Hopeful

November 29, 2020
Many entries are made because the writer can’t sleep, I bet. Thats me this too early morning. I know that I need to focus on what I want and not what I don’t want, but feel this strong urge to spill my guts about all the shit stuff going on right now. what is going…

  • Movin’ On….Sideways?
    November 25, 2020
    Awake since six.  I’d like that to be when I wake up anyhow, but I’m not that early of a riser yet.  Thinking about my néw apartment.  Trying to figure out how I can fit anything in it because it’s so tiny.  It’s gonna be cute.  I’ve had to give/throw away so much stuff.  And…

    We lost a family member this week.  On Monday, my brother-in-law Giovanni was found dead in his apartment.  He was seated at his computer, head laid on the desk.  My sister Jane found his body. He wasn’t Jane’s husband, he was her husband Georges’s brother.  I got to the apartment building when t...

  • New Start
    November 5, 2020
    I’ve been up most of the night..  Yes, I’m interested in the election.  I’ve checked MSNBC and CNN several times but nothing has really happened.  But I’m not nerved up and bothered by it.  It’s not what’s keeping me awake. Thinking a lot about my move.  Can it really be happening in 11 days?  Oh...

    OD is deathly slow again tonight for me, taking forever to load each page.  I wonder if it works better on a computer?  I’ve been using my phone.  Tomorrow I will switch. Yesterday and today I stayed below my WW points.  I haven’t done that in a month, probably longer!  I have to remember how&hel...

  • Only 10 Things, Not 25
    November 2, 2020
    Wow, OD is incredibly slow tonight.  This is only my 3rd entry so I don’t know if it’s always this way or not.  Hope not. I read an entry where someone wrote 25 things about themselves.  I’m not sure how interesting it will be, but I’m going to do it too.  I’m a 58 yr…

  • Huh?
    November 2, 2020
    OD says I have a message and a friend request.  I haven’t learned how to get at them.  When I click the icon it takes a long time to load.  Oh well I will figure it out eventually.

  • What a Difference a Year Makes
    November 2, 2020
    I was going to change my profile picture but figured a puking pumpkin might be the perfect image to have through the election.  And probably even after. Last year at this same time, I was in New York at my sister Hannah’s house, and I’d just lost 30 pounds.  We were going to WW together…

  • Making a Diary Pretty
    October 30, 2020
    I just refound OD last night.  I was a member eons ago, I mean like 13+ years or even longer.  I have yet to learn everything about this new format but I hope there’s a way to really customize it.  What I’ve seen so far is very boring visually. the old diaries looked almost like the…

  • Tangled Up Puppet
    October 30, 2020
    I’m so happy to find out OD is in operation again.  I was a member about 20 years ago!  Loved it, but it was gone when I tried to go back to it.  Tonight I googled “Blogs similar to Open Diary”and found OD is back!  It probably has been for years, I just didn’t know…
