actually started in open diary in september of 1999. joined when there was only free open diary. wasn't sure i was gonna pay to write but decided i would in jan. of 2002 like it says to the left.

moved from new hampshire to tennessee august 20 of 2017 for very personal reasons. i am living with my sister and her husband til i find a place of my own. hopefully, it will happen soon after the first of the year 2018! anyway, i'm praying real hard it happens.

jason, my son, died in a car wreck on january 22, 1994 in colorado. he was 20 years old. it will soon be 24 years since he died. it's still hard to accept.

raymond, my husband of almost 20 years, died june 15, 2008 of cancer. he was 58 years old. he had cancer for over a year and we thought it was gone but it came back and killed him. i've had a difficult time accepting that he's truly gone and isn't coming back. the changes i'm making are hard considering they aren't ones he would have made. but, i have to live my life now the best way i can. i have to do it one day at a time.

raymond and i had 2 cats but zelda and maynard are both at the rainbow bridge waiting for me, i hope!

and now, i have my own little dog. her name is daisy mae and she's probably about 11 years old. i say that cause i don't have an idea how old she is. when i got her the vet said she was between 2 and 3 years old. anyway, i rescued her. she was taken from a woman in arkansas who abused her and threatened to kill her. she stayed at a rescue group for two months there and was sent to new hamsprhire to a foster mom where she stayed for a month. i saw her at a pet food store on a sunday. filled out an application to adopt her that day and she came to live with me two days later. we've never been happier. can't think of a single thing she does that's not perfect. i love my daisy mae!!! i think she is now around 11 years old, give or take.

i have a most wonderful 20-year-old grandson, Blake. what a wonderful young man! just thinking about him makes me smile. he's working at an insurance agency in NH. today, 2/9/18, is the end of his 3rd week there. he says he likes it but, we'll see how it goes after he's been there a while. he will be trying to sell business insurance to places he just walks into or calls and makes an appointment. cold calls are hard. but, he's got the gift of gab and i think he'll make a go of it, if that's what makes him happy and he ends up liking it.
