Reply received .. . . .

I received a reply from my second letter. It’s not what I had hoped for, but at least it’s a reply.  She acknowledged that she is my mother, but doesn’t want me to contact her anymore. She also stated that she doesn’t want her family to know about it.

2nd letter sent . .. .. ..

Finally sent another (2nd) letter to my birth mother. Now it’s the waiting that’s going to kill me. I hope to get some reply from it.

Getting the house ready to sell . . .

255 S Wulff small… but not immediately.  We have to update the kitchen, stain some wood, a little paint here and there.  But the kitchen is the big one!  I don’t know what it’s going to cost me (new cabinets, new countertop, new sink, new floor), but it’s going to be a lot.  ■  Emailed a bit with my new 1st cousin. She would be on my father’s side of the equation.  I think I’ve got it nailed down to one of two people.  One passed away in 2001, but the other is alive.  ■  Holly’s hosting a bridal shower for our nephew’s wife-to-be.  I think he’s a nephew, but this whole uncle, aunt, nephew, cousin thing is somewhat confusing to me.  ■  Finished a drawing today.  Two more to do.  ■
