it's been a few months since meg has been back. jj, meg, chris, little jj and i have been going to protests and staying active. jj is really into protests now and is now seeing the light of how bad this war really is. roxanne is still working at American Bandstand as their hairdresser. little jj and i went to the show with meg while jj was at work. the producer let little jj go on the floor with me and meg since meg was a regular. it was cute! his first tv appearence and it looked like he enjoyed it. jj missed his first word which was weird, it was "dance". you would think that his first word would be "mama" or "dada". he's smart.

anyways, when we got home everybody was like "we saw you guys on American Bandstand!". they were all excited and it was fun!

Hey. It's been awhile since I have said something on here so let me think, whats been happening? Meg came to dinner last night and we were talking about her coming home, since its been a month and a half since she started living with Roxanne. Meg said, "I'll think about it" but sometimes I think she wont. Apparently she and Chris broke up. I dont know the whole story but I heard Shelley saying to Meg the other day, "I'm sorry for what happened between you and Chris. I was hoping it would work out," and Meg replied "Me too." I didnt mean to eavesdrop, but I was just there. I hope Roxanne can clarify this, or even Beth since they are talking to each other all the time. Meg doesnt talk to me very much. At dinner, she always talks to JJ, Beth or Roxanne. Sometimes even Jack, but me? She doesnt even notice that I'm there. Maybe I'm just imagining the whole thing. I'll give her a call later.

As for everyone else, they're fine. The protests have been going well apparently. I think John needs a diaper change.I'm babysitting him tonight :)

[ mood | dancing around & doing laundry ]

Alright, it's been a while since Meg finally came home from Berkeley with Chris. She started classes and she's enjoying them. She's also been handing out anti-war fliers on campus which is awesome....because I'm doing the same thing. She's still living with Luke and Rox, but she's thinking about moving back to the house soon. JJ has been working and speaking at some protests since he saw everything that happened in Vietnam first hand.

JJ III is starting to eat more solid foods and trying to stand up. JJ wants his son to know about what's right to fight for and what's not or something on that subject. Roxanne is rolling in the cash now. Her salon is getting more business since she started doing hair on Bandstand! Luke gave Chris a job at the record store (under the table pay) if he promised not to cause trouble like getting arrested. Chris agreed! Mr. Pryor is being a little nicer to Chris, but still doesn't approve how he talked Meg into runaway to California; but at least he has a job.

Classes for me are alright....Meg and I commute together I decided to go to City College for a 3 classes and take care of JJ III after classes. My mom has been watching him during the day and Mr. Pryor picks him up after he gets out of work and Patty and Mrs. Pryor take care of him 'til I get home. Meg goes from class to Bandstand to the house for dinner then back to Luke and Roxanne's place.

I have to go and do some laundry. Peace and ♥!

Ok! Where to start...
Meg, Rox, and I were talking about going to the shore and we decided that we're grabbing the men and going this weekend. We need it! Meg, Chris, JJ, and I along with John having been going to a lot of protests and handing out fliers around the clock and JJ has been working a lot of hours and still going to the protests with us. Plus, Meg is still doing some dancing on American Bandstand. Rox is still dancing too and doing hair for the show.

Anyways, we need this weekend to relax and have some fun, fun, fun in the sun. Even, Mrs. Pryor agrees because she sees that were being worn down. So, she agreed to watch John for the weekend. JJ and I talked about going back the weekend after with John! It'll be GREAT! :)

I have to go and get dinner started! Peace and ♥!

[ mood | feeding john and other stuff ]

Yea, so Meg and I were talking about going to the shore with JJ, Chris, Rox and Luke. I told her it would be great! I think we all need a weekend getaway with how busy all of us have been. She watched John while JJ and I went out for dinner and a movie because she knew we needed a break.

Meg, Chris, JJ, John and I have been going to protests non-stop. We all want the war to stop because it's a senseless war and the killing needs to stop. Patty is getting big into being the football team's manager. Hey, whatever floats her boat.

Anyways, I have to go feed John then I need to getting everything together for tomorrow's protest / flier distribution (packing John's diapers and a few other things). Peace and ♥!

[ mood | excited ]

We've been to so many protests since I've been back that its good to know I can still be active in the anti-war movement.

But otherwise our lives have been pretty boring, and i'm looking for a little excitment. No one has planned a shore trip yet...but I think one is needed. Things have been really crazy around here and everything seems to be calming down. While it would be fun to take a trip with the entire family...I'm thinkng just me, rox, luke, chris, beth, and jj for an over-night. A couples thing! How much fun would that be?!?!?! I have to discuss it with everyone seeing as money is tight for everyone except Luke and Rox who seem to have more money than imaginable between not having to pay rent, running the viynal croc. and rox's hair business. but I could use a break from protesting and before college.

Chris will be gone soon too, but I'm not sure when or where. He's mentioned Canada quite a few times and I wouldn't be suprised if thats where he dissappeared too. I don't think he'd ask me to leave this time though. He knows that while I was out in Berkley I loved being with him but hated being without my family and friends.

