  2. The one thing I've learned is that losing weight is NOT easy, but given the dedication and time it IS possible. I will be tracking my weight loss and expressing my feelings about it here in hopes to motivate myself properly. Statistical Information My Beginning Weight | 240 My Goal Weight | 185 Pounds Left To Lose | 055 Total Loss or Gain | 05 (loss) --- Date of Journal Entry Day 01 | 01 APR 2020 Activity Today Walking Walked a good 30,000 steps, I will be walking more as I feel this will help out; it is hard to chose places to walk as there is a virus that is floating around the world, I believe they call it CoviD-19 and it is shutting most normal places one can walk, down for the time being. But I do have my wife and she walks with me.

  8. There is nothing more beautiful to hear! That is to be expected from almost every angle as well; this is not an easy ride; but one that was worth taking, especially in these times we live in. This is beautiful for one big reason, now you and your mother can take those steps together! Here is to a great 2020 - and Kelly, we are glad your around! We've been worried about you these last few months!
  9. I am reminded of an old adage; "You know how high you are on someone's priority list, by the amount of time they spend bugging you." I am sure there is much more to this statement that requires exploring which would bring context to your thoughts and explain a bit more in depth the true, raw emotion of your feeling here. Pain does run deep when a loved one says something that they shouldn't; Again I am reminded whenever I am angry to be mindful of my thoughts, as they turn to words, and words themselves can burn when not carefully chosen (as words are a physical manifestation of a nonphysical product); some burns never heal, thus why, there should be a mindful thought, not for them, but one's self when angered in any way. Have you ever expressed these thoughts to your husband, he is supposed to be your rock. A good beating comes to mind with the backup of a well rounded partner; I had a friend who, when misbehaving in his youth, whom had a mother who would tell him to go to his room; after several minutes, she would trail him with a spatula scraping the hall the entire way to his room; at one point, just the sound would control his mood. He laughs about it now, but I am sure he was scared as a youth, but he definitely knew when he did wrong. The reason I mention this is because, it is the duty and obligation of the parent(s) to teach the child, never the other way around. I know, the CPS deal, truth be told, if that is what it took; then it should happen, and to be honest, the mate (your husband) should be backing you 100%. I personally have always said when that day comes where I chose to have a child; My wife comes first, then my child, no exceptions - through me, my child will learn to treat his mate, period. This child will know, my wife will ALWAYS come first - NO EXCEPTIONS. While some think this cruel, it took my wife, myself, and our love, to create that child thus my child IS and will always be my property and come second. I will never be their friend. Basically the angrier she got, the earlier I would wake her to do heavy manual labor. The feeling I get here is that she controls you, not the other way around, this is bad for the respect, and control the parent should command, you should command. My initial response to this would be that this is where speaking up and being vocal comes in, without any kind of honesty or communication there is absolutely no relationship. I feel there needs more explaining here as it needs context. I say this not to victim blame, but to come from a positive point, meaning that I would want to believe your husband does indeed love you, without context or a back story on your husband we are left with he just comes home and rapes you or abuses you every night; which then comes in the question; Why stay for the years you have when you have the product of this, a child whom hates you? If indeed this is the case. It seems there is a tear here, one side of you is stating they love you and you know this to be a lie (or that is the feeling being conveyed here), then there is your feeling of 'love for them' I would ask then, what makes you love them, because if I were to read upon your words previously, those would suggest otherwise; I would then ask you this; Can you describe 20 things they do, in a list, that makes you want to love them? If so, do you truly love them? If yes then, why can you not describe the ways they make you love them; this is important because you could be convincing yourself of a lie; just because you don't want to deal with the situation; that not wanting to deal with it; as expressed in 'not wanting to wake your daughter up.' can cause high anxiety, and that anxiety can foster seeds of resentment and hate as shown in the statement i have highlighted 'being told. Hey I love you, but I know the truth.' In this statement I see disconnect from reality to what is being thought by you; previous actions suggest a contradiction to your thoughts. Can you see the confusion as broken down; this is why it is so vital people communicate and why I created this community. It is not easy to express ones feeling, but sometimes this needs be done. Links should be posted, more importantly, pictures of said garden should be put up! We even have a room called 'The Green Thumb' you could give us gardeners whom tend to like the color brown more then green a hint or helping hand or two! This is why we need to see said sacred garden! and WHY we need video and pictures of it! Ah, never stupid! But cute when talking about the garden, and just talking about said garden gives this whole conversation and journal entry a beautiful end; ever thought of a name for said garden? All good gardens need a name.

