28 June 1991

Sunday (9) I went to both services at church. In between the two services I went to the beach and got a little burn.

I left Monday morning for Antigua and arrived in Pittsburgh on time at 10 pm. I found out in North Carolina that rental cars are more expensive than I thought.

Tuesday I got my haircut correctly. I also attended David’s graduation.

Wednesday I went out to dinner with Pete, Brenda, Ken, and Ann Marie. I ate shark.

Thursday I went to Niagra Falls with Pete and his family. It was pretty good but too typically family like. 

On Friday (14) I came back from the condo and saw Daddy, Trudy, and Ann. I stayed at the hotel with Trudy that night.

Saturday was the party. I think that was also the day I want to see the dentist.

On Father’s Day Trudy, David, Randy and Dad went to see the Cleveland Indians play baseball. I did some more shopping. Brenda didn’t want Pete to go to the game because she said the family should be together.

On Monday I went back with Dad. It worked out better that way because Ann Marie was picking up Diane from Pete’s on Friday and Jayne was coming back from Scranton. I went over to Joe’s that night.

Tuesday I went to the mall with Joe. We also saw Judy, Barb, and Matthew. Then we headed off to find Adam.

Adam did not take Wednesday off. So Joe and I went to Knobel’s. Jackie agreed to go to Jitterbugs but we ended up at Flaherty’s again.

Thursday I invited everyone over to my place. We ended up going to a bazaar, the Maltby one. I was up late again.

On Friday (21) Jane picked me up at my house at 6:30. We went for breakfast and then went to Pete’s house. I drove back with Ann Marie to Erie.

Saturday we went to see “City Slickers.” It was pretty disappointing. Afterwards we stopped at Dairy Queen.

Sunday was a day to finish recording music to take back with me. I didn’t finish it all. On the way back from the mall Ann Marie and I picked up some videos. She made pork chops just for me that night.

Monday I picked up my rental car. It was much cheaper to rent a car to Pittsburgh. I completed my packing for my trip back. I went to the grocery store but didn’t have enough money for everything I wanted.

I left very early Tuesday (25) with tears in my eyes. I made it to Pittsburgh with time to spare. I was in North Carolina for seven hours. If I had money I could have seen Raleigh. 

I left early from Antigua Tuesday after arriving late the night before. I came back with a roommate. I met Leif Skille in San Juan. I tested him out before agreeing to share the apartment with him.

On Thursday I finished signing report cards. Mr. James graded all my exams and determined my year-end averages. I was a little upset at his comment on my students’ performances. He nastily asked why all the 3rd and 4th form grades were so low.

Friday today was the last day of school. I was bored most of the time. All the lack of sleep caught up with me. It feels good to have this year behind me. I hope you have a much better year come September.
