I'll try to get this brief note done tonight and hopefully it'll go out tomorrow. The site wasn't down but they were a little behind - I had communication with one of the admins - there's definitely a lag somewhere. The date on your page is 12/21/15 - it was added today (2/7/16) That is ok if it's regular - I've been worried since I haven't seen anything.
I'm glad you're seeing the psychiatrist - I agree that you need to face and accept all of your past actions before you can move forward. I have some strong opinions about some of the causes - it will be interesting to see if you come to some of the same conclusions. Those won't be something we'll discuss here, for sure!!
Cella announced on Facebook today that she's getting married - not sure what the date for that is - the reception will be July 30th. His name is Tom - I know nothing else about him :)
I love you - gotta go so this will be done - and so I can get to bed. I've got a sinus infection and bronchitis - been sick a couple of weeks now - I'm better than I was but I'm still sleeping sitting up
Keep posting - I check just about every day :)

Well sweetie - I'm not sure if they're behind again, or if they just forgot to update with the message that my message had been sent - I know that happens sometimes. It doesn't indicate that my last one went out so maybe you'll get more than one. I'm sorta feeling better now but not entirely well. I need a few things from the store but they will have to wait - I also need gas and can't face having to get out in the cold - predicted high today was 44 - little nippy for me until I'm all better
That's all for now - take care :)

It's Valentine's Day - couldn't let the day pass without telling you that I love you - even when I hate you - but you already know that :)
I see notices on my last two notes that they were sent 2 days ago, so you should have them by the time you get this - that's good!!
I'm almost well now - finally - and will be going to Alabama in a couple of weeks to visit - plan on staying a week or so.
Hopefully I'll see a message from you then :)

Holiday today - not sure this will be sent, though it gives today's date :)
Played world of warcraft most of the day today and yesterday - I have 9 characters, all at max level so I'm just trying to get them geared up before the next expansion at the end of summer when they will give us new areas to explore. Hard to describe since I don't think you've ever seen or heard of the game :)
Nothing new here - we are all just trying to get over being sick.
G'night now - sweet dreams

Just a note in case they mail tomorrow :) so you know I'm thinking of you. Not really in the mood to write - not sick or anything, just kind of off. It's going to be hot weather soon and I hate it - much rather it was cold.
Took the baby to the park Friday - her first time to play on the equipment - she loved it. We thought she'd have a fit when it was time to leave but she was pretty good. Amber is pregnant again - we pray that there won't be a miscarriage - she's only about 6 weeks. Her oldest daughter is also expecting - she's about 5 weeks - so it ought to be interesting :)
Time to go - I'm sleepy - no reason - lol - I don't do anything.
G'night - love you
Me :)

Perfect weather today - breeze blowing, intermittent cloud cover - supposed to be in the high 70s later on. I could deal with this kind of weather - it's when it's 90 or more with high humidity that it kills me.
Feeling nostalgic the last few days, weeks, months - lol - thinking about how different things could be if we'd all made different choices. So many people would still be alive - and possibly happy - if they'd done things just a little differently :)
Ok, ok - that's depressing - lol. Think I'll go watch the trees blow in the breeze - which seems to be getting stronger!!
Love you -

Daylight savings time - ugh. Actually, it doesn't bother me - I just wish they'd make it one way or the other and not switch. It just doesn't make sense! Plus I'm sleepy and crabby :)
Another week starts tomorrow - yawn!! They're all pretty much the same since I quit working - I need a job
Good night and sweet dreams - I love you

Funny - inside I feel as I did when we first met - it's only when I try to do certain things or when I see myself in a mirror that I realize how much time has passed.
Just a passing thought for today :)

Sometimes I'm not sure I decided correctly when I came here. Oh I know - it's inevitable - there will come a time when I can't care for myself - but I'm not there yet and it's different here.
I don't know how to describe it - it's not that they go to church and I choose not to - I don't go to their church because of the head covering - eventually that would be an issue. I should find another church but I'm not sure I could go in by myself - I have problems with that sometimes. Oh well - it's not important anyway - today is just one of those days
:)

Just a note so you know I'm thinking of you - sorry I haven't posted in a couple of weeks but I just haven't wanted to...don't think that means I don't care because I do - it's just that some days (or longer) I want to retreat from the world.
I still think of you every day - if that helps you to feel better :)
Good night love - sweet dreams - don't let the bedbugs bite.
Oh - latest post - your date was 4/4 - and they posted it 5 days ago (today is the 21st) the day Prince died.

