from moodymelinda :
I did just email you....let me know if you dont get it?
from chaosdaily :
yea, i agree with the doc. can you email me your username and password? [email protected], or leave it in my notes if you want... hang in there!
from ohswim :
MM -- I have, as you, been writing less often. I miss it but just haven't made the time. You are not insane. The feelings you express are clearly heartfelt and real and they are feelings many of us have from time to time. I will miss your writings. If you decide to password protect and keep writing, I would love to have the password. Either way, you should keep writing somewhere. You are good at it and, if you are like me, it helps. Just know that you have friends who love and support you. Dr. D.
from wench77 :
Hi moodymelinda! Sorry to see you go, as I was sorry to see the frequency of your posts drop. But it seems you need something different than diaryland right now. Thankyou for all of your sharing of yourself in your blog, and you are very welcome to come by and visit us and our diaries, and leave comments, any time you like. I hope you are well... I send you good wishes of happiness, love and fulfilment. hugs.
from chaosdaily :
let me know when/if you decide to come back...
from wench77 :
ok, so you didn't write that, but it is pretty darn hilarious. Now I will always have to take another woman with me to the bathroom... that is a very good argument for doing so. hope you're well, moodymelinda! Always glad to see your posts.
from wench77 :
that is funny. Well, ok I didnt have to wash the peed-in bed, but it was still funny. Is that why HIS bed was no good as well??
from sunnflower :
I think you did pretty good on your Tuesday all in all. I had to laugh about the getting up late and getting the kid to school late. I have had the same problem here lately. We are going to go and buy a huge alarm clock this weekend!
from wench77 :
hahaha, when I read what you wanted to do today I thought you were insane, that is three days full of stuff. so sounds like you did lots in your day. Totally more than enough. It is so hard to be realistic. And almost impossible to do the exercise thing... ooops!
from f-i-n :
what a cool template!
from wench77 :
heh! you're not the only one noticing the shorter days and not wanting summer to end. September is rushing upon us. Well, all of August yet to go!
from chaosdaily :
try a cat.... you can leave them for a week at a time as long as you put out enough food... and you wont ever have mice in your house.. hehhehee
from wench77 :
eek, how ghastly that timing the hike thing! Yikes! Is he in the military???
from ohswim :
It sounds like a great place to hike....If you can enjoy it. Sometimes racing the clock is fun but hiking is a sport where one should probably take the time to enjoy the view, watch your step and smell the flowers. Your hubby should be careful he doesn't become AN AMERICAN....Everything has to be faster all the time here. love dr.d.
from wench77 :
ROFL!! IT's ok, really I never thought that! haha! :D
from wench77 :
LOL! Hi there! I guess you liked my comments! I got all four comments and a note from you, don't worry! They seem to have all worked! LOL! Hope you are well, and dang, certainly don't worry about catching up on entries!
from wench77 :
hello! Nice to see you here! Missed you! I would be bothered by all those gun games too. and yikes... he shoots the ones who surrender!! I too hope he grows out of it soon. Hope you're well!
from sunnflower :
Little boys do like the water guns. It's so hot here - perfect weather for water guns.
from sunnflower :
I really enjoy your diary and I was happy to see your latest update.
from wench77 :
hey there! Nice to see a posting from you even if it isn't updating us on you personally! Though it was very fun to see what makes a Norwegian!! I liked some of those, including "no such thing as bad weather" and wearing sports clothes everywhere. Easter here is snowy too!! Hope you're doing fine, and that you'll feel like giving us a hello some time! tah!
from wench77 :
He's right you know. They will go right up to the ceiling! LOL! I personally cannot do anything with long nails, so if I lived next door he could cut mine. Glad to see you back. I miss you and your stories. cheers!
from mistresyo :
I agree with you about the donations! ^_^ we should keep that helping spirit all year long. Take care.
from sunnflower :
Stopping by to say Happy New Year to you. I was thinking about this idea of giving throughout the year to people in need not just in the face of disaster too. Good entry.
from chaosdaily :
well the man tries to make it my fault... not throwing boxes away, by saying "he wasnt told to do it" and "you have to train him" therefore its because I didnt do those things, it s my fault... at least he thinks that way. i dont.
from wench77 :
Hey there. I totally get you with this entry ... people are so much more receptive to helping out during a oneshot catastrophe than they are with slow death and general misery. We will make sure that Sri Lanka has clean water where millions are dying around the world for lack of it for years and years, and the US has shown more interest in bombing countries than preventing cholera. It is sad. Maybe it will make more of us more aware of suffering outside our borders generally. Take care and happy 2005. tah!
from wench77 :
well if there is a man who cares it is certainly not Mr religious fanatic supermacho Mel Gibson. Sorry. Actually I'm not. He's a prat. Anyways, you should email Sleepyzoe to ask what to write in your diary to make it not show up on Search engines. She told me once but I didn't keep the info. It is possible. I am glad you are back. Sorry to see you don't feel like someone cares what you want. And I hope 2005 brings you more satisfaction and happiness. cheers!
