Happy New Year

First, I want to congratulate my baby sister, who moved into her first new home with her husband and children today!  It was fantastic to get some good news, especially in our family!   2020 has been a challenging year for everybody, so it’s tough for me to be excited about the new year.  I miss David more and more each day.  The news is grim, so I try to avoid it.  Most days, I escape into a YouTube video or one of my little games on my phone.   On Christmas Eve, I fell on the ice at my sister's house, and I broke my wrist and a few ribs.  The hospital put a temporary cast on it, and yesterday I got to see the orthopedic doctor.  He said I was fortunate because I broke my radius, but it was a clean break, and it was flush, so it’s growing back together correctly.  I was just happy that I don’t have to have surgery!   Over the past week, I’ve made peace with many people and given a lot of forgiveness, but I still haven’t talked to my father.  I just don’t know if that relationship

Jack Daniels

I don't know where to start.  I know I get judged everytime I write something by people who have no right to judge.  However, I am not here for them!  I am here for myself and those struggling to navigate life.  It's been 78 days since Dave passed away.  Life has been one hot mess in 2020, but hold on it gets better with each passing day!   I can add another disappointment to my journal.  His name is David Jason Denton.  We went to Elementary school together and he was in a hard spot so I did what I always do.  I helped him out.  However this time I seen all the signs early on so to the left he went!  I think at this point in my life, I have realized so many things about relationships.  I don’t think I’ll ever be able to have a successful one, with a person that lies.   My birthday was magical because I made new friends and got to spend time with my son.  It’s Christmas Eve and I can’t sleep.  Me and Jack Daniels have become good friends and I blocked anyone negative out of my

Update 12/09/2020

Well, HELLO :) Here is an update on the financial situation.   So much has happened since I last wrote.  Currently, I am living back with my youngest daughter in Crossville.   We raised $1,400 on GoFundMe for David’s funeral.  From those funds, $900 was from David’s former employer, and the rest was from my friends and family.  David had filed disability a year before his death, so his attorney said our daughter might get the back pay owed to him if it is approved.  Then we found out the back payment will have to be split between all his children, and it would be January or February of 2021 before we will even know.  It’s not right, but it’s the law in Tennessee.  I had already taken down the GoFundMe because I thought I would be able to pay it off.  So I told the funeral home I would pay $150 a month for now.   If you would like to help, I have Venmo, Cash App, and PayPal, which charge much less compared to GoFundMe.  GoFundMe takes a fee from every donation.  Also, you can make a pay
