from jensanimals :
Glad to hear you are at least alive. Been wondering about you. Let me know where you decide to keep writing, so I can keep up.
from ydwtk :
what kind of work would you be doing at the restaurant?
from jensanimals :
Good luck getting the job! Glad things are looking up.
from blue-swirl :
what a cute entry =)
from to-my-heart :
i still say you should send that letter to joe...
from meteroa07 :
Ahh I just loved your last entry. All those letters to different people/things. It was very cute. I just had to tell you, it gave me a little chuckle ;)
from thebestday :
It's Andy (sketchedpony). Just wanted to let you know that I have a new place now. Hope to hear from you.
from ydwtk :
judd may just have a huge double standard . . . if you see no future with him, maybe you can find better ways to spend the present? good luck! :)
from omnipre5ence :
Almost grown into...an adult?
from ydwtk :
you done good! Cleaning up and moving on is so right for you! :) What's meant top be will be, but you're not wasting your life away waiting. Be proud!
from juniperhexum :
*stands up and cheers* way to pull yourself back together girlie
from princesstosh :
Ann-Marie you held on longer than I think I ever could have. Good for you though, theres no reason that you two cant keep in contact, still. By the way Merak is a-d-o-r-a-b-l-e. Taking after his big sis already, huh?
from ydwtk :
that li'l dude has come through a lot this year -- and he's so ahppy! Hope you share in that happiness too! :) ((ann-marie)) hugs!
from tariqa :
Beautifully written and expressive poem of unrequited love.
from jensanimals :
Sorry things are not going well with Joe.. But good for you for getting out and having a good time!! I think a couple dates is great. If anything you made some new friends which is always a good thing too : ) Have fun
from princesstosh :
You love your boyfriend, you love your boyfriend...but that doesnt mean you still cant throw him over the balcony to teach him a lesson....you love your boyfriend, you love your boyfriend.
from princesstosh :
Awww, hes ADORABLE!!!! And, glad the meeting went well. Maybe its a sign of good things to come :)
from meteroa07 :
Awww I hope the grandma loved you! Man it's funny how little stuff can scare you
from ydwtk :
I bet granny loved you -- and the congregation welcomed you! Now imagine going there every Sunday for the rest of your life, and having your chilldren grow up in that church! :)
from sketchedpony :
It'll all be okay. Just be yourself and I don't think that there is any way that they could not like you. And they are going to be able to tell how much Joe loves you and that will help them to like you even more.
from sketchedpony :
That's cool that your one year is kinda on Halloween.
from moretoknow :
Water that's over or under 3 degrees of his old temperature will kill them almost instantly. They don't handle temperature change too well. Next time set the water out before you change it for a day, then all of the natural chlorine from the water will evaporate and the water will be at perfect room temperature. Also, depending on what kind of fish he is, he might need a tiny bit of canning salt added to the water to make sure it's sterile. Thank you daddy for owning a fish shop once. And the new layout's a lot better.
from sketchedpony :
Sorry about your fishie. Fishies make me nuts.
from princesstosh :
R.I.P Mr. T. *Sniffle*
from ydwtk :
your "private" link now goes to archives
from sketchedpony :
Happy birthday. Glad it went well. And hope that you get that ring.
from princesstosh :
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANN-MARIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
from liquid-mojo :
Sorry to hear about the lack of a fatherly presence in your life. I was never really close to my own dad and vowed that if I am ever to be a father, that I would always be there for my child(ren). The last thing you should do is blame yourself though. You are a very good person and it's really his loss for not being a part of your life. While we are on the subject of b-days, I wish you a very happy one and yes knowing you are finally going to be of age gave me a smile... ;)
from meteroa07 :
Oh man I can totally relate to your last entry, the one with the whole "absent father". My father at this moment in time is M.I.A. I don't know where he is and I haven't for a good month, nor have I seen him for an entire year. It was like that when I was little too, I didn't see him from the time I was one until I was 8. Then we tried the whole "i'll see you once a week" thing, but since last year, he hasn't been doing that all well. I usually blame myself, saying that he hates me becuase i'm not the one that calls him and I don't put forth the effort. Other times I blame it on him because he's the father and should be the responsible one. But it's just a cycle of pain and anguish so I just try not to think about him. It still hurts, but I guess you got to move on one day. Stupid fathers...
from ydwtk :
Be yourself. And don't worry, Merak won't carry a grudge against you! :) Let your readers know when the splint comes off and he's as good as new.
from bongo282 :
I have been following your journey since the begining. I would love to have the password to find out your juicy details. Bongo282@aol.com
from jensanimals :
Wow... Sounds like you had a shitty Wednesday.Sure hope the last few days have been better. ( I know , I am a little behind,Sorry)
from sketchedpony :
I bet your mom's going to be fine. I just have a feeling. I'm glad that you and Joe are doing better.
from ydwtk :
you got the prayers you requested. = = = = = = = = = = when there's something wrong with YOU, you can do things to fight it and recover. When there's something wrong with a loved one, you can help -- love, meet needs that are shown to you to the best of your ability -- but often the best you can do is pray. At times like that, I feel helpless but I know Who The Helper is!
