from dangerspouse :
Yeah, a lot of us who are left wonder where so many others have gone to. Very frustrtating for everyone who enjoyed the old vibrant community, with diary rings, etc. Glad you're still here, though. Can I ask - are you still quite involved with your dolls?
from annanotbob2 :
Hmm, so where is this new diary?
from annanotbob2 :
Thank you and best wishes to you and yours xxxx
from jimbostaxi :
Just read the reason why you kept the diary well said loved it I'll be following your exploits now :0)
from melodymetuka :
Yep, I'm still reading. As my life goes through all kinds of changes, this is one of the few constants. Good to hear from you again. ;-)
from dangerspouse :
It's funny, but I've had almost the exact opposite observation about Diaryland. It seems to me that after an initial exodus a few years ago, many people are now returning to blogging (both here and elsewhere) as they find the dearth of actual writing on social sites to be depressing. At least that's the impression I've gotten from a number of entries I've read in just the past few months from people who have returned after a several year hiatus. Anyway, I hope you get your Super Gold perks soon! :)
from melodymetuka :
Good to hear from you. D'land said you didn't have comments because you don't have Supergold. Just thought you should know. I'm finding the 50's to be the best yet. Be well and Gd bless
from melodymetuka :
Good to hear from you. I'm excited about the move, can't wait for it myself. I hope you keep us updated, and share photos
from melodymetuka :
It's good to hear from you. I haven't been reading, have just started to catch up today and it's really nice to see your name picked out in pink.
from jaysthoughts :
I like the pink on black layout. Simple and easy to read. I've seen a lot whose text color is white washed against their own background.
from giannarazi :
Yay!! Glad to see you are back online now. WOW!!! Glad to see BNO is working well now. The years hiatus has been great for you and them I guess ha ha. Awesome. I'm glad you got the trailer situation somewhat sorted out. I've taken all your ideas for the cats and used them for my apartment and got myself a cat ha ha. I've had to take down breakables, but we forgot about the top of the fridge and freezer ha ha. Live and learn ha ha. At least my stuff was candles and not AS breakables. Sorry to hear about the Petstore and it's their loss. Glad everything else it working itself out and that you are back online now. MISSED YOU LOADS!! **BIG HUGS**

Hi - just wanted to let you know I'm thinking of you. I hope that all is well. ==>Mel
from yrbkmom :
Ok, so I went to the effort to beg you to keep writing and I am sure your TRUE readers are going to find a way to let you know. So don't stop writing here.
from mel-is-dvash :
I've been too sick to notice if you haven't been writing lately, but I'm here leaving you a note because if you stop writing I'll miss you terribly. At least, when I'm well enough... *wry grin* I'm hoping you have some good news. {{{{{{{{{{{{Hugs}}}}}}}}}}}}}}
from fireflyez76 :
Hi there, I stumbled upon your diary thru another diary. I love what I've read so far and began peeking thru all your little "about me" things on the side. I was pretty shocked to see that you love New Hampshire and that you actually talk about two regions I am familiar with! I live in a tiny town 30 minutes from Keene, which is in the Monadnock region and have myself had to navigate thru the chaos of Manchester (I can say I am NOT a fan of that but the mall is fantastic!!) Anyways, I just thought I would say hello! -Jamie

WHY did your Mom have to have dentures at age 18? Did she loose them in an accident? I went to school with a girl who had false teeth at age 18. Only, it was because her parents had never taken her to a dentist. When she turned 18 she got her own dental insurance and FINALLY went to a dentist. The dentist told her it would cost X amount of dollars and she said, "PULL THEM ALL," and that is how she ended up with dentures at age 18.
from im2qt2kr :
Thank you. he will be missed.

I wanted to ask you about Alzheimers patients. WHY would they completely trash a house and become ANGRY?
from boxx9000 :
I hope I did not imply that kids today have NO imagination? But, they definitely have less. They are being taught how to take rote type tests but they can't think outside the box. Creativity is not being valued in the schools, and that is a HUGE shame.
from im2qt2kr :
Howdy Ms. Wyndspirit, long time no chat. In regards to your comment to casa-rosie about good samaritain law....Yes, you're right about it's main purpose is to protect people who help others as some have been sued..for instance, someone who broke someone's ribs when performing CPR. But, in some states it also extents, under certain cases, to punish those who don't help when they could, for instance, the group of people who stood around and watched as a woman was raped on the street...sad, but true. Of course, I am not an attorney, nor trying to give any legal advice. So, how have you been doing? I've recently started back posting after a long "vacation". Big hug to you. P.S. I tried to leave a message on your guest book, but it wouldn't let me.
from onlymayday :
Hi, just now saw your message. I see your point with the "which would I rather have sing to me," that makes sense. Unfortunately, I don't find a lot of guys who sing in my range- there'll be those two or three notes that I have to bring up an octave, and that just sounds silly. Thanks for reading!
from ingridwrites :
Oh yes, soon you too will hear the caterwauling RERAWR! sounds in the middle of the night. The good news is, this cat has finally decided she might like us. After next week when we get her fixed, probably not so much. Oh well, you win some you lose some. Are there any low cost spay/neuter clinics near you to save your sanity?
from mel-is-dvash :
Yes, I changed the password. I needed a place to write truly privately, at least for a while. And I didn't want to create yet another diary.
from ladyinma :
Thank you for the note.. I do sooo need to vent, seriously. Thanks for reading... didn't know anyone out there would be interested. lol