from wench77 :
Hey there! That's funny, all the cookies disappearing off the trays as soon as they're out of the oven. I personally burn them if I do something else, like look at diaryland, while the last tray is in. It must be nice falling asleep listening to a small one breathe, but the privacy will be nice as well. Cheers!
from sandysands :
I think that everyone feels that way sometimes...thank goodness for tomorrows.
from wench77 :
Hey there! You may feel week, but obviously you have your head screwed on right to want to be appreciated for yourself, and if someone gets upset you are objecting, it means you are still having the strength and presence of mind to object. Hang onto that, you're worth every bit. Don't think of yourself as weak, just in a situation that is not the best for you. I hope things go better soon. hugs. Glad to see you here.
from chaosdaily :
i feel a lot of the things you do.... if that helps at all, and i do care how you feel...
from sunnflower :
Thanks for leaving me a birthday note last week! That was so nice and I appreciated it. I am glad to see you are writing in your diary again. I missed you!
from chaosdaily :
and shopping is even better when it includes chocolate... hang in there melinda!
from wench77 :
Yay for shopping! Sexy underwear is always a good thing. And that's funny when you mention the snow, I remember you are this unpatrioticly-sported woman who doesnt like skiing! LOL! Me too I still have plants outside that need bringing in. Time is flying but it is still not predicting freezing. weird for November. Maybe it is the global warming. cheers!
from wench77 :
That certainly wasnt whiny. It was an eloquent statement of how many of us feel very often. That image is gorgeous by the way. Way better than any drawings I have done trying to express that state. You sound like major depression. yeah. But in a major or minor way we can probably all identify. Keep writing melinda, you write beautifully and strike a chord in me, and others too. Take care.
from chaosdaily :
no its not just you... funny, ive felt that way ever since i got married... haha but a lot more in the last few years. i cant wait to live alone, and not have to go out if i dont want to.
from chaosdaily :
yea i feel like your first sentence too....
from mistresyo :
That picture really worth more than 1000 words!!
from ohswim :
Sometimes I think we all feel that way. (Although that simple statement is one of the best I've ever seen to describe it). Being pushed and pulled, back and forth, never really moving or moving at the will of the sea and unable to really take control of our movement. The statement is wonderful in its depiction of this sad feeling.......or maybe you just meant you got wet...if so ignore the above...hehehehe....love dr.d.
from chaosdaily :
sometimes i feel like that too. missed you!
from wench77 :
Hullo! Are you being moody? We miss you... at least I do! Your stories, your kids, your quirkiness and hopes. Glad to see an update, no matter how short. hugs!
from mistresyo :
Hello form USA!!! Nice diary!! and about the water all over your bathroom (lol ^o^ ) I used to do that in my older's sister Bathroom.. thanks for remind me ^-^!!
from ohswim :
You should post. I missed reading you. dr.d.
from ohswim :
Who's there?....hehehe Your password is "open"
from wench77 :
LOL! you cannot see how it is more fun to slide around on wet tiles (which of course is a new discovery for him) than sit in the bath where he is supposed to? You have to remember "melinda as a little girl"! It is more fun to color on the walls than on the coloring book, and more fun to fingerpaint with poop than wipe it with toilet paper nicely. Just as we all enjoy our day off more if it was supposed to be a workday. :) Or sneaking a kiss on the sly. Sorry bout the mess, but perhaps you should join in on the floor before mopping?!! Also, is he good with a sponge? A game of "who can sponge the most water into a pail" might be a good thing for after the bath!! :) (you can tell they're not my kids, cuz if they were, I probably wouldve been, myself, royally pissed. hehe)
from sunnflower :
Sounds like your son has a creative approach to life. That means a little more mess for you but lots of interesting things to come.
from wench77 :
oh, your template is back! Gosh, what a shopping trip! I know it was probably horrid to live through, but it does make a great funny story. Hope your little one isn't bumped up too bad! I got a huge black eye once by walking into a parking meter.
from chaosdaily :
oh its ok, we all have days like that. kids just dont ever cooperate when you need them to.....
from sunnflower :
What happened to your pretty template? Oh well, it's Melinda we love! I know exactly what you mean about not being able to get a grip. We are twins across the ocean. Hugs. :)
from wench77 :
yowza... diaryland template! Glad to see you back, we missed you! Big hugs and thanks for stopping by. BTW I can totally relate to what you say. I've had moments in my life of "I'll get a grip tomorrow". I guess the only remedy to that is just starting with small things right away when I think that, instead of tomorrow. It is so hard to get out of the "tomorrow" thing.... my physical fitness is in that circle right now. grrrr.

