Follow Samantha as she prepares for the family reunion. As she hunts for artifacts for the family display, she finds this old letter:

Part I: Journeys (Chapter 37)


July 10, 1983– Nicole today!

Had to do extra shopping today, bought extra chicken breasts, fresh tomatoes, and new potatoes. Samantha and Nicole finally here, direct from Disney World. (Fla.). S. terribly sunburned, N. black as coal. Little Black Chicken, ha, ha. S. lost weight, much too thin now. Feast or Famine with that girl. N. called me Great Nana. Told her Nana good enuff. S. Nitpicks at her constantly. I told her

I’m glad you’re not MY mother.

I meant it, too.

Took the girls to Catholic Daughters potluck. The old ladies fussed over N., said she was a cute thing. Spoiled, spoiled.

Good food today, ate like a pig.

Lasagna (Hazel Leedom), Green Bean Casserole (Julie Casey), Turkey Meatloaf (Marguerite Whitlock), Orange Jello with Marshmellows and coconut (Doris Farlow), White Cake w/ Peanut Butter Frosting (Colleen Harrison), Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies (Mary Lou Keenan). I brought homemade bread, none left to take home.

Wore my green plaid dress today, too tight around bosom. After lunch, tight everywhere.

Weight Today = 140 lbs. Too fat, what was I thinking.

Gluttony a Mortal Sin.

Diet tomorrow.
