I hope you have recovered, and are feeling better by now! :) (I know what it's like to be de-railed by a chronic physical condition) Where have you been? I wanted to tell you how much I have loved.... Scratch that... *LOVED* reading your journal, you are hilarious! I've read this whole thing in like around 4-5 hours! :D Theres ups, and downs, tears, laughter, everything! I love your writing style, it's fabulous! :D Please come back! I hope your grandmother is doing well, I miss both of mine, didn't truly know what I had til they were gone, and they (actually all three of my remaining grandparents) died within 8 months of each other... So it's definitely good to not take them for granted...
I am also liking your poetry, I usually don't like poetry (@ least when I was in school) but I like what you have posted! I guess it's b/c I can't always understand it, don't know why, but I don't, yours are easier though... I have, however always loved to read books...... when I was a child, because of insomnia, and I still do this (it's 2am now), just with my iPad, I would read at least a book a night, most of the time, it would be two! So, good luck with starting that novel! My dad has written about four, maybe five (published, not sure how many r 'waiting in the wings' so to speak) the last one was/is "based on my (his daughter- i.e ME) summer adventures at the beach" (Boats, Bars, & Beaches!) Lmao So, if ur looking to torture your daughter... Lol j/k I hope everything is going well for you right now! :D
