Happy New Year!
from shortst101 :
Hi there.....seems we just can't get away from here can we. Although I haven't written in a long time, I still come here. Figure one day I'll start writing again. It's nice to hear from you. Was wondering how you were doing. Hugssssssss my old friend.
from glorycloud :
Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year!
from sunnyrain828 :
My husband got into a similar car accident a couple years ago, although he didn't scrape up the entire passenger side, just the passenger side corner. So you're not alone in your managing to run into stationery objects. ;) Hope you get to feeling better soon. Steve and I are both fighting sore throats. We're keeping them at bay with vitamin C but I still feel that scratchy throat threatening. :P
from orderwine :
thank you lobz, appreciated muchly. xxo
from hadassah :
Thanks, I appreciate your kind words to me. God has been very gracious to me through all of this. I am blessed and doing amazingly well.
from sunnyrain828 :
My husband and I really like the ESV Reformation Study Bible.
from caprihype :
Thanks again. You're notes, really help me. Sometimes, I get worried that there's only so much I can do. But at the end of the day, I can stick it out and let them grow and make there own decisions. My oldest, I fear will blame me more but I will take it, I love her so much. It just gets hard at times but it will get better.
from caprihype :
Hi there. I saw that you read and left me a note. No idea when, but I am responding now. Thank you for reading and stop by anytime. I am struggling with being a single mom with two girls, one who blames me. But as times goes, we will get better. Thank you.

I'd say yes to the tag along except that my posts are not of a very positive nature as of late.

from shadesofmi :
Thank you! It was truly a pleasure catching up. You write so eloquently and from the heart. You always put a smile on my face!
from hadassah :
Thanks for your note. Please keep us in your prayers for sure. God bless you.
from hadassah :
I can so see you being a great sunday school teacher. That's awesome. God bless you:)
from tobehis :
Yeah, my parents have always said that once we move out, we can't come back...just because everything's different once you move out, and the dymanics would never work. So they're not in any rush for us to get out, either. We can stay as long as we want...and I don't see any reason to move out. Thankfully, they don't charge rent, like some parents do. Now that I have a "steady" job, they've started talking about budgeting and helping with some of my bills, but nothing like that has started yet. I'm very blessed with easy-going, lenient parents who still pay nearly all of my living costs, even though I am 23 and should probably be paying my own way. O:-)
from sunnyrain828 :
Isn't it crazy how the minute we try to get closer to God, temptation and our own fallen nature just flies in the face of it? Spiritual warfare at its finest. :P Just remember that you aren't doing this to win God's favor, but that God is already holding onto you and never lets go. Deuteronomy 31:6; John 10:28. And I do agree with Amy...Health comes first!
from tobehis :
Ha, I'm not actually sharing this entry with Mom. It's a little too sarcastic for that (*angel face*), and, as I mentioned toward the end of the entry, I'd never be able to explain it so she'd understand. I'd get defensive and she'd hold to her views, and we'd just have a big clash. It's better to just let it go. Thanks for the kind words. May you be equally blessed, because you are continually blessing me. The planned entry for last night, in which you were going to be linked, was in reference to your hope that I would get some time to relax in the midst of my busy week, and I was going to happily tell you that I am getting some relaxing time for myself. Monday I came home and watched a movie while eating popcorn, and after that I had time to relax with a book for a couple of hours before bed. Last night I got to catch up online. Tonight, I'm catching up online again and I plan to watch a Christmas movie when I'm done here. "Joy to the world! The Lord is come!" Merry Christmas, David! ~ Wrote all that before reading your latest entry. Your veiled reference to Mom made me smile. I don't mind if you mention me. LOL.
from shadesofmi :
Stopped bye to say hello...again. Hope all is well with you!
from hadassah :
yes, I've been there believe me. I can relate.
from orderwine :

