from luna-star- :
I fixed my notes but, you have my email and that is always better!
from giannarazi :
Better update soon. I'm missing you!!! *Hugs*
from giannarazi :
Happy Thanksgiving!! **Hugs**
from luna-star- :
where the heck are u?? should we be worried?
from giannarazi :
*snickers* *stifles laughters* *rotfl* Oh my that is the funniest thing I've seen in a long time. Thank you for this!! I'm sending it to everyone I know. Ha ha.
from thecrankyone :
So glad to hear you're okay. Nobody is crossed off my list. If you see a line thru your name on my page, its just part of my code that does that to links you have visted recently. You were probably at your page before comming to mine. Sorry about that!!
from nixtress :
I'm SOOOO glad to see you're going okay. I was really worried about you :)
from wyndspirit :
Thank God you're OK! I know we've all been worried when you vanished, and then Katrina came along. Welcome back!
from thecrankyone :
Amazing. I am so glad you are okay and make it out okay. I was thinking about you the whole time. I can't begin to imagine what it must have been like to be there.
from giannarazi :
Yes I saw the pretty Empty Nest image. It's very beautiful.
from giannarazi :
for the left side being wider or more to the left - there should be something about the width in the html stuff. Should be like a <.table>.<.align=right.height.width=".numbers."> so on and so forth. Take out the periods. You can always play with it in notepad first. If you still get stuck let me know and I'll help you out. P.S. I'm SO SO glad you are back online. I was thinking of you the other day and said I needed to write you. Voila you are home!! Hee hee. I have MISSED you!!!
from myexodus :
Holy crap!!!!! The joy of seeing you in red!!! But, damn you wicked wench for having us all think you were dead!!!
from catpewk :
Girl, I don't even care if you hate our asses - at least let us know you is living!
from myexodus :
Mel, my thoughts are with you so often through out the day. I pray that all is well.
from thecrankyone :
I am not sure if you will even be able to read this, but I didn't know how else to contact you. I just want to say my best prayers and wishes are with you and your family, along with all your fellow NOLA residents. I hope you are all well and fine, and were able to get out. I am thinking of you.
from needisaymore :
Haven't read nor written on diaryland in years and it looks as though you haven't either. . . I looked you up as a result of the horrors surrounding your precious hometown this week. Prayers are with you. Hope you are ok.
from myexodus :
Mel, please update or have someone do it for you. I'm very worried about you. You've never gone this long without updating.
from catpewk :
Mel, you still out there? Are you ok? Even if you don't want to update anymore, please let us know you're still with us...
from hamiltonian :
Well I guess it is good to see someone happy to live in New Orleans. Have a wonderful 2005..
from some-trouble :
Happy New Year! I hope 2005 is a fabulous year for you. XXX
from some-trouble :
Hiya, I just wanted to wish you and your family a Merry Xmas. I hope you have a lovely day! From Jo XXX
from giannarazi :
Ms. Mel... **Hugs** Where are you?? It's been a month now. I hope you are okay. **Hugs** I miss hearing how you are doing. I hope you are safe and okay. I also hope you are not in the hospital with troubles. **Hugs** Please update soon. I miss hearing from you.
from summerkitty :
hi! I've locked my diary for now. You can e-mail at akity84@yahoo.com for the password if you're still interested in reading my diary :)
from boxx9000 :
HAPPY HALLOWEEN......BOO!
from giannarazi :
Ms. Mel where are you? Are you okay? **Hugs** I'm missing your entries. I hope you are doing well and are okay. I'm sending well wishes and positive thoughts. *hugs*
from boxx9000 :
P.S. I'm not pissed at the girls. I was just rather shocked. Last November I had to look for a rental of my own after 25 years of marriage and all the landlords were so strict. I couldn't believe that the girls got a place with misinformation on their rental application. I guess a co-signer makes all the difference. I now have almost one year of my own rental history.
from boxx9000 :
Never mind about the outrageous income the girls reported, what about just basic honesty? They signed an official document that was lies? Did someone really rent to them? Even tho they outright lied on their application? AMAZING!
from pashiesplace :
Love the pic of you!
from myexodus :
I'm glad things aren't ending on a bitter note with you and Laura. Hope all goes well your way Mel. ~~Barbara aka Neurotic-One Ps...I just hit your older entries and realize, I've not missed any of your updates.
from hamiltonian :
nice journal... love the style
from newfoundsoul :
hey mel...guess what...i was in monroe and shreveport about a week ago for like 2 weeks and you should have emailed me cause it would have been cool to meet you...but yeah i just got another tattoo on my back like 20 minutes ago...its a big black cross...i will post pics of it soon...ttyl...dizzy
from boxx9000 :
I just read your diary entry about WHY you closed your old diary. I just recently deleted about 700 entries because I felt paranoid that I had too much info about myself "out there" Thanks for the code, I will definitely use it from now on.
