Yes I'll Have Some Cheese

I've kept a journal going for years,
something that I've done since I got my first diary
on my 10th birthday...
(it was pocket size, hard cover in red with a lock...
maybe 4 lines for each day of the year...)

Now I have a bottom dresser drawer full of them...I use one-subject wide rule spiral notebooks, and it takes me a couple of months to fill one up. I usually get a notebook with something or someone on the cover...right now I'm writing in a notebook that features the cast from "High School Musical"...I didn't have one here at the house so Taryn gave me one of hers...and let me tell ya, that Zac kid is cute!

Once in awhile I get into the dresser drawer and pull an old notebook, just to take a look...and I've discovered something about myself...

I'm a journal whiner.

In my day to day life, I don't usually whine...I complain sometimes but I'm generally not a whiner...but get a pen in my hand and I'm as whiny as a 4 year old who hasn't had a nap.

I journal whine about all sorts of things...I started to make a list, but it was tooo looonnnggg (whiny writing in italics, foot stomping and pouting to soon commense)

but a few whiny highlights I can share...
theme parks, mosquitoes, television,
hair cuts, driving and going up steps...
yes its that pathetic...

So if I don't want my children and grandchildren to someday read how whiny their mother/grandmother really was, I guess I need to stop the whining from now on. And the next time I write in my "HSM" notebook, maybe I should leave a special note about the day I confessed my journal whining on the internet. Maybe ask the future generations to read my journals with a grain of salt and a compassionate eye...

or I could keep whining and just bury them in the back yard.
