No school. Put up my hair in the morning. Went over town with Frankie. Wore Betty’s blue suit + went to the Mansonite Temple with Frankie. Met Nick Holland over there. He asked me to dance, but I said no. He to good of a dancer for me. Frankie got mad a him + went home without even saying goodbye. Boy do I feel sorry for Dick.

Tuesday 6 Feb 1945
Went to school. Went to vollyball after school. I hurt the tips of my fingers + so I put iodia on them + then put a banage on them. I kept it on for 2 hr. And it started burning. Then I took it off and they were realy burnt. Went to bed at 10:00 didn’t get to sleep until 2:00 in the morning. Boy did I go through torcher mom put up my hair.
So… Iodine? I think that’s what the word means. I thought iodine had been used for cuts, not for sore fingers. Unless of course she meant she had cut them and that’s why they are sore. Nonetheless, I chuckled at the part where she was put through torture in having her mom put up her hair. I’ll bet she stayed away from iodine for a while!
I am also noticing that Grandma seems to forget some days to put in a diary entry. It makes me wonder if this was a kind of New Years resolution that she’s falling off from.
