Dear Ashley

I often wonder what kind of a person you are? Are you serious? Are you a good student? Can you look at yourself and know that you are a pretty girl? Do you love pets? What is your favorite holiday?
I am a pretty serious person, I get too worked up and easily sad. Although, I do have a bad/funny sense of humor. I laugh when others might not. When people fall down or for example today at a restaurant a waitress dropped a plate of food. I just can't help myself. I have noticed that Tyler laughs at stuff just like me. My family pretty much knows that is just how I am. I am not always so sure that I am a pretty girl. It varies from day to day. I don't get into getting nails done or my hair done or do I wear make up. I love pets. We are just plain crazy. My favorite animal is my dog Ann. I also just love my bunnies. I am not so sure what is my favorite holiday anymore. I admit that I miss the holidays when I had my whole family around. I am a caregiver for the elderly. I take care of a 98 year old couple on a live in basis. It's the best job, but sometimes makes me feel like I am a chicken with my head cut off. It's similar to taking care of two two year old's, but I have to fight for control. I have to let them do what they can and always be there to pick them up when they need it.
I like to collect dolls, but only had a few, because I wouldn't buy them for myself. However, when I found a doll shop... I decided that if I want something, I can't wait for others to buy them. So, I have bought a couple cute dolls and my husband buys them furniture. I even went to the goodwill to buy them some clothes. One of the dolls sits by the fish tank. I like to stand him up to scare my husband. I hope your doing well. I miss you.