from momma-zoe :
I love your diary. Do you mind if I add you to my list of faves? it's awesome your doing so well with MS! My doctors were saying Lupus or MS..Well Lupus was just ruled out.....*sighs* I'm going to go thru your entries and read everything you've wrote about MS!! I want to be fine!!! :)
from poolagirl :
I think your daughter is one of those kids who is going to grow up after life smacks her upside the head. College will be good for her. Where is she going? Better question is - WHEN is she going?
from enigma104 :
Hi there, I just wanted to let you know that I added you to my fav. list(because I think your diary is great, hehe). Anyway, I really hope you dont mind! Cheers, {[alex]}
from summerkitty :
I just wanted to thank you for the amazing review! and thank you for taking the time to browse through my diary.
from newfoundsoul :
thanks melanie....lotta love your way...
from poolagirl :
Hey lady, if people don't have anything better to do than worry about what your GROWN children might want to do while living their ADULT lives, then just fuck 'em! You are a wonderful lady, and if people stop reading you because they disagree with something you say, well......fuck 'em! I'm glad to see that you are writing again, dear one. And, as always, I am thrilled to see you in RED on my buddy list!
from myexodus :
Thought I'd leave a note. My words ended at the neurotic one and I have since moved.
from catpewk :
Mel - I know there's a lot of pain hidden behind them words...I hope you get strong soon. I'll light a candle for you.. there.. it's lit :)
from firefirefly :
Thanks for the review! I love your diary too, for a mum, you seem very energetic and young... (that's a compliment =) ). Your daughter looks like Britney!
from shiningdawn :
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY TO YA
from chaosdaily :
welcome back, i missed you too!
from poolagirl :
So glad you are BACK! YAY!
from vividdreamer :
God...all this time I've been wondering where you were, but I had no idea it was something so serious! I'm SO glad you're okay, and that things are going better. I wish I'd have known sooner, because I'd have sent you a get well package. *HUGE HUGS*
from webster :
Mel, What's up? Is MS kicking your butt? Time for an up-date m'dear. I'm getting concerned. Such a gap is not like you. Hope you're well. Webster
from giannarazi :
Big hugs!! Hope you are doing alright!! Hope easter was good for you! Take care!
from poolagirl :
OMG! Take it easy! OMG! Glad you are home! OMG! Feel better soon! OMG!
from sunnflower :
Visiting off foursquare's favorite's list. Great diary!
from gumphood :
I have been reading you are going through a lot. I hope everything works out for the best...and you know how to make something ungoogleable. Let me know!
from verdant-life :
Hi, once upon a time, you left me a guest book entry, on how to make your site "un-google-able" (is that a word??) Anyway, I've lost that information, and was wondering if you could leave me another post on the html tags that you would use to go under the google radar. Thanks, Verdant-life
from poolagirl :
YAY! I want to come see the Mardi Gras too! I want to paint my face green and wear a "Queen of Spank" sign on my butt!
from poolagirl :
Nice to see an update - and a really GOOD update too! Nice photos!
from chaosdaily :
interesting entry!! i just got a note in my guestbook, because i had checked my daughters history, and found she was reading my diary, so i told her she couldnt. the note-er wanted to know how i could yell at her for reading me and not respecting my privacy when i was checking her history. do you feel bad about the monitor? i dont think so. do i feel bad about checking the kids history? NO!! they are minors, and we need to keep track of what goes on, dont you think?
from giannarazi :
Hey!! Haven't heard from you in a while. Are you doing okay? How are things your way? Many hugs and know you are thought of dearly.
from eucalia :
Thanks for your interest in my site! Basically all I need right now is some review submissions (here how: <http://bookblog.diaryland.com/submit.html>), people to tell their friends about it so they will submit reviews too, and some feedback about the site (design/setup/anything!).
from eucalia :
Hi there! I wanted to let you know that I recently started up a site where people can read and submit book reviews. It's called The Book Blog and you can find it at http://bookblog.diaryland.com. Right now it's sorely in need of contributions and I was wondering if you would be interested in submitting a review or if you happen to know anyone else who would be interested. Thanks!
from poolagirl :
YAY! Yes, it was actually pretty easy. I just downloaded a template from Pieces of You. It was like one of those manufactured homes - plug and go. But I like it! And I managed to get rid of the diaryring in the middle of my page! YAY! So glad you like it!
from wyndspirit :
My zen room is my childhood bedroom, marigold yellow and all. I loved it then with the earthly childhood possessions of a packrat stuffed around me in my 10x10 haven, and the funny thing is, it still has the same melting-relaxing effect now with a strange bed and piles of stored boxes.
from needisaymore :
I am packing now and will be arriving in your Zen Room soon. . . I wish! Sounds fabulous! I may not have a room like that, but I can visualize it and calm down immediately! Lucky you!
