I found my childhood diary
My mom and dad sent me a few items they felt I may want to keep and one was my childhood diary!! You know, the one with the lock that all of us girls thought NO ONE could ever break in order to read our deepest, darkest secrets :) Yes, I'm sure my brother and his friends were able to flip that puppy open and read as much as they wanted as kids. As a matter of fact, I know they did. Most days I spend being tortured by my brother and his friends and most things they teased me about came from my diary.
Reading it now brings back so many memories. I thought my world was going to end when I was in elementary school because I couldn't get one boy to like me or my mom wouldn't buy me a swatch watch like my best friend. Oh here's an entry you will love....it's called, "The Bird Killer."

My best friend Leni LOVES birds, so does her mom. She has a beautiful, yellow parakeet that she puts on her shoulder and walks around the house with. If she really wants to show off, she would vacuums her room with the yellow parakeet on her shoulder....all the kids on the block think thats so cool.
Leni and her family are going camping, they want me to watch the birds....the birds actually freak me out. She's my bestie, so I have to do it...ycuky!

Dear Diary, I
I walked into to Leni's house and her yellow parakeet is dead! Dead! I didn't do anything, I swear diary!! My mom says it just happens sometimes. What will I tell Leni?

Leni came home today and called me a bird killer!! The entire school will think I'm a bird killer diary, how horrible!! I hope Steve Eide doesn't. Maybe he will still ask me out.
More to come soon........