from chaosdaily :
hi melinda :-) glad to see you back. sorry about your template..... hope you are ok..
from leonmcphelps :
The writting was good today, but I can see how you don't like it. I am pretty stupid sometimes. I am pretty glad you like my face though, that's my "Strutting to pick up the ladies face". So, you find it attractive huh? Or just funny?
from dangerspouse :
Ok, it's well past "tomorrow", baby! Where's the new template? (Although I personally rather enjoy purple-on-purple, lol) :)
from mr-knowitall :
Hi!
from chaosdaily :
nice template!! it shouldnt be hard to fix the link things.... but great pic and nice layout...
from leonmcphelps :
Well I thought you would like it due to the fact that I give a pretty strong Scandanavian reference there a couple of times. Come Melinda, Volhalla and Leif Erickson in the same entry. That one was all for you. My swim trunks are actually an American Flag. I love them, they are quite comfortable and they ride really low so everyone can see the "V" in all it's majesty.
from leonmcphelps :
Well, you sound surprised that I can be polite. "Thank you for the nice note Leon, even though you are an arrogant prick". I am joking, but I just thought I would check in. I am glad to know that you still check in on Leon from time to time. I hope you still find it amusing. You know you will have to choose the pose, but I will just say that I think you will like pierce1 the best. I know if you don't want to use it I will. Let me know if you like them, and I will certainly work on it when you get it to me. Have a nice night over there in Europe. http://leonmcphelps.diaryland.com/images/pierce1.jpg http://leonmcphelps.diaryland.com/images/pierce2.jpg http://leonmcphelps.diaryland.com/images/pierce3.jpg We can put you in any one of these, or you can look and see if you have another you would prefer.
from leonmcphelps :
Do you like them? I was under the impression that women found men's feet nasty. I on the other hand like a nice female foot, not to say that it is erotic, but it's nice. So how are things going across the pond? I haven't heard from you in a while. You know I found a nice picture of Pierce Brosnan, if you get me a good picture of you I can make your dreams come true. Thanks for the comment and I hope things are well.
from komachi :
Your son sounds absolutely sweet!! I wish we all could hear him sing :-)
from sunnflower :
Don't worry about the multiple notes - I can use all the Mother's Day wishes I can get. Happy Mother's Day to you too. I am so glad you are writing here again. I really missed reading your diary.
from wench77 :
Ah, I'd rather be wrong on this one. I am sorry. Pretty lady like you shouldn't be at home alone with a 3yr old and a broken washing machine.
from ohswim :
Oh, dear. You must be very careful cooking without your head. You will not be able to smell the food burning if you leave it on too long....:)....I loved your entry today. Dr. D.
from wench77 :
where oh where did melinda go?? we miss you!
from komachi :
opps... finger *prInts* :-p
from komachi :
I can so relate to your latest entry. All the dust bunnies, and fingerpronts...etc... :-) I didn't realize until now, it IS on those beautiful days that we "moms" get this urge to clean, isn't it? Yeah..and never on rainy days. ~K.
from wench77 :
Hi. I'm putting this in your notes cuz messages only lets me write a couple lines. Here is what the messages said: "melinda: hm....i didnt really get that your and you're...english is confusing sometimes.........quite often.......now and then." after I said this:"wench77: These quizzes are bad. I am an ear. It says I never tell anyone else anything. That is the opposite of me. I am miss TMI. wench77: I am a crow too. I want to be an owl. I wonder what "nappreciated" is, once we take off the "un"... ??? Does it have to do with naps?? zzz".. I don't understand what is confusing. I took the two quizzes you had done. It said I was a crow, which I wasn't happy with because I wanted to be an owl (since they are wise and are up all night )... I wrote that about the "napping" since the crow description said we were "unnappreciated". If the opposite of "unhappy" is "happy" then the opposite of "unnappreciated" is "nappreciated"... which of course is not a word... I was just playing with the fact the word was mispelled by putting in two n's at the start. And the second note, I did the body part quiz and it said I am an ear. For the description of me as an ear, it said I listen to everyone but don't talk. Which of course is not like me at all. I am totally known for talking alot. Very much. Talk talk talk. So I said those are bad quizzes. As in the results don't feel like they fit me at all. Does that help with understanding what I wrote? I will try not to write in your "messages" anymore, since I write VERY short sentences with no explaining, or it tells me my post is too long. So when I write SHORT SHORT sentences then my writing is rather cryptic. Sorry! hugs! That is a funny story about the rug, with all the sighing and the bunnies, but I am sure you didn't see it that way when you were stuck cleaning on a nice day. tah!
from hissandtell :
Hi - just found you through im2qt2kr's entry today - am enjoying the read. Love, R
from leonmcphelps :
Well that is a shock. I knew you had a thing for Pierce but I had no idea you were that fond of Woody.
from im2qt2kr :
It's a scary world we're living in (even at the end of it). The toilet nanny I purchased off of ebay. I'll try and remember to tell my first male guest reaction in another entry. Hugs!
from sunnflower :
I like your entry about the box and what you would put in it that reflected your life.