from flyinby :
I LOVE to color! LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!
from eucalia :
Hi there! I just got to your journal from a link through hlm79 and I came across your book list. I'm a bit of a book-a-holic myself and I had a suggestion...what if you also put up short little reviews of books you have finished? That would be awesome!
from wyndspirit :
I hate to break it to you, but some of us are still living on dreams when we're 40. Sounds like son and I have too much in common. :( On the other hand, youngest sis Brenda just turned 26, has a stable job, and has OWNED HER OWN HOME for TWO YEARS now!!! (Of course, her fiance' is a bit of a loser, but who's perfect?)
from darkoverlord :
So I'm given an assignment, see? Because I keep complaining about being bored I'm told to plug Dark Overlord to random people. You have an interesting screen name, thus, here I am. Check us out at DOL, we're super cool AND have awesome adventures.
from wyndspirit :
I wanted to read 100 books last year. What a disaster that turned out to be! :( I knew a gal at a book club I used to attend who had read over 100 books by early fall, that's when I got curious enough to keep track of mine. But my preferred reading material is thick fantasy novels that are equal to 2-3 regular books each (balanced out by skinny little inspirational romances). We should start a 100-book club. Only requirements for belonging: you must seriously want to try to read 100 books in a year, and you must keep a tally somewhere on your site. (So far I am one book for one month. :( Not promising!) Maybe a 50-book club? :)
from flyinby :
Hehe, if only you COULD be there. :)
from flyinby :
Oh! I wish you had been MY mother. *big hug*
from poolagirl :
I concur with catpewk.
from catpewk :
Two books a month is 24 books - Two books a week is 104 books in a year :)
from poolagirl :
I have seen the Blue Dog gallery in Carmel, CA. The cheapest thing in the place was a wee little print for about $1,000.

*snort* Orgasm Girl *snort* *howl* *totally visualizing YOU* *snort*
from ktdream :
You're welcome for the note I left you! Glad you responded. Thanks for the suggestions on what to read on your site. Well I was just looking around your name came up.. I'm not scared of politics like that so I went. Sure of course you can put me in your favs-- I'd be thrilled! =) Thanks!
from ktdream :
Well this looked like a popular place, so I checked it out for myself. Definitely very cool and not too political or anything. The layout's so sweet and cute, old fashioned. I liked it a lot. All the pictures are angelic and lovely. And your wishlist was great.. I agree with what you have to say on that and liked the pictures you included.
from wyndspirit :
Oh, she got it, she's just being goofy herself. I almost left a similar comment referring to my Coke bottle of pennies. :)
from wyndspirit :
Hey, if somebody doesn't realize your wish list is satire and offers to build you a pool... Go for it!!! :)
from wyndspirit :
I don't mind YOUR wishlist. :) Maybe I should put up one of my own. You know, for the cost of that pool, I could get a much nicer mobile home OR a very nice car! (Well, for both, nicer than anything *I* have ever had!) I can't imagine the mindset of people who put up serious wishlists, though. I can't IMAGINE asking (begging) strangers for gifts. If you know me well enough to want to give me a gift, you know my address AND what I like! Or you at least know me well enough online to be comfortable exchanging addresses.
from poolagirl :
I wanna come see the graveyards! I learned to play the fiddle in a graveyard - years and years ago. The tradition says that the devil himself will appear in the graveyard and scare the bejeezuz out of you so much that you play that fiddle to keep him away! YAY! I didn't work. I can't play for shit.
from gimmelove :
How are the neighbors across the road? Last I read you they were just moving in, I think. Are they still around/alive? Take care! ((hugs))
from webster :
Hi Mel, I haven't been keeping my diary current, but I'm atill around! Had another relapse, but this time the pred. worked - YAY!! Just coming out of a deep freeze ... an arctic blast to start the new year. HAPPY NEW YEAR! Hope you're well. Webster
from newfoundsoul :
hey how are you? just checking on you...dizzy
from neurotic-one :
Its been longer than usual since your last update...how's everything going? Hope you have a wonderful new year.
from mspsyched1 :
I just wanted to stop by and say hello. I havent been around too much, but I still keep up with my reading. I hope you are having a great New Years. :)
from some-trouble :
Happy New Year Hon!!! Love 'n' Hugs, Jo XXX
from needisaymore :
Yes, the excitement of babies at Christmas can't be beat. Great games--but have you tried pool-a-girl's Chubby Bunny? It's a real winner no matter what the age!! Glad you are having a good Christmas. I'll forge ahead now and wish you the best for 2004!
from candoor :
and a semi-random merry happy to you :)
from flyinby :
Merry Christmas from one nut to another! Er . . . um . . . you are NOT a NUT! But your daughter IS! lol J/K I hope you have a Merry Christmas! Take care and God bless! ~ Jody 12/25
from some-trouble :
I just wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas hon. I hope that you and your family have a wonderful day together! Love, Jo XXX
from poolagirl :
*snort* Severed pigeon heads! OMG! You make me laugh, lady!
