One particularly poignant incident does stand out for me, though.
Sleeping arrangements for guests in our house consist of a futon in “my room” and a pull out sofa bed in the den/computer room. Each of the kids could have had their own space, but they chose to share the futon.
At home, (or as Ryan refers to it their “real” home) their normal bed time is between 8-9. So at 8:30, after a bubble bath in grandma’s huge soaking tub, they were ready to climb into bed. Since I have grandmother privileges, I extended bedtime to whatever time they actually fell asleep.
I’ve had that feeling myself a time or two.
I have created a page for Anna's Diary. It can be found under the Tab titled Anna's Diary.
I have posted all of the entries to date there, starting with January 1, 1929.
Here are the catch up entries from Anna’s diary:
