Dear Diary,
Today was a good day, a lot better than yesterday.  Although I had an allergic reaction to something at work today.  That was weird.  My arm is covered in a rash.  
But I got a lot of work done today, and the person I’m working for said it looked really good.  See, I clean houses, and she’s a hoarder like on that T.V. show “Buried Alive.”  I did her counters today all on my own, without my mom helping me with them.  I was really glad that she saw a difference and recognized that I did the work.  
Guess what else diary!  Our pool is almost ready.  We just have to vacuum it and scrub it now, and then I will be able to go swimming.  Swimming, along with writing, is my escape.  
It’s like, when I’m underneath the water, I’m in a whole different world.  All the sounds outside are distant, and you can’t hear anyone talk to you above the water.  I wish I could breathe under water so that I could spend hours there constantly.  I like trying to hold my breath for long periods of time, or just sitting on the bottom and looking around.  It is really interesting to lay on the bottom of the pool and look at the sky through the water.  I know I probably sound weird talking about this, but I really enjoy swimming.  I love the feeling of the water around me, and being weightless.  I don’t know; its like a covering feeling, kind of like a blanket covering every part of your body.  To me, it’s comforting, and safe-feeling.  I absolutely adore it!  
I’m sorry I didn’t write yesterday diary.  It was a really hectic day, and I was really upset that day.  By the end of the day I was exhausted, and I went right to sleep.  
What happened was Mason had an asthma attack.  Mason has extremely bad asthma.  I was so scared.  He barely made it to his bedroom, and it always takes a while for his inhaler to kick in.  I was holding him up when he was sitting on the bed because he kept passing out.  I was listening to his breathing and watching his eyes the whole time.  
Every couple minutes his breathing became really light, almost like he wasn’t breathing at all.  I was so very scared then diary.  His eyes would slowly start closing, and I knew he was trying to fight it, but it still happened.  I would hold him up and shake him until he would open his eyes again, but it always happened a couple minutes later.  Soon though it was over.  Maybe ten minutes later. Mason told me that he didn’t remember much of it, but he could hear me keep saying his name, and telling him to open his eyes.  He said it was distant to him, but he could still hear me.  
Every time this happens I think back to my sister.  When she was in a coma we watched her go through so many changes.  Her breathing would change.  Sometimes it would seem like she wasn’t breathing at all until she would take a long deep breath again.  Believe me, that kept us on the edge of our seat the whole time.
I couldn’t bear losing Mason like that diary.  He’s very special to me, and I love him so much.  He gets me through everything diary, and without him, I don’t know where I would be.  Right after he was ok, he held me, and all I could do was cry because every time his breathing slowed down a lot; I thought I was losing him.  I can’t lose someone else that I love.  
BUT, on a better note; I get to see Mason tomorrow again.  Oh yeah, I love the rain too, and yesterday Mason and I walked in the rain.  I feel like I’m a child in the rain.  I love throwing my arms out and sticking my tongue out to catch the rain.  Of course, Mason eventually pulled me inside to my dismay; I wasn‘t ready to leave the rain, but he didn’t want me to catch a cold.  I guess that’s good that he cares about me so much.  I love him a lot diary, and if I’m going to be pregnant.  I will be glad that he’s the dad because I know he will not leave me to take care of the baby alone.  I know he will be a good dad.  I’m already planning to marry him diary.  We talk about living together as soon as we are eighteen.  He says that as soon as I’m eighteen I’m moving out of here and going with him.  I am excited for that Diary.  I think it will be a lot of fun to live with him, and I also think that it will be near perfect because no one will be able to hurt us anymore.  
Well, Mason’s calling now, so I have to go and talk to him on the phone!  I can’t wait to see him tomorrow.  I will tell you all the details tomorrow.  I might write again tonight to you diary.  Good bye for now!  As always, thank you for listening!

That's a really good way to describe swimming, because I have that same feeling. I've never seen someone have an asthma attack, but it sounds pretty scary. I like this chapter. Keep writing! :)

Thank you :) I'm glad you like it! I know, swimming is my favorite sport, but I am more of a "swimming for fun" person. I have really good energy in the water, and I'd probably do well in the sport, but I love just having fun. Thanks so much though! :)

(the thing about having surgery was true) that happened 2 weeks ago, and I've been able to swim for a week, but no where to swim :( lol. I can not wait for the pool to be ready. Wow. I'm glad that you liked it. And I'm glad that he did too. Thanks for being awesome, and taking the time to comment! :)

Yaaay, happy chapter! Although I think having a baby could bring up a few issues.. D:

And I was totally smiling when you were describing swimming - I LOVE looking up at the sky underwater, except when the sun blinds me. Which is why it's extremely fun to do that at night while looking up at the stars. :)

Update me, please.

It's ok. Booksie is screwing up with posting, so I haven't been able to post any new chapters even though I have them written. It really sucks because I'm afraid of losing my readers. I'm glad you like it! Thanks for reading and commenting! :)

I wish the rain part was longer, I simply love the rain. Makes me happy and sad at the same time:)

This was a great chapter but may i suggest something, so far its still revolving around mason and her parents, why don't you turn the direction to some other angle of her life.

Hope you're not annoyed by the comment(s).

Sat, July 3rd, 2010 10:03am


Haha there is no possible way I could be annoyed by comments. That's a good idea. I actually am going to start talking about other things in her life. Like her dog that she has, and maybe an entry on her future plans. :) We will see. Thanks again! and Thanks for the criticism! :) It definitely helps! :)