new shoes, new place.
from stardumb :
thank you, your words are lovely and opportune. grace & love.
from shadesofmi :
Stopped bye to day "Hi"...
from hadassah :
Thanks for the update:)It's always nice to catch up.
from hadassah :
Thanks for stopping by David. We're good here. How are you doing? How was your summer?
from shadesofmi :
It was refreshing to rerad your thoughts as you write so eloquently. Thank you for making me smile!
from stardumb :
thank you so much lobz, be blessed also.
from shadesofmi :
I thought it went very well. Was suppose to hear something this past Friday but didn't. How are you doing these days? Mi
from stardumb :
thank you lobo, for the note, i really appreciate it... take care also.
from shadesofmi :
*HUGS* You express yourself well. I am with ya on the long winter, it needs to end soon as I am tired of cold and damp. I don't handle cold well these days. Keep smilin!
from shadesofmi :
what is the title of the book....sounds like something I would like to read.....
from shadesofmi :
Failure is a harsh word....Being human is better. We have those moments we regret but we learn from them and take whatever God is teaching us and grow. Keep your chin up! You are an inspiration.
from xokaythenx :
Thanks, as always, for your thoughtful comment. You said that there was so far to go just to feel good about the life you're living... do you not feel good about it right now? Isn't prayer itself kind of leaning toward chance? If God happens to listen, and if he happens to think you're worthy of the prayer, and etc. It's all one big chance. What's the point of praying? It seems to be more of a reassurance thing than anything else, and if that's the case we may as well be talking to ourselves rather than spend time in prayer. The thing about pasts and leaving them behind, is that they tend to haunt. Maybe God will look the other way, but as imperfect humans we can never really lay them to rest.
from shadesofmi :
Thank you for your kind words, understanding and encouragement. It was a relief to finally get rid of it.
from shadesofmi :
Well said!
from shadesofmi :
Hope this finds you and your family on the mend...Take care...XOXO
from shadesofmi :
Congrats at making it through. You are a better person than I! God bless.
from shadesofmi :
How are you doing? Just dropping by to say "hi". Hi. :P
from hugz-n-snugz :
Lobo, I just got the worst news Church is cancelled tonight because of the snow :( I was so upset because I was looking forward to tonight... but well... I guess you can not change a small towns ways... lol so now I am going to go outside and take a photo in the snow lol :D
from hugz-n-snugz :
You too. Good luck with your project. I really love doing those projects for self discovery and to become closer to the Lord and yourself... I sometimes get a little silly but all in all I mostly get them done... I look forward to hearing about the out come of your project :D
from hugz-n-snugz :
I just post a introduction to Lobo for you... so you could see my silly boy lol... thought you might like that :D and Thank you :D I added you... :D pop in anytime... I am going to start my 30 day challenge today too :D
from hugz-n-snugz :
Hello Lobo21 :D Yes, I really have a husky puppy named Lobo :D He is 3 months old my friend Gwen gave him to me for Christmas. I was very lucky to get him. I will put a photo up on my diary for you to see him :D I don't mind you popping in from time to time at all. I was wondering if you mind if I add you to my list of favorate diaries just so I can pop in and read yours sometimes too :D Have a great day :D
from xokaythenx :
Thanks! I think, though, after one has spent too much time in a certain place, it consumes them, the one becomes the other and there's no distinguishing between the two. Like chocolate syrup sitting In a glass of milk. You don't have to stir it, it'll just eventually become one. Anyway, your extensive list of new years changes looks like it's coming along nicely; you must be so proud of yourself. That was, and still is, quit a daunting list!!
from shadesofmi :
Is there something crazy going on with dl. I had a new entry than poof it was gone. I started to read yours and poof it was gone.
from shadesofmi :
I meant to leave you a message here but I left it on mine...lol, not enough coffee I guess.
from shadesofmi :
You have quite the list for the New Year, you are a brave man. I have a new pic that I want to go to my old diary when I change it saved under pics. We get our designs from the same place RP designs. I am glad you had a good New Years EVE!
from xokaythenx :
Thank you, for everything. Your kind thoughts, words, and prayers. It means a lot that you even took the time out to write so many words on my behalf. Hope you had a good Christmas, and happy 2011.
from shadesofmi :
I am honored...I struggle with writing but am gonna really try to keep it up. It helps to get ride of the stuff in my head.
from shadesofmi :
You have been here a very long time. I spent a couple hours reading your posts, laughing, smiling and crying with you. You are an amazing person. You had it right, you need to believe and love yourself. Will keep reading!
from shadesofmi :
New to your posts but I do know the feeling. I have been a single mum for 17 years. My 17 year old is the last of four. Everything revolved around them, school, sports etc. Now I am left wondering who I am....
from kateness :
hey thanks for your note! i am so glad you reached out to me. it is amazing what "letting go" requires of us... but yesterday i felt halfway normal, halfway strong. will have to check our your diary xx
from xokaythenx :
Thanks. Hope you've been well. Enjoyed your last entry, it was very powerful, truthful also. Scary to think about. At the same time, I think it's instinctive to hide. It's ingrained in our beings, ever since Adam and Eve hid that first time. There's that line between the ones who hide and the ones who step out into the open. Some spend their entire lives hiding. It's hard to step out.
from hadassah :
Your entry tonight gave me Holy Spirit goose flesh. Very annointed and powerful. Be blessed.
from dinahsoar :
Your note made me smile! How delicious to know that someone who's writing deeply touches me has been secretly reading my diary since November 10th! Add me, please! And thanks for letting me add you!
from dinahsoar :
Found your diary through a buddy's buddy list. I like your honesty. I loved the piece about decorating the outside walls, the waiting room of life for others while you retreat. I also really love that you listed the Bible as your favorite book and The Gospel of John as one of your favorite movies. If you'd like, check out my diary and see if we resonate. Can I add you?
from xokaythenx :
Hey, thanks for the notes. I was studying hardcore all week, so I didn't have any time to write. I enjoyed your note on the paradox of life, that actually is really strange how most of the relevant teachings of the afterlife are also paradoxes. No wonder we humans have such trouble wrapping our minds around things. They really don't make sense at all :P
from stardumb :
lol, oh lobo, i threaten it so much... just because i always feel i've got nothing more to say about it but i guess i always do. to say about multiple things, thx for your encouragement... was looking forward to hearing from you :)
from xokaythenx :
I agree. What I find really "ironic," is people who cast judgments left and right, and then complain about how they hate judgmental people and it's one of their pet peeves. More than anything else, I just have to smile at the contradiction. Makes you wonder about perspective; the way you see something verses the way other people see the exact same thing. Weighing this life against the eternal... that always ties me up in knots. Because compared to eternity, this life right here is barely a drop of sand in an ocean. And yet it has a such a large impact on the outcome of our eternal life, I really don't know what to think about it :S Take care also!
from xokaythenx :
Thanks for your notes. I don't see anything too weird about talking to yourself, I do it all the time! "We are all deserving," it's funny you say that because that is one of my biggest struggles. "If I hold myself up to impossible ideals and continually fail to live them out, how can I possibly look upon others to live up to the near impossible as well?" I love that line. I can't stand judgmental people, and I hate when I find myself acting judgmental. It's easy to forget that we are all flawed and are mutually struggling to overcome our flaws.
from stardumb :
8 days without an entry? i've been working too but i these little things just come up on days, even at work when i'm near a computer... love your faith in God, but you know that already... we truly do share God's very life in Christ, so since sharing one life, we are children, and brothers and sisters also. take care and God bless you with his unsearchable riches! :)
from xokaythenx :
Hello. I like what you said, about wallpapering our walls, it's kind of a funny thought but extraordinarily true. Of course you can add my page, but I am not deserving of such a compliment :P I also agree with your point on irony, it's nice regardless of it's meaning. Would you mind if I also added you? I haven't had time to read any of your entries yet, but I would like to. Based off your notes, you sound intelligent and insightful, qualities which point to good and interesting reading :)
from xokaythenx :
Hello, thanks for the note :) Feel free to stop by whenever, I'd be honored. Take care yourself!
from humanlogic :
You may visit anytime you'd like. Thanks for taking the time to read and leave a note! :)
from duskyhue :
Thank you for the note, you are welcome to revisit any time. You mentioned recently feeling stuck in a routine, I have found that little things like taking a different way home every once in awhile or going to an unusual restaurant can be a welcome break from the norm. :)
from stardumb :
thanks so much lobo, i truly truly appreciate that. It inspires and comforts me. God Bless you also, and all your endeavors! :)
from stardumb :
opened again, thanks for caring. had some rants to write then delete, for the sake of cleansing my internal gut-mud dark and sad feelings. i need to lock up for a few days because i dont know if anyone in the real world reads this. but i'm open again. thanks lob, you rock! :)
from hadassah :
Back to school eh? Jake started kindergarten. He loves it. Ihave a dislocated rib from him jumping all over me the other day. Rather painful. Oh well this to shall pass. Hope you're good. You're in my thoughts. It's amazing how time passes and our kids grow up on us.
from jondavid2010 :
Thanks David. I appreciate you reading. Peace.
from witty-remark :
Thank you. Drop by as often as you like. Open books can't shut people out.
from hadassah :
disregard. Locking won't stop someone leaving notes
from hadassah :
I had to lock up someone's leaving disgusting notes just let me know if you want my password.
from glorycloud :
thank you for the note-be blessed!
from hadassah :
love shouldn't be forced or feel like your having teeth pulled to make it happen. if you don't feel you have time for love then maybe you aren't needing it, or wanting it enough. it's a tricky one.
from glorycloud :
David-thank you for the note-I read some of your diary this morning-what can I say but we have to keep seeking the Lord no matter what befalls us in this fleeting existence-the Lord bless! Jonny
from hadassah :
too funny.... I think you may have meant Robins donuts LOL
from hadassah :
anope Timmys actually. LOL
from hadassah :
singing went really well. it makes quitting smoking sooooo worth it. On another note. Do you know of something that is going on that I don't? Ghost left me a odd note and I am wondering if he's talking about something to do with you?
from hadassah :
yes it sure does. The world could stand to have a lot more happy endings.
from stardumb :
hey david, i go by a ministy called the living stream ministy lsm.org the boadcast archives are excellent, they are radio prodcasts on every book of the bible-- so rich and full of life, try starting with Genesis. that is especially excellent! i meet in a church called "the church in _____ (fill in locality)" there are churches like it all around and probably in your locality too, i'm sure you can find out online or at the website, or by emailing them if you find their boadcasts helpful. it really is the richest most excellent ministry i have yet to receive!!!! God bless, i hope you check it out!!! :)
from stardumb :
Thank you David, really appreciate your kind words! Just walking back toward the light i guess, it's never easy when you've been hiding under your blankets for some time.. thanks! :)
from stardumb :
hey lobo, i think i meant that first step being that initial confession of sins and admittance that Jesus is the Son of God who died for them and being re-born with his resurrection life within your spirit. of course, the work is emmense and i heard a preacher say about following Jesus that "you will suffer more than you've ever suffered before." but i believe once you are saved, you can never lose your salvation and the Lord has a hold on you forever, however long the leash is.. you will be with him in Eternity. Be blessed also love! :)
from hadassah :
Loved your entry tonight. Oddly I have rekindled my love of books lately. I've read 5 books in 4 days.Looking forward to my next visit to the library.
from stardumb :
thank you lobo, really appreciate you comment. take care. and let God ;)
from stardumb :
thank you. added you as a fav! the Lord is in our spirit and also our Guide. :)
from hadassah :
Thanks David. I sure wish you lived closer.
from dietcokegirl :
Thanks so much for your kind words. I do read them, and I always mean to respond, but sometimes I respond only in my head and never actually click the "leave note" button. Sometimes i think the world would run better if it could run by mental messages alone. But anyway .. Thanks again for everything you've said. Trying to keep my head up and keep moving forward. All I really can do. I hope you're doing the same -- in whatever journey your life is currently undertaking. :)
from corposant :
To order my books you can e-mail me, but I don't have anything available for online sales at this time. I will be starting up production again in late August, printing new copies of The Agate Hinge and Other Poems, and A Penchant for the Ferruginous. Currently I am working on the typography for The Wife of History and Other Planetary Characters, which I expect to print in the fall.
from corposant :
Thank you for the lovely comment--and don't worry about being a novice. If you can manage to read a poem without being anxious to decipher its code, you're doing it the right way.
from dietcokegirl :
Sometimes I feel like no one is listening. And then a gentle nudge from a stranger reminds me, someone somewhere is always listening. Thank you for that. Feel free to stop by any time. And good luck finding the words to say "I like you, but I'm just not that into you." It's so hard to feel like you're letting someone down. Good luck!