from madamewolf :
*tear* that was so beautiful. you're theory on it is so sweet. I do hope ya'll make it. I love him when hes good to you and hate him when hes an ass to you. But hey thats what a friends suppose to do. :) I do hope ya'll beat the odds and make it.
from gonzostar :
hey, can i have the password? i love juicy details. and i'm rooting for you and joe! email me at gonzostar@hotmail.com.
from days-ahead :
Aww ... I am glad you had a wonderful evening. Hopefully this is the new beginning for you two. ((hugs))
from lousrose :
thank you, and ditto. i am always here even when lurking. and i still use mrjingles298 on aim- haven't had the heart to change sn's, haha. i will doublecheck and make sure you're still on my buddy list. thanks for the note, *hugs* and much love, sweetie.
from sketchedpony :
Guys are too hard to understand. Don't waste your braincells.
from madamewolf :
it was going ok...and then it went down hill...
from madamewolf :
hmmm howd the date go....the public demands information!!! guess what James called!! yay!!
from madamewolf :
im bored and its been 12hrs since your last update....im sitting here wondering how the date went...but mainly...im just bored.
from madamewolf :
good luck on the date!! oh and if u had cancelled it would have been okay cuz hes a jerk and deserves it since hes done that to u a many of a time. Oh and just in case it turns out horrible have some of your fav ice cream or sweets at home waiting and your fav cd in the cd player. just in case. Hope it all turns out good though. And if u think about it its probly best yall never did actually sleep together since he ended up pullin this crap on ya lol well heres hopin the boy wakes up and gets a brain *holds up wine glass*
from princesstosh :
Yay on the date. Boo on thinking you're setting yourself up for dissapointment---things will work out. Ever hear back from the guy who cooked dinner?
from sketchedpony :
I'm sorry how things are going for you. I really am.
from sketchedpony :
It was rearended. The body is completely totalled.
from sketchedpony :
You are not a whore. And you're not allowed to think that!
from princesstosh :
WHORE?!?!!? Oh no you did not just say that :) I guess its ok to be whore-ish as long as its you thats calling yourself that. Anyways, have a good day!
from princesstosh :
I am insanely jealous. Send him my way anytime!
from sketchedpony :
Chapstick is probably best for me, completely clueless about lipstick.
from princesstosh :
Ann-Marie you have done all the work you can do. Sit back and relax and just see where things take you. Its true that relationships are a lot of hard work---but usually its for a good cause---he's not even willing to try to make it work; he just continues to shut you out. Why?? And really, why should you wait? He hasnt made any promises thus far, right? Be young. Try to date. If you find out that everything in you wants to be back with Joe after you've dated other people then give it a shot. But, dont sit around waiting on him; it might be forever and then you've let all that valuable time slip by. Have fun while he's figuring things out (and kicking himself in the ass for letting someone so great get away.)
from princesstosh :
congrats on the new place. It's so exciting, huh? Oh and i meant to say something the other day, but dont question what is wrong with you. it is something that he has that he needs to figure out. You are perfect!
from meteroa07 :
Hey! Congrats on moving in the new house/apartment (Don't know what it is). Hopefully you are right about Joe and he is kicking himself now. I don't doubt that he is! Hope all is welL!
from ydwtk :
congrats on your own place! if you can, collapse your boxes and store them at the back of a closet . . . you'll need them again some day.
from princesstosh :
You're back in the saddle again. Ok, so maybe that was a little TOO Texan, but whatever. Just enjoy yourself. You are right about being young, and if its meant to be, it will but for the time being...enjoy life.
from gonzostar :
oh no. i'm so sorry. :(
from liquid-mojo :
Sorry to hear about the breakup (or pending breakup). Ending or changing a long-term relationship can be tough. I know, I've been there, but I think honesty is always the best thing no matter how difficult it may be. I do how everything works out for the best though.
from sketchedpony :
She started having trouble breathing. We called the paramedics. After they got here, her heart stopped. They weren't able to restart it.
from princesstosh :
Well, I hope that whatever change there has been, that yall can work back up to what you had. It almost just sounds like he doesnt have time for the attention he needs to give you. Does this change your mind about your apartment and collge?
from princesstosh :
Oh Ann-Marie. I'm so sorry. Is it a real breakup, or is he still not giving you the attention you deserve? Hugs, I'm here for you.
from ydwtk :
((ann-marie))
from sunnflower :
Hi from Suburban Island and thanks for adding my diary to your favorite list! Sorry about how it's going with Joe but maybe it's clearing the way for someone else to come into your life. And you are right - going backwards in a relationship is very hard. I wouldn't be thrilled about it either.
from sketchedpony :
OMG, I'm so sorry about you and Joe. My mom wasn't sick. Just to say.
from sketchedpony :
My mom died last night.
from sketchedpony :
Thanks for the note. I just really want him to be the one, you know? I know it is foolish but I don't want to loose him. I don't want this to end.