Tell your sister to start taking prenantal vitamins if she hasn't already, and eat lots of folic acid. Dark leafy greens, stawberries, suttf like that. That will dramatically increase her chances.

from kait77 :
Would you be willing to share the basic code you used? I would use a different picture and likely change a few small things but would add a design link back to you. I can do basic editing but to write an entire page is beyond my energy right now, also how do you know what number is which color for text and such?
from kait77 :
Saw your diary and love your design would you mind telling me who did it? I am thinking about changing mine since it has been a long time since I have and it is kind of boring.

from alwaysange :
Service level percentage for us at the call center I work at is that we are expected to answer 90% of all incoming calls in 30 seconds or less. The call center is just over a year old...we're still in the baby stages and corporate rides our butts if we don't perform. If we are getting "low service level," we are forced to forego our breaks and shorten our lunches. It's quite ridiculous. There are a few things that don't make sense from a customer service standpoint, like having good call stats and trying to meet goal on number of calls taken, but the smart managers know that quality needs to be there and first-call resolution needs to be part of the big picture. Wednesday, for me was the worst day I've ever had on the job and it was my one-year anniversary. Way to celebrate it. Overall, it's a pretty good job. Call center B.S. and all.... Thanks for the comment!

Hello B.J.! *smiles* I read "The Fairy Godmother" sometime last year. I finished it too quickly. I want to buy the sequel soon, and I'm currently reading Mercedes Lackey's Mage Winds trilogy. I'll be getting the Mage Storm trilogy too.

Thanks for your kind note and the reminder that that quote did come from a Robert Frost poem. I also love Robert Frost and have a book of his poetry which I havne't cracked open in many many years. It think it is time to sit down with it again. God bless you for the work you do.

100 books in a year? My god, I've been working too hard.
from yarnsmith :
I would be happy to send you the questionairre once I finish it. I bought a software program called "Personal Biographer" it contained a book with 1000 questions, which I am sort of readapting to my method of interviewing and typing out in a word document. As of now I am only 1/4 finished with it but would be happy to share it once finished. The reason I though of you is that before I can start my business, I need to do a few freebees to see if I can do a polished enough product for people to pay for and also may be get a little word of mouth advertising. I though about you sitting there with your clients and how interesting it would be to capture their stories as long as you are with them and how eager they might be to share them. You wouldn't necessarily have to sell your self to them, but use them as practice in doing such a thing and in return give them a precious gift of their life story in writing to pass down to other generations. The process of the interview is often fun and therapeutic to these people. After you have done a few of these bios, you might find out that you love hearing other peoples stories and may find a wonderful line of work. Also as a creative writer, hearing stories of other real people from another time and place may give you inspiration for some of your other writing projects. I will let you know when I am finished with the questionaire and then I can make arrangements to send you a copy.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN.....BOO!
from yarnsmith :
Thanks for the note....it certainly is a Gender thing. Howard is from the old school where women are to be kept barefoot preganant and in the kitchen or those that do work are supposed to have "little" clerical jobs that don't need to pay because their husbands can support them. I hope I find a way to get what I want and I hope that it hurts them good...although it probably won't and I won't know if it does. Thanks again for responding...my online buddies are keeping me going here today.
from poolagirl :
Okay, I'm almost there - the finish line! Please add one more book - 462 pages. ALMOST!
from yarnsmith :
Thanks for the nice note. Last week went better with Howard. He spent some time on helping Dan adjust to the new role and tying up loose ends and then spent some time out of the office meeting with old customers to tell them about the transition and trying to get us new scrap accounts. Dan went behind his back to the owner about changes he wants to make and will make them regardless of how Howard feels. I will go directly to the owner for my raise. I guess the owner will keep Howard on part time, 2 days per week with the intention of having him secure some scrap accounts for us. He did sit at the old desk for a bit while Dan sat at his old desk, but I guess it is the best interest of letting him retire easily...after all Howard didn't own the company but he built it from the ground up and in a sense the company is his baby. I will just be patient. At least I love him like a father. Re hubby...I've wanted out for 25 years...kid is grown...he is depressed and sees a shrink and is on anti depressants and tranquilizers. What he needs is to grow up. I think the meds are depressing him...He has always been this way. However I have changed my plan from just leaving him on the spot..suddenly and will meet with him at his shrinks office and letting him come around slowly.....maybe agree to see a marriage counselor first..that way...maybe I can be of some help to him getting his life together again before I go and who knows...in the process...maybe there will be a turn around and I'll end up staying. I am not just going to run off. I guess I have been an enabler in the way that I don't get between him and his drug provider (his psyciatrist). It is a mututal beneficial partnership. Mike gets legal drugs and the shrink gets 265.oo per month. The reason I don't interfere is because he gets verbally violent...each foul word huts like a physical punch. No...I am not bruised on the surface...but my insides and emotions are black blue and bleeding....so I just leave him be. Ok...now I have used up your whole notes section...Thanks again for the nice note and for the suggestions.

