Letter 4 - 'Twas the Email Before Christmas

[Note from Mom: I’m not sure whether you'd call it a premonition or not, but I had a feeling something would go wrong this week. After all, we had another Christmas call to set up. Technically, you might call it déjà vu. Just like last year, we were at the Heimuli family Christmas party at Uncle Hema's (yep, Dad, Harry & Aunty Nei were there again, too) when the email-before-Christmas got messed up...again. If you’re new to the blog, or just need a reminder and a good chuckle, go ahead and click on this link. Though some things are different, one thing's still the same -- I love being a missionary mom, even if it's only for 4 more weeks.]

Hey mom,
So my email`s not working and I`m using my companion`s email for a minute. I had a great week! What`s going on with Christmas? Are we skyping? Are you calling? Email me asap.
Love you!

Yes Ichikawa shimais. I can`t use my email. Thanks for resending. The skype should work. If you are all at Hema`s house and use his internet it will work. I only have 40 minutes. I will use your skype account and you guys use hema`s skype account or something. Is that okay? My number is 080-____-____ do you know how to do the whole international dial thing? I think you would dial 088-81-80-____-____. Can we do Skype at 11 am, Dec 26th my time? Which is 7 pm your time on Dec 25th Christmas?

I just sent 2 emails to ichikawas email address. Did you not get them? One was my weekly letter. The other was about hearing your Christmas song playing on FM100 today. Yes we can call you at that day/time. Love you.

She is so pretty! Is your email messed up because I registered you for Institute and had to do it on LDS.org? So your new login is ______ and your password is ______. Try that. Sorry. 

[And that was it. Ugh. Can't wait to Skype on Christmas night! J]