I'm off for a quick record swap with Sam and then back here so JJ and beth can drop off my favorite little nephew so I can watch him while his parents go to a movie and get some much needed alone time!

[ mood | at another protest ]

Well, at another protest with Meg, Chris and John, and JJ is with us now. It's great!

The last protest he went to with us, the crowd found out he was a Marine and he served over in Vietnam. He ended up getting up on a brick wall and spoke about what he saw. I impacted so many people at the protest and people just passing by who heard what he was saying. It's amazing now that Chris and JJ are getting along, but JJ is still mad about Chris taking Meg to California and not contacting anybody and so on. Anyways, that protest went smoothly up until the cops showed up. We were peaceful...and they tried to start a riot. One cop yelled at me saying I was a bad mother for taking my baby to a protest, then JJ got up in his face and said, "Excuse me. What did you say to my wife?". The cop repeated what he said and JJ said, "We are just exercising our right to a peaceful assembly, and teaching our child at a young age about the freedoms we have here, up until you and your fellow officers came to pick a riot." The cop shut up and stepped back. JJ didn't take a swing or anything physical. The cops just watched until people started to leave then they left.

I have to go. Need to make a food/drink run...it's hot out. Peace and ♥!

Gosh has it been a long time since i've updated.....

So much has happened that I really don't even know where to start. Basically I'm home (well Philadelphia at least) and safe. JJ, Beth and Rox came and found me and chris and brought us back. My parents were pretty mad, but they were also really happy to see me. I thought Mrs. Pierce was gonna faint she was so excited to see Chris.

We've been participating in protests and its quite exciting. I just think its important that our voices are heard, and protesting seems to be the way to that. Beth brings John III along and its soo cute. He's such a happy baby, and makes me so happy that I came home to see him grow up.

I'm living with Luke and Roxanne and don't really want to go home. I love my family...but there was more to going to California than just avoiding the draft. I wanted to start a life of my own. I'm not quite there..but not living with my parents is a start. I'm going to be 18 soon and that mean independence, and leaving bandstand. I'm dreading that day, but its fast approaching for both me and Rox. She'll still be there though, seeing as her hair business is taking off and bandstand has HIRED HER!!!

I still need to stop by college and make sure everything is all set for this fall. Its so exciting to think that I will be a college girl. Lets just hope I don't meet any more Drews. I'm pretty happy with my Chris...even though he is somewhat of an escaped convict.

He's gonna leave again though. I'm not sure where he'll go, or if he'll tell me where he's going, but he will leave eventually. I know him and I know that there is no way he will stick around or get sent of to vietnam.

It's been a crazy week. Going to protests and everything...Meg has been going to Bandstand with Roxanne right after each protest. Meg told me that Roxanne cut her hair and from what I saw...she does an amazing job! Anyways, today's protest went great mainly because no cops showed up. As always, John had fun...that will never change.
Tomorrow should be good because JJ has agreed to come to a protest and join in! I have to go cook dinner now, peace! ♥

Meg, Chris, Beth and John all went to a protest a few days ago. I heard the police came, but I am not certain. I am not sure what Jack thinks of all this. I suppose, since JJ is not fighting in the war anymore, he's okay with it. JJ seems to like the idea of protesting now. He told me this awhile ago and I was quite surprised.

Meg, Jack and I were talking about her moving back in the other day. She's still sceptical of the whole thing. She knows that if she does another thing wrong, she'll get told to move out--permanently. But the only thing Jack'll do is ground her. He wouldnt tell her to never come home again, especially since he really missed her when she ran away.

I hope Meg moves back in soon. I know Roxanne and Luke are looking after her but it's not the same as having her home

So things have been going great since we returned home. Meg has been staying with me and Luke. He's not thrilled about it but he said it's fine that she stays (he knows how important it is to me). The hairdressing buisness is slowly growing. I've been getting more customers by the minute by advertising in the record store. Hopefully I can get my own shop soon.

Meg was telling me about how Beth has started to participate in the protests and how much she liked it. She said JJ III even liked it. I think I may go and check it out the next time they go to one. Maybe I will like it. I wounder what Luke will think of me going. I'm sure he will be a little scepticle about me going but he will let me, and even if he doesn't I will still go. Well I got to go there are customers waiting outside!

Peace!

[ mood | protesting mood ]

Ok, not to freak out or anything; but this last protest ended up with the police showing up. JJ III, Beth, Chris, and I ran (well, I pushed JJ III's stroller very fast) and we got out safe. It was only because some people who are for the war started a fight and pretty much...little fight became big fight. Beth and I told Roxanne about it and man, she was amazed that we got out without being arrested.

Mrs. Pryor freaked out, but she was happy that we weren't harmed. We're still going to keep going. JJ III seemed to love it! One of the protesters painted a peace sign on JJ III's face. Beth, Chris and I thought it was cute...we took a picture of us and a few other protesters together. JJ III even though he's only a baby gave the peace sign. I told JJ and he got pissed that we were at the protest, and I told him that we were fine.