  11. Where to begin!? Hhhmmm. Well, March 25,2020 is one of the best days of my life. Trying to get back to a normal life without the heavy uncertain weight on my shoulders. As of this day mom IS CANCER FREE! It's been a living hell of uncertain results! The waves of different emotions from North, South, East & West! Everything in between! Now that we have this amazing news trying to get back to a normal life step by step. I'm positive it will take quite awhile to get there. So, happy days ahead.

    Ocotillo Desert

    A desert is a barren area of landscape where little precipitation occurs and, consequently, living conditions are hostile for plant and animal life. The lack of vegetation exposes the unprotected surface of the ground to the processes of denudation. About one-third of the land surface of the world is arid or semi-arid. This includes much of the polar regions where little precipitation occurs and which are sometimes called polar deserts or "cold deserts". Deserts can be classified by the amount of precipitation that falls, by the temperature that prevails, by the causes of desertification or by their geographical location.

    Old Wagon

    The first stagecoach route that transported mail to the far west. The route covered 600 miles from St. Louis, Missouri to San Francisco, California. Prior to this, the mail was brought by ship through the Gulf of Mexico, across Panama by truck and again by ship up to California. The route was in operation from 1857-1861. Founded by John W. Butterfield and his associate William G. Fargo (better known as Wells Fargo), among others. Operations began when they won the coveted post office contract in 1857. They successfully delivered mail until the onset of the American Civil War in 1861. unfortunately, Due to debts owed by Butterfield to Fargo, he lost his stake in the company. However, Wells Fargo continued and grew his company to the namesake of banks that it is today.

Cities and Towns Visited: Ramona El Cajon Lakeside Buckman Springs Campo Ocotillo Wells Ramona Lake Cahuilla Parks Traveled: Butterfield Ranch Monument Visited: Buckman Springs Box Canyon Inscriptions Found: Buckman Springs: "Not far from here, Amos Buckman (1820 – 1898) discovered what is known today as Buckman Springs. After spending time in the Napa Valley following his arrival from Massachusetts, he moved his family to San Diego in 1871. The Buckmans eventually settled near here after Amos heard of a natural spring in the area. He located the spring and built a house and barn nearby On September 27, 1881, Amos Buckman was awarded a homestead of 160 acres. Analysis of the water showed it was naturally carbonated with lithia, potassium, sodium, calcium sulfates and carbonates, magnesium and iron. News of the find soon spread and people came. A campground and cabins were built; later a small hotel and country store were added to accommodate the visitors. Amos Buckman found both a process and investor to bottle the fizzy health drink he called “Buckman Springs Lithia Water”, which his customers bought by the case." Box Canyon, Historical Landmark, 472 "The old way variously known as Sonora, Colorado River or Southern Emigrant Trail and later as Butterfield Overland Mail Route traversed Box Canyon just east of here. January 19, 1847, the Mormon Battalion, under command of Lt-Col. Philip St G Cooke, using hand tools hewed a passage through the rocky walls of the narrow gorge for their wagons and opened the first road into Southern California."

  21. The last few weeks I've found myself wondering why I'm even here! My daughter and husband don't need me. So I've been told. Sure maybe it was out of anger but, non the less it hit straight to my soul. Every day I have had to wake up get my daughter up just to endure her yelling and disobeying me, Honestly, I'd rather just let her sleep in. At least that way I'd get less of the hate. I dread when 2-4 comes around in the afternoon cause that's when my husband comes home. The innuendos begin. Grabbing sneak peaks and touches whether I want it or not. Being told, Hey I love you, but I know the truth. I love my husband and I love my daughter. They ARE my world! But, lately it's so hard to want to wake up and do anything. I have, been working in my garden, and when I try to get them to help, well if you've watched my video you can see how well my husband takes it. I feel so safe and alive when I'm in the garden. Though, that ends once I have to come back in. I hate it! I wish I could just live in my garden! I'm stupid I know. Well anyhow, don't even know where this journal was suppose to go, but hey who am I? Loves Y'all and Big Hugs