from eggsaucted :
That's a good point. But why does she have to feel safe in the middle of my queen sized bed? It should be big enough for the two of us. Really it should be. Last night she didn't even want me to touch her. Whatever I love her like crazy so she can keep right on sleeping in the middle of my bed.
from wench77 :
heya... why don't you just send him an email?? He loves to get emails! I think since he got out of the hospital like two weeks ago he totally revamped his site. It seems that the photo, profile and all have changed. You could say "hi" and also tell him about your problem... maybe he knows what "extras" he put! [email protected]
from wench77 :
hiya! Maybe you have a problem with realaudio (I don't have it so I cannot hear whatever he has on his site... I just get a warning window that I need to add a plugin, which I ignore)... cuz I have no problem seeing his site... it doesnt freeze up or anything... aaagh re problems with fancy plugins!! (what i call "dancing bunnies") good luck!
from kittyleopard :
cool diary.

from mr-knowitall :
Hi yourself ;)
from wench77 :
OMG, that is like a reply from my brothers' "friends" when they were that age.. one of their "best friends" who was our next door neighbor, ie lived at our place stole from our house regularly. Then his sister, my friend, got for her birthday a music album I was missing, etc etc. Finally we ended up writing our names on everything we owned. Even then their mother would say "oh your brothers probably just wrote their names on MY son's toy"... it was horrid. To end the story, they moved away, but the mom ended up dying as a homeless drunk on the streets after years of psychiatric care. I have no idea what happened to the lying stealing "best friend"... sometimes there is nothing to do but stop associating with people... I'm sorry, esp since your son's "best friend" is the son of YOUR friend. :(
from leonmcphelps :
Thanks, you are exactly right. "My Nude Photo" would work really well. Thanks
from leonmcphelps :
I am just messing with you. I was born in America. My ancestors were Irish. I have the best of both in me. But thanks for signing my book. I appreciate it. I want as many signatures as possible.
from leonmcphelps :
Thanks for being so quick, but I said "International", not foreigner. Come on, and by the way I am Irish. Couldn't you tell, a short awesome dude with blonde hair. That screams Irish .
from leonmcphelps :
Well thank you. I am glad you like it. I like it a lot better than my old one, and I also have a guestmap now. You have to sign it, you will be my first international pin.
from wench77 :
hehe, reading what was written just below about the little doggy... at one point my brother (about 9 years old) started biting me (I was 11), and my dad told him if he didnt stop he would get only dog food for dinner. He stopped. LOL! I thought I'd tell you what I said in French in your little message thingie (where we cannot write more than 200 characters!) I said "It's really not a bad thing to want some spice in your wise goodgirl's life. I wish you adventures with gorgeous guys" hehe. Well, at least in your head! :)
from leonmcphelps :
Well thank you. Thank you very much. I am glad you approve.
from mr-knowitall :
Well thanks for snooping! and sorry it took me so long to respond! I've been 'snooping' yours a little too, and you've been making me wax nostalgic with all the stories of your kids. Mine are all teens now. Did you threaten to take him to the dog pound? Maybe put him on a leash in the backyard? Eat dogfood? Oh, I would have too much with that!!
from cassiopeia- :
Happy Valentine's Day! kisses, cassie
from dangerspouse :
Hey babe! Thanks for the nice, thoughtful note over at my place. I'm glad you're still sticking around, despite your unease at that one post. Thanks!
from wench77 :
Hiya! I just want to say how much I enjoy reading your diary, with your grumpy morningness, and your kids and your teenagers (hehe we are ALL like that ... I turned my alarm off and slept longer than I planned the past three days and didnt get to the bank again!) and your chatty friend with the painted on shirts and big breasts. Thankyou! :)
from sunnflower :
First, your home situation is a xerox copy of my morning with regard to my 14 year old son. My 17 year old daughter used to be a slow start in the morning but she is so responsible now that it's just inspiring. And about the tweezers - it's what you pluck (or tweeze) eyebrows with!
from treewillow :
I have no idea why they figure they need to lie even when they have been caught red handed. And thank you.
from im2qt2kr :
I'm sorry Melinda, as I too have a great love for children. Unfortunately, I gave that dream up because of caregiving for Mom. I know from your words, that you are a fabulous Mother. And, after reading you entry, I find that we have a great deal more in common (Most of your list actually)
from im2qt2kr :
If you do decide to adopt, you will be glad you did. My Brother and his wife, were able to speed up the process, by being Foster Parents. When a Foster child goes up for adoption, the Foster parents usually have first chance at adoption. My two nephews (adopted Brothers) are wonderful!
from chaosdaily :
well thanks for the message melinda:)
from dangerspouse :
Who gave me the fourth blowjob? Well, let's just say that I'm *very* flexible. Great to see you again, kiddo! :)
from ohswim :
No problem. Send double messages anytime..;) I deleted one. You make a good point and I will have to make sure to make it clear that this is not a hint to look elsewhere....thanks
from im2qt2kr :
Poor babies! But I'm flattered I was able to bring you a little joy. I'm glad we've met.