from madamewolf :
hey girly...*sighs* he should call ....he should just suck it up get a pair of bloody balls and tell you whats on his mind...okay i said my piece and i dont think you're over analyzing i do the same thing...most ppl do. Anyway just try and get your mind off joe. I'm here for ya if ya need me i can drag myself away from the computer for ya i promise lol. *hugz* i hope he calls soon and i hope u do get to go to dallas...u can sleep in the same bed and...NOT HAVE SEX!! i know its an amazing thought but trust me it can be done! but leave it to a man not to think about that... okay im done ranting on joe i just dont like seeing u hurt.
from princesstosh :
5 days is entirely too long. Call him and see what the hell is up. You deserve more than that.
from princesstosh :
5 days is entirely too long. Call him and see what the hell is up. You deserve more than that.
from sketchedpony :
It's sometimes hard to be happy when you get what you want.
from sketchedpony :
I hope you two get things figured out.
from days-ahead :
If I were there I'd give you a big hug. But since I'm not then a cyber hug will have to do. (((hugs))) I am rooting for ya. Hopefully things will get better for ya soon.
from juniperhexum :
the "wanna hear something weird entry" just hit me right in the gut. I don't even know how to respond except to say WOW and damn girl, you're a wonderful person.
from jensanimals :
Hey, Just thought I would drop a note that I am back!! Congrats on the Apartment. Sorry things are not that great right now. I am sure that everything will improve soon. Hugs
from lime-reviews :
Your review has been posted at <<http://lime-reviews.diaryland.com/almostgrow.html>> Feel free to check it out, thanks for submitting, and I hope I offered you enough advice to change that score, feel free to ask for a re-review soon, I'd love to do it.
from ydwtk :
Where do you write for YOU and not your readers? If there is no place else, then do it here! Joe likes/loves what he sees in you. If that's a quiet, uncomplaining companion -- is that what you really are? If you can't share your concerns (the ones you have when you're apart from him at least) with him now, what's going to change to make such sharing possible later? Learn/practice how to share your concerns and feelings with your man . . . or you will always be frustrated in this relationship!
from meteroa07 :
Aww Ann-Marie, you aren't boring at all. I love reading your diary because it takes me into your world and I get a little taste of what someone elses life is. Your life is defiantly less boring then mine. At least you have something or someone to write about besides what boring and drab stuff you did today haha. Oh man, anyways, you aren't boring! So there.! - Sam
from princesstosh :
I'm thinking that since you're moving for school and all that god might not take it out on you so harshly if you had to tell a semi-lie. You know, just sayin. Watch me get struck by lightening now. But anyways, again, congratulations. It will be very exciting for you. Pangs of homesickness every once in a while but nothing too unbearable!!
from days-ahead :
Had to laugh a little bit about the God thing. Congrats on getting the apartment. I can only imagine how excited you are. That's GREAT news. Good luck with everything.
from bongo282 :
Hey girl! I am glad to see that Joe is starting to see how important you are in his life. I hope it will get better when you move down there. Talk to you soon.
from sketchedpony :
I believe so. Have to check though.
from sketchedpony :
I hope you have a good time with Joe.
from princesstosh :
Hehehe silverware and a futon. I think the first things I bought were silverware, dishes,candles (because you know candles can make anywhere feel home like) and towels. You can never have too many towels because they dissapear like socks do. You never know where they go, they're just gone!
from excuseyou :
Thanks for the offer. I've thrown one up for now...it may change ;)
from excuseyou :
I feel like my template is a little too...naked? Empty. Something. It needs something. I'll figure it out later I'm sure.
from ydwtk :
The last year of HS was tough enough (that "a" word, for instance). Your first college semester will be more than enough to keep you busy with studying . . . you'll have to stetch your schedule to find time for Joe, not the other way around! Besides, you'll be back visiting Merak and 'rents often too! Good advice -- put the ann-marie personal touch stamp on your new place and enjoy it hugely! (imagining you becoming so adept at cooking for yourself that you'll laugh at your earlier misgivings on the subject) :)
from princesstosh :
oh Ann-Marie! Your first place! How exciting! Get busy thinking of ways to decorate it, and make it your home instead of thinking of Joe and the negativity he is bringing to the situation. Do what makes you happy! Congrats!!
from excuseyou :
I love your template. Now you have me wanting to change mine! I will return the favor and add you, and also get up to date on your journal today. So don't feel weird if someone read your entire journal, it's just me. Thanks for the note, glad to know I'm not alone.
from lousrose :
hey hon, thanks for the offer. right now i'm a little busy w/ schoolwork to think about a layout, but i will check out your site, and once i get the time and if i want to make the one i was working on, i'll leave you a message! :) *hugs* much love! <3 p.s. sorry we don't get to talk as much anymore, you're still in my thoughts.
from bongo282 :
I like your new templete. I know how you feel with Joe. I don't think it's just Joe though. I have a sense that guys hate the phone. I hope things settle down soon for you 2 and good luck.
from meteroa07 :
Well the image looks just as good as it did on your old template! Even better!
from meteroa07 :
Hey there! I really like the new template! I love when templates have moving things, it's so cool. Isn't that "I love you always and forever" image from your old diary address? It looks familiar hhehe! Anyways, it's a awesome layout!