AAHHHHHHHH! I am so close! Please add one more book and 351 pages. AAAHHHHHHH!

I used to love discussing politics but the nation is so divided and everybody is so rabid about things now you can't have a rational discussion any more. I agree with you that a President should be held to higher standards and I think G. W. is a good man. I will vote for him because there is so much at stake now, but our Illinois Republican Party is in such a shambles...it makes me ashamed to call myself Republican. I won't vote for an Illinois Republican again til they get their act together....I don't think they are conservative anymore....Instead I am giving the Libertarians a good look and may vote for a Libertarian candidate for Senator. Nice to meet another conservative on D-Land...for a while, I thought I was all alone...Paula

I was reading the section where you told things about you. One part you said your eyes were so bad you could never get contacts. well, mine were like that too BUT they have come out this year with a kind i can wear constantly - i mean i don't even take them out for two weeks at a time and can't even feel them.

I agree with you completely BJ. Believe me, if I'm not working on ways to keep myself from spiraling downward, you can bet my mother and/or my therapist are both on my case saying: "So what are you doing about this Cat?" :-) It was just a moment that happened to get the better of me...I know better than to post an entry when I'm feeling the way I was when I wrote that. I greatly appreciate the idea of being dragged to B&N...trust me, it wouldn't be too difficult to get me there. :-D Thank you for the note you left. *Hugs* -cat

Yes, I've heard about the nightlight trap, but I haven't tried it. I also heard about using diatoms or salt on the carpets. I will definitely try the borax and let you know how it works. THANKS.
from boxx9000 :
FLEAS! I'll check out that site you sent me, thanks. So far I have bombed the house and put drops on all 3 cats. Yesterday I tried to find borax but couldn't. I bought some white flea powder and put it all over my carpets and waited one hour. I also put drops on my cats AGAIN. I vacuumed really good AGAIN. I take the vacuum canister outside every time to empty it. I could see fleas jumping in the canister against the white powder. OH YUK! Today is better....until the next eggs hatch! I am vacuuming twice a day and hopefully that will catch a bunch of the new ones.

Thanks for the interest, I'm amazed that anyone would bother! "Choices" is a much better way to look at it rather than "have to" or "should"; I'm trying to lose those and the feelings that come with them. Maybe I'll make "choices" my new mantra ;)

Truthfully BJ, I don't keep this diary for myself. If I had my druthers, I'd stop writing here but every time I decide to do so, so many people say: "Oh no, please stay. I'd miss you too much if you left." So I stay. -cat

Hi BJ, I know you're pressed for time, but if you're ever looking for a new diary with good writing, you might want to try "erraticbrain." I've been reading her for a while now, and I really enjoy her work. I hope you had a lovely Memorial Day weekend. *HUGS* -cat

Thank you for the bday greeting. **hugs** I did laugh when I read you weren't sure what to put for your blank spot on your resume. I understand that feeling, but you can put analysis & photography on your resume. Your pictures are worthy enough especially sunsets and your analysis are when you help us all at DL, with suggestions. Oh and I will use your idea of volunteer in online organizations. As that is what it is, a support group. Thank you again for the idea and have a good evening and I hope you are able to rest up some.

The reason I haven't sent you any of my writing is because I have a Mac with an ancient version of Word Perfect...no Windows programs, and I'd hate to cut and paste so much into emails.

It's legal to make one copy of a cd for yourself and to have a copy of it in mp3 form on your computer. You did nothing wrong. Artists only make like 10 cents per unit anyway so if you were really interested in supporting them you should go to one of their concerts, if possible. Now that I think about it, they probably make more off one unit of merchandise than an album.

Yup, read those authors, loved Cheysuli series, actually that's what got me into Roberson. I liked her "Lady of Sherwood" or whatever it's called, too. I read Terry Brooks' books, and actually just finished Dragon Prince last week, took me 4 days to read. I haven't read Haydon or Wurts, I don't think. I enjoyed the Riftwar books by . . . Raymond Feist I think it was, and the Elvenblood books by I can't recall. lol I read too many books and can never keep the authors straigh! I liked Talion Revenant, too, but can't recall the author, and was disappointed that it wasn't a series, cuz that would have been a good series, imo. You have SUPERB taste in books, btw *wink*. Keep me posted on any good reads! :) I love to read and am always in need of a new book! I'm gonna have to get a copy of those "Shadow" books you mentioned, Shadow Moon and so forth. Sorry for the novel! :) Later! *wave*