from gumphood :
hehe. It's is pretty weird isn't it...but the best part is that you get feedback, you make friends, and you have a never ending supply of things to read. And when you get hit by a search engine...ain't nothing like it.
from im2qt2kr :
Well, whatever the reason you do choose to write it, I am very glad you do. I have enjoyed reading your diary. And, d-land has allowed me to meet a few kind, and wonderful people, like yourself. So from those of us who enjoy snooping into your World, thank you!
from im2qt2kr :
Why? I read it as a reality check. A way of knowing someone, somewhere out there shares some of the same thoughts, feelings, and emotions that I have at times time. If I'm not normal, that perhaps at least I'm a part of the bunch who's also not.
from spritopias :
they're all gone now, ;-) but did you vote?
from sunnflower :
Hi - The Do Bee and Don't Bee were part of the old Romper Room Show which was a children's program. You do want to be a Do Bee as the Do Bee's doing things right in the Romper Room classroom. I'm not surprised about the money running low for your sun. It happens to the best of us in those exciting situations. We're enjoying snow too.
from leonmcphelps :
Well if you would like I can fix up a nice picture of you and Mel. All I need is the picture of you. I do that sort of thing around here for peoples birthdays and things like that. Last month we had a girl I work with put on a cake with her dream guy, Kevin Bacon. I am glad you like the pictures, I spend a lot of time on them and they seem to make people laugh. There are a lot of diaries on here that are way too serious. Much more serious than yours or mine.
from wench77 :
I tried to post again to the tag thing about my diary, but too wordy once more. I thought of moving the diary, I did. I dunno. I have paid Gold Plus for one year. I don't know about taking it down and moving over 200 entries where all the urls are diaryland. My god. I used to give my diary URL to friends when I wrote about something we did together for instance. Most didnt read beyond that. Or they are people I already tell everything to. Or I hoped people would realize it is a diary, not megapronouncements. Like I wrote. I will try to forget about worrying and just go on. thanks for the note!
from leonmcphelps :
You have a nice picture there, but I think you can do much better. Come on. I used to be very shy, and this lovely diary has helped me come out of my shell. I think you should do the same. Let this photographic genius see your photo's. By the way, I tried to put a pin in your map, but I can't get it to work. Can you tell me what I am doing wrong.
from im2qt2kr :
How sweet of you! Thank you.
from cottonblossm :
Yeah I guess you have to be a goldmember. :/ But then you only get 10,000 banner views that run out FAST and you have to buy more. Poo.
from onewetleg :
hi, thank you for the note. did you design the diary yourself? it looks really good. and yeah, it's not any harder to make 3 key strokes for you than it is too make one for 'u' gah! he had written to me before and did the same thing and got the same response. what a weenie. love,
from cassiopeia- :
Did you make the tag yourself for the make a child smile site? I am not seeing it there anywhere!
from ohswim :
My friend. I would like to respectfully disagree with you when you say this is a big weakness. Your feelings only show your compassion. You don't want to hurt other people and are distressed when you knowingly or unknowingly make someone upset. Not telling someone something that you think might make them upset or pissed is not being weak, it is being tactful. As long as you aren't just agreeing with things you don't really agree with, then you are practicing diplomicy (sp, sorry).....btw, love the new picture. dr.d.
from sunnflower :
Thanks for adding Suburban Island to your list of favorites. Actually I was planning on adding your diary to mine but have not been organized enough this week to get all my diary things done.
from hornycookie :
Jan22nd. Mwa hahah! Good Luck With The Dishes ;). You'll Pass Through It: I Believe In You :P. YOU CAN DO IT!! WOOT WOOT !! lol...(Okay I'm Going Crazy ;)) Take Care! ~Clau
from sunnflower :
The kid photo is precious.
from realminto :
For some reason I was expecting 'Owen Meany' to be funnier than it was, but I enjoyed it immensely. Definitely one to read again. What struck me most was how Owen's intellect and personality gave him a stature far above his physique, and also how all the strands came together at the end, for example 'the shot'.
from sexyoldman :
I dont'know what happened to the images in my diary...I'll contact the person who made it. I was thinking it was probably just my computer. And, I think nude pictures are a GREAT idea! lol
from some-trouble :
Hiya, a while back you stopped by my diary and signed my guestmap but I've only just got an e-mail from Bravenet telling me someone signed so I apologise for not writing sooner. Your diary is great and I'll definitely be back soon to read more!
from wench77 :
hehe, we call that "pulling a onewetleg" cuz she does that!... send notes to herself meant for other people! ahhh, now your boots thing makes sense. If I hadn't sold my ice skates, I could still have the same ones since I'm 16, cuz I'd have used them about 5 or 6 times! :) Which explains why I sold em!
from wench77 :
hey, thanks for noticing such little things about my drawings! :) No I dont think it strange to put your pic on your template... I've definitely seen others who do. I like it.
from moodymelinda :
the thing is.....that i only wear those boots when i hike in the wintertime, and that doesnt happen too often...thanks for the notes by the way....its fun to communicate this way:-)
from wench77 :
hey, you put a whole slew of pics into your album! (is there someway to go to the next photo without going back to the index?)... the snow ones are cute but I loved the bread faces and the food ones... mmmm. homemade buns! mmmm decorated cakes!! I cannot believe you wear the same boots as when you were 16, I even resole my boots and they still die after about 5 years. What does your husband do that you don't know when he'll be home??