from madamewolf :
hey love the layout ;) Don't beat yourself up for wanting to see Joe more. Anybody would feel the same way. *hugz*
from princesstosh :
hey, thanks for the note. You may be behind but basically all that has happened is we moved to a smaller town, closer to where i work. Its where we grew up and went to high school together. We live next door from his brother and family and across town from his mom and dad. So far, so good. Well, except for all of our appliances going wacko. Oh, and yes my template isnt working. i dont host my own images, diva designs does and right now shes out of whack. I'm thinking of giving up and just purchasing a gold membership.
from princesstosh :
Hey there! God, Life can be so confusing at times, huh? My only real advice for you Ann-Marie is to take care of yourself. If you truly want to move then go for it. Do whats best for you and stop worrying about everyone else. You will take yourself the places you need to go! If I did it on my own, so can you! Dont get so down this early...life will throw bumps at you forever and ever. The trick is how fast you get up, dust your ass off and move on. Best of luck and congrats on graduation!
from banefulvenus :
P.S. Congratulations!!! :)
from banefulvenus :
Hey! Thanks so much for the kind note. You truly made my day! :)
from jensanimals :
Congratulations on the Graduation!! Glad you made it through Algebra. That is the one class that my graduating depended on, too.(a LONG time ago.lol) Anyways, hope the ceremony goes well. Don't let it get you that your dad is there. Like you said, you don't HAVE to talk/see to him.
from sketchedpony :
Congradulations on graduating. So glad that you got through algebra, that class is a beast. Well, math in general is. And now it is time for all those corny cliched lines such as you have your whole life ahead of you, you are the future, and other such nonsense. Hopefully, you can make it through all of that and have a great summer without having to think about going back to high school next year.
from lousrose :
hey hon, BIG congratulations! i'm so proud & really happy for you! *hugs* i can't wait til the day i can experience what you're feeling right now, i hope you are basking in the glory of freedom haha. i'm sorry about your dad, but try not to let it spoil your great day. you have made an amazing accomplishment and should celebrate, and get drunk! LOL j/k. :) *hugs* great job hon :) xoxo whit
from liquid-mojo :
I defintily have to get to work with some of those things. ;) But yeah thanks, hopefully the internship will help in my future career. =)
from chickpea981 :
GIRL! Next time YOU slyly unbutton YOUR jeans and maybe he'll get the clue. And if not then no more action for him! It's the golden rule - do unto others... etc. Anf FYI, next time you go to update, highlight the entire thing and right click to copy. It will save you numerous headaches, cuz whne d-land fucks up, you just go to add an entry, right click, and hit paste and VOILA! the entry is there. I started doing that a year ago and I stopped losing entries. But yeah, your boy? Kick some ass!
from liquid-mojo :
Well gee, there's actually a few things I wanna give you, but maybe its better for me to ask what you want... ;)
from liquid-mojo :
Oh yeah, well any guy is lucky to have you, so there! =p Actually yeah, Joe is like really a lucky guy... But anyway thanks. When is you b-day anyway? I should keep track of these things. ;)
from liquid-mojo :
Indeed, the countdown timer is ticking... ;)
from liquid-mojo :
OMG, my baby is growing up! ;) Change is good and I think you will do just fine...
from jensanimals :
Wow, it really sounds like you have planned out so much. Don't worry, everything will turn out great. Good luck!!
from sketchedpony :
I'm glad that it looks so good for you and Joe.
from sketchedpony :
The love match is here: http://love.astrology.com/lovematch.html. I really like the astrology on that site. It's so correct.
from juniperhexum :
I do so love when a random passerby leaves me a note! It leaves me full of warm fuzzy feelings. Spank you very much. I will have to come back here and read a few more. 2 entries in and I think I like you.
from almost-grown :
just clearing some of my favorites that i dont read or that seldom update. yours just happened to be one of them.
from ydwtk :
I'm not on your list -- I know I seldom update, but you no longer read me?
from liquid-mojo :
Woah, long time no talk. =/ How have you been?
from dr-evil45 :
Got guy problems? Go to http://menrbastards.diaryland.com and let us know about them! Then pass this site on to all your friends, and heck, even link us! Spread the word! Thanks!
from lanne :
Sometimes it's hard to let go of the one we 'thought' we loved! Even when more happiness is facing us head on, we tend to regress to the past. I think it's natural to miss him, but dont' let it interfer with the good you have now!!! Hugs, LA
from b0b0-review :
Your review is up!
from jensanimals :
Is everything is Ok?Haven't seen you here for a while. Hope things are well. Take Care
from madam-rose :
Hi girl is everything okay? I haven't seen you around school or online in awhile. So I wanted to see if you're okay and to see how you are. *hugz*
from jensanimals :
Glad you got a plan even if it is short term. That is more than alot of new graduates have. Hope you have a good time at Prom.
from madam-rose :
I hope u have fun at prom. Be careful with all the cops out there i know u and your friends like to go places and drink but just remember cops are going to be out everywhere saturday and sunday morning. believe me i have the inside scoop lol.