I told him that were going again, and that he knew what was happening in Vietnam. He saw the bloodshed...and he's even thinking about on a day off to join in the protests. He was telling me that 1/2 the time he was there, he saw babies that were just crying being shot by his unit. He knows now that not everything 100% is alright what the Marines are doing over there. Yes, we had to go there to help out some people, but when nobody who was just standing there and weren't doing anything wrong...shouldn't be killed.

When, I told Beth and Chris that JJ is thinking about joining with the protesting...they were AMAZED and happy!

Anyways, Beth, Chris, JJ III and I are going out to lunch then to another protest. Peace and ♥!

I was talking to Jack before. He said that Meg can come home anytime, not in a month like he originally said. I told Meg this when she, Beth, John and Chris came back from protesting and she was delighted, although, she wants to stay with Roxanne and Luke for a little while longer. I guess he changed his tune when I talked to him about how Meg can come for dinner every night and go back to the apartment aftewards. I told him what a hassle it might be and he agreed so hes letting her come home.

JJ has been working non-stop since they came back home. Not really non stop but he has been working alot. At least he's getting good money.

[ mood | peaceful ]

It's been a few days since Roxanne, JJ, and I have brought Meg and Chris back from Berkeley. JJ has been working a lot and I finally finished JJ III's anti-war t-shirt. I sewed the letters on: the back says - "Bring Peace to the World" and the front says - "STOP THE WAR". I added on peace signs. Mrs. Pryor and Rox thinks it's so cute.

Chris, Meg, JJ III and I are going to protest rally at University of Pennsylvania. So, I got to make this quick...Chris thinks it's awesome that I made the t-shirt.

I hope that Mr. Pryor lets Meg move home soon. Roxanne and Meg have been going from the apartment to Bandstand to the house for dinner than back to the apartment...and I can tell Meg wants to be back at the house even though it's fun living with Roxanne and Luke for a little bit.

Anyways, got to go...PROTESTING TIME!
peace and !

They came back two hours ago. It was really great. They walked through the door and everyone practically pounced on Meg, even Patty and Jack. Henry was able to make it to dinner after all. His plans finished early, so he decided to come. Meg really loved the banner; she was all "oh gosh, that was really nice of you."

Roxanne and Meg were really happy they were allowed to come back on Bandstand. They were even dancing. Pete came for dinner too. He is really happy that his niece is back. He isnt too happy with Chris, though. I dont blame him.

Sam and Meg are talking, even though she left without any contact. He's letting bygones be bygones which is a good thing. Meg is really happy to be starting college after the summer's over. She told me how "she was going to miss out," and how "she wouldnt be able to register at colleges in Berkeley." She doesnt know what courses she's going to take yet, but we'll all support her.

A little after dinner Luke and Roxanne drove Meg back to their house. I apologised to her saying that I was sorry that it had to be this way for awhile. She was fine with it. She said, "as long as I can come over for dinner at least every night, I'm happy."

It's great to be back home! When, we walked into the house Patty, Mr. Pryor...pretty mich everybody ran to the front door and jumped up on Meg with hugs. You can tell she was happy to be home; Mrs. Pierce is here and when Chris walked in she gave him a hug. I guess over a month of not seeing someone you love like family, it's hard.
Roxanne told me when we stopped off on our last break she called the producer from Bandstand and asked him about her and Meg coming back. He said he'll call Meg's house with his answer. Not even 10 minutes getting into the house the phone rings. It was the producer from Bandstand and he wants Meg and Roxanne to come back to the show, and he wants Roxanne to be the dancers' hairdresser! Roxanne and Meg are sooo happy!
Dinner was the same as usual. Talking been everybody at the table, Pete talking to Mr. Pryor; Roxanne talking to Meg; Sam, Henry and Luke were there...it's great to have Meg home. ♥

They should be home in half an hour. I just got a call from Beth and she said, "we are close. Very close." Everyone's getting nervous about seeing Meg again, but  they're also excited. I didn't get a chance to talk to Meg this time, though. I guess she was sleeping. The long trip does that to you.

Patty and Will have finished the banner; it's really good. Very colorful. It has "Welcome Home" in BIG bold letters at the top and it has "Meg" in small letters down the bottom and they drew pictures of little 45's all around it. Meg will love that.

Luke came by and wanted to know what he should bring for dinner. I just told him to bring himself. He smiled after that. It was nice of him to ask, though. I urged him to stay at the house because its a waste of time coming over for five minutes, then leave, then come back a few hours later. He agreed, and he's over here right now, on the piano. Patty is just sitting there, watching him play.

Sam should be here soon. Henry can't make it because he has other plans. Jack called me from work and told me, so that means one less at the table. But that's fine, I should have plenty of left overs for tomorrow.

I should go and check on dinner, now.
