January 1984

My sister broke a coffee pot.

[2006: fighting was part of events of the day, but keep in mind that I did not break anything or dig my nails into anyone’s skin.]

I watched cartoons.

I wached Annie.

(add in 2006)  Not only did I watch “Annie,” I also taped it on a poor-quality audio cassette, and then replayed it, while acting out the orphanage scenes. I wasn’t a good singer, but that sure didn’t stop me from dreaming!

That was around the same time I had a fondness for tap dancing. (I could not really dance, and wasn’t all-that-serious about wanting lessons, but I’d turn my black patent leather dress shoes into tap shoes, throw a dismembered chalkboard on the floor, and do a little number to, “Puttin’ on the Ritz.” I don’t remember if I pulled out the shiny red baton for that one, or not, but I know the baton was a key part of my, “Milli Vanilli,” routines–perfect for searching high and low!)

I Got to take showerIn the new shower down stairs.

I cleaned my Basement.  My Dad hooked the pipes for the sink and shower.

It was my Dad’s birthday and so we had cake and ice cream.

I had Music.

I had Computers. I had Brownies.

I had gym.

I stayed home from school Because I was tired.

(7/2006) I am assuming I was actually sick, but not throwing up.  I don’t know what the status of the Atari 2600 was at that time, but I know for a fact that my parents, and especially my mom, would not have allowed me to stay home from school to pretend I was sick.  Plus I loved school.

I went to My Busha and JaJa’s to have subien-Christmas. And had Brownies.

I went to Mandey’s Birthday salabratoin.

Mellisa Moved from school. and I was sad.
