Organization of the paperwork.
One of the things I have let go is having any type of organization of the paperwork. I have fifteen to twenty manila envelopes with all types of papers that include your letters, articles I want to write about, letters from Abby, and general correspondence stuff.
For example when I received the last issue of PC Magazine, I needed to write to them and have them send me a refund for the unused portion of the subscription. Of course they provide an E-mail address for all the good it did me. I also need to write to INC. magazine since somehow when I ordered the gift subscriptions for Abby and you, I ended up getting two of each issue.
I could probably fill many pages just dealing with things you mentioned in your last four or five letters, however let that not be an excuse to not write me any more. I am going to work on a forward looking life plan. I certainly want you to be a part of my life along the way and am sorry I have dropped the ball as it were as far as our "personal" writing. I have tried not to send out whiny Poor Pete letters, but that has also led to no letters going out.
For all intents and purposes my future was radically altered with the death of my Dad. Now I am hoping Mom can hang on for a while to offer me some minor support and my monthly allowance because that is what makes a real difference in my ability to exist in here.
I am still working on the Access programming and getting smarter at it each day. For the last few weeks though I have been restricted to less than three hours a day of programming time and as such have not been very productive outwardly, but still have been using the time to tweak the internal side of the software so that it is a better product. It is such a powerful draw for my intellect, that many a night I toss and turn trying to get to sleep but all I can do is visualize the various screens and what new things I want to work on.
Maybe I should take down my wall of words and put up some of those scantily clad female pictures like most of the other inmates have to let me fall asleep with dreams of sugar plums instead of computer screens.