from the-book-bag :
I agree with you completely BJ. I love reading anything (except horror) if it's well written. Even though certain genres aren't MY genres (i.e., romance, sci-fi and westerns), if the writing is good, I will read it. The only category I tend to shy away from is horror, simply because the goal seems to be: gross out as many of your readers as possible. That being said, I do occassionally indulge in Dean Koontz because his novels balance the violence with good plots. And what you were saying, about how difficult it seems to be for people to move beyond the content to the quality of the work has always been a roadblock for me too. Please don't get me wrong; I LOVE Fannie Flagg, Maeve Binchy, Elizabeth Berg, and I loved THE NANNY DIARIES and IT'S MY F---ING BIRTHDAY. So I don't have a problem critiquing those types of pieces. I don't even have a problem critiquing horror, because I look past the details to what matters (the writing, the structure, the character development, continuity, clarity, etc.) just like you. I think part of the problem with my class also lies in the fact that everyone there is scared of saying something that might hurt the author's feelings. They don't seem to understand that a good critique can include praise and recognition of what works, while also pointing out an area that was hazy, or where they got lost; and that they can give those critiques in postive and supportive ways. Perhaps too, they're afraid if they're too hard on someone elses' work, their own work will be ripped apart. I'd love to share some of my work with you. I've accumulated a decent number of stories and quite a few poems (many of which need revisions). The short stories, at this point, are first drafts. I set a goal at the beginning of the year to produce at least one short story or essay per week for six months. So right now, my focus isn't so much on editing as it is, getting the stories/essays down on paper, then typed into my computer. I'm only telling you this so you know not to expect spectacular, edited gold. :-) Because I have so much, why don't I send one essay, one short story and one poem, once a week? twice? What would work best for you, 'cause I know you're busy. Just let me know. Oh, and you can you the Dland email thingie for me too. You know the-boo-bag@diaryland.com, and it will bump it right over to my email box. Okay, I've gotta go now. I'll be back later to read entries. -Cat

Thinking about it, my work's not so much experimental as it is...dark. My poetry tends towards the "confessional" (although I abhor that label, and I do my best to transcend personal wank poetry). The short stories tend to focus on people's dark sides, psychologically. Also, I'm taken with the extrapolation-type work of Margaret Atwood, George Orwell, Aldus Huxley, Nabokov, etc. And my essays, while "personal" (and because I have a dark side, they tend to deal with issues most people would rather not deal with) are not confessional. I do my best to look for the larger theme in something I'm working on. A few people in my class tend to want quaint, happy stories ( la Maeve Binchy and Fanny Flagg -- and I LOVE the work of both authors) or pieces that take a "conventional" path, whereas I try to look for something edgier or the unexpected. Does that kind of answer your question? -Cat
from boxx9000 :
Happy Easter. Maybe I will read a book this week while I am on vacation.
from the-book-bag :
I agree with you completely. I finally realized I wouldn't find a kindred spirit by hanging out and looking in places where I'm uncomfortable or that simply aren't my "scene." I've been looking for a writing group for a while now...it's kind of difficult for me to find one though. Most people seem to want stories that are the equivilant of paintings of bowls of fruit. Not that such art doesn't have it's place, I just tend to write more experimental stories and poems and most people I've shared my work with have a difficult time moving past the subject matter and critiquing the writing. I still have hope though, and I keep looking! -Cat P.S. Thank you for adding me to you favorites list. I'm sorry about the wiped out archives. I'm working to accumulate entries as fast as I can. :-)
from poolagirl :
Thank you so much for writing to me - and for being a sap. It's okay. I'm a sap too, and I think we need to hang together. I just love your work! Oh, and please add another book for me - and 539 pages. Thank you so much!
from poolagirl :
Well........after taking the precious one for a nice long walk, I find myself dreading the encounter with the caregivers tonight. They don't seem enthused about having her around at all. I really wish they had never called. I can't believe I'm saying that, but it's true.
from poolagirl :
Better clean up those tumbleweeds, darlin' one. Wouldn't want them cluttering up the place now, would we? Sheesh! Don't they give people any credit for having a brain?
from poolagirl :
How funny! I've been to Wahpeton. Used to play in a band with a gal who grew up there. She was Shirley Mauch. Apparently, they have a big family around there. Ever heard of them?
from poolagirl :
Are you from North Dakota? WOW! I used to go there all the time when I toured with my band. Have you read thecrankyone yet? She's from Fargo.