Early morning melancholy - just missing you - the feel of your arms around me - hearing your even breaths as you sleep. We have thrown so much away - or lost it by taking it for granted - and yet we still have so much.
I believe in God's forgiveness - not sure if I always have (probably not, or I would have lived a better life) but I do now. I believe that He sent His son and that if we have faith that we are saved. I pray that you believe as well, because that is our chance to be together for eternity. I pray for you - and for me.
I love you :)

Hello love
Just wondering if you're OK - I haven't heard from you and it's your turn :) Are you sick?

tigana Posted 1 year, 3 months ago. ✓ Mailed 1 year, 3 months ago   Favorite
Hi my love
Just wanted to send this note in the hope that it gets sent tomorrow. I got your letter Friday - made me cry in relief - I always imagine the worst :( anyway - I didn't have anything written - and planned to write over the weekend but of course I got sick that night! It's just a cold but it sure laid me out - tonight is the first I've been out of bed. I know the fever broke today - you know how you get that weak, sweaty feeling? I hope to be much improved in the next few days and will get your letter written then. I love you. :)

I haven't written yet - this has really hung on I felt some better today and went to church with a friend - she's been patiently waiting - and made it through the day. Went to Amber's this evening and now I'm going to bed. They're taking me to the beach tomorrow - a nice gesture and I know they're doing it for me - but they don't get that I like the ocean and the rocky cliffs, but I'm not overjoyed about the sand. I'll enjoy it though - they're doing something special for me. :)
Anyway I should get a letter done this week:)
I love you - more and more :)

Good morning my love. It's Thanksgiving day - 5 AM. I've been up since 2 - why I don't know -I'll hate it later today. Of course I'm missing you - in a way I'm not because I know you're right here with me :) I started my next letter - guess it will be a race to see if you get this or the letter first..I love you sweetheart - wish you were here beside me - wouldn't that be wonderful?

Just to say I didn't forget your birthday - but your card will (obviously) be late. Been kinda sick all week - it's finally settled down to be a cold so now I'm fully miserable - lol. I should be able to go to town in a couple of days so you'll get it probably in January, knowing how the normal mail plus the holiday delays make for lateness. I did think of you - sent loving thoughts and huge hugs. I love you - even if you are an old man. :)

My love - my only love
It's nearly 2 am - haven't been to bed yet. All the windows open because the weather is so perfect. I've been sleeping with them open the last several nights - these are the times I'm glad I'm here where it's not so scary (yet) that you can't leave the windows open
I love to come here and find notes from you - I wonder why I don't feel pressured about these, but the letters at the house do make me feel that way. I guess one of the psychoses that age has brought to me - combined with the fact I've always hated to write letters :). Oh well - I guess this way is working for us right now
Once I see a new post it's kind of like a treasure hunt to get to read it all. They kind of string them one after the other so I have to page through the past couple of years worth to get to the new one. I'm not sure how they add the posts - it can be very confusing!!
Have I told you that you write wonderful love letters - ?? I can write - short pieces describing an event that people find entertaining - I like to play with words and paint mind pictures - make people see what I see/think/feel - but I'm not good at love letters at all - I guess because I have difficulty exposing my emotions on a first person basis. Hopefully that makes sense - though probably not - lol
Ok - going to try to sleep now. I love you, my heart - I can feel your arms holding me as I start to drift off - ever safe - that was always how you made me feel - safe :)
Your Jeannie :)
