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, mis-spellings and all, but corrected in parentheses. More posts of Dear Diary can be found by using catagories, or search box. Hope you enjoy reading my childhood diary! 🙂

I also, get out my coffee cup, and put it under the spout.

I put in a little coffee pod, where it goes in the machine.

The next morning, all is ready for me to turn the coffeemaker on,

pull the handle, and out comes the hot coffee in less than a minute,

filling the cup just right. 🙂
