It’s Birthday Week….

June 19, 2018
I love Birthday Week. When he and I were dating, he once told me "You will know every day that you are loved."  I do.  I know every single day that I am loved.  For the past 18 and a half years - I have felt his love every day. Birthday Week began in 1999. …

    Have you ever just wanted to say "whatever" to every person you meet regardless of what they say or the topic of conversation? That's how I've felt today - actually for a couple of days now.  I'm not sure what started this "funk", but it happens every once in a while.  From years of experience,&h...

    January 5, 2018
    No drama, I hope. I like life drama free.  I know that is unrealistic, but if I can string together a few days, weeks or months at a time when there is no drama present, I'm a happy girl. Then there is the type of drama.  I hardly have any personal drama.  My drama is…

    Thanksgiving! Home being our Open Diary community! It's amazing to be back home.  I say that because, as just like some of you, I tried to fill my OD journaling void by joining other 'diary' sites.  It jus wasn't the same.  OD was and still is home to so many of us and it is great to be…

    Hey y'all!  Happy New Year!  Welcome 2012! Can you belive it?!  I know, it's amazingly hard to believe how quickly time goes by the older we get.  Life just gets so busy that priorities shift.  And, I have to say that writing, while I love to write and have ached at times...

    I use my phone as my alarm clock.  I have a Thunderbolt (Brian does, too of course) and we use them for everything.  I typically wake up to"  Wkae Up Little Susie" by Melissa Etheridge.  Brian surprised me with that one day last year.  Anyway, this morning when ...

    If I had to live my life exactly as I had up until I met Brian - meaning going through all the horrible things that happened to me as a child, teenager and young adult, making the questionable decisions I did.... I would not change a thing if it brought me to Brian and let…
