I know it has been ages since I have actually taken the time to write an entry. I have spent today in a mood of reflection. I am a substitute teacher and today I covered for the In School Suspension teacher and had the time to read every entry I have made since arriving at OD. My, what a long, strange trip it has been. From completely depressed when I first started my OD to now, a Christian and happily married. What a difference!
We have an enjoyable lif. Granted, we live week-to-week, but at least we can live. I could complain about not having enough money to do the things I like, but instead I am grateful that we can survive, albeit just barely. It seems that whenever a huge expense arrives, somehow money does too. The Lord always takes care of us.
I spent the summer at my camp as usual only this year my cousin and her daughter stayed with me as they were homeless. It was a trying time, putting three people in a twenty-five foot trailer. There were times I just wan†ed to scream! And talk about taking advantage of me! She would take off in the morning to ge† her unemployment check and once did not come back until six AM the nextg morning. She did not understand why I was mad! I felt so used this summer that now, no matter what, I can't let anyone else live at my camp with me. My couch got destroyed as she smokes and burned three huge holes in my couch. Then, she defrosted my refrigerator with a chisel and a hammer and broke through the freeon. Now I have to buy a new refrigerator next year. No more nice guy!
We are now home for the fall and winter months and have lots to unpack from camp. I have to find new places to put things away. We live in a two bedroom trailer and the second bedroom is my office, it is also very very small. We have started to hide things under the skirting and I now fear that we will forget what we have stashed there. Maybe I will make a list.
There have been lots of changes here at OD and I have to get used to them. So many new features and such. I'm going to try to write something new and interesting once a week once I get back on line at home. In the interum, I'll write when the opportunity presents itself. It sure was nice to read my OD today and I look forward to more writing that will touch you as you read.
Love, River Angel