sorry about NOT being able to view my NEW diary template. it is a pretty one with Van Gogh's Starry Night theme.
from chaosdaily :
hey thanks, but i bought 4 at target. that should tide me over until the after easter marksdown!! i say we email hershey and complain!!
from im2qt2kr :
2 things: Try computergeeks.com I had great success with them on both a printer and scanner (believe they refurbish display models and such) Their stuff has same guarantee as new and is like new, but a lot cheaper (tech friend recommended them to me) Also, you might want to check out monster.com for listing your resume. Several friends of mine have had good luck with finding jobs through them. It's free so worth a shot. I'm going to use them soon myself.
from hissandtell :
Hello - I've just re-visited you through notes you left at poola and im2qt, and I realise I actually read many of your entries - if not all of them - a couple of months ago. I remember thinking that your life sounded quite exquisite. I look forward to catching up again. Love, R xxx
from saladwhore :
I'm up to 10 books, 3357 pages. *thud*
from im2qt2kr :
Hi "wyndspirit". I've been glancing through some of your entries and we share a lot in common. i.e. age, crafting, sewing, momentarily unemployed, etc... I listed you as one of my favs and I look forward to reading more.
from poolagirl :
They tow drivers actually finish card games before they help a AAA person in distress? For shame! (so I don't waste note space) You can add another book and 574 pages to my stats! YAY!
from poolagirl :
I really want to join your book club! I've tried to send emails, and they bounce right back to me. Here are my stats: Poolagirl, http://poolagirl.diaryland.com Books (so far) 22 pages 9,000? (a guess). Thanks!
from saladwhore :
Wheeeeeeeeeeeee!!! Up to 9 books, 2751 pages. :p
from crateobscure :
Thanks for reading my poy entry! Sorry about the guestbook thing. I was changing the template a few days ago and zigged when I should have zagged. It should be wroking now for everyone's signing pleasure.
from saladwhore :
I have another book update! Up to eight books and 2365 pages! Too bad I wasn't at this point a month ago . . .
from boxx9000 :
I have never had a job where I had to ask to pee. I've worked for the telephone company, the SF Giants baseball team, i've worked as a receptionist and I've worked as a teaching assistant. The job that requires the most education is the one that requires me to ask permission to pee.
from poolagirl :
Why thank you! You just tripped your odometer with 500 entries - and THAT is impressive! Love your stuff, lady!
from wendchymes :
hi, I just wanted to thank you for all the kind and supportive words that you have sprinkled into my life, and to let you know, that I really appreciate your voice. I have added you to my reads and like the little vignette peak into your world, because everything you offer seems so real and geniune and sincere. When I write, in my diary,I usuall write in such a mystical way, that is elusive and intangible, but because I have liked so much the honesty of your diary, I started to occasional offer a bit more of my real self to my little blue diary. so, just so you know, you have influenced me, as well. I also sometimes post on http://authorsden.com under the name wendchymes. You might want to check out that site, and post some of your own writings! My love to the kitties,and best wishes to you, in your job search, ~wendy
from saladwhore :
Yeah, I'm not too worried if I make it to 100 books or not. I just really need to brush up on my reading skills. I used to be able to barely skim over a page of very dense text and it would all just sort of jump into my head effortlessly. I have to actually READ each and every word now and it takes forever! So frustrating...
from saladwhore :
Finally, an update! I now have 6 books, 1717 pages! I'm never going to get there - but I'll keep trying.
from boxx9000 :
Hi, I AM reading, but not any too quickly. I bought the Hobbit and the three RINGS books from my classroom book order. I haven't gotten very far. I am reading at bedtime and I fall asleep about 2 minutes after I get in bed. (sigh) I am working on it, tho.

from eucalia :
Hi there! I was just leaving a note for politics101 when I read a note you had left for her previously. You suggested that trying to read 100 books in a year is a bit much because you tend to read longer books. What if you made your goal a certain number of pages instead? Say an average book is 250 pages long so make your goal 25,000 pages in a year? Just an idea! :)
from loriebug :
Wow, you can't stand chicken! I don't know how I'd live if I didn't eat chicken. Anyway, you can make it with any cream soup - cream of mushroom, cream of celery, cream of broccoli if so inclined. I like the mushroom a lot and sometimes we'll even make a big batch with one can of mushroom and one can of chicken. :)
from politics101 :
I wanted to tell you that the tag you left on my diary was EXACTLY what I was trying to get across. I just couldn't figure out how to say it. I realize everyone isn't flying around the world in jets going places, but a change every now and then would be nice, you think?
from athome :
Thanks for the note. I am glad you enjoy my diary and I have a feeling that you read a lot if not all!
from athome :
I really enjoy reading your diary, I did not read everything quite yet but it's good to finally reads someone that is not a teenager! You can access my diary by using the name alex and the password fallin...

HA! Got my first person who didn't realize it was a JOKE. read what she wrote in the shout box. GOOD GRIEF.
from politics101 :
thank you for realizing my WISH LIST was a satire. I hope everyone else does, even though I'm sure there will be some who don't realize i was being funny!! can you even IMAGINE having my wish list for real???
from rdhdprincess :
I would love to see pictures of your antiques! And, um, well, since I see that you can't say no, I thought I would go ahead and make the request. Ha! Really. Come on. I am in love with my books, too. Just looking at the stack on the "yet to be read" shelf as I walk past is gives me pleasure and something to look forward to!
from cosmicrayola :
Thank you SO much for pointing that out!! That could have been a disaster! Spellcheck doesn't pick up on those kinds of stupid mistakes, lol.

