Being on the basketball team, instead of getting home at 3:15 and completing his home work by 5:00 he was now arriving at past 5:00.
His folks would arrive just after 5:30. They would eat dinner, talk, then he’d go back to his room, racing through his homework.
He was tired, but had to get a few sentences into his journal to capture the day.
Barry’s week day was woken at 7:30, breakfast, shower, dress, and leave home at no later than 8:45 to reach school by 9:00.
School to lunch, then after class, basketball from 3 to 5.
That meant, he had to do most of his homework during lunch, and then get busy from 7 pm so as to get it all done and a glance at a television program.
