I started it 8/5/2004 which surprises me, since when I began I wasn't sure how long I would keep writing here.

I actually started it after I moved to TN, which was another surprise when I looked back to the first entries.

Some changes from then...I don't watch The Amazing Race anymore, or much of any TV really. Currently my favorite shows include Mythbusters, Deadliest Catch and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Mostly, if the TV is on at all, it's on a sports channel as background noise.

If I'm home by myself (like now) it's not on at all. I have background noise all the time now due to my tinnitus.

Since I started this journal:

My brother died. My brother died a few months before I started this journal.
My daughter has married and divorced twice. She has four children, including the newest, her twin boys with her current SO. She's a stay at home mom. And a HUGE geek girl.
My son got married and has two children. Due to a disability, he is a stay at home dad. And a very good one. He also got his GED and has discovered the joy of reading.
We stopped eating at Cracker Barrel.
We stopped shopping at Wal-Mart The Evil Empire.
We bought a house.
Hubby's brother got married and now has a 4 year old daughter.
Hubby and I both work at the same soul-sucking good neighbor company. I can't wait to get out.
My other brother & his wife had a surprise baby.
My brother's wife got cancer and died.
Hubby's grandfather died.
I had a fucking endoscopy.
I have written countless words and stories in the HP world.
The MARVEL Cinematic Universe came into existence. (OMG, the eye candy!)

The best part of my ten-year journey with this journal?
All the friends I have made through it. I have only met one of you IRL, but I consider every one of you a friend. LJ is the second place I check when I turn on my computer each day (the first is email-I don't have a cell phone OMG, I'm such a dinosaur!), and I really enjoy reading all the updates from you guys.

I know I don't update as much as I should. There's only so many times one can write about one's struggle with depression and anxiety until it becomes utterly boring. I've bored myself, TBH.

Thank you all for being there. You are so very appreciated and loved.
