September 14, 1964, Monday. Went shopping for school clothes. Pearl had to go home.
Sad day, Pearl had to go home because school starts tomorrow. Granddaddy gave me $75.00 to get some clothes. I shopped until 7:00 and got seven blouses, two suits and a skirt. I had to come home to get some things… Daddy didn’t want me to go back to Nana’s apartment…but after a big fight I went back and got ready for school. I couldn’t sleep at all!! Just kept waiting for the alarm to go off. I thought about how wonderful it’s been being here. We had to wash our dishes in the sink, while the other one was making up. Cooking, watching TV in the bedroom, cutting out name tags for the Saffron Tea, getting dressed while playing the radio, eating what ever we wanted and coming home any time at all.
