19 March 2018 (Monday, Fond du Lac, WI)

On the last few days in 1937:
14 March (Sunday)
Went to Sunday School. On the way to Grandma’s we turned off a road to eat lunch on and got lost. Had fun over there. Played baseball.
15 March
Confirmation Class. My finger hurts so I only practiced a little. Read. Did school work. Went to bed early — a miracle.
16 March
Had to write some stuff in civics. Finished my cutting in sewing. Went to library — got “Prairie Child” & “Praise Mother”. Commercial Club Dinner.
17 March
General Assembly. Ben Snowden got heck for booing. He’s in my class. That’s the second tone in two months thats no allowed to go to assembly any more.
18 March (Thursday)
Bob came up ‘cause  Mom went to choir practice. Did some school work. Played games. Bob won in checkers.
(anniversary of starting this thing)
19 March:
I wanted to go to “Pigskin Parade” but Hebert’s wanted to see “The Big Broadcaste”.[sic] It wasn’t very good. (Test in algebra — oh — awful)

Very busy here. There was more stuff to get out of Mom and Dad's house than I figured and I've been working steadily every day since arriving last Wednesday evening. I have the bulk of it done but now the furniture has to go and that requires a truck and some more muscle. We took about 30 big trash bags to the dump today along with another pile of cardboard and junk. I've probably made 8 trips to the Goodwill, too. 

I haven't been sad about any of this, really. One night I awoke and started in on an anxiety attack (or whatever) with the thought that I was literally dumping stuff out of my Mom's house, but I got it under control relatively quickly. Still off trazodone. Emotions are a bit near the surface but otherwise not much different.

13 March 2018 (Tuesday)

On this day in 1937 (Saturday):
Gee, have I been lazy today. Went with Dad delivering and so on. Read and listened to radio at nite -- good plays.
Probably won't post tomorrow, flying to Wisconsin.

12 March 2018 (Monday)

On this day in 1937 (Friday):
Guess what -- we went to the basket ball game -- score - Wash 34 W.S.C. 36. I was disappointed. Saw Cain, Haines. Gee Wagner's swell. 
I was confused at the "W.S.C." -- whether she meant USC or WSU (Washington State), but I discovered that WSU used to be called Washington State College, not University.

11 March 2018 (Sunday)

On this day in 1937 (Thursday):
Miss Oakley's down on a guy named Jimmy (Red) with no reason at all. He's nice. Read Huckleberry Finn and did schoolwork. 
I read that first sentence so, so wrong.

10 March 2018 (Saturday)

On the last two days in 1937 (Tuesday and Wednesday):
Mom went to church to hear [Doc.] Pullman speak. His name some how reminds me of Wash. State College -- Did school work.
Forgot to hear One Man's Family. Boy, did I do school work. Mostly sewing -- we've got to hand our unit in Friday. I'm almost done now. 
Washington State is located in Pullman, WA.

Finished painting the kitchen today. Started and finished actually, although prep work done in the last day or so.

7 March 2018 (Wednesday)

On this day in 1937 (Sunday):
I can hardly believe it. I guess I wasn't very good in S.S. It's a triple tie for the lead now. Wash - U.S.C. - Ore - got to play it out.
