear.
You're very good at looking after your belongings :)

How is your bronchitis?
I pray that you're feeling much better today.
Please take care.

I had bronchitis this summer...I'm hoping not to get it anytime again soon...that was the first time I'd had it and had a brutal time recovering from was right smack in the middle of packing our house for the move and taking a vacation down to the states. I was commenting to Corry that I didn't know what was worse...the breathing test or the airplane ride a week later while I was still suffering the after affects of bronchitis which had not completely cleared up.

Audrey, I'm not always terrific at taking care of my belongings, but this teddy bear was huge, so we were more gentle with it. I'm now glad I did, as my uncle who gave it to me passed away last year, so it's a special reminder of who he was to me...right now it's still at my parents house, as we've moved a fair amount in the last four years, but once we are settled and can make room, I'm hoping to bring it here!