from newfoundsoul :
so how are you, its been a while since we last talked...dizzy
from wyndspirit :
But I LIKED your old template!!! *whine* I loved the old pictures. Ah, well, change is good, I guess. (I have the same design I started with. Exactly. I consider it my trademark. I will probably only change if Andrew improves D-land to allow us to keep old templates for old entries like some other diary sites do.)
from poolagirl :
Your reviewer is a friggin' ee-jitt! What does he mean by "Who are those people at the top of the page?" Well, DUHHHHHHHHHHH!
from sbspsd :
Your review is up at Sepia Reviews!
from hlm79 :
Oh my... Laughing my butt off at Daughter and the toilet escapade. But to answer you question, that's my little two year old daughter in the picture(s). :)
from wyndspirit :
Yes, actually, I thought it was HYSTERICAL. And, sorry, no, I DON'T think most people have quite such a...unique...approach to problems, so, no, I don't think that would happen in too many other families. (Their teens have their own strange ways of thinking.) But look at it this way... I know you want to strangle her right now, but bide your time. Once it hits home to her how totally stupid that was, you'll be able to embarrass her with it for the rest of your lives. Picture this... A couple years down the line... Daughter is engaged, or has a VERY serious boyfriend... You are all hanging around visiting... There is a lull in the conversation... And you pounce! And daughter begs you not to tell the story, but you draw out the suspense till boyfriend INSISTS on hearing it... And he too will think it's hysterical, and torment her with it for the rest of their lives, as well. Revenge is SO sweet!!!
from poolagirl :
Your daughter is AMAZING! Putting MORE paper in the toilet to soak it up? Hello!
from some-trouble :
Thank you for your comments on my layout :o) I don't have much time to write right now, but I'll be back soon. Hope all is well with you?
from gimmelove :
Hi! So THIS is where you've gone. :) I used to be momma3 on diaryland. Yep, my momma named me from Melanie on Gone with the Wind.
from neurotic-one :
Dang....I should use this option instead of boogering up your tag board =[
from poolagirl :
Fine her. Every time you hear foul language, 50 cents goes into the bucket. The bucket money goes to a charity. She'll be broke soon enough. AND.....she has to deliver the money.
from poolagirl :
Take care of your kid - take care of yourself.
from poolagirl :
Is Dookie what I think it is?
from flyinby :
update! :) I hope all is well with you, and that your Thanksgiving is great! :)
from starzuphigh :
well he would go and get his prescription from his doctor for some random thing like a stuffy nose or something.... and like.. he'd put the rx in a bowl of water and it would take the ink off. and he'd take it out. let it dry...write down a rx for a pain pill and he'd go to like cvs or whatever and just tell them a fake name a fake address. fake number blah blah blah...half an hour later his rx is filled. it was that simple. meh. pretty sad to think about
from poolagirl :
"Turkey in the Straw" - believe it or not, I can play that on the harmonica - bending the notes and everything!
from giannarazi :
Nope! You're not unloved! I've just been so busy. Plus, I find tagboard a bit too open and out there for me. LOL! (And this is not, huh? Duh on me!) I empathize with you over your family. Mine is the same way. I freak around Shannon's family, as they are somewhat close and not entirely dysfunctional as my family, but trust me - they are dysfunctional in their own way. **HUGS**
from poolagirl :
When I turned 50, I hid all day. Didn't go to work - hung out in the public library - didn't let ANYBODY close. It worked!
from wyndspirit :
Hey, what's this about being unable to copy pictures? They didn't give ME any problem. (I tried just now, just to see if it would let me. I didn't actually copy anything.) Oops, that's right, I use Netscape... Let's try IE. AHA! You added a script to disable the right click. It's an anti-theft thing that does nothing for anybody with two brain cells to rub together. #1, it only works in IE, Netscape ignores it, and #2, hover your mouse over the photo... See the little toolbar? Yep. Click the Save icon, and you've got it! IE practically INVITES you to copy a picture, right click or no right click! I have a thing against disabling right clicking because at work I was forced to use IE, and I usually wanted to right click links to open in a new window. I almost stopped reading one of my original favorites because her anti-right click was so annoying. (I badgered her till she took it off.) That's actually not what I came here to say... I haven't gotten down to catching up on your diary, but I somehow missed (or forgot about) your gbook comment from way back on the 30th. Glad the OT stuff helped... And, you think a peeing cat is bad, my friend's Persian (a blue cream brat, must be the color?) drowned an extremely valuable antique watch in her water dish. :) (Yes, she still has the cat! Amazingly!) But my Himy is the sweetest, most laid-back thing, never had a bad habit in his long life. :)
from poolagirl :
Oh yes, I KNOW you are one of my six loyal readers! And I appreciate that soooo much! Thanks for all your support as I venture out into the world with my new job!
