Trella Hemmerly – 1935-01-12

Up at 10:00 AM meant to get up earlier. Daddy mother and I went to Ware Roberts’ farm where daddy has an acre rented for dow use and Lydia lives. I sure do get moody. Mr. Roberts showed us his home. Electric light and running water – all conveniences. Got tunic pattern from Mrs. Fred Smith. Cut it out.
Daddy, Mary and I went to the Marion a western “I was thrilled to my toes.” Fun once but not for a steady diet thanks.

Took my suitcase to work with me. Wally went uptown with me at noon. Ate at Kresge’s. Found a skirt pattern I liked but not in my size. So after school Wally went to another store, got it and brought it down.
Bought mother a lingerie reel from Chris Summers. Winds up automatically. 29¢
Got 5:30 PM bus. Daddy met me. I took him to church. He’s a trustee now. Cut out my skirt. – popcorn

Wally met me this noon and we went to Morehouse.
Got lovely silk peacock blue for a 57¢ a yard. Snatched a hamburger and got to work in time.
I made some mistakes on Mater for eight last week and JL bald bill out about them so we had a pretty bad day. Only Mr. Miller came in and said it was the system not me.
Started a steaming on my face for blacks. All but it does some good. Wally callled – sweet.

Up at 10 and to church. Communion service. After dinner went after BB.
On our way taking Walt’s dirty clothes saw Mrs. Haldeman went out to Rosinas. BB and I had quite a talk about our to-bes. I said not.

Mother had brains and eggs for supper for us. Then to BY after discussing socialism. Psychology and love.

Dale Gorman talked on what we know about God.

Stopped at Isaly’s. Told Mary about some shows and so to bed.

Up at 6:00 AM to meet B. Shelton. Late because he went after Mr. Nichols. Remembered I forgot my glasses while waiting my eyes hurt some this evening.
The same old grind entering freight bills checking rates writing up claims filing M.J. bills.
Tired this evening. Wall will be down after while. Guess I’ll sleep until 8:00.
Alarm woke me at 8:00. Had a sane evening with Wally. Sweet. 10:30 PM

Have to work tomorrow and so I didn’t go home tonight.
Wally is coming down in about 1/2 hour. Helen Hecht came down this morning for some milk for a kitten. When I took it up she gave me some pills for menstrual – “Seeqit” But I didn’t need and today quit (sic) surprising.
Express bills sure are a mess. Figured value charges wrong & what a time to correct them. Wally down. Woe is me. He isn’t good for me.
