First Entry

Well here I am….finally! I’ve been wanting to start journaling again for over a year but just never got started. I had accounts at My Dear Diary and then at Open Diary but they went kaput and I just never found a place to begin again. Oh I did look around but never found a place I liked….most were filled with angst ridden teens and I am definitely not that….lol.  Found this place last night and lurked around reading others for a bit and it seems like I might fit in here! 🙂

For a little background:  I’m a 54 yr old woman in small town Indiana. I am single for now and live with my 17 yr old granddaughter (SM) and 2 yr old grandson (RJ).  I have custody of them due to the fact that my only child, a daughter (DM) is an addict and can’t care for them herself.  I have 2 other grandsons (GA1) and (GA2) that live with their fathers mother.  We have a dachshund/beagle mix (O), a blue burmese cat (S),  a torti long hair (M) and a tabby kitten (P).  Not sure how long P will be with us….he is a stray we took in and I’m actively looking for a home for him. The test will be if I can find one before I get too attached to let him go!! lol  I work in direct sales as an Avon rep to keep us with the lights on and food in our bellies.  I am a baby Christian after being a non-believer for most of my life.  I don’t attend church as of yet but am in the process of deciding which church best fits me.  My parents…..sister and brother have all passed away but I am close to my aunts and uncles as well as 3 nieces, 2 nephews and some great nieces and nephews too.  I like to cook, craft, take walks, listen to music…my likes are varied….anything from southern gospel to some rap.  I used to be an avid reader but not much time to do so since little RJ came to live with me.  TV is on most of the time but just for background noise…..I only have a few programs I follow on a regular basis.  America’s Got Talent, Dancing with the Stars,  The Last Man on Earth, Days of our Lives, Pretty Little Liars, Duck Dynasty, and The Walking Dead. As of right now only 3 of them are on the air with new episodes.  Let’s see….what else should I mention???? I guess that’s it for now. Hope everyone is having a blessed day! I’ll write again this evening.