hehe, well, when your message thingie wouldnt take my message, I tried to copy and paste it into your notes, but your message thingie ate all the first part since it was too long, and I was too tired to start again! hehehe wonder away! I like your new pic, is it you? I can see from your messages that you weren't sure how to do it but it looks great now! congrats! As for the little boy... they just are like that aren't they! LOL! Just think how good an illustrator of kids I would be if I actually ever saw any! (the whole plan was to have my own!) now i'll go read your entry!
from hornycookie :
By The Way...Are You French? Or Well, What's Your First Language? Cuz I've Noticed That You Need Your English Dictonary and Everything So I Assumed...?? :P Whatever. I'm French! Nice To "Meet" You! lol
from hornycookie :
Jan18th.04. Aw! LoL "Melinda The Snoop" I loved that entry and I totally understand it. I personnaly don't chat with strangers cuz theyre full of crap lol Naw but seriously I can still know what you mean anyway. I chat a lot too with my friends that I don't see anymore cuz I've moved. so it's similar kinda :). anyways. I really find u interesting; You're going in my favourites now! TeeHee Take Care. ~Clau
from chaosdaily :
me too... *wink*
from hornycookie :
Jan17th.04. Jeez That lil'boi doesn't seem to be a good friend either...I would suggest you to just try to talk about it alone with your boys. Explain how he acts and see what are your boys reactions. They might think this bahavior is 'Normal'...Theyre learning. Be there :). Take care. ~
from chaosdaily :
gee why do i have this craving for spaghetti???
from im2qt2kr :
I don't have to have children for my heart to go out to you. You are in my thoughts.
from chaosdaily :
awww... not just another day. hugs melinda
from cottonblossm :
I'm very sorry about the baby, and this is probably what you just don't care to hear...but God takes His children when He wants them. As painful as it was for you, maybe it was just His way to make you appreciate life even more. Sometimes life is unexplainable, and I think that's when we really take the time to realize what we have. Have a good day. :)
from sunnflower :
Sorry about the miscarriage. That's a terrible thing for any woman to have to suffer.
from sunnflower :
Yeah, the photos are fun to add in but you're right - it's extra cash to do it. When you think about it, it's not that bad really for a whole year if you really like adding images to your diary and are going to do it regularly. About the neon lights and what I'll do with them. The OPEN one is on top the refrigerator. It looks amazing and sheds a lovely amber-pink light. The martini light - my son wanted it for his room - too cool. The palm tree will go in our family room - I am working on giving it a tropical feel. It looks beautiful - especially at night.
from cassiopeia- :
Four years ago I found out that I was pregnant and miscarried all in the same day. Of course I blame myself still, what if, etc. Take care, Sandy
from ohswim :
I enjoyed the horse choir. I hope you feel more secure tonight and that the serial killer has moved on to the next town. I know you miss your man. I'm sure he misses you and the kids when he is away. I guess some jobs just suck.
from cassiopeia- :
If I had the cash I would buy you a gold memebership! ")
from cottonblossm :
I've got one, just gotta stick it in the html for this new layout. Thanks for reminding me! :D
from sunnflower :
Hi from Suburban Island - yes, that's my dream house too. It's a 1956 ad from America's Independent Power Companies called electricity for a new kind of living. I think it's brilliant.
from cottonblossm :
That is all too common. When I'm here by myself, and I hear something...I grab my blue glass vase and go tippy toeing around the house ready to break it over someone's head at a moment's notice! But there's never anyone there...
from sunnflower :
I've had that creepy scary feeling too and figured I'd just go to sleep and hopefully all would be well tomorrow. I always slept well when I was a teenager and we had a dog in the house but I am really kind of allergic to them so that doesn't work for me. Oh for a yappy little dog to scare the imaginary buglar away!
from cassiopeia- :
I feel like that sometimes myself but usually when I am in a parking lot by myself. It is terrible we have to feel like this at all.
from chaosdaily :
i know how you feel, sometimes i would swear someone is in the house, but its usually just the cats playing at night and making noise
from cassiopeia- :
I do that all the time with bills, receipts too! Sandy
from chaosdaily :
ive done that, put things away so i wouldnt lose them, and forgot where i put them.... thanks for the notes melinda
from komachi :
Thanks! I am still reading that darn handbook~ Ohh..well....eventually I will finish I am sure. :) ~K.
from gnomad :
Heh .. thanks for signing my guestmap. Mostly because it lead me to your journal, which I'm really enjoying. Off to read more ...
