This is the email my mother just sent me in reference to how long it's been since I've communicated with the world:
Dear Sadie, I am really hoping the kidnapping is not too hard on you. Do you recognize any of the kidnappers? Did they get Spencer too, or just you? I hope they release you soon. Tell them you must be home by the thirteenth of Nov., ransom money or no. Tell them we have spent all our money and have none to give them. Should you escape before then, please give me an update.
Right. Point taken. I guess it's time to resurface . . . ?