Thank you for your kind words. I certainly will not mind if you put me on your list of favorites. Drop me a note anytime.
from sunnyrain828 :
Haha, I know exactly what you mean about wishing your kids would appreciate your being there more now instead of later. It's so hard to keep that big picture in mind sometimes, that hope for the future when the present looks so dim and gray. My husband constantly reminds me of the bigger picture: My salvation is secure with God, I am part of His kingdom, and nothing can ever change that. It gets me through a lot. And it also helps to remember that God works through the good, the bad, AND the ugly--even if the bad and ugly are from our own choices we make. He's so much bigger than the bad things that happen; His plan does not get messed up by them. He works through us even in our brokenness, and that brings me a lot of hope.
from opposure :
Thanks. I appreciate you asking. I certainly don't mind the visits as long as you don't mind reading about whatever streams out of my consciousness. It's not always (if ever) pretty or, at times, even conscionable.
from sunnyrain828 :
Still grateful to you for still trying to be a part of your children's lives despite the divorce. That is going to mean SO much to your kids when they're my age. I sure wish my dad had made more efforts.
from starhearts :
good that you have a clear vision of where you want to be....that in itself will help alot down the road. You will get there....you always seem to C.
from thruthecrowd :
Thanks for the appreciation. You're always welcome, I wish more people who read my diary would leave a message saying they visited. It would encourage me to write more :-)
from lobo21 :
Thank you for the prayers and well wishes for my dad going into his surgery. I appreciate them. :)

Hey David, I've been reading a few really good books. Ok not reading , but listening to them.... if you get a chance the five love languages of children is really good, same with the five love languages and God speaks your love language. Their all by Gary Chapman, and they are very insightful. Helping me tremendously. Hope is well. I'm keeping your Dad in my prayers. Have a good day.
from reader1209 :
Thanks so much for visiting...stop by anytime. And thank you so,so much for voting in the contest. :)
from talktogod :
I'm sad for you. And I also just realized this morning that I never got back to you on that online Bible study question. I'm so sorry about that. The one I sent to cherrygash was www.christianity.com. It's a HUGE site with online Bibles in a plethora of versions, Study resources, all kinds of stuff. I haven't really stumbled across anything else yet that I could, in good conscience, recommend to a friend.
from godtime :
thanks. I'm excited. Another adventure. Miss you. Hope you're good. Muah
from godtime :
How precious are our little ones fresh from God? So cute.
from cherrygash :
Hi! I saw your message to talktogod and just thinking if you find a good study group, I would appreciate if you let me in on it. Same with me as well. :) All the same, good to meet you.
from hadassah :
And I love you too, Handsome. So much.
from shortst101 :
I'm praying you and the love of your life can be together soon. I'm so happy to see YOU happy after such a long time! Hugss to you my friend.
from hadassah :
I ove you. Can't wait until thursday. See you soon.
from hadassah :
do you believe there will be husbands and wives in heaven together for eternity? Ė have no idea if there will be or not but I'm thinking if there is then being apart on this side of eternity for a little while isn't that long in comparison.
from hadassah :
captivated eh? Who's the lucky lady?
from hadassah :
Mr. Rip, I am a big girl.... I happen to be thoroughly enjoying the said company I am keeping late nights with. Thanks for your concern, kind sir.

hi there. thank you for your note. i hope it won't put u off when more entries come. (_^) i hope to read about u soon.
from deriveazure :
Never agains are very difficult indeed. I found myself saying them again and again, and here I am, playing the game again and hoping against hope it turns out differently this time. I don't disagree in the least with you swinging by as often as you please. All the best to you, as well.
from shortst101 :
Thanks for you message. Things are so crazy here. Hang in there, things will get better for you. Hugsss