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas Day!

So sorry about your migrain. I battle with those at times as well. What works with getting rid of them for you. I, just like you did, sleep it off mostly. Well. Hang in there! later. HB
from alwaysange :
Thanks for the suggestion of baked goods! I actually make kick-ass Betty Crocker brownies, and I think you're absolutely right. It would make a great mailbox-stuffer! You're a genius!!!

Thanks for signing my guestbook! You have very cute pets!
from politics101 :
hey, this is melanie! you know, i just didn't understand the message about the dress. i didn't know if she thought the outfit was cute or WHAT. now i think i know. on the side of my bookshelf, i have my children's baby clothes hanging. i have them ALL over my bathroom. (i'm a sentimental mother)
from alwaysange :
Oh joy, we're getting our first snow here in Montana today. I want to enjoy it, but I am not a cold-weather fan.
from mizlizzy :
Thanks for the insightful message re: my husband's hunting. To clarify I do not disagree with hunting as a general rule. I suppose I am more covetous of his time. But like any other hobby, golf, fishing, etc., it is something he enjoys and I am not going to stop him from doing it. But it is annoying when you're trying to talk to your husband about his daughter or something else that is important, and he interrupts to say, "I need to get a new cushion for my seat on my tree stand," that's a bit annoying. I just wish his excitement level was a bit lower so he could still focus on real life. But I guess that's why he loves it so much. I am new to this Hunter's Wife role, so I just have to get used to it. Next November, I am planning a tropical getaway for a long weekend for me and PeeWee and I'm sure I won't be feeling too bad next year! And to be honest, venison tastes great as a roast, I don't mind the fact that he provides food for us this way. Does this make sense?
from politics101 :
i can ALWAYS count on you! laura HASN'T spoken to him in five days and that was pretty hard to her to do. but she stuck to it (with a lot of tears). she now realizes that she WASN'T being unreasonable. that he actually did have serious problems. living in new orleans, teenagers NEVER go anywhere alone. probably like new york city. so, she is always with a group and her father bought her a can of mace (even though by law you can't carry it until 18). trust me, we are keeping an eye on this. i don't think this was an "attempt" because if those boys hadn't caught him, he's be DEAD alreay. that's the scariest. one of my son's best friend hanged himself in 8th grade and steve STILL mourns. we NEVER want to go thru that HELL again in out lives. THANK YOU SO MUCH for talking with me. love, melanie
from sunnflower :
I kept meaning to add you to my diaryland faves list - this morning, I finally did! I love your wonderful diary.
from inkdragon :

