Just wanted to make an entry here in this journal, before I go off to bed. Watching the news right now. Only bad news I've heard so far, is the my Eagles lost due to Tampa Bay player making a 62 yard field goal, grrrrrrrrrrrrrr. before that field goal the eagles were winning. Oh well, better luck next time.


Well, having 2 journals is pretty cool. Alot more comments to read, lol. But it keeps me busy. I started the private journal for a few reason's. One being because I think that jerk who tried to come between Emma and Dan reads this here journal, to find out what's going on with them. And another reason is, sometimes it is just so much easier telling things about your life to people outside of your family. I love my family dearly and I do know they love me, at least I hope they do. But sometimes I just need a "me" place. I don't get alot of "me" time here at home. Either Rebecca is fussing for something, or one of my grandkids is here, or Jim's at home, and I can't write in my journal's cause their always hovering over me, and I feel like I am suffocating. Having the Private Journal gives me a feeling of peace. Of privacy, something I don't have here at home. Jeez, I can't even go take a pee alone, without Rebecca walking in the bathroom behind me. lol. If I'm in the shower, they come in to go potty, or Jim is getting something from the medicine cabinet. It's like you want to scream, "Get out, leave me alone!" But then you risk having them get upset. So, my private journal is my quiet place, my alone place, a place where I can unwind and just be myself. It's not like I have cut my family off from reading what is going on. I still have this journal here that they can read. I could of just made this one private, but I didn't because I wanted them to have a place where they can go find out about me. I don't feel I am being mean or ignorant by having 2 journals and only allowing them to read one of them. I feel my private journal is like my diary. And I wouldn't expect them to let me read their diary if they didn't want me too. Anyways, I guess that's about it for now. Hope everyone had a lovely weekend, and has an even better week.



  1. Have a good week! {{}}

  2. I understand A LOT about your own peaceful place to go......It's the same at my house too. My brother is on AOL too, and the last thing I want is for him to read something and go tell all of my family!
    All of us gals need a place to call our own.

  9. Congrats on your nomination!

    I have two journals, one public, one private. It caused a lot of trouble to start with, but now I enjoy having it. Just because its a place where I can go to write and process my thoughts. Its hard, because you dont want to offend anyone. But you do need alone time.

  10. Hi Cindy...
    Well, it quit raining here, now it's cold!
    40 or so today.9
    I know what you mean about the me-time.   It's tough sometimes...then when I'm alone I wonder, now what?
    Have a good Monday.XO

  11. Oh i understand!! icant write in my journal unless hubby is gone and the kids are either off to school or in bed. they just all want to know what you are doing.. no me time here either. Love ya..keep writting
    Love Christine

  12. Cindy,
    Glad you feel at ease now with your private journal. I thought about doing one, but if I did that one would be just for me.. truly private. I've thought about it, but I honestly don't have time to write in my public journal so why make two at this point. I have a feeling that when my divorce gets going that I will probably make me a private journal just to keep notes in that no one else can get to. My ex and his GF have internet and I would hate for them to come across this. My family doesn't know I have a journal either. So guess I'm kinda like you it's easier to talk to others that can relate to situations you are going through.
    Love all your graphics... you've come a long way since I first started reading you when Susan sent me your way.
    Take care, Chrissie

  13. You have some cute graphics...  I snagged the trick or treat one...

    I can totally understand about your private journal..  I don't have to worry too much about that... no one in my family reads my  journal.. I don't take it personal, they don't spend time on line...  They are always telling me that I have to get a life off here...LOL
    have a great day

  14. i totally understand wanting to have a private place...i sometimes make one for myself just to vent then end up deleting it later when i feel better
    hope you have a good day!