from vm72182 :
I, too, love Maury!! I think he's so nice!! Anyway, I somehow happened to stumble upon your diary and I really liked it, so I thought I should say hello and ask you to stop by mine as well. =) Have fun now that your husband is home! (wink, wink)
from newfoundsoul :
Hello again, I just thought I would say hi. I did check out your halloween picture and I must say that you do have a very gorgeous daughter, and you're not so bad yourself...Dizzy
from newfoundsoul :
I don't mind. And I don't think I know your daughter. I live in Texas. I just found your journal interseting and real, so I thought I would put it as a favorite...Dizzy
from poolagirl :
Hey there, Mizz June. Hang in there girl! Hub will be home before you know it!
from some-trouble :
Hiya, thanks for the message. I've not been on-line much lately (I've kinda been going through a crap health phase too) so I've only just caught up with your entries. I know exactly what you mean about Occupational Therapists - luckily I've not seen mine for about 4 months but I've got to go next week and I'm not looking forward to it :o( I hope the physiotherapy helps some though. I know it hurts like hell, but it's worth it in the end. In your message you mentioned my tagboard, but I don't actually have one on my diary - the sign thingy on the left is so that people can leave a note in my guestbook - sorry I couldn't help you. Take Care & Happy Halloween!
from wyndspirit :
Hey!!! That "awful" cat looks like a cream point Himalayan Persian like my Prince Charming (who is VERY charming, BTW!) only better quality (therefore not as cute). Actually, it looks even more like his one and only lady friend! *** As for the OTR, my sister is an OTA (Occupational Therapy Assistant) and I have to tell you, it's like an obsession with them to get you all "adapted" for any problems you have or might possibly ever encounter. She gives Mom and Dad "adaptive equipment" for gifts (I would not be surprised if a tub rail and toilet seat show up soon), and she even gave ME an "ergonomic" (weird, flat) pen for Christmas last year. (Yes, I WAS insulted! My hands are arthritic, yes, but I do NOT need adaptive equipment at this point. And, no, I did not tell her I was insulted. She means well!) I would think she should note your personal adaptations to possibly teach somebody else who might not be ready for a totally handicapped house. So look on it as an opportunity to teach HER something. :)
from thecrankyone :
Most of my advice has already been said, but his mother definately needs to know. But if he does choose to do something again, your daughter can't blame herself, it is something he is choosing. She needs to keep a distance from him, clearly his problems run much deeper and require the aid of a professional. I would also report it to the authorities, if he is under 18 he can be forced to seek help, maybe then his mom will wake up and smell the toast burning. Otherwise I would advise daughter to have no contact, or as little as humanly possible. She does not need to be manipulated like that, which is exaclty what he is trying to do.
from flyinby :
oh. my. gosh. i'm so sorry you are having to deal with this, and i'm so sorry that "L" is having to deal with this. no one should ever have to deal with this sort of thing. please DO CALL HIS MOM and let her know what happened, and I'd even go so far as to call a suicide help line and ask them what they suggest you do (or daughter do). that boy needs help, and quick. it would be sad if he took his life, your daughter would have major guilt issues and it would just be sad all around. i hope this passes without incident!
from wyndspirit :
I did say ATTEMPT (as opposed to suicide THREAT) but I agree it came WAY to close to succeeding and he meant it to succeed. I thought afterwards, he is obviously not in his right mind, as you said, so talking to HIM probably wouldn't do a thing, but his mom needs a good reaming out from SOMEBODY. Anyway, it's difficult when a child has to deal with something like that and has to grow up fast and hard. Who knows what he might do? I think the Mace is a good idea, and (in MY opinion) a GOOD choice for a (responsible) teenager to carry. They aren't apt to kill anybody even if they start acting stupid and showing off, and any female knows how to aim a nozzle! Much better than a knife or the like. Has she had any basic women's self-defense training? Even general stuff, like using keys as a weapon. When my best friend and her best friend at the time were 18, they took off on a horseback trip from NH to PA. A police officer they encountered gave them 6" long weighted baton-like keychains and explained how to use them to either hit or gouge. Then I found something similar but with a pointed (but not sharp) end that I carried for years. I found it at a county fair booth--I have no idea where you would find one or even if it would be legal anymore, but it's a clever little weapon-that-looks-harmless. Something to consider... At least some self-defense training (if she hasn't had it) for her own self-confidence. (Maybe she and her female friends could all attend a class together?) Just more thoughts...