thanks for the advice. i want to move to vancouver, actually. trade places?
from swimmmer72 :
Half marathons aren't so bad. I usually run one a year, and while I'm not fast anymore - I've done them in 1:31 - they are still very doable. You just have to run smart and avoid injury. Listen to your body and gradually increase your mileage and you'll be fine. Marathon? Same thing times two, but it takes a lot of running to get ready for it. Still, it's an experience that's worth the commitment if you have the time. I've done one and probably won't do another - no desire to train that much when there are so many other things I want to do. Just have fun with it. :)
from sunnyrain828 :
Hey Lobo (David). :) I was thinking about you today--prayed for you and your kids especially right now as they take in the news. I meant to tell you when I first started reading your diary that, from what I read, you seem to be a great dad, even when things are really, really hard. I can't tell you how encouraging that is. I think I mentioned that my parents divorced when I was young. My dad basically was not in my life and I've consequently been pretty jaded about men as dads. But you defy all the stereotypes I've established over the years. It's so encouraging...I can't think of a better word. Thank you.
from sunnyrain828 :
Depression can take a long time to wear off. Are you going to a counselor at all? Look for a non-profit organization that specializes in counseling. Your church might have an idea of where to find one. I started seeing a counselor before Stephen and I got married. She helped me through the pre-marriage fighting and the post-marriage depression. Just talking through stuff with somebody helps me. I see her less now because I think I've learned enough to know the steps I need to take to get better, and not seeing her every week forces me to take what I've learned and put it into practice. Anyway, counseling helped and helps me a ton, so it's an idea. :) Family counseling might be a good idea too. Divorce and separation can be really hard on kids. My parents divorced when I was 2 years old, so I don't even know what it is to have a dad, but it nonetheless made big marks on my life. One warning: Beware of "psycho-babble." :) Counselors and counsel-ees sometimes get caught up in all the theories and forget to remember that even if your problems have legitimate explanations and reasons and labels, that means you now have something to move AWAY from, not just accept as part of your life. :) Don't know if that makes any sense... Let me know if you'd like more clarification.
from sunnyrain828 :
Okay, I did that wrong. Let me try this again.
from sunnyrain828 :
Let me know if you got the password to my diary. I attempted to send it via Diaryland's lock-or-unlock feature.
from sunnyrain828 :
Oh--I forgot to say that you can call me whatever you want. I just call you Lobo because it gives me a trigger for remembering where I know you from--i.e. instead of, "David? David who?" I think "Oh! Lobo! Diaryland David." :)
from sunnyrain828 :
There's so much I want to say, reading your entries. I heard a song on the radio the other day--Mark Schultz's "He Will Carry Me"--and it made me think of you. I think you should listen to it, if you don't know it. It's a healing kind of song, especially when going through so much like you are. The other thing I wanted to say is that you and I are similar in that we are both perfectionists, the ones always wanting to do the right thing. And I've fought with it tooth and nail like you. But lately I've learned that that isn't at all what being a Christian is about. God knows we can't measure up. Which reminds me of another song you should listen to... "Even Then" by Nichole Nordeman. I should mention that music is one of the major ways in which I connect with God. :) I have a whole stash of songs that I listen to again and again when I'm having a rough time. They aren't the answer to everything, but they do turn my eyes to God instead of letting my thoughts rest on just me. I think that's the answer.
from sunnyrain828 :
Hi Lobo, it's nice to have a new visitor. I've been reading your journal and I admire your honesty and openness with the world. It seems that you have become more interested in God since beginning your journal, but I can't find when that happened. Would you mind sharing your story? I'd love to hear it. My name is Stephanie, by the way, but you can call me sunnyrain or whatever. I like Lobo, so I think I'm going to call you that for the time being. :)
from nixtress :
I've come to your diary via Swimmmer's. Hope that's okay :) Going to tinker around and read some. Hope that's okay too.

Hi, thanks for the message. The diary isn't private, so go ahead and read away if you wish. Nice to know someone is reading 'out there'.

