75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Jan 2, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Jan 2, 1939

This entry is a post from the diary of my mother, twenty year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date. She kept a diary from 1932 as a freshman in high school until she left us, too early, in 1999.

Today begins 1939 - the year I was born, on July 1 - Bring it on! ;-)

Here is the daily entry for Monday, Jan 2:

[Noted as birthday of "Jean's Bob" - Jean Kupka Gunnar, her son Bob]

Up at 9:00. To town. Got groceries and took the cream in. Up home a minute. Didn't feel very good. Ate dinner & then I slept 'till 2:30. Pete fixed the medicine cabinet and made a lamp shelf. We painted the wash stand, shelf, woodbox & finished the 1st coat on the w.w. Pete cleaned the chicken house. Did dishes & swept. Ed Kult came while Pete was emptying the milk. Played checkers, bridge, and rummy until 1:00.

My comments: The rest seemed to energize her for the rest of the day.

There is that "w.w." reference, again… ??

Decided to share her "address book" - kinda' interesting, to me… some friends, some family. ;-)
She doesn't mention writing letters as much as she did before she married. ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
