Got Up and Managed

Monday 9/16/1957
[The last letter before I was born, later in the month]

My Dearest:

Just a note – no news but we’ll let you know how things are going. We got and managed even Bible Reading this a.m. but not without scolding and quarrelling before we were ready. I’ll feel we are getting somewhere when we get going without all that.

Mother did the washing and I did some ironing this morning and got Jimmy off on the bus. Same seat as always.

Danny woke up and dashed down for records. Lay down on the sofa with me and cried or fussed because they were gone [the portable record player went back and forth with Dad]. Woke up this morn and said,
“Ki Yi Yippie” [From a record, Songs of the West, a family favorite] in Chicago.
“Bow Wow” [the dog? a record of dogs barking?] in Chicago.
Everything worthwhile in Chicago.

Missed the carrier. Got a notice from Blue Cross of increase in rates effective next month.

We are wondering how you are making out – when Hebrew class [now Dad is teaching Greek and Hebrew] is, etc. Be good to see you again this week end – although I feel bad about you traveling so much.

All my love,
Nellie
