75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - June 30, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
June 30, 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.

Here is the daily entry for Friday, June 30:

Did up usual work. Took Pete over on 80 to finish plowing beans. Home & washed and set my hair, did dishes and separator, read awhile, got dinner. Had fruit salad from ice box. Got ready to come to Dr. in pm. He was at the hospital when we got there so we rode around, watched them play tennis. When we did see Dr. he said I'd better go up on the hill so we went to Penny's & got a night gown and came down here.
Pete went home & chores & came back here until 9:00. He stayed at Clayburg's all nite. I didn't hardly sleep all nite. Felt good but was so restless.

My comments:

An unusual day, for sure… only just beginning… Note that she is writing in the hospital.

Certainly an interesting entry! ;-)

"Had fruit salad from ice box." 

Families are Forever!  ;-)