Yeah. Letting life run you down isn't a good thing. You probably need to take whatever time you can for yourself until you get your mojo back. Tired and run down isn't doing anyone any good. Good luck.
from nodressing :
ooh, ouch. this is probably, in some unfair way, something you needed to see to get you going in a better direction for yourself. you are so right about You needing to make the changes and not waiting for them to turn themselves around. it's not an easy thing to grasp, but it certainly gets easier with practice over time. Hugs to you, Buddy. Now think of something that makes you laugh really hard and tell me what you came up with. ;)
from fuschiashock :
thanks.
from shortst101 :
Thanks for your notes and for the good thoughts and prayers. I appreciate them very much. I didn't know anything about Epilepsy either until I found out Nick had it. I hope that's not what is going on with Gray, but no matter what is going on, you will get through it. Hugssss sto you my friend.
from nodressing :
Hey, good to hear from you! I don't frequent DLand as much as I'd love to. I actually am amazed that this place is still going strong, eh? Seems I have some catching up to do ... Be well. Stay strong. Tough times make way for good times. I think we both know that. ;)
from onthe1ns1de :
Hey, thanks for the birthday wish. I had a pretty birthday day trying to escape the cold!
from tragicskies :
Who knows? Maybe I'll never find the question answered. Although, what is most likely in my case is that the answer is already in front of me and I am just too oblivious to see it.
from lust- :
Thanks for the note &well wishes for kisses. =) I, too, have a few unread books that I need to get to. They're the types of books that you have to take time to read, though. The kind that you can't just skim through &be happy with that. Hope you figure out your New Year's list soon. I have to do the same! Take care.<3
from silentforest :
Hey, just got your note and thought I'd stop by. I'm incredibly sorry to hear what's happened. Trust me when I say I know how much this hurts, but in the end there is only one direction left for us to go and that is forward. When life seems at its darkest, sometimes the only thing left to do is give that moment to God and trust in Him. He will not leave you, and He will not let you stay in this darkness. Even when you can't trust yourself, trust Him. I hope everything gets better for you soon, take care.
from lobo21 :
Ok, just got your note. Hope all is well. :)
from onthe1ns1de :
Well put!!! I love your portrayal of the coalition... "a three headed dog." I think that it is perfectly fitting. I never would of thought that in a country like ours our politicians would stoop to a level so low, and espically in the economic times we are in. I would much rather see an end to this so that Harper can get along with trying to fix and sort out the state of things. I really do hope that the govener general will call an election.
from lobo21 :
Life keeps rolling and a line that strikes me well from a classic movie. " We've got our health, and with all other things...we leave that up to you." Ahmen.
from shoutjo :
i'm sorry, you're WIFE and children. again apologies for getting your sex wrong.
from shoutjo :
thank you for adding a note to my diaryland. that thing is a mess, like me. i can offer little becuase i love little, but what i can offer is this, absolute certainty that what is in the bible will come to pass, love Jesus more then you're husband and children. he has commanded you too in the new testement written by his chosen apostles 2000 years ago.
from shortst101 :
Glad you are feeling better. Miss you too. Things here are okay. Can always be better, but okay is good too. Hugssssssss
from shortst101 :
Hi, hope you are feeling better soon. Sending you lots of get well hugs.
from revisions :
of course. i don't have many answers but ask lots of questions. :)
from talktogod :
Sure, my diary is public. I've never felt the need to lock it up.
from talktogod :
My daughter is 15...just started high school. It's going to be a real trip. We'll make it, though. We have some good vice-principals and counselors, I think.
from talktogod :
Just curious...what kind of learning disability does Gray have? I haven't tried to read back entries...probably in there somewhere. My daughter is high-functioning autistic with anxiety disorder.
from godzgirlz :
Thank You for Finding my writings interesting and for your kind words! Sure drop in anytime! Peace/Love ~ME~ piperanj
from jedidiah77 :
hey man, no new entries? Where you be? where you be? lol...
from jedidiah77 :
Hey man, thanks for leaving me a note...I appreciate it...I will keep in touch with your diary...have a good day
from talktogod :
I hope I have the right person. If this is "David" that left a comment at my diary, I'm very grateful for your comments. It always lifts me up to find out that someone gets something out of my writing. Feel free to stop by anytime. If that wasn't you, just ignore this. Heh.
from mskindasorta :
I'm leaving diaryland, new journal is rebeckajane.blogspot.com xo
from startafresh :
hello, thank you for calling by my diary and taking the time to fill in my baby poll. New visitors are always welcome. I'll be coming back to view you again too. :)
from swimmmer72 :
Feel free to stop by any time you want! I appreciate the interest, and if you don't mind, I'll check out your diary as well. :)
from ten-oclock :
I'm sorry to hear about your friends and their mishap. Must be hard to see someone you care about suffering like this. I believe in the power of prayers. Whether you pray for yourself or for someone else, it really does help find the solution or alleviate the situation. I send good healing thoughts to them.
from ten-oclock :
Listerine is a fantastic remedy for mosquito bites too. I don't like stereotypes, but after living in a multicultural city for so long it's hard not to have them. Some people may think they're offensive but they do exist for a reason. I'm trying not to judge people based on that. I think you're absolutely right about married couples having less and less to say to each other, the more they know each other. The good thing is that they have comfortable silences. It think it's the daily routine that makes couples mute too. They have more to say to each other when they're in a new place, as if they're meeting each other for the first time. "Here's hoping with both run into more people willing to share themselves with us." I'll drink to that! :)
from ten-oclock :
yes real. Not just in 3D pokable form lol
from ten-oclock :
Hello! Thanks for your note. You're welcome to stumble back in my diary anytime. :) Your entries are a good read too. You seem like a really nice person - very real.
from rebeckajane :
Guess who has chocolate..
from shortst101 :
Thank you for the Mother's Day Wishes. I apprecite it very much. Hope you all are doing well. I think of you and your family often.
from starhearts :
Thanks Dage, time with the kis has been good, and hard.if that makes sense given them not living here anymore..I miss them. I think the best mother's day gift I got was my hug from Jonathan and beign told things will be ok (and he loves me was implied), and the walk we did as a family. Jenny went to church with me this mrongin which was nice (she is stil a server when she is here). Anyways I hope that things turned out well at home there for Mother's day too! I know for the kids it is important to have something happening so they know it can be a special day as a famiy....hugs back :) and thank you....nice to be thought of.... C.
from milas :
Thanks for the nice comment. You're welcomed any time. I've just enjoyed a few of your entries as well. Looking forward to reading more.
from trishapaints :
thanks for the note and birthday wishes!
from shortst101 :
I miss you too! Maybe we can catch up with each other sometime. Hugsss
from sumi37 :
use the term "fermented diet coke" in any way you see fit! And stop by anytime, though I can't update nearly as much as I would like.....
from starhearts :
Thanks for the note...yes I know...logically the best thing to do would likely be to walk....emotionally I have to get there as yet. I am still hoping things might work out....reality says otherwise most likely. Guess in the end it doesn't matter much as I still have 101 things to settle in life first before I can really move on in my life...right now that seems a million miles away even though I work on them every day. Anyways, Take care and thanks..... C. :)