from sexyoldman :
Hi, I enjoy your diary. I want to say something that will probably upset you, but I'm a guy who has seen his 40th birthday, so I get the right..lol. Anyway, a guy who is 27 and who has a girlfriend who is 17 is someone who likely has some HUGE problems. You may be the most mature teenager on earth, but he should not be dating a young woman who is so much younger than him. Has he had a relation with any women his own age? Look, I know my advice doesn't mean much, but be very careful(as in avoid at all costs) of adult men who troll the schoolyard for dates. No wonder he didn't want to go to your prom, he SHOULD be embarrassed.
from princesstosh :
Life is so yuck sometimes. I remember being in your exact spot, almost 3 years ago. I was scared to death, but all i wanted to do was just go to some college, just to say i was going. I wasnt interested in it, and well, i guess it showed. But my real point is, take your time finding what you want to do; what makes you happy? One day you'll find your niche and everything will fall into place. Until then, just live day to day and thank god he gave you another day to do whatever it is you want, right or wrong. Oh, and PS--I doubt you could do anything wrong in Merak's eyes~ big sisters are always special!!
from sketchedpony :
I'm sorry everything is so icky for you now. Personally, I think that he should go to your prom, your relationship is your business no one else's.
from madam-rose :
hey long time no talk. well it seems my computer is officially dead dad told me he is going to pack up the cable modem and cancel it. so no more internet not that I could get on lol but computer refuses to work no matter what we do so oh well. Anyway I see I'm not the only one with lack of updates lol. So how is everything?
from princesstosh :
locked for a little bit. email me @ toshajtawn@yahoo.com if u want the stuff. Hope everything is well with you.
from sketchedpony :
I really like the dress.
from vlademir :
hehe... well, we are both back - so you don't have to miss us anylonger.
from dani-lou :
Great dress! I like it. Toodles, Dani.
from startin-over :
yay!!! to cleaning out the fridge. Wanna come clean mine out now? :) I hope you have a grand time at prom. You're gonna post pictures, right? Good!!
from starlight42 :
hey- came across your diary and just wanted to say I liked the email you're sending your ex-whatever. Came off good and sounds like you made a good decision. Also, checked out your designs, I liked the Secrets one.
from jensanimals :
Apparently she did not mind... She ended up spending the night with him and she is coming back over tonight!! If it all went that fast, it ain't gonna last anyways.
from sketchedpony :
But I already have a pretty good idea of what kind of guy I like and that opinion is always being shaped by my interactions with my guy friends.
from sketchedpony :
I'm glad that Joe didn't get mad.
from princesstosh :
The answer is...... *dundundun* Nope, you dont!! SO those football butts are the real thing...
from sketchedpony :
Wow that's really a pain. Bam needs to get things sorted out in his head.
from b0b0-review :
I have added you to the pending. Thank you for the request! I look forward to reviewing your diary.
from jensanimals :
Good Luck on your upcoming review. Another good review site is http://starsearchrv.diaryland.com/
from lanne :
found your link through Dani's site... I enjoyed your entry on a future without you. I don't think it matters your 17 and you feel others might not be interested.. or so you think. It's your journal, your thoughts. If it's important to you, that makes it important period!!
from pacey2052 :
i love your diary, its adorable, plus you have a way with words. i know how you feel, i dont think you can ever totally let someone go that you once loved. Take care :-D <33 x0x Pacey
from sketchedpony :
You can't forget people no matter what they have done. My heart still aches for everyone who has treated me badly. In a way, it means you are a good person because you care about people. I know that it isn't good, but it's hard or impossible to stop.
from madam-rose :
hey im so glad karen is home and u got your car back yay!! good news all around!
from sketchedpony :
You see Joe so much more than I would ever be able to see Ronnie. His parents want him to go to college near them and my parents want me to stay around here because of my medical problems. It won't work.
from vlademir :
Hehe, well, we gt a ton of it up here, I don't mind it around Christmas, but after that - I'm over it.
from princesstosh :
Hes adorable! I know the pink color you are talking about, its like reddish pinkish, and thats totally what we got. I'm so excited. I guess everyone can tell. It's all I talk about. But anyway, I'm so happy that hes getting healthier. Hospitals have taken lots of steps recently to make better NICU units (Or, ours here has, anyway) I bet you can wait to get your hands on him and cuddle him!!! Take care!!!!
from sketchedpony :
The distance kills me. I wasn't happy having a boyfriend that I couldn't see.
from startin-over :
I am on right now. Can you get on, too?
from startin-over :
aww ... What a cutie he is!! I tried emailing you the passwords, but it came back saying something was up with my IP addy and it couldn't be sent. Don't know what is up with that. Do you have another email addy? :)
from vlademir :
Awwww....He's a cutie.
from jensanimals :
Aww. How cute! Glad that they are both improving.
from sketchedpony :
He is cute. At least he doesn't look all squished like vaginally delivered babies do.
from madam-rose :
Awwww hes so cute! im glad both baby and karen are doing okay now.
from sketchedpony :
I really hope that they are both okay. I'm here if you need someone to talk to.
from etherealrevu :
Hello. You requested a review, oh, probably a good year ago for your diary soulseekerz. Your name finally came up on the list. Would you like for us to review this diary? Just leave us a note and let us know!
