I've been here for 12 years. I created my diary not long after my (now) husband and I started dating. We've been together for 12 1/2 years and together we have an 11 year old son and an almost 4 year old daughter. We've also been through a miscarriage in 2008 and we lost our newborn son in 2013. I'm so glad OD is back and I can continue our story here.

Forgiveness

August 20, 2018
I've been asking the Lord to stir my heart and show me what's holding me back from seeking Him fully. He's revealed a few things, but the biggest one is unforgiveness. Towards myself. I'm pretty forgiving, but I hold myself to a higher standard, the perfectionist in me. I've come to realize that ...

    I haven't been on. We lost internet when he lost his job. Life has been rough lately, and we both have struggled immensely with the return of depression. We're working and fighting now, but getting to the point of wanting to fight was difficult. Depression caused us both to isolate ourselves. He ...

    I haven't been feeling too well the last few days. Actually, it's off and on. One minute I feel fine, the next I feel like puking. It started a couple days ago. Thursday, I started out fine, then I ate a Big Mac and halfway through I started to feel queasy. Afterward, I felt like…

  • An Enjoyable Day – #totw18
    May 4, 2018
    I was just about to write about last weekend when I saw the latest theme of the week. An enjoyable day. Well, I've been on vacation since last Friday. Technically, Thursday afternoon started that vacation. I left work Thursday and after packing up the car and picking up the family, we went to the...

  • Today Was Not A Good Day
    April 21, 2018
    My coworker's boyfriend passed away today. He'd been sick, wound up being pneumonia, but we never expected this. She called out so she could deal with him yesterday and then she left almost as soon as she got in today. From what I understand, he had a lot of blood clots in his lungs. They…

  • The Storm Before The Calm
    April 19, 2018
    This week has been a challenge. Let's see, we had an employee leave last minute Friday to get her kids, so the weekend was rough. It sucked, but she had been fighting for a month or so to get her kids back, so I absolutely back her up for dropping everything when she got the…

    This month has been, well trying, to say the least. Darryl got hired on at Checkers, but he's only getting 20 hours a week, when he's not getting sent home early. It's been extremely frustrating. Last month we had a little money to fall back on, but now I'm getting behind. Unemployment only goes ...

    So let's see if anything has changed.   (2006 - 34% Insane) (2018 - 34%) Have you ever taken goggles into the shower with you? Nope. (Still no.) Have you ever stared at the blobs in a lava lamp for more than an hour? Not an hour, but for a good 10 minutes maybe. (Same)…

  • Overtime
    March 28, 2018
    I worked 14 hours yesterday. I'm so done with my store this week and it's only Wednesday. I still have 4 days left until the boss returns from vacation. I have one day left to work on this week's payroll and I left today with 39 hours, so I'll have 7 hours of overtime. I'm…

  • The Past
    March 25, 2018
    I've been reading some of my old entries and first let me say, I was cringe worthy. I almost want to scream at young me to stop being so stupid. Oye! Anyway, the nostalgia is real right now. I haven't longed to go back in time so much as I do right now. I wish…
