April 15: Read an article about the tofu business, and thinking it might be ideal as a venture for Joe and me.
April 16: The Jacksons are getting married on Wednesday. (Joe said, "To whom?")
April 18: Peggy and Lisa gave a talk on breastfeeding at the CEA film night this evening. Joey and I were supposed to be the "model" nursing couple, sitting in front of the room to shoe the audience how it's done. Joey was not what you'd call cooperative—he bit me, turned away, and cried!
April 19: My birthday, and I planned a nice celebration. Left the girls with Patty at her house and met Tian at Nora's house at 4:30. We drank a hot wine punch, ate dinner, and laughed and laughed. We also cried a little—when Nora read aloud a letter I had written her, listing the things I'd miss when she moved away. Nora gave us lovely birthday presents: a poncho for Tian and a painted tray for me, both from Mexico. Tian and I gave each other "appropriate handmade birthday cards." We all had lots of fun.
April 20: Joe and I are excited about the possibility of going into the tofu manufacturing business. I have great enthusiasm for the product!
April 22: Attended a party this afternoon for the Jacksons, who will be moving at the end of the month. At first I felt slightly out of place with all that counterculture, but a wide variety of people came, and we all had fun.
April 24: Started work on cleaning our bedroom. What a lousy housekeeper I am.
April 25: Jill, making believe she is Nora: "Dr. Nora will fix your foot as soon as she goes to the potty."