from madam-rose :
awww i am so sorry to hear that. can anything be done? If her blood is full of posion is it possible to do a transfussion or whatever they call it. I know you mentioned it affecting her liver will she need a transplant or anything that major? I am praying. I am so sorry your family doesn't deserve this. My the God(s) be with you all. *hugs* if you need me I am here okay. dont hestiate to ask if you need anything at all just call.
from princesstosh :
Sending lots of prayers and good wishes your way. XOXO

I want you to know that I am praying for you and your family, that the baby will become stronger, and that your sister will recover. I don't know if it brings you any comfort, but I have great faith in prayer, and great faith in the prayer of children especially, so I have asked my 6 year old daughter to make sure she remembers your family in her prayers. I explained to her the situation so that she understood what is going on (she is a very mature little girl with much love and compassion for others). She told me she would say lots of prayers today for your family, "every time I say a prayer I will remember them", she says. *big hugs* You are in my thoughts!
from startin-over :
Your whole family will be in my prayers. Take care!! (((hugs)))
from almostsure :
I hope Karen is ok! You're in my thoughts.
from flyinby :
Congratulations to you and yours! So happy about the new baby brother! Babies are loads of fun, it's great that you are old enough to appreciate how wonderful babies are! :D When I was a kid, (as in 4), my baby brother was born and I wanted my mom to take him back to the hospital! lol
from jensanimals :
Glad to hear that he is doing so well. How is Karen doing now that she has delivered? Can't wait to see pics. Congrats to them and to you "BIG SIS"
from madam-rose :
joe just sounds better and better lol. I am glad karen and baby are doing ok so far. I hope everything goes well.
from madam-rose :
ty. how are karen and the baby? how r u doing?
from vlademir :
Awwww... was hoping to hear how mom & baby were doing. Hope if she had him last night all went well. Chow
from jensanimals :
Aww.Good Luck to Karen and your Mom.Hope she has a quick labor. Hope you have a nice lunch and have fun with Joe.
from madam-rose :
I am glad the baby is doing ok. I hope Karen gets feeling a lot better.
from flyinby :
I'm only 5 months along. :)
from sketchedpony :
Hope that the baby is okay when he's born.
from madam-rose :
hehe me too thats the one i used but i think ill just ex that idea completely. but ty
from madam-rose :
awww hun well i hope it all goes well. if u end up stayin alone all weekend u know where i live and my number lol
from princesstosh :
Oh no! I'm sure all will be fine but i'll keep my fingers and toes crossed for you. And, any other crossable body parts, LOL. By the way I just loved the template of the baby. It was so sweet, and something you can keep and show him once he's older! What a good big sister you'll be! Take care!
from flyinby :
Oh no! How frightening for the mom-to-be! I'm sending my prayers her way, and praying also that the little boy is born with a strong will to survive. It's rough stuff, being born that early! *hugs*
from madam-rose :
I left you an IM but not sure if you got it or not. Anyway I am sorry to hear that. I hope it turns out ok. I will be praying for you all.
from sketchedpony :
My mom's blood presure was really high when she was having me. She and the baby will be fine.
from madam-rose :
ty for takin my survey!
from jensanimals :
The new layouts are great. There are a few that I want to use. Gonna wait until I am sick of my Blue eyes one. Here is the link for another directory for you.(not sure if they will allow you or not) http://big-list.diaryland.com/templates.html BTW, will you do a custom? I have a few ideas that I would like. No rush and I can host my own pics. Let me know.
from sketchedpony :
Oh I get it. Sorry, dense today.
from madam-rose :
lol look at your bl on yahoo
from sketchedpony :
The images that you have hosted on angelfire will make the account close. They don't let you direct link AT ALL. I've had my accounts closed because of that.
from princesstosh :
Hey, almost forgot to tell you. List yourself as a designer under the diaryland yellow pages. here is the URL (http://yellow-pages.diaryland.com/designs.html) that might get ya some more traffic.
from madam-rose :
aww stupid insurance companies. i told u id host it if u wanted.
from princesstosh :

from princesstosh :
I know, men can be big babies. And, I understand your situation with the annoying friend. I've always been a giving person, and anytime someone asked something of me, I'd do it, until I realized I was doing more for other people than they were for me. I didnt feel appreciated. Folding someone elses laundry? I would have definetly done it back in the day, now, I'd probably go chasing after them yelling "are you kidding me?!" Just make sure to not let people stomp on you. But, dont close them off completely, everyone makes mistakes.
from iluvjessee :
Heya! I found you through sketchedpony's diary. :) I like the design you have on it.
from almostsure :
Hey, I was randomly searching for good diaries, and I clicked on yours because you name was similar to mine. It turns out I really love your diary and your writing style. I'm adding you to my favorites, if you don't mind. ~anna~
from sketchedpony :
Okay, that person really scares me. Three months of music isn't that bad, I've had people lose years of it. People are rather insane.
from sketchedpony :
People like that drive me insane. I have a couple old friends who used to be that annoying. I just couldn't stand them anymore.
from vlademir :
yvw...have fun & happy searching :)
from vlademir :
I use the WebFerret to search for most of mine. Its a great search engine.
