Journal? Life? What journal and life?

So much has gone on, significant things, and I've completely stopped journaling which is strange.

What I also realized this morning - and plan on rectifying - is the fact that besides one person, I talk to NO ONE on a regular basis. And failing to be able to contact one person with whom I talk to often, it stiffens my new resolve to get out there and reacquaint myself with friends. I've completely lost all of my male friends (which is stupid), and today I'm going to start working on building those relationships back up. It's ridiculous to isolate myself the way I have, in here and in real life.

Kelsey just graduated, and I'm unusually sad about this. They've already made the post-high-school trip to Florida, and are planning on another quick one in between Kelsey's job and school.

Life has been crazy despite its lack of people. Having Kelsey graduate, I need to rediscover who I am again. I can busy myself up with the help of my spawnlette. Last night on her way home, she stopped by and picked up Krispy Kreme. Yum. I haven't had those doughnuts in about five years. The odd thing is I was JUST telling someone that the other day and boom! She reads my mind.

Kelsey plans on starting college this fall, for those who might be interested. She works at Delia's right now, and is doing wonderful. She got employee of the month twice in a row, and received bonuses as a result. I'm very proud of her for not resting on her proverbial laurels.

The looming decision about social security has risen its head, and the statutes of limitation are almost out for filing. I feel like I have no more life in me, and that things are being stopped for a reason. Also, this is the time of year my parents died, so it's a rough time for me right now.

Of course, there's no point to this entry and I've not included ALL the things or even a good bit of the things going on right now. Maybe I'll start making an effort to at least journal occasionally.

So is she going to continue to live at home when she goes to college or move into the dorms or something? What's she majoring in?

Sounds like her momma raised her well!

For now, she'll be staying here. Unless her dad wants to pay her living expenses elsewhere, this is her option (and he won't). She really waited too late in the game to acheive what she could've. Her major for right now is astro physics/engineering (or what she says she wants). She's smart enough to major in /anything/ and come out on the good side of it :>

Um. Congrats?


I'm just gonna go over here and yell at kids to get off my lawn.

I was SO depressed when she graduated, but played happy with her. It happened on the 27th, so it hasn't been long. I was waiting on her to return from their trip before I posted anything.

I already yell at people to get off my lawn (and my condo is pool-side which is a bitch).

Hey... Are you around on Monday?

*hugs you*
Jun. 6th, 2010 05:52 am (UTC)
Monday? I hope so.

*hugs back*

Yeah - this journalling thing, the setting down of little daily doings and thoughts, sometimes it's second nature and sometimes it's like pulling teeth. Personally, I find it pretty easy, and a nice way to reassure myself that I'm not wasting my days, as well as being a good way to log exactly what I HAVE done. Otherwise, I forget.

Well done and congratulations to Kelsey! She's a fine young person and should do well in life.

Sympathies about the time of year. My father died on the 19th August, my older sister's birthday, and although it was 13 years ago now, it's still a day of sad reflection. Hugs...

It used to be effortless for me, too. But these days, I have nothing /good/ to journal, you know? I'm not going to start a cry me a river journal at this point in the game.

Thank you :) She is a good girl.

Yeah, this is hitting me harder than usual. I bet your sister has a really hard time with it, huh? It's been three years but feels like yesterday. =/

is all *grins* for Kelsey. YAY TO HER!
Jun. 6th, 2010 02:50 pm (UTC)
I am, too. It's just hard watching them grow up like that! You should see her. You probably wouldn't recognize her now. No, no, you would, since she's looking like a prettier mini-me. :> How's the bambino?

It's good to read you again, T. And congratulations to Kelsey!

We'll be back in Birmingham next month. I hope we can get to see you this time.

Thank you and thank you!

Next month is definitely in. My birthday is July 25!

*poke* oi!
Just checking in to make sure things are...thingish? Thingly?
Jun. 23rd, 2010 03:46 pm (UTC)
I just came home from a camping trip and things are...things. Meh. See? I can't even journal anymore.
Jun. 24th, 2010 12:51 am (UTC)
Well, fix it! Make with the fix!



Yeah. I have nothing to say.

Eye see, Open your eyes
Creeping Through The Cellar Door

Latest Month

June 2019


Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
