One minute I’m on a Pedestal with my nose in the air, the next wanting to crawl home incognito

March 27, 1964, Friday. Glad to get home. Well I’m sick again.

Didn’t sleep all night. Woke up sick and in a daze. Had to fix breakfast. Couldn’t eat. Wanted to go home, but didn’t think I could drive. I looked real ugly, didn’t even bother to get dressed up. Wore my hair set. Took last pictures before we left. My car wouldn’t start. I was scared we would be stuck there. Finally about 1:00 we got started. Marilyn’s battery went dead. We had to push her. I drove so fast on the Freeway I lost her. Her car broke down. Think I blew my muffler. Got lost, but finally made it home. It was 4:00 and I was too sick to bring in all my luggage. Mom wanted to leave in the morning and go back up to Crestline with the whole family for Easter. I told her I’d never go back up there again. Was sick all night.