from enchancea :
I like your layout, its very relaxing
from sketchedpony :
On my computer, the popups don't show.
from vlademir :
Just read your comment on Madame Rose's dairy...& you are very welcome.I am always on the look out for new images.
from sketchedpony :
I really like your new layout. Right now the calendar links don't go to anything though.
from sketchedpony :
Sorry to hear about the virus attack.
from sketchedpony :
I have been a bit blocked on updating too. It's sad.
from jensanimals :
Thanks for the note. I am going to talk to the Teacher when we go Monday and see what she suggests.
from gonzostar :
so, i stopped by after the note you left in my guestbook, and read the whole thing. i was sad that you changed diaries because i wanted to read stuff about you liking joe so i could get all excited when you got together. anyways. but if it was much longer, i guess i wouldn't have read every entry, huh? so yeah, i'm adding you to my favorites now. glad you randomly clicked on my banner! =) ~holly (oh, and i'm leaving a note instead of signing the book because my work computer is really restricted and blocks sites).
from operaghost- :
Ok, yea, after reading a bit of your diary, it's pretty cool.
from sketchedpony :
I have always wanted to learn Tarot. I'd need a deck though. And time to learn. Sucks about your past, I understand why you don't want to remember it.
from operaghost- :
About your banner- Why specify all three characteristics? Each implies the other. Anyone who calls herself cute is obviously preppy and easy.
from emeraldblaze :
hey, you asked what d-day is. Well if you read a few entries back I say something about how by then end of february somthing had to give one way or another. So to me D-day stands for decision day.
from startin-over :
Thanks for my awesome layout. You're the greatest. I love it ~ THANK YOU!!! :)
from madam-rose :
i say just concentrate on you.
from sketchedpony :
Problems always happen. It just shows how the relationship will last with how you last through you're troubles now.
from sketchedpony :
I told him that I need to be happy on my own before I can think about being in a relationship again. That's basically the main thing about it.
from jensanimals :
What an ass!! You are so much better without him. BTW, Thanks for the note. I am a little better.
from madam-rose :
it just dawned on me what song your entry reminded me of Fighter...or also "I will survive" hehe go u
from sketchedpony :
It's good that you aren't mad at him. That's really healthy. Sorry that he said all that to you though.
from madam-rose :
no wonder u didnt sound so good on phone *hugs* im sorry hun u r better off without him. too good for him.
from madam-rose :
temps look great. lol i was gonna do one with the mermaid in a bit lol im workin on gettin my design site up.
from sketchedpony :
Thank you so much for the note. I guess I'll just have to wait to see if I can find 'him'.
from sketchedpony :
It's okay that you haven't been able to update. I understand the feeling.
from lousrose :
hey hon *hugs* i love you. those valentine pics are cute! :)
from madam-rose :
lol i just saw your profile with the pic of u that doesnt look like u is it an old pic or sumfin? good luck with finding the right one.
from madam-rose :
ya i like that one too...i think i have an idea of a layout for the mermaid but not sure.
from sketchedpony :
Good pictures. I'm glad that you had a good valentine's day.
from jensanimals :
I used to live in Vegas but only for about 2 months. I was pregnant and had a 4 year old so I never got to go see anything or gamble. So, this is going to be great. I know where everything is, so at least I wont get lost.lol.
from sexyoldman :
I'm glad he's your "ex". There are much better guys out there.
from sexyoldman :
Thanks for the nice note and saying hi. I hope you stop by again...and I'll try to live up the favorite rating..lol!
from sketchedpony :
I'm really glad that you don't think that sex is everything in a relationship because it really isn't. I hope that Joe's brother is ok.
from emeraldblaze :
well I have no clue , why you find my little pace so wonderful, but think you for leave the note! (and adding me)
from madam-rose :
hi and no the baby isnt premmature. it was full term. and yes its cruel...going to have a good cry about it tonight probly...she lives in dallas...but hey what can ya do *shrugs*
from sketchedpony :
Well it wouldn't be horrible if you and Joe didn't sleep together, waiting would probably make it better.
from watty :
Thanks so much for visiting and writing such a thoughtful note! I'm just starting to read your diary, and am enjoying it so far. Have a great week! =)
from sketchedpony :
It's probably better that you told her that she wasn't helping. I think that being honest is always best even if it's sometimes a bit mean.
from enchancea :
I made my faery pictures
from black-gloss :
Wow! That feels like me, lol. I feel more used then appreciated! It sucks! loads! :(
from sketchedpony :
I don't know how you feel but I'm going to probably end up being a driver like you. I'm sorry that they don't appreciate you.
from sketchedpony :
That's horrible that they didn't leave their website. I despise people who have no spine.
from flyinby :
I would never have dignified that comment in your guestbook with any sort of response. People who see racism everywhere are often hiding their own racism. They have persecution issues. You handled it well, though. :)
from princesstosh :
You poor thing! (I know sympathy sometimes helps, other times its annoying so i'll keep it short and sweet) Sorry to hear of all the bad things, but remember when it cant get any worse, it only gets better. Take care!
from sketchedpony :
Sorry to hear that you got in a car accident. If we are still in contact when I get into my first accident, we can commiserate together.
