I'm not a loner by any means. I have my Friends and my children who I'm very close to; but there are some things that I don't or can't discuss with anyone so I write them down.

I was in a bad marriage for a long time and I think my children knew. Looking back I can truly say that scribbling has helped me to keep my sanity. There are times when I would just sit and write about how I was feeling, what I would like to see change, and how I wish my life was.

I never kept a journal because I did not want anyone to ever read what I wrote (sometimes I still got in trouble from my doodling) so I would write on whatever scrap of paper I had.

When my dad past away, I was having a really bad time and a friend (a Pastor) encouraged me to keep a journal and whenever I am having a bad moment or feel panic I should just start writing. I was surprise at some of the thing that came out in my writing, things that I was struggling with unconsciously. It has helped me to come to terms with some of the issues I was dealing with.

I still doodle/journal but not on a regular basis, I have a lot of positive people in my life.
But if you have something on your mind that you can't share with someone, doodle, writ it down and see what happens.

Reading: Goal

My goal is 24 book for the year. I am sooooooooooo far behind.

Book #4 Patricia Anne Phillips, Maxine Thompson and Milcheel McGriff -Secret Lovers; Three beautiful stories

Book #5 Cheryl Robinson - In love with a younger man
Book# 6 Growing Friendship By Tracy Klehn is one of the book from my book club at church, It's about connecting more deeply with the people in your life who matters most. This one I will finish by the end of the week.

Even if I don't make my goal, I hope I'm real close to it.

TV - Cutting The Cord

An online survey show that over 800,00 household in the US has cut the cord to cable and the high cost of watching television.

What is the addiction to TV drama? why so many people find it hard to cut the cord?

I grew up where TV watching was limited to Saturday and Sunday, and only for a few hours each day. The rest of the week no one even bother to look at tv, we are outside playing, reading, the girls crocheting, or doing embroidery on pillow cases or table covers(where did those days go).

Back then children learned social skills, they learn how to disagree and make up and how to get along with each other.

Today, if you ask ten people if they could cut the cord, nine would say no. Why are we so dependable on the media to entertain us when there are so many other things we can do that is so rewarding.

Plant a garden, flower, herbs or vegetable. Join a book club, or start one of your own, you can travel the world in books while socializing at club meetings.

Me I have cut the cord (by force) but I find that I have more time to read, to spend with my partner and is one less bill to pay each month.
