Dear Diary – March 23 – April 1, 1961

For those who haven’t seen my Dear Diary posts before, a little explanation. This is my actual diary I wrote in for a full year, when I was 10 years old. I wrote every day, sometimes a lot, sometimes a little, sometimes funny, sometimes boring, but it was all recorded. Names of relatives are only first initials with relationship in parentheses. I’ve typed the entries just as I wrote them, misspellings and all, but corrected in parentheses. More posts of Dear Diary can be found by using categories, or search box. Hope you enjoy reading my childhood diary! 🙂

    • Thanks, Emily!
      Let’s see…I wish I had written down what it was that I was always playing at back then. I didn’t yet have a Barbie doll (not until I was eleven, I think) so us kids just had to do a lot of outside things. Probably riding my bike, getting with neighborhood kids playing king of the mountain, piggie wants a signal, annie over, jumprope, jacks, climbing trees, and sometimes some board games. We kept busy, that’s for sure! 🙂