from flyinby :
I would have KILLED to have a guy who wanted to wait . . . *sigh* Seems like any guy I knew wanted some, and if I didn't give it, didn't want me. Hence why I didn't date much! lol
from sketchedpony :
It's actually not that bad of a picture of you. You two look really sweet together.
from ydwtk :
Congrats on job! :) Maybe Joe will take you somewhere prom night, dinner and dancing. Would you like that?
from sketchedpony :
First of all congrats about your job. (Experience has told me to start with a good thing.) Maybe you shouldn't go to prom. If Joe can't go, then you will be stuck to spend your time watching your friends with whatever dates they managed to scrounge up and you will no have an ounce of fun even if you do manage to find a dress that fits you. It's not that much of a high school right of passage. People don't become completely pathetic if they don't go... okay so my parents may be a bit weird but I would pin that on their upbringing not on their lack to go to their senior prom. So all in all, cheer up. You only have about 5 months left and then you won't have to deal with high school anymore.
from sketchedpony :
Yes it drives me nuts how everyone seems to think that what goes on in high school is the most important thing in the world. It is definetly not! I really want to start exercising again. I really felt good after last summer. Now maybe I can since I feel better.
from lousrose :
hey honey long time no talk, i miss you! i need to update my buddy list and add this diary to it- i'll do that now. i can't believe you were almost raped by a big black guy. LMAO every woman's worst nightmare!! well i'm glad you are okay!! *hugs* hit me up with a note when you can and tell me about how you're doing and how joe is ;) love you!! <3 whit.
from sketchedpony :
By the way, your previous link doesn't work.
from xwords :
you've been quoted, dear. http://xwords.diaryland.com/fullyletgo.html
from princesstosh :
Well, I was hoping you werent dead. Really I figured you went and eloped, and were on your way to a Happily ever after ending :) Glad to know you're okay though. I'm the princess of busy~ dont worry...you'll get to relax soon enough! Take care!
from princesstosh :
Havent heard from you lately~ just wondering what your up to. Hope everything is well with you! Take care :)
from anglewings :
Happy Holidays, was out looking came across your diary. Have to say i like the way it looks. Latezzzz
from princesstosh :
Happy Holidays to you too! I love reading about how your dream with Joe is finally coming true & cherish your senior year~ some of my best memories thus far have been from mine. Take care!
from liquid-mojo :
Woah, new diary O.o I suppose I know how it feels. I thought about just starting my diary over from scratch on more than one occasion. I suppose having already paid for a supergold kept me from doing that. Oh and don't worry I don't think I could ever stop rambling even if I wanted to... =p
from mentalblank :
You do what makes YOU happy and fuck the rest of them. It is your life and you're right...they're your decisions to make. It's better to suffer the hurt of failure than to wonder what could have been. You live your own life and you'll end up happier and without as many regrets. I'm thinking of you often!
from princesstosh :
That entry reminded me of an entry i did recently. The world would be a much simpler place if everyone left their nose in their own buisness, but it doesnt always work that way. I think one of the toughest parts of life is standing up for yourself, knowing that others will only condemn you for it. As far as sex goes~ everyone has different opions on who you should do it with & when. I always reminded myself that no matter how much I wanted to do something, I'd know when the time was right for me & I did. Listen to your heart as well as your mind, and if every fiber in you tells you this is right for you, then screw what the rest of the world thinks. Most of the time what other people would percieve as bad choices for themselves may be different for another person. It makes us individuals. I think that you need to throw out the "almost" part of your diary & just stick to grown. The people who are tormenting you w/their opinions are the ones that need the almost. Stick to your insticts, think things over, and do what makes you the happiest. Im here if needed~ Oh, and sorry I had to practically write a novel to get my point across :)
from mentalblank :
Girl, I so wish I could make all of this go away for you. I wish I could figure it all out and make it happy and easy on you...but I can't. It's part of growing up and it sucks ass, but you WILL get through it! I'm pulling for you! The wedding is in three weeks, so I'm putting up a temporary hiatus for reviews. I just can't do it. I hope you'll have me back in November when life will have settled down a bit. But with the wedding and moving two weeks later, my hands are tied. I hope you don't feel like I'm abandoning my responsibilities at the site, I just have to put SOMETHING on the back burner now. Miss our chats, kiddo. Hang in there.
from princesstosh :
Theres nothing more painful than the curves that life throws us from time to time w/our emotions. I too, have to think with my heart, as well as my mind, & all too often my mind wins over my heart. Its a never ending battle. But~ I think that in your case you are a very smart, level-headed chica. If being with him gets to be too much, you'll know. Loving sometimes means hurting too, as awful as that is. I wish you the best of luck & you know I'll come back to check on you everytime you update. If you ever need anything, you know where to find me~
from mentalblank :
Hey Girl, I know I've been away lately (the new job), but I want you to know that I think of you often. I miss our chats and hope to catch you online soon. Hang in there kiddo!
from princesstosh :
Hey there, I was just reading along and stumbled upon your diary. You remind me so much of myself that its almost scary. This is an ace diary, I'll definetly be coming back, if that is okay with you of course =) Take care, and Keep on Keepin on!