from starhearts :
Nice to hear about your walks...I could almost see the little street you were walking down.....it sounded like it would have been nice to just be out for the sake of a nice walk. :) thanks..... C.
from starhearts :
Glad to see you are exploring new interests on d-land and in music :) Always good to have new hobbies..happy listening as it sounds good...C.
from silentforest :
Dave, feel free to stumble across my page any time you like. I'm glad you enjoyed the entry, and I just might take your advice. And thanks for leaving the note, I really appreciate it.
from starhearts :
Hi there :) Well hope life is treating you well on the west coast of this big country. Have not heard from you for a bit and I have not been writing much but hope to get back to it again. Life is going ok, not perfect, not badly, just kind of survival mode at this point in time. Next week and the week after that will be different I am sure. I have been trying to spend some time with John...that has not done all that well but we did manage yesterday to go grocery shopping, have dinner then I had a long unexpected nap, got up tired out and sat outside for a short while while he talked about the garden plants (boring....) and I went home to bed. Nice garden but I don't know names or have an interest in it, they are pretty flowers to look at as I walk by to get into the house...oh well. Otherwise not much new. Let me know how you are doing? I never did get a snail mail letter from you LOL TC!!!!!!! C.
from starhearts :
Thanks for the note...things will be fine given time. I think he and I will be staying friends as I know that he knows what I thought of him, he just wanted someone else who has been in his life for a long time as his life partner so they are going to try to make it work. Not too different then you going back to Liz in some ways though far different people in general. Hope your marriage is going well and making you very happy!!!! Always was my hope in the bottom of my heart that you would finally get the relationship you always wanted :) As for me I think I will be sitting on the sidelines for now taking a break and just being in a few pieces and working on putting me together but I bounce back anyways so I will be ok. Just was a real suprise because as of yesterday morning things were prefect and by last night the whole thing had me in tears...funny how life can be like that without notice. tc and chat again soon. C.
from nodressing :
Hello dear ... How can I find you to leave you a more personal message? I used to have your email address but it's not in my updated list?? Hmm.
from starhearts :
First old fashion mail has made it to the box and should be on its way ...hope you like it :o) and great idea! C.
from starhearts :
Would love mail and an old fashion penpal, but not sure if you are even talking to me these days.... sigh... Congrads on moving back in with Liz though! That is a wonderful thing to see happening and I hope it goes really well :) C.
from starhearts :
my error I did not know it had a history...
from shortst101 :
Great new look. Hope you are well. Let me know how things are.
from starhearts :
ps.. I like the new look on your site :o) Very Nice!!! would love to join you sitting on your empty bench watching the waves roll in....
from starhearts :
Nice to see you joining in on d-land...glad to hear that things are going well with the family :o) Hugs... c.
from starhearts :
Hey Sounds like a wonderful discovery!!! Welcome back!!!! One question...where is Cate going on a holiday/trip??? Didn't hear about this as yet???? Scripture for this sunday here is Mary annointing Jesus' feet... last week was the story of the protical's son.... next week is Palm Sunday/Passion Sunday the story of Jesus' journey to Jeruselem riding a colt and the week after is of course Good Friday and Easter....WONDERFUL time to REDISCOVER your church life as it is the highest holiday of the church year and the most significant....no hints intended but I am sure if you take the time you will love it and find it meaningful. C.
from starhearts :
Good for your home in having the clocks all changed. Ours have not been touched as yet and I keep mentally adding an hour. Right now for example the clock says 5:45 pm..but it is 6:45 pm and I AM STARVING..It must be supper time :) Either way I look at it I think, yep time for dinner. The only thing I did not like about the time change is I woke up at 4 am but it was actually now 5 am due to having to add a hour to my thinking..still too darn early and had to start church at 9:15 am this morning...but that means it was actually only 8:15 am ...too darn early to be out trying to function that is for sure!! Though at least I was not late :) Time changes are just very confusing for my simple brain cells. :) Anyways my holidays have now officially started :) HURRAY!!!!! Write me!
from shortst101 :
I miss talking to you. Write me! Bridges of Madison County, one of my all time favorite movies AND books. Hugsss, hope you have a good week.
from starhearts :
thanks for sharing your not so easy week..explains why things have been a bit tougher than sometimes for time and energy...a bit of relaxing is well deserved and hopefully you will continue to find time to enjoy a bit more of it too :) the book and music sounds like a wonderful combination....as soon as I find a few minutes, when I am not trying to body paint myself, I think it sounds divine...like laughter & fine wine. Give me a bit of time and I will have a wonderful place for both.... C.
from starhearts :
if I promise to treat you well will you write more :) miss ya on d-land you know
from shortst101 :
Really sounds like things are going good for you and Liz. I'm so happy about that. I hope all is well. Miss you. Sandy
from starhearts :
I agree as you seem to have started working together and it is nice to see your wife laughing even if it is at something funny that you did...that is a good sign :) On the right track I think!!!! C.
from shortst101 :
Nice to see you....and it's sounds like you are doing good. Hugssss
from starhearts :
Nice to see you back and welcome! :)
from starhearts :
Glad to hear the new year is starting off on a good note and heres to more happy entries, fun days and smiles :) Be glad you live in an apartment with all that snow out west!!! Hope you and the kids maybe can find a few minutes to at least make a snowman just for fun :) After all we have no snow to make one with at the moment so I would like to think of someone having fun in that white fluffy stuff :) Hugs! C.
from shortst101 :
I hope the new year brings you all that you dream and wish for. Wishing you and Liz the best and all the children too. Hugsss. Sandy
from shortst101 :
Wishing you and Liz all the happiness in the world. Have a Merry Christmas. Hugss, Sandy
from shortst101 :
Ohhh Myyy, I'm glad you weren't hurt in the mugging. It's amazing they caught them so quickly and that you got everything back. I know you are happy that Gray is doing so much better at daycare and wow, Cate turning 15. You know Frankie will be 15 on the 20th. Time sure does fly. Miss you my friend. Tried to im you a couple times in MSN but never could catch up with you. More Hugs
from starhearts :
Guess I really do miss things..Your entry scared me silly and having just read it I am a wreck! Heart in throat.... hugs... Take care YOU! C.
from shortst101 :
The journey is your own. I hope it takes you where you want to go. Hugssss, I'm always here if you need a friend.
from starhearts :
I wrote something in your sign in and it did not stay... I don't think I can re-write it and give it justice. In any case, you are getting there slow but sure and in time you will be able to measure where you have been and where you are going. Trust that the path you are on is worth the time and maybe some more talking of life today and the future as part of that. I am sure that your journey is changing somehow. :) C.
from shortst101 :
Things WILL get better, it just takes time. Hang in there. I hope all will be okay with Gray and the girls. They grow up, so very quickly, and leave us wondering and hoping we did the best job of raising them. Your a good father. Don't ever forget that. Miss hearing from you. Email me or something if you want too....shortst101@aol.com.
from starhearts :

