The Diary of Mrs. X: Installment 3

It's time for the next installment from Mrs. X's diary. I love all the little household things she mentions. Some worries and headaches never really change!

Sunday, January 28, 1945
C. worked in yard all day. I worked in house till 2 & then in veg. gardens till late. Saved more spinach, lettuce

Monday, January 29, 1945
Family wash.
Drain clogged up just as I finished.

Wednesday, January 31, 1945
Drizzled all day. Spoiled dry January record. Painted hand lotion bottle for Mary.
Took things to Nichols’.
Paid auto club for licenses.
G. S. meeting – Valentine’s.

Thursday, February 1, 1945
Cut spinach. [? Looks like Spanish, but that doesn’t make sense…]
Worked on G. S. finance records.
To Cheryl’s Brownie meeting.
Worked late on G. S. reports.
C. late – 1 a.m.


These are a lot of little entries but they say quite a bit! Working in their vegetable garden, troubles with the plumbing - again, paying for auto club licenses, and G.S. (meaning Girl Scouts) meetings. I think the painting of the hand lotion bottle is quite interesting too!
(C. refers to her husband Connie.)

Mrs. X stays quite busy with Girl Scouts as we'll see in later installments!
