my Grandma Volk. Died before I was born, had 13 kids, including my mom
Grandma Volk my mom's mom. I never met her, but can definately see the family resemblence. Old German Russian, think Lawerence Welk accent.

Grandpa Volk. I never met him either
My maternal Grandfather. Also German Russian.

Picture of my mom taken late 40's early 50's
My mom in her young, carefree, child free days. Who knew she looked so good back PM (pre-me). LOL.

Warren age 4, being Warren
Warren age 4, at HeadStart, playing with blocks and acting Warren. See the red hair..and the smirky expression..already there..

Warren age 6 mos
Warren taking a bath at Grandma and Grandpa's (my folks) house. He'd freak if he knew this was posted, but its just so gosh darn cute

Me the RB and baby Warren
Family picture taken at My folk's house Warren's First Christmas. Notice the total lack of hair, even though he was 6 months old at the time. Hard to believe that was 10 years ago.

And that ends today's psychodelic trip down memory lane.

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.