from boxx9000 :
Two more weeks, huh? I am so envious.
from alwaysange :
Wow, someone from the "neighborhood!" Hi from Montana! Just browsing through your diary, I see that it is absolutely great!
from sunnflower :
Just a note to say how much I enjoy your diary!
from captvfirefly :
I absolutely LOVE both of those novel titles you suggested! They are perfect! So you don't mind if I use one? :) Also, I love the socks I mentioned in my entry. They go perfectly with the sweater I wore. Plus, they are Christmas but not overtly Christmasy. I'm not much of shoe person, but I love funky socks!
from squirrelx :
Thanks for validatin' our child rearin' strategy, such as it is! We've been buttin' heads with Delores left and right, and that's made me second guess myself even though deep down, I'm convinced she's exacerbatin' the very problems she's tryin' to solve. Warmest regards, Xtine
from mpeacock :
Thank you, as always, for your words of wisdom. Sometimes I feel like these wonderful people in Diaryland, like you, are the most special people in the world, because we find a way to express our feelings. You are so special. And as much as I want to not ask why, I still will.
from flyinby :
Your words of support in my guestbook have helped me a lot, actually helping me in making the decision to call in the first place - validating my concerns, letting me know I wasn't paranoid. It sounded funny to more than just me, and that meant a ton to me. I appreciate it. Truely. And I hope it all ends soon!
from xevelle :
happy diary anniversary~! mine's just two weeks old, i think. ;P
from cryondemand :
Clicked your ad and just wanted to say I enjoy your diary. I will definitely be back.
from squirrelx :
Maybe we're both shadows, but that's not a bad thing to be. Without us, nobody would appreciate the light. Warmeset regards, Xtine P.S.: ALL our animal babies react to the full moon, but I'd have to say Trinkets manifests the most dramatic response. She turns into the were-chihuahua.
from parca :
*grins* I know, that's always been one of my favorite quotes. It reminds me of the way I think, but then, it's always easier to give advise then to take it.
from squirrelx :
Thank you SO MUCH for the message you left in my guestbook. I can't tell you how much I appreciated it. You made me feel as if my diary actually has meanin' --- as if there's some purpose to keepin' it besides ventin' my emotions. With respect and gratitude, Xtine
from boxx9000 :
re: static electricity. Thanks for your note in my guestbook. I've been keeping an oven mitt in my car just so I don't get shocked. I always thought I just had bad luck with watches and batteries. I have a whole kitchen drawer full of watches with dead batteries. Ha!
from squirrelx :
You may have been ventin' in your most recent entry, but it made fascinatin' readin'. I'll be honest with you --- if I'd read that magazine article, I'd probably have taken the information on blind faith. As ever, Xtine P.S.: I found somethin' else that's great for animals' coats. Fish oil capsules! They're workin' wonders on Jett.
from ktdream :
Hi, just wanted to say thank you for the messages and advice. You're right, study group will be great. I hope I can do as well as you've done! =)
from ktdream :
I'm signing here cuz I prob can't write in your guestbook so soon again. Well I wasn't just average in high school. I had 3.83 cumulative GPA so I think that's pretty good but not a 4.00 of course. Anyway why did you think College was soo much easier? I know I have less classes that way but will have 10 times the amount of homework and all that..
from anifish :
Hey, if you feel like whining, whine! :) I'm a diary reviewer and I say to you, "Screw the reviewers!" If they ask you to make a change you don't want to make, don't make it! Hey, that's what I do... But it does lift your mood to write a positive entry every now and then, doesn't it? Yeah. Have a nice day!
from suzannah :
Great googly Jerusalem crickets! I just cruised in here from SquirrelX's guestbook and I'm glad I did. You have my sympathies for working helpdesk in the IT sector where I myself labored for awhile. If you can do that and still keep your sanity then you must be made of sterner stuff that me. Adding you to my favorites list this morning, I have a feeling you're going to be one of my favorite reads.
from squirrelx :
I fully agree with your contention that the Lord doesn't put strings on blessin's. As for punishment, I kinda think He lets us design our own. Best, Xtine / Squirrel X
from boxx9000 :
I love crafts as well, but I have a problem parting with anything I make. I like making things for people I know, but I don't know if I would be able to make things for *strangers* Do you have pics in your diary somewhere of your crafts? I'd love to see them.
from persistence :
Thanks for stopping by my diary. I have browsed yours and am started at the striking similarities. I also have four cats that I absolutely adore, my birthday is also August 7, I am also a weird mix of painfully shy and fiesty, I read an insane amount, etc, etc. So, a kindred spirit right here in diaryland!
from lambrini :
hi, ace diary indeed, ill definetly be back. gem x
from squirrelx :
Thank you for your words of wisdom and encouragement on the issue of havin' children. I'm really strugglin' with it. Anxiety bollixes my thought processes [such as they are] and discombobulates my heart. As ever, Xtine
from fan4 :
The prompts at Pieces-ofyou haven't been inspiring me either. I sent a complaint, and got an e-mail which explain the Skeletons in the Closet. I'd love to do another entry for Pieces-ofyou, but due to the problems going on at Diaryland (problems I don't quite understand), I'm blocked from my own diary.
from mpeacock :
Thanks again for all the wonderful thoughts you send. I hadn't thought about the commitment thing in that way, but next time it comes up I will mention that. :) I am happy today as I know the end of this high school is near.
from hisglory :
Hey there BJ,this is Heidi. I just read your Bio...you are awesome! Computers, crafts,cat lover,country music fan (won't hold that against you.LOL!)writer! Go Girl! Just to let you know in just the few notes you have left me, I find you to be very sensitive,compassionate and an exhorter of life. Thanks BJ for opening your life to everyone and your heart to me to encourage through this diaryland medium. You have made a difference and don't let anyone ever convince you otherwise. I hold your life in high value. Just wanted to drop a note and thank-you. Looking forward one day to meet you in person. Showers of Blessings on your life!! Your Friend, Heidi
from penchant :
I dunno. Highway construction takes decades here, too, and we're *run* by the conservatives, so I'm thinking the mafia idea is a little paranoid-especially since the things is supposed to be such an engineering marvel. And, yes, I run Windows '97. Don't you? ;)
from mpeacock :
Thank you, as always, for your kind words. As for my grandma, she was suffering for such a long time, as sad as it is, it is also a blessing.
from penchant :
no, she had a scary stalker. which is not cool. and i caught your entry a few days ago. i wish i could find th entry on stream i found. but, yeah jen is fine.
from mpeacock :
Thanks, again, for your words of wisdom. I think it's both a mismatch and a pattern the kids are in with the school. The other teachers complain about the same things. I am hanging in there, learning all I can, then GETTING OUT!!!! You too keep your chin up. I admire you for all you do.

from rdhdprincess :
Ooh! I love big planes, different planes, all planes! They just amaze me. K and I often go to the lookout at the airport and watch them. I'm glad you made it thru your shift, I hope you get some rest! Thanks for the note. You are such a smart woman. Everything you said made sense, and I was probably just being too critical of myself. I am trying to work on that very thing! (being critical, not the legs!)Ha! Well, the legs, too...