from wench77 :
hiya! I liked your musings on God or not today. thanks! Also, I think my friend is just a quiet person who doesnt deal well with having her routines disheveled and I am very disheveling. Oh well! It was not the first nor the last time that she showed that I exceed her limits. Note that over the past 19 years of our connaissance, she has thanked me once or twice for having opened her mind and making her grow as a person. sigh. I still dont like feeling that i cause people unhappiness and wishing I werent there.
from aggiejason05 :
Hi Melinda, and thanks for leaving me a message. I tried to reach you through Yahoo!, but you weren't available. I'd like to talk to you more, so if you'd like to email me, please feel free to...my email is [email protected] Take care, be safe, and I hope to talk to you soon! =D

Hi there! Thanks for signing my Guest Map. I keep trying to sign Guest Maps and I'm not having any luck! :( I'm enjoying your diary and will continue to catch up!
from wisdom4who :
Thanks for the kind note. Keep writing.
from wench77 :
well, yeah, you were pretty young,non? that is normal. And i am pretty confrontational! I hope it makes the idiots think the next time, but I suspect they just think "whoa, that was one nasty broad" and then go on to harrass the next girl. But at least it doesnt make me feel so invaded to give as good as they do.
from wench77 :
Yeah, what was your answer? I get that walking up my street (since where it ends is where the bar is I go, and is in a not so good area of town)... I get "are you working?" I answer "I am a children's illustrator. Do you see a drawing table? Does it look like i'm working? Are you working?" or somesuch. I also say things like "what is your problem? Do you see me driving around bugging strange men asking them how much for sex? Go rent a video and jerk off and leave people alone!" But then I am a blabbermouth, and also you were way younger. As for the loser couples... no you are right, that is why I wrote what I did... the actual website is called losers.com or something, so that is what I put. But they ARE sickeninly sweet... and did you ever hear about "adoptions" meaning getting a drawing of an online bear on your webpage etc before? strange.
from im2qt2kr :
Decided to check out your diary, but have only read latest entry so far. I was glad that this man only "Said" something to you, and didn't try to grab you and act upon it. I too have been guilty of "over-trust" and walking over to a car to help people, but know now, that I was just very lucky.
from sexyoldman :
I'll give the cleaning windows thing a try (actually I clean the windows about every two months as it is) however, do you suggest I wear something special? And you know what they say, cleaning windows leads to cleaning carpet! Thanks
from cassiopeia- :
But what was your answer???
from cottonblossm :
Thanks for the link! I appreciate it. :)
from im2qt2kr :
Thank you so much for taking time to write. Doses of reality can really "sting" when they slap you in the face, especially with all the other "stuff" (to put nicely) I've gone through recently (all in diary too.) I'll get past it, and soon hopefully. I look forward to checking out your diary. I love meeting new D-land folks.
from chaosdaily :
yea, "nothing, mom" is definetly a clue that disaster is about to strike
from cassiopeia- :
Oh My Goodness! Thanks for the warning! Sandy
from wench77 :
oh, I never had a digital camera! I just have my really bad polaroid, and my 35mm... and it always takes so long... ie wrong lense, or I have it set on a weird aperture, so I probably wouldn't have captured the kids either. Though sometimes it works out, like when kitty astrixes was making dirty kitty prints in the bathroom when I washed the swisschard (they are posted in my older entries under chard kitty or somesuch! LOL!) now I am smoking the hookah and trying not to return to my diary to wow everyone with my brilliant thoughts!! hehe! You know I believe I could become one of those opium smokers. That was one of my brilliant thoughts! LOL! have a great day!!
from wench77 :
about "cuz mom says so"... I sometimes wished my dad wouldve said that when I was a teenager, rather than give me "reasons" that I would solve (ie "you don't have a lift", and then I'd call around and get a lift, and then there'd be another reason..) when it all came down to "cuz I say so". But for the "why?" thing, the answer was "to make little girls ask questions!" when patience ran out! Can't argue with that one! :) Try it next time!
from wench77 :
oh my gosh about the old man! That was great you took care of him, but horrid that it seems no one close to him was concerned! Like you say this will likely happen again with horrid consequences! But for now he's ok!
from wench77 :
of course it matters! thanks for the nice comment! :) That is a great toilet paper story! Did you get a picture before they "cleaned it all up"?? That is the kind of thing that only happens once! And boy, what good kids! they actually LISTENED to you! :)
from chaosdaily :
wow good thing you were there to take him home. he was obviously confused, and probably wouldnt have made it without you
from ohswim :
*Smile*. They are so cute at that age. And that REALLY is the reason after all. "Because mom says so". Also read as "Because mom loves you and knows that it better for you to enjoy the fresh air than just watch videos". Also read as "because I love you so much and want to enjoy this special time with you together playing in the snow", etc. eet.c lllove dr. d
from chaosdaily :
you know, thats one of the things i swore i would never say to my kids, yet i find myself saying it more and more..... because i said so... they hate hearing it too
from dangerspouse :
While my computer is working - for who knows how long *this* time - I thought I'd pop by and thank you for the nice notw over at my place. Thanks! And Happy New Year to you, too :)
from sexyoldman :
Thanks for the note. I hope you have a wonderful New Years and best of luck to your husband on the water.