from shortst101 :
Hope you are feeling better. Hugssss
from starhearts :
Glad to hear that you are getting better and that you had time with the kids for a bit of a holiday at home! Holidays are nice to spend with family though I had thought at first that the kids were making the trip with you so I guess life changes. Anyways enjoy the summer now that has finally arrived!
from shortst101 :
Happy Birthday to You Happy Birthday to You Happy Birthday, my friend Happy Birthday to You. I hope this birthday is a good one for you and that the upcoming year is filled with all the happiness that you deserve. Hugs.
from shortst101 :
Hope that Gray is okay. Let me know what the doctors say. You know your friend was right, get happy with yourself and things will get better. I need to do the same thing. Hugs
from shortst101 :
Me thinks you need more hugs. HUGSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS, hope the kids are better and that you are better too.
from starhearts :
hope you get well soon!
from shortst101 :
Sending you hugs and lots of good thoughts.
from starhearts :
My hunch is that you have a calling....and struggle more than most to make sure you are focused elsewhere will on Satan's end hopefully keep your attention elsewhere so that you can't discover what that is meant to be. People who are not searching out the will of God don't struggle the way you are..... more details available but you would need to ask and maybe would prefer to hear it from someone else. Thought this for a while now but will see..... also wondering what set you off for being angry tonight...glad you were able to step away from it some. The night with the kids sounded really, realy nice.
from shortst101 :
You have something to say even if you think it's nothing.
from shortst101 :
I know the anniversary must have been a bit weird...but congrats anyway. Things will work out the way they should. Way to go on the 10K run......you give me inspiration and motivation. I'd be happy to be able to walk a mile or two. Hugsssssssssssssss
from starhearts :
Congrads on making it in 53 minutes..I htink you said 2 years ago that that was about the time it took you too :) Consisitance...it matches your personality ;o) Sorry just being a brat :) LOL Good luck and your prayers in your future talk with Liz...I hope it is a good one! ttys, C.
from starhearts :
congrads on reaching 8 years....hope you bought her something pretty anyways and I am glad she is still talking to you :) hang in there I am thinking of you...... and set up a prayer or two, love ya C.
from starhearts :
That piece was sooo bitter sweet somehow....and at the same time extremely touching. I hope Liz read it! :) She is one lucky girl and my guess is she is pretty & special!!! :) take care of you..... C.
from shortst101 :
Your anniversary is the same as my birthday. No matter what happens, life will turn out good David. Just hang in there. Hugs, Sandy
from shortst101 :
I'm glad that I can see inside your home and that you look inside mine. Thank you for bearing with me all these years. We have always had lots in common and still do....miss talking to you. We should write more often, you know it?
from starhearts :
intersting way of looking on d-land...good luck at keeping your windows streak free and clear :) Have a good day! C.
from shygrl21 :
Thanks : )
from shortst101 :
Hey.....hugsssssssssssss....(that's all I wanted to say)
from starhearts :
Hope your weekend couple of days with your family is special..it will be fun to see the kids smiles for their choc gifts :) My guess is the Japanese word is ...bye??? but when I have time I will see if Jenny knows. Good for you to find positives...thanks for the life lesson as it is a good practice to get into :) You forgot one of your family on your list...hope it was by accident....love ya..and hugs.
from taytertot05 :
hey because of my dad's snoopi-ness i had to put a lock on my diary so the User Name:brown Password:eyes please keep reading even though theres a lock. God Bless Taylor
from taytertot05 :
hey lobo21, i know this is probably really weird and strange and random but i came across your diary and really like what you have to say...i hope everything works out for you and i'm adding you as my buddy so i can keep updated with you...God bless you Taylor<><
from shortst101 :
Just wanted you to know that i'm still out here and still hoping things turn out the way you want them too. Hugs, Sandy
from starhearts :
did you find the entry that I wrote of the reflection piece I was using for this Sunday? Wish you could hear it with the music...it is beautiful! some day I might call to share it with you if that is ok....?????? .....
from starhearts :
neat song and my guess is that it makes you think of someone ???..... I can guess, but won't here (not me)..... just if it does before I go trying to find it let me know, as i would hate to listen to it, thinking of you thinking of her _______ ...you know it is kind of strange to do that :) Otherwise I would maybe pick a similar cd by the same singer to see what it is like :) so far your music tastes have proved to be interesting to date! Do you have a favourite spot on the web to listen to music??
from starhearts :
Thanks for your note and prayers...things here have been pretty rocky and God knows good friends are a real blessing...miss ya.. C.
from starhearts :
Ahh D. now you can't be that hard up....oh ahh...sorry for the pun... :) (btw I didn't say that :) As far as who you do and don't want around, well when you figure out how to spill the beans on who and why I am sure it will be an interesting thought process....happy times with the spring fever and don't have any more fun than the rest of us!!!!
from nodressing :
(spring fever, female forms,etc...) what? you just wanna have your cake AND eat it too? ha! i think we just need to find some new hobbies and get our minds out of the crotches and gutters. :) (note the "WE" 'cause spring has sprung in jersey too!)
from starhearts :
glad to hear you are doing well and working on life...always challenging, some points more than others. Keep the faith and I am sure that love will win out over all :) God's blessings love ya, C.
from shygrl21 :
Thanks. And I think a lot of people on dland secretly love to write. In here we can write as much as we want about whatever we want. Funny how the computer ended up giving me a space to write.
from nodressing :
it wasn't you i was referring to, i hope you know that. you've been given a second chance! ;) heh heh
from nodressing :
are YOU on myspace.com? http://www.myspace.com/vjtoddu come play with us...
from starhearts :
sounds like a heck of a day...good thing the night was better. Cate really is terrific! Little ones can be challenging and with some help from you she seems to have survived well. good luck cleaning grandma's place... have a good day
from starhearts :
hi ty for the note..got the reminder..foot in mouth is gone...back on track??? well we will see how it goes...likely ok. Happy to see you are on d-land wandering around and enjoying life I hope. :) have a good day
from shortst101 :
Just dropping in to give you hugs and good thoughts. Hope they will help a little.
from shygrl21 :
I actually did understand that ramble... scary, huh?
from starhearts :
New things to ponder.....hmmm I can certainly offer a list :) lets start with spring golfing strokes...your next tennis match...kids in the park....well the other things I will call you about...keep working on a list I could use some new things to ponder too, maybe you could share your new findings. C.
from nodressing :
awkward. numb. distanced. bored. underlying passion; molten. you can do it; don't let go doesn't want to need needs to want embrace independence; encourage it share differences; laugh at them unite as one...of two. **
from nodressing :
vomit volcano...i love that. the description, i mean. hope they're feeling better. and you, i hope you're getting your rest.
from shortst101 :
Hope the kids are doing better now. And hope you don't get sick again.
from nodressing :
the other girl said i've been writing like a madwoman. i thought about that. i'm getting out all those feelings i was too afraid to let out all along. hidden exposure...it's the best i can right now. give me something to read, please. diaryland is dead. or maybe i need to get outside and explore the real world, huh?
from shortst101 :
Hang on....it's going to get better. Hugsss my friend.
from starhearts :
HI D...miss ya....and loneliness at night is hard to face...especially when you are wishing it was different than it is. Hugs C.
from starhearts :
boy do kids grow, change and yet when they are smaller it seems to go slower. Found pics of my kids at my brother's wedding a few years back....they were short!!! Now both tower over me and I think it has only been a few years (less in my mind). Give those little ones and the big one an extra hug today :)
from shortst101 :
They truly do grow too fast. It's amazing how they change and how much we don't want them to change so quickly. I hope you guys don't go for round two with the colds, we are on round 2 here now.
from nodressing :
oh, and thanks for adding me too...although, you were never really gone in my mind. ;)
from nodressing :
my baby girl fell a couple of months back, catching her top gums on a concrete curb. red blood on fair skin and blond hair is a scary sight. it was amazing to me how something took over my body and put me into automatic mode, where i couldn't panic, even though i knew i was. apparently, babies heal well...the cut was huge and deep, but they wouldn't stitch it. in only three days, it was barely noticeable. but my heart hurt so badly for her. her strength and innocence had me crying myself to sleep those nights. i hope the boy is well...
from shortst101 :
We want to protect them and keep them out of harms way and when they do get hurt or other kids get hurt it really does effect us greatly. Hugssss, hope you are feeling better.
from shortst101 :
I hope you are back to 100% soon! HUGSSSSSSSSS
from nodressing :
groan...i know, i know...that middle of the road feeling...sick, but not sick enough to have the right to act sick. sick, isn't it? ;)
from nodressing :
btw, my baggage was sent to the correct address, however if you're interested in viewing the contents...you'd have to make room to take it all in. it's a lot. ;)
from nodressing :
5 days have come and gone...Can you update, so i can memorize another opening line? ;)
from nodressing :
yes, of course it's ME! i've read you off and on since you gave up on me, lol! i know you'd never know it, but out of all the things i've put myself through, those words you wrote to me back then have helped to carry me through. i was a complete wreck, and you were good enough to stand up to me and shake me with your words. you called me on my bluff and made me take some good long looks at myself in the mirror. for that, i thank you for your bluntness. for that, i stalked your diary through the years, lol. i haven't been able to catch up on all your latest doings, but it's on my to-do list for my "me" time. ;) --nodressing
from nodressing :
actually, it wasn't YOU who was getting around, i was mistaken...it was invisibledon's survey, and when i saw his name i remembered you, and sure enough still found you there. btw, if you've got an opinion on gay marriage, would you mind taking my survey? i've got an essay due on the topic and would appreciate your input, thanks!
from nodressing :
you know, either it's a really small world here at diaryland or you get around a lot! stumbled upon your name in a random survey i had chosen. your kids are gorgeous, btw. (--PoetryGrl)

