I Am Going to Have to Wait?
I tried to access Dear Diary a little after 10 p.m. tonight and could not get to the page. I even tried to get on a “friends” diary to read their latest journal entry but there was a database error, so I think DD is down for the moment for some reason. It does seem that DD has its share of server problems and an occasional quirks. It does not hurt me to write an entry and post it later, but sometimes it can be a hassle and a pain. I have even waited for the internet page to come up, but right now DD can not be found so there are problems right now. No big deal. I am not complaining — just disappointed that I can not post right now.

If the length of today’s entry is long, I would like apologize.

When My Heart Speaks, It Speaks
It has come to that time once again that my heart needs to speak out so I can get out my feelings before retiring to bed for the night. I have come across a point in my life that my heart aches once more. Remember when I had written about this one friend of Kelly’s got real snippy with me because I had mentioned something that should not have bothered her but it did? Well, she has been real snippy with me a lot lately and my friend Kelly has told this friend that if she can not be nice to me, she was not going to be able to go over to Kelly’s while I am there anymore. This friend of Kelly’s has been real moody lately and it really stinks, and her attitude really shows how much of a person she really be. (without me using any bad words) I have gotten to the point that I feel I have tried my hardest to be nice to her and like her, but I feel that my efforts are now effortless and pointless — especially pointless. She does not let things go and forgive like most people I know. How sad — real sad piece of work I’d say. I do not think, in reality and friendship, Kelly is going to allow her friend M to get in the middle of our friendship if Kelly is a “true” friend. Kelly, at this point, is a “true” friend and honestly I do not foresee anything in our future that our friendship is going to sour because we continue to talk about what is bothering us. I love Kelly and her husband Jimmy very very much. I love all my friends very very much. Nothing is going to stop that love!

Dear Diary Is Working Now!
Must have been a temporary glitch somewhere…GOOD! Glad to see it up and running again. Maybe it was working and I could not get on because there were a lot of diarists on already at the time, which was a half an hour ago…10:15 p.m.. LOL

VBS (Vacation Bible School)
All this week, July 12 – 16, we had Vacation Bible School at our church. We had a total of fifteen kids in all one day out of the week, but we did have a good turn out. It turned out that while we were having our VBS, so weren’t other churches and our sister church in Milton. Wisconsin. I enjoyed working there during the week. I was assistant to the snacks we created during snack time. We had a total of two groups, the pre-school kids and the elementary age kids. It was plenty for me, lol. This morning, during worship service, instead of having our normal service, the kids and “crew” (I was part of the crew) did a special program to give VBS its finale. It was nice. The kids did a good job!

In all, even though it was a fun week, I am glad that VBS is over for another year. This was my first time helping with VBS at the Seventh-day Adventist Church, but I did help out at VBS at the age of 18 when I was in high school and a Baptist. I had a great time with the kids and they were all good. We had a couple of wild kids, but that only lasted for the time I saw them. They did a fine job at their crafts and snacks, and Bible lessons.

Time to Say Good Night
I am going to say good night here for now. I am getting tired. Had to take a couple of allergy pills tonight!!!!
