She and Kennie were interrupted earlier in the evening by a couple of insurance salesmen which severely delayed her letter writing. Junie has been stubborn about what she will eat, so they had to talk to the doctor. Katherine is not enjoying the struggle that has begun over food. They also talked to the doctor because Junie's eyes seemed to be crossed. He thought it was a muscular weakness and sent them to see an oculist. He also recommended having her tonsils removed. Katherine wants to go clothes shopping in New York but is having trouble finding clothes that look good because she needs to loose some weight.
