My second entry of the year already. Wow. Today was one of those sit around he whole day, never get out of our pajamas, eat too much junk food, watch too much TV, wonder where the day went kind of days. I loved it. I need a few days like this, though to be honest I think I'd need to leave the house a little bit or I would have major cabin fever in a hurry. An agoraphobe, I am definately not, twelve hours in the house and I am seriously jonesing to go anywhere that isn't here. Tommorrow I will get my wish, too bad that place is work. No wonder I am TheCrankyOne.

Right now I am feeling physically exhausted, I'm not sure from what I doubt it takes that much energy to sit in front of a computer and watch television for 12 hours straight. That might explain why my brain refuses to shut off, even though my body is screaming for somebody to hit the off switch.

Of course the copious amount of soda I have gone through today may have something to do with that. I don't know how I was able to completely give it up for two years (a few weeks before I met Mike until Warren was about a year and a half). Now I just can't imagine not having it. I remember what I bitch I was when I first cut it out, and even after I got past that, I still got major cravings for it. I held off, but once I started working again, I just couldn't do it. I needed the buzz to function. Now the thought of starting the day with out it, well I would be a most unpleasant person, cranky wouldn't even begin to describe it. Beside my philosphy is everything in moderation, but live a little. To many people take things too far, they may live longer but if you can't enjoy it, what's the point? I only get one trip, I say enjoy the ride.

Now if I can just find an off ramp to take a short nap, since I know tommorrow will be nuts. January is always our busiest month, with people trying to get healthy for the new year. Yesterday the phones were off the hook. I hate it, but at least it keeps me busy, I'm either taking orders, explaining things really slow, or playing telephone tag with Post Offices and UPS outlets thousands of miles away. Oh what fun it is to work, in Vitamin Hell.

I am not sure how long this layout will last. I have a better idea for a new layout, and my mind is ready to work on it, but my body says "Go to bed you stupid fool" and since it has to do all the hard work like typing it wins. I don't need to be making myself nuts trying to find some stupid error that is throwing everything off. But in the meantime at least this is easy to read, and in case anyone is wondering, the photo is a picture of Hayden Christensen that one of my friends with a Hyperspace (paid area of me. I just altered it a bit with PhotoDeluxe (Think Photoshop lite). The photo is from the set of Episode III, with Hayden in a more Vadery costume. But I doubt David Prowse ever looks this good in Vader's outfit. Excuse me I need to open a window, its getting kinda hot in here..

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.
