Writing a letter to your confirmation candidate

It seems that one of the biggest events in confirmation preparation in this country is the letters of support to be given to the confirmation candidates during their mandatory retreats.

I have three such letters saved on this blog:

I am hearing...
the fan on my computer, which is probably about to go out, which really ticks me off because I just up two new fans in this computer.

In the kitchen...
Chili cheese potatoes tonight.

I am wearing...
my workout clothes. I got up this morning, put in my FIRM video and went at it for 3t minutes. Then I put in an old Jazzercise video to work my biceps  and triceps more. I feel great.

I am going...
One of my favorite things...