from giannarazi :
Everything Wyndspirit said is true! I back her up!! If his mom doesn't want to "accept reality" then you can do it for her and call the law on boyfriend. You can have daughter get a restraining order and get the two kids who stopped him to testify, as to his mental state. Daughter didn't need that at all. No one does. Boyfriend does need help. If he is under 18, then you can always call social services and report abusive parents (his mom falls under emotional and physical abuse and neglect is under that rule.) and it can all be anonymous. There are options. **Many HUGS**
from wyndspirit :
Oh, Miss June, it's scary, I know, but you have awesome mother instincts! You are right, you can't always protect daughter, but I'll bet she's pretty amenable to being protected right now. Not much you can do there but suggest she go out only in the company of one or more friends for now and maybe she should continue to refuse his calls. But you... He has a mom, but apparently not that great of one, from what I've gathered. Personally? I would call her and give her an earful, mom-to-mom. (But I'll bet you already have. I SAID you have awesome instincts!) "Do you really LOVE your son??? How would you feel right now if he had DIED??? And he WOULD have DIED, if two KIDS hadn't cared enough to try to stop him and caught him. A suicide attempt is a plea for help just as much as if he had screamed 'HELP ME' in your ear!" Then... Maybe this is more me than you, but *I* would take on Ex and call him out for being a selfish so-and-so. "If you REALLY loved Daughter, how could you want her to see you DIE??? True love is UNSELFISH. True love accepts the pain of loss, and allows the loved one to continue on to what is best for HER, even if it hurts YOU. True love cares more about how the other person feels, no matter what the cost to YOU." Then, once I'd reamed him up one side and down the other, I would start in on his GOOD points and what all he has to live for and how he is a wonderful young man and it's no reflection on him or his good qualities if Daughter is not the "right one" for him. Speaking as a person who's been the depressed route herself, he probably wouldn't believe me, but I would have to say it, to be fair, after I said the other. And THEN I would BEG him to talk to a counselor. Any of the above is way above and beyond the call of duty, I know. You know this kid pretty well. At some point you will have to make the choice where you need to cut loose and turn him over to his own family to worry about, before it disrupts or causes more problems within YOUR family. Of course YOUR family has to be your first priority. I'm sorry if this is way off-base. I'm just shooting off my mouth with my amateur psychology again! I have never been a mom, and have never been in this situation in any aspect. Feel free to disregard any or all of the above.

*bows* I'm glad you liked my "Milk a Cow" idea, and the "Swim in the Ocean" idea. Poop in the Woods was mine, too. And "Write a Children's Book" (not a regular book, but one for the little kids hehe) was mine, too. :) I'm dense, couldn't figure out how to suggest them, tho! lol

Hey, This is Nikki from Who Knew Reviews. I may just be blind, but I looked all over your template and didn't see a link to our site, or a link to other reviews. Is it just me? If so, I need a bit of a tour guide as to where it's at. If I'm not crazy, and it's really not there, I do need you to put it up before we can review your diary. It's just one of those crazy rules we have. Thanks a bunch.

Hehe. I have a nose ring - AND I had my 17 yr old son hold my hand while I got it. ;) It hurts like hell when they poke that hollow needle in there. Then it continues to be a pain for about a month. But after that, its cake. There are also clear, acrylic, nose rings. I have one. You can't even see it. But, you are right. I won't allow my son to get pierced either.
from poolagirl :
You have such a cool house! I can see why you don't ever want to leave!
from poolagirl :
Boyfriend's mom said he provoked the attack? There is something seriously wrong when a boy gets the crap beat out of him and doesn't try to find his own mom. She sounds like a NUTZOID! Good thing I don't live there, because I am a mandated reporter in the state of California. I would be obligated by law to report this. She is neglecting him emotionally BIG TIME. What a JERK! Give me her number! I'll call her and let her have a piece of my mind.
from pashiesplace :
Ok that is me that somehow screwed up your tagboard, LOL. Love the layout!
from poolagirl :
Bella is so CUTE! Albert is cute too. Oh well.........
from giannarazi :
WOW! 2 Dozen ROSES! **Drooling** Being 26 years old, I may not be entirely old school, but man, if I got 2 Dozen Roses I'll dance the hokey pokey! I hope daughter at least thanked boyfriend, by letter while letting him know they were over. Oh well, it's hard to figure out kids these days... and yes I'm on that list too. *Smiles* Glad to see you back online. **HUGS**
from poolagirl :
Sounds like Albert is history. Cha-cha-cha-changes.