from shortst101 :
It seems that the days are like that for everyone these days, especially me, so I know how you feel. Just hang in there....try to find a smile in everyday and despite all the rushing around....allow yourself time to stop and realize what you truly have in life. Smiles and hugs....
from shortst101 :
Do you think that now that you understand her need for time to "do her own thing" and "freedom" that it can be worked out? Does She? Sorry, I'm just curious......and well that's all i'll say for now.
from shortst101 :
Thank you for the hugss and I'm glad you and Becka are able to still talk about things and be friends and I do hope that things with Liz are going to get better.

No it wasn't me messing things up but one of my less than stellar employees - Robotics is making more sense everyday
from starhearts :
hummm...now does this mean text messages, cell phones, phone calls too??? or is it just tv, computers, etc...? Boy we would do well with a week like that for Jonathan - NO PLAYSTATION - Now that would be heaven here :)
from shortst101 :
Hurry back! You can't stay unplugged too long!
from shortst101 :
You really ARE a wonderful father. Hey, hang in there with Liz....if it's meant to work out, it really will.....but looks like to me, you will be okay either way :) hugs
from starhearts :
And the star dad of the year award goes to DAVE :) Great description of a good day out with the Chinese Dragon events, doing laundry!!!, cleaning up and having the kids have fun with you making dinner and RICE CRISPY SQUARES....now why is it your house is so far away from mine! I love RCS's!! Nacho's too! Have a great day D. :) Love ya C.
from shortst101 :
"Together times" = "Good Times" This entry made me smile.
from starhearts :
Been there as a single parent and it is TOUGH! but hang in there as I know that you are doing a super job and the kids are terrific so life will get better when everyone is back to feeling better. Kids are tough when there are two parents around too when everyone is ill. Just think next week you will have time to recoup and get out a bit which will be a good breath of air for a few hours. The benefit of split parenting is that you do get some time on your own so take it and do something fun!!!! See friends, go out, just relax and have a starbucks (Hey that sounds good I think next week I should take a day off and take my own advice too :) Love ya, C.
from shortst101 :
I loved reading about your father in law and your golfing days together, I know you miss him. Sorry to hear the kids aren't feeling so well, I hope they get better soon and that you don't come down with it. Hang in there.....Hugsss to you.
from starhearts :
Finally found the time to drop in...your notes on your father-in-law Ed made me kind of sad and I could see you walking the golf course that is now closed down. Hopefully it was at least part of good memories and the love that you had for him that took you there that day. I have caught up on reading your diary now and miss you lots. C.
from shortst101 :
So, what have you done lately that has made you sit up and really take notice of your life?? What are your thoughts, dreams, hopes and wishes? Come on..you can tell me...I promise i'll listen.
from shortst101 :
Well, I'm proud that you both went to the counseling session and that you at least are trying. I hope it all works out the way it should. Keep being patient. Hugs
from shortst101 :
Awww, that was so sweet of you to say. Your a great guy, a wonderful father and so very kind and sweet and I'm glad to be able to call you my friend as well.
from shortst101 :
Keep thinking positive and staying motivated! I'm trying to do that myself! Repeat after me: This will be a good year. Hang in there...hugss
from shortst101 :
I'm saddened at what has happened between you and Becka...but yes, I do believe she is right. If you didn't try to work out your marriage, then you could regret it. If it doesn't work out in the end, at least you tried. Hugsssssssssssssssss, hang in there.
from shortst101 :
Hey, hugssss and Happy New Year. Let's hope that 2006 will be the best year in a long time for all of us. I have been thinking about you and Becka lots and wondering what's going on.....looks like you think things have gotten quiet with you two, i hope that isn't the case. I haven't heard from her either and don't remember the password and stuff for her diary, but it looks like she hasn't updated in a long time anyway. So drop me a line if you want and let me know what's going on.....hugsss, hang in there. My email is shortst101@aol.com if you want to write.
from shortst101 :
hey, you know your welcome....i took will be cheering on the sidelines and hoping that everything will work out in the end for the both of you......big hugsssssssss and i'm looking forward to your IM
from shortst101 :
Hey there, 1st of all let me say your welcome and although i haven't quite figured out what is going on....i know it has to do with you and becka and i'll take the blame. I'm sorry I haven't been here for you and for her either like I should have been. Sometimes life gets so hard and you don't know how to deal and you back away from everyone and everything and try to figure it all out. I know you know what i'm talking about. OMG at what happened with child abuse charges, that totally appalls me! GOD you are a wonderful person and father. Hugsssssssssssssssssssssss, miss you my friend...and hey, how about someone iming me and letting me know exactly what is going on please.
from shortst101 :
hugssssssssssssss, things will be okay.....they will work out, no matter what. And you have a wonderful attitude about things even though things are hard....i love that about you. It's great that you and Liz are working togther to make sure the kids are comfortable and as disrupted as possible. Hugssssssssssss, if you need a shoulder or ear, i've got two of each.
from shortst101 :
did you start a new diary? if so , will you please let me know the name?
from shortst101 :
I've been reading your past entries...all the ones that I have missed...and i'm so sorry about you and Liz.....hell, i'm in tears hear reading about it.....i'm floored, i can't even imagine how you have been with the whole thing. Hugssssssssss
from shortst101 :
OMG! what the hell did i miss..you guys are seperated..that is something i never ever would have thought could have happened.....sighs, i'm sorry i haven't been around.....if you need a friend....well you got one......hugssssssss (and thanks for the welcome back)
from invisibledon :
happy b-day
from heelandlass :
Thank you very much. Yeah, punching toilet paper in the shop, I am so rock and roll! I've just realised that I left a note in your diary saying I'd keep in touch and then haven't. So here I am now keeping in touch! You are welcome to come along for the ride - I'll warn you now though, the black day entries are nasty! xxx
from invisibledon :
Dude, where the hell have I been - I so totally can relate to every, everything you said in your last few entries mainly because I've walked the same road or a very similar one - well my ex is just mean and hateful but I know the feelings and the heartbreak and all the old habits that you have to change. All I can say is that it gets better even though it doesn't seem like it will - drop a line if you need to shout out about anything.
from heelandlass :
Hi! Thanks for letting me know! I've never spoken to you before. How did you find my diary? I've read a few of your entries (after you left the note) I'll be keeping in touch xx
from shortst101 :
Your entry today made me grin :)
from shortst101 :
Keep asking and answering those questions and when you find out tell me the answers, ok?
from shortst101 :
hugssssssssssssss, i know the feeling well
from clickari :
I've never actually posted my lyrics on my diary. This is more of a train of thought that came out poetically. I am probably going to use it as a springboard to make a song, but it's too long and too poetic to be used at it is. I appreciate your comment! Thanks!
from shortst101 :
hi there, nice to see you with an entry...hugsssssss
from shortst101 :
Glad to see you
from shortst101 :
Hellooooooooooooooooo...is anybody out there???
from invisibledon :

from invisibledon :
Sounds like a lot of fun over the last few months, congrats on the Wed Anniversary, sorry about the fence thing but at least it was your arm and not your ah... family jewels - happened to a friend of mine who thought he could side hop over one. Numb feelings in the arm are minor - good to see that you updated again.
from purex :
Oh God! I didn't know Purex was a brand of toilet paper! My diary is purex, damn it damn it damn it, purex as in pure ecstasy. Damn it.
from tom-seb-jak :
STAT!

Hey, are you doing ok??? Hope the family is doing good too. Miss you.
from shortst101 :
just dropping in to say hi
from transcend :
I've been trying to ween myself off of Buffy for a while. I thought finally seeing the Dark Willow episodes would do it, but I keep going back. The Xander thing though, I don't know how much it has to do with my Buffy over-involvement. I think it has to do with my twisted sex drive, heh.
from shortst101 :
Hello there, nice to have you grace us with your presence. I think you and I are in the same boat, i'm on the edge, of insanity. Yay for Liz's new job. Hugsss for you.
from transcend :
Hey, I didn't know you were on d-land! This is the hip surgery girl from blurty. I just updated my journal over there for the first time in months and wanted to say hi. Hi! :)

Frankie's birthday just passed on the 20th of November. Seems he never gets the attention he deserves on his birthday either, it just sneaks up on me and it's so close to THanksgiving and Christmas. I know how you feel with everyone 'snapping' at each other. It is happening alot here. Hopefully everyone will calm down soon. Hope everything goes well with Mother in law's surgery. Hugssssssss for you.
