January 5, 2016 – Day one almost complete – yahoo!

Today was day 1 of my getting healthier.  Woke up full of energy and excitement.  Weird as that may sound I was really curious what I would feel like when I woke up this morning after taking my first bunch of meds last night.   I am wondering if it was doubling the magnesium? I had to adjust my schedule today after talking with the pharmacist.

But I have hope that things will be different and sooner than later. Probably having an experience of placebo effect.  Am sure if it is I will see the other side pretty quickly.

Nothing profound in my thinking this evening. I started the above and then thought of something and started searching Ancestry.com for some info and then just now remembered what I had been doing. Oh dear..

So let’s just look at Charles Diary and see if anything exciting has happened on the farm.  I know they have a social life I could only dream of.

Charles O’Connor’s diary – Sept 1909  He talks about the walnuts and those trees are still there.  Appears Madeline could teach with out a high school diploma.

Sept 1 – Miss Young came here to board. Jim’s daughter and George Charltons niece. Madeline is delighted and she needs a good companion.
Sept 3 – Emily and I go to Gan. Lovely baby.
Sept 28 – Ruben Free buys 8 cows. 88.00.
Sept 29 – Fergus here. Brought Ellen home..
Sept 30 – Very wet. In house all day.

Missed a few pages. Madeline had applied for Sand Bay school and Inspector Johnson comes from Athens to tell her she has it. When she goes Mr McNeeley arrives with his daughter who is in tears as she does not want to hurt Madeline as they were friendly in High school and is not a bigot. The trustees Mr Johnson, Chas Mac and Mr Blair arrive and send McNeely home in a hurry.