from cassiopeia- :
Sometimes things have to be scary so we can have the relaxed easy going times. Hugs!
from leonmcphelps :
Why thank you. That is very nice of you. I hope you have a nice New Year also, even though I missed it by a day or so.
from maxxdogg :
Melinda, thank you for the note. Happy New Year to you and yours as well.
from fallenout408 :
I jsut stumbled across your diary..and i enjoyed reading it. =)Happy Holidays
from komachi :
Thank you:-) I hope your new year will be filled with happiness.
from chaosdaily :
happy new year to you too melinda, i look forward to continue reading your diary next year. hugs
from ohswim :
Thank you for the note. Happy New Year to you also. Dr. d.
from chaosdaily :
thanks, its nice to know hes only acting normally, even if no one likes the way he acts.
from jonathan :
Thanks for coming over and leaving a note! Jonathan xx
from leonmcphelps :
Thanks. I am a big fan of cool pants, and those were perfect, just like MC Hammer, only a little more awesome.
from maxxdogg :
I like the poll and I want to participate, but I have to go off list. Cats are under my bed.. lots of cats.
from oomm :
Thank you for the note in my diary! I love yours so far. So what IS the strangest thing you've ever read in someone elses diary?
from sleepymom :
I don't know why husbands even think that we won't eat the chocolate if it is brought into the house. After 13 years of marriage, my husband knows that if it is in the house it will be gone, so if HE wants it, he better not bring it home!!! Why try? I love your new layout by the way. The picture is exactly how I imagined your area. You must write very well! -Sandi
from dangerspouse :
It takes strength to not eat hidden chocolate. Good luck with that next Christmas!
from cassiopeia- :
Thank you for letting me know about the comments, they had not been turned on! I LUV my cats so much! I really love to carry them from room to room and it is funny to see their long bodies streched out and half drug on the floor as I do so. They love it, they really do! kisses, cassie
from sexyoldman :
Thanks for the note and advice re webcams and chatrooms. Those chatrooms are like fishing, some days are luckier than others. Take care.
from dangerspouse :
Hi! I just saw you've added me to your Buddy List. Thanks, that's very flattering! I've been reading your diary for a while now, and really enjoy it. The cookie story is great!
from cassiopeia- :
My mom feels the same way...go figure! I'll be three in March.
from cassiopeia- :
Sending you sun from the sunshine state! kisses, cassie
from sleepymom :
I didn't know that you had also had a pregnancy loss. Wow. I can HONESTLY say that I know just how you feel. I just lost a baby too, and a close friend delivered a day later. I didn't even want to hold her baby. Just take it one day at a time, some days are better...others...who knows. Your definitely not crazy, or maybe I am too? Your diary is great.
from maxxdogg :
sometimes you are touched by someone's words, even if that someone is a total stranger, and you want to reach across the miles and comfort them and tell them things will be okay. sometimes you want to be able to give someone the same hope and strength they have given to others. sometimes words are not enough but they have to do. be at peace.
from komachi :
"sometimes i say things are ok......when they are not. some times i think that if i start to cry then i will not be able to stop.some times i am happy. some times i am not." You wrote what has been on my mind there...It feels like I am not alone...after all. :) Thank you. ~K.
from maxxdogg :
Your entry was fine, Melinda. Someone was being too literal with the translation. "My gold" is obviously a term of endearment. Your son, very charmingly, turned that expression back on you. I get it and I think it's adorable!
from sexyoldman :
A walkabout...hmm, perhaps. I suggest some exercise of some kind where you are alone...waking, biking, jogging, yoga...whatever. You need time to de-compress. I hope you're feeling better soon.
from banshee-rose :
Hey thanks for your note. I think I'll just put them all on ignore then thanks.
from cassiopeia- :
You mean that kids have to go to the dentist? I am not happy with all of these teeth issues. Did your kids ever bite anyone? Today I get to find out if I am allowed to stay in pre-school. *pout* I didn't mean to do it! kisses, cassie
from unclebob :
It saddens me that you have no idea who the Wiggles are. They're only the biggest band in the world right now. You know...if you're only polling two year-olds. Go to their website ... http://www.thewiggles.com
from owenmeany99 :
hi! Thanks for the note! Of course I remember chatting with you at Yahoo! Nice to hear from you! :) bye O
from sleepymom :
Hi there. I am also throwing a birthday party, but it is on Sat. for my son. I was wondering if I could borrow your "fishing for candy" idea. I need a game and the game I had planned didn't work. I won't be giving out candy, but I need a way to pass out the little toy cars I bought to be the gift for the winners of the game that didn't work. I loved your fishing idea!