from sunnflower :
Hi from Suburban Island. I found your diary through a note you left in Cosmicrayola's guestbook. I just wanted to tell you that I enjoyed what I read of your diary and I am strangely drawn to Alaska too. I have no idea why because I hate to be cold but I have a couple Alaskan webcam links on my weblog. Go figure. I intend to come back soon!
from dreamwalking :
Love your diary! (and thanks for the message on my guestbook...encouraging). :-) I've read quite a bit already...but I'm gonna come back. :-) You can be very entertaining...heh. :-D
from the-bookgirl :
Hi! Thanks for signing my guestbook. I've been browsing your diary a bit and will return :)
from rdhdprincess :
Hmmmmm, that is a very interesting thought. Do you let friends read it, or not? It provoked some deep thinking on my part! I can't wait to see what you decide. Glad you're getting some good weather for awhile, at least, enjoy!
from parca :
lol, I kinda figured that's why everyone was telling me now, but it's still odd to find out about. And as to people telling me how I feel, well, it's something that irritates me to no end, but I'll get over it. *grins* That's the nice thing about having someplace to rant, I can go out and calmly face the world again after I'm done writing. By the way, my answers for the 'Reality Test': B, A, and B. ~_^ How'd I do? *grins* Well anyway
from hisglory :
Hey girl! Thanks so much for your encouragement and insight. You are right. My direction and passions lean towards ministry more than anything else. I am just waiting for the Word from Him to lead me into wisdom concerning this.It may be I will take some leave of absence this summer, and see what happens. Anyway, you are awesome to have taken the time to write what you did. I can't tell you how God used it to minister hope and peace to me. Your a blessing! Your friend from Atlanta, Heidi
from rdhdprincess :
Don't let yourself get discouraged, it is so easy to lose focus when you don't know where to start. Just spend a few minutes each day doing something positive for each important area that you want to improve. Take a little walk, organize one drawer. You don't have to solve everything all at once. You are a smart woman, you will figure it all out!

Ok Wyndspirit, I hope I am not abusing diarlyland friendships. But I have a computer question. The password windows screen that was asking for passwords before anyone accesses a website is no longer working. Can you tell me what might have happened. Tried to reset and it won't, now there is full access again with no password protection. Any ideas? HisGlory
from mpeacock :
"A girl can dream" I loved this entry. Makes me wonder too, how I would be remembered.

Hey Wyndspirit, Thanks for the info...so far so good regarding windows password access, but I will look into others as well. Thanks for the infor on the sites too, that helps. Blessings on you Wyndspirit. Heidi

Hey, Yea...a Christian Coffeehouse is quite different. I would like to take credit but it was not my idea. I am just walking out obedience to the Lord. I have smoothies as well if you do not like coffee products. Strawberry,Pina Colada,Banana,etc...Soda's too. We have bands every weekend and table games. It is just an alternative for families in the area and hopefully a refuge to people in need of a safe place to hang, teenagers,singles etc...About JB, my eldest cyber surfer. Yes,he will be more careful, but to "help" him I have put a block on the windows for password only access.LOL!! He has a awesome heart. God will help him. Thanks for your interest. Any suggestions on your end are welcomed. Say hey from Georgia to your cats for me.Later....HisGlory
from hisglory :
Hey Wyndspirit, This is HisGlory. Thanks for reading and blessing me! I need all the prayer I can get these days. LOL! Doesn't everyone! I am at work,so I didn't have time to check your diary out for very long, great set up though. Must be great to know how to do that. Go girl! If you are ever in Georgia come by the coffeehouse for a free one. I do know you said you were immune...but I am sure I can find something you like. Blessings on you!! HB

Have you ever read anything by Terry Pratchett? *smiles* if you haven't it's worth the read. The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic are the first book. (two books, one story.) But you can pretty much jump in anywhere.

from lo-ol :
(Followed your banner) Could be worse. In Australia, we don't really celebrate Halloween we don't have Thanksgiving, so Christmas stuff appears in the shops in early September (and you see a few things even earlier).
from leslieirene :
Your banner caught my eye! So gorgeous! I haven't read through your diary, but I wanted to tell you how lovely it is put together. God Bless You, Leslie
from parca :
'ello! lol, um, I don't really have anything to say. I followed your banner and discovered a rather interesting diary, so I thought I'd let you know I added you to my favorites list. ^_^
from buenacabra :
You have a very nice looking page, no time to read but I saw a very nice ad and a very nice page ;) *approving nod in your general direction regarding appearance of page*
from raw-voice :

update: Still fixing stuff as fast as I can!. As you may have noticed, Diaryland is being renovated, which is still in progress. Bugs are all being fixed. The new design should work on phones much better than the old one, and pages in the members area are being converted to the new look one by one, so they can be tested. Please email help@diaryland.com with any new problems, but things that are already bugs should be fixed soon!