from poolagirl :
Whoa! Glad you are back in business! I was just about to send Anne Rice over there to check on you!
from flyinby :
Hey, I hope you are ok. You haven't updated in a few days, makes me wonder if everything is alright with you. Take care!
from flyinby :
I called CPS on Andy's parents about the meds thing and stuff. I appreciate your input tho, knowing I wasn't alone in thinking it odd was important!
from poolagirl :
Whoa! That girl has some cajones! Not a smart move - but amazing cajones!
from thecrankyone :
sounds like somebody is in need of a serious dose of the REAL World.. Don't take this the wrong way, but she sounds like somebody who is totally spoiled rotten with no idea of how life is like for those of us who bust our buts to barely cover the basics..
from poolagirl :
Mizz June, you need to write a book or something - or maybe this saga could be turned into a TV mini-series.
from poolagirl :
Denying you home health care because your underage daughter is home during the day is one of the most insane things I have ever heard! Hang on to this one, Mrs. Cleaver! Victory is yours! Sue their asses all the way from here to tomorrow. Big as howdy!
from wyndspirit :
UNBELIEVABLE!!! Your UNDER-AGE CHILD should have NOTHING to do with determining what kind of care you need. Just my opinion...
from giannarazi :
Home Health People.... are INSANE! Definitely sue their ass if a letter from Doc won't get them moving! You can file emotional and mental duress. Plus, you could probably get that guy for sexual harrassment! I'd throw that in the suit for good measure to shut them down!
from wyndspirit :
If you're checking your hit counter, you don't have a stalker, it's just me reading your archives tonight. Wish I'd have known you in your previous diary life! Love the pictures.
from poolagirl :
Bella has a PUPPY! How sweet! They are too cute together.
from poolagirl :
Think you can move boyfriend off the dime? Please let me know if you speak to his psychologist mother unit.
from mspsyched1 :
Those pictures were incredible. Its so pretty there. Thanks for sharing them. And thanks for your notes. Hope all is well with you and you are feeling good. I've been meaning to ask you...since I'm contemplating moving back to the east, I wondered how the humidity affects you. Its a dry heat out here and it really doesnt make me feel that bad, but I am concerned about the weather back there. And I know that heat triggers symptoms. UGH! Anyway, have a great weekend! :)
from poolagirl :
OK, I'm intrigued. Is your hub a composer? Musician? Wild man?
from vividdreamer :
You're making me long for a four hour drive to...where you live. God, I love that city. *smile* Glad to hear you're feeling better.
from poolagirl :
Brought Roomie home last night at 8:00. She was laughing and joking (still high on pain meds). She actually wanted some soup! Three little puncture sites are all that remain of her procedure. No stitches either. They GLUED her together. Apparently, this is no longer considered a big deal. I am still in shock over this. She wants to burn her tampons tonight out in the hibatchi.
from giannarazi :
I hope when you do start the exercises you can describe them for us or me. I'll do them with you. Thank you for all your notes and support. I'm sorry I haven't emailed you back yet. I'll do that soon. So much to say and I'm excited. **Hugs** Take care and rest well!
from frozentears0 :
Hi *huge hugs* hope ur OK. The kids in England are just as mad espesh the boys. I can't believe how many photos you have up! They're great. Sarah xxx
from ineedawife :
Stopped by to catch up and discovered the pain you are going through. I am so sorry to hear about the latest progression. My heart just aches for you. Thank you for sharing so intimately your thoughts and feelings. And may I say, you are so wise to keep your face out of the sun! And with a bod like that, who will notice?? (heehee) Take care of you.
from pashiesplace :
Oh do I feel like crap after last nights whinefest. I really can't imagine the internal mental struggle that you have to have. Knowing what you should do Vs. knowing what you want/need to do to be happy. You are so awesome. I mean that. Your entries are interlaced with such humor & wit. I'm sure you are not only a social butterfly, but someone that others love being around. I wish there was a sort of middle ground for you, where you could still do some things to make you happy & alive feeling, without jepordizing your physical health more. (((Hugs)))
from poolagirl :
Hey, girl. You are such a hero to everyone in your life. I just read your entry, and I wept for the wonder you bring to the world. It is so obvious how brightly you shine. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Keep writing about how you feel. Please. It's important for you do this. Your Diaryland buddies are behind you all the way.
from flyinby :
Gah! Why do you have "Horse" "Love" and "Money" tatoos on your arm? You ARE crazy! J/K. The first one /Does/ resemble horse, though.
from shiningdawn :
Thanks for the advice about the hamster I hope one is all she gets to lol take care hugs
from poolagirl :
Gaaaaa! I can't seem to get the email link to work here in sweet old Diaryland. So here it is - just for you! poolagirl@aol.com. I'll think about those chicken templates.
from pashiesplace :
Sounds like yesterday was great! Son is handsome. Moving. Ugh. Perfect combination of good and evil in that one word.
from giannarazi :
Here is the eagle entry I had. I'm sorry I didn't say you could find it in my old news section. I'm getting ready to post another entry soon. I didn't get my cable at all. :( http://giannarazi.diaryland.com/030910_79.htm
from poolagirl :
LOVED the music when I opened your diary! It's nice to see a mom so in love with her kids, and her wonderful hub, AND the idea of a wonderful new house. Congratulations, Mrs. Cleaver!
from poolagirl :
Sheesh! I just attempted to send you a note about the goofballs on TV last night, and I sent it to myself. Cripes! I just hate when that happens. To re-cap: two hours was a long time to sit and watch soft-focused "histories" of these foolish ninnies. Chad is a dope.
