Hi Diana, It's me Catharine. I am so stupid. I was looking at another email when I was signing up.

I telling you Diana, I am not the lightest light bulb in the box. I think you have your work cut out with me. I am not thinking at all. The pain and sadness is way too much for me. All day long I think about what has happened. any way. I will keep in touch with you.

I am sorry for my mistake. We will talk soon. bye
