Does anybody want to buy a used 20 year old van - very very cheap. Guaranteed to suck cash like a black hole. My wondering alternator belt decided to wander again yesterday. I ended up taking it to OK tire on 13th Ave. First it was going to cost about $15 dollars, then he bumped the belt and it was sucked up and suddenly it was going to cost $60 (which I could ill afford), and then suddenly it ended up costing me $30 (which I couldn't afford either, but which was cheaper than $60. Then we went and spent almost $30 to get Warren's bike fixed so he can ride that to school. Everything was fine the rest of the day, other than my lazy inability to actually do anything.
Today Warren and I get up and go use the van and once again, just to make sure I knew fate was thumbing its nose at me and my hope that something would go right, the belt had once again jumped off. I don't have anymore cash to fix it again, and the estimate to tighten the supports and unbend them so that it won't keep comming off, is about $60, money I won't have till payday. So the money I saye on daycare is being sucked up by my stupid van. It still runs so I can get to work and such, but since it has no alternatore, it heats up faster and the battery runs down so if I run it very long, than I have to wait about half an hour before I can start it again.
On the brightside I have tommorrow off, and I made a dent in the mess I call a kitchen. Tonight I am tackling this room if it kills me. I also had a couple of great walk and talks with my son.
I am ever so amazed at what a young man he is turning into. We had a serious talk already this weekend and I am feeling more confidant that he is set to not repeat the mistakes his dad started making only a year or so older than him. With any luck his dad's bad example will actually have a benifit of keeping him off that path. It was actually very imformative to have such deep discussions with my son, as we also got into religion and my views on it, and the need to question things, not just listen to what people tell you and spit it back like a tape recorder. He is suprising me everyday with how brilliant he is. He almost had my belt back on, but we didn't have the right wrench to get it loose. But I saw what he did get apart and put back together perfectly, I was stunned. Listening to his ideas for a self contained engine, or a swimming pool that can convert to an ice skating rink, it was like talking to another real person. This is the baby I just brought home?
Speaking of which, his hignessness is hungry and so I must run...

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.
