Another weekend over and nothing accomplished, nothing productive anyway. I did pick up a free desk thru Freecycle (Look for your area - its great - FM is under MN for some strange reason though), and it is still in the van as I need toso some major cleaning before I put it in my room. I also need to get this desk moved to Warren's space for his computer. Yes he has his own computer now. Though its hardly new. I've had it for a few years, I got it free at my other job, but we never had a monitor or anything for it, and I never tried to do anything with it. But Warren found a monitor someobdy else was tossing out (he has his father's eye for trash) along with a stereo (like we really need another one of THOSE). He hooked it up and voila it works. So we are now a t hree computer house - sort of . Warren has the Mac (yup, the freebie was a Mac), I have the XP and as a spare we have my Win 98 laptop which has more than a couple of issues, but still works reasonably well for a 5 year old laptop. I just hope this job situation works out. I have some great ideas, and really want to get DSL.

- Natalie:: Portman - If you know me you saw that one comming. Though I also knew a really nasty girl named Natalie in jr and sr. Hi, but I'm not about to post her last name her.
Things sound promising, the lady was very happy with me, but I can't say more lest I jinx myself, however superstitios that may sound.
My son also fixed his front brake on his bike with the break of another bike. Add in that the rear brake was replaced at the brake shop and that he has "rotated the wheels/tires" I think his new bike has now become more of a Franken-Cyle. But it works great and he loves it, so I guess that is what is important. He is always working with stuff like that. Somehow I have a son who is turning into a cross between Tim Taylor and MacGyver.. Not much patience for reading and writing (two of my favorite pastimes), but a great vocabulary, very outgoing, and loves things he can do with his hands, particualry mechanical and electronic things. I doubt he will have any trouble finding employment when he is older. He already has a job, sort of, doing lawns for a few of the neighbors. I am hoping this winter he will make at least as much shoveling snow. He is a hard working kid when he wants to be, key phrase in that is "wants to be".
I also got some exercise today, I actually got off my butt and did some walking. I had one of the strange headaches that leave you pissy and cranky and not feeling like anything. But listening to tunes and walkinga mile or so really helped to clear my head. Of course the chocolate drumstick, at the Cenex station kinda negated the calorie burning effects, but it too had its threaputic value.
I also had a retro blast from the past, when one of Warren's friends brought over a gameboy Space Invaders cartridge. I haven't played that game in years, but I still rock at it. All those quarters at the arcade payed off, after all. I decimated my son. Now if we could only get Pac-Man I could wipe the floor with him. Now I really do feel old.
Four more days and I can finally get the stitches out of my arm. I never realized how much I would miss being able to swim, till I suddenly couldn't go. Its gonna be another hella week, so lets hope for once I get enouch sleep to make it thru with out killing any innocent bystanders..

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.
I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.
I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