from pashiesplace :
Happy B-Day to son :) Have you gotten my emails on 9-11? My email has been wanky & not sending everything it should. Huggles
from poolagirl :
Wow! Mrs. Cleaver, you wrote all about the Unknown Poets! How sweet of you! My heart feels very warm right now -- this really means a lot to me. Thanks for rooting for us -- even though we are all the way across the country.
from poolagirl :
So glad you liked the Unknown Poets! We are just bursting with excitement here in beautiful San Diego. I'll make sure you get some digital photos of the event. I talked to the owner last night, and he wants to serve cookies in little brown bags that match the ones on our heads. What a hoot and a holler! My guess is this big event will happen in early October.
from poolagirl :
Wow! I am flattered! Thanks so much, Mrs. Cleaver. You just made my day.
from poolagirl :
Holy, momma! You are a GOOD writer! You are going in my list of FAVES for sure!
from catpewk :
Hey you :) I used up all my banners today to help a friend get his songs heard. Please could your drop by my page if you get a chance, listen and leave a comment (good or bad?) Thanks! Catpewk
from treewillow :
Hi there, I love your diary. I so look forward to reading your updates. I got your diary from Flyinby's diary, and I am so glad I did. Your entry about the stalker freaked me out, and made me go back and check what I have said in my diary. It made me quit a diary ring too. Thank you for opening my eyes, to the possiblities out there :).
from pashiesplace :
I'll email you later. TY for the advice :D
from starzuphigh :
Hi Mrs Mel, or "June Cleaver" thanks for leaving the note... and thankyou for the kind word. thanks for adding me as a favorite too.. you are on my favorites list also because i enjoy reading your diary... it was always referred to by "flyinby" which i also read often. but. i just wanted to say that your kids are gorgeous and the picture of your husband playing piano is just breath taking. it looks like a poster or something. and just keep writing and i will keep reading dear. and keep reading my diary..its not always the greatest to read but i guess its not a complete waste of time :) Love Always and God Bless -Becky
from politics101 :

from neurotic-one :

from flyinby :

from starlight42 :
I found your diary through POY, wow, I read your entry on what happened with your old diary. That's crazy. I'm glad that the situation was taken care of before anything happened!

from flyinby :
grats! you just scared the shit out of me with today's entry!
from twisted-mind :
I have two teenage diaries I read that are very very good. hardlyasaint & iopeace. iopeace has the occasional teen angst but she is an excellent writer. Hardlyasaint is just an amazing writer. So they arent all worthless.
from pashiesplace :
Wow, how horrific! I'm so glas his sorry a$$ is rotting in jail. Thank you for telling us, it REALLY makes me think a lot. (((Hugs)))
from pashiesplace :
Oh my. How could I forget to mention your HOT hubby?? Oversight for certain! LOL!
from pashiesplace :
Wow! What gorgeous kids and Miss June is looking pretty spiffy too!
from pashiesplace :
OMG Mel! I totally believe you. My parents rented a house about 20 years ago that was pretty definetly haunted as well. Thank god it wasn't that bad!
from aurian :
wow, thankyou so much for your note, i was so flattered! :) i'm glad that your early morning wanderings brought you down to my little site, because it meant discovery of you! i'm adding you as a favourite too..and am anxiously awaiting the haunted house story you promised..so don't you be going back on your word now and forget again! ;) xo
from jamsjunction :
Miss Melie, Miss Melie, I cant see your entry..I think you must be working on your templete..
from flyinby :
i'm so glad you gave me that note, i'd never have found you otherwise! :)
from twisted-mind :
Hey there Mel... I'm so glad you are home, safe and sound. Your new room, looks so wonderful. I'm glad you'll be downstairs now and not climbing those steep steps. Real names, Amy BTW, I'm not worried about you telling anyone my name I've fairly open about it. I just changed the husbands name and the kids names. ;o) Take care of yourself and take it easy.
from webster :
Glad to see that you're back home all safe and as sound as you ever were. Do you suppose it was the fever & infection that precipitated your relapse and not your swiffer? Did you do the 'roids? Are you feeling much better yet? Sure hope so.
from pashiesplace :
Well Miss Mel thanks for the note! I love the pics you posted and I'm so sorry that swiffer-ing landed you in the hospital last week!
from preciousgift :
Oh, I missed you...I'm open again ;) Hugs!
from jamsjunction :
Geeeez Melie, take it easy! Listen, Laura is certainly capable to swiffer, I know how excited you were to get it lol, but please, take it easy, hospitals SUCK, much less the food! I am so excited that your back! Rest, & relax!
from giannarazi :
What was it we were to put in our diaryland html template to block people from finding us on Google? Also, if you still have your old diaryland can you send link? I'd be interested in reading your older entries.
from politics101 :
