Tue Jun 20 2000 19:51: I feel like the "man" of the house. I came home and started doing all kinds of little "fix-its" that needed to be done. I also helped cook and did laundry and cleaned and stuff but that's different. My mom is way cool. She made canned pickles today from cucumbers she grew in her garden. My brother is way cool too. He is coming home on Thursday, yay! I am excited to have bonding time with him. We bond. I'm not sure what over, but we definitely bond.
