Back in the day, the journals I used had these dated pages and as days and days of blank pages started outnumbering the ones with writing, I got discouraged and would quit. This nifty blog lets me back-date the entries. So, sure it says the blog entry was written in October but I probably wrote it in January. So, just keep that in mind as you read.
As you will probably read in a future entry dated in the past (follow that? Or maybe you already read it since it is an earlier date written "before" this one?) I went to my hometown and went through my childhood keepsakes. My wonderful husband helped me box things and teased me about all the half-empty journals we packed.
