My SonShine
I just love this picture of him.

Warren finally got his stereo today after changing his mind about which one 500 times. First I took him to Wal-Mart ("Just to look at it Mom!"), where he decided to get a cheaper stereo so he could get a CD he's wanted for a long time. So we get home, then he takes his back pack for a bike ride, which is totally suspicious, and comes back with a second stereo, which was on sale and supposedly plays better, and plays media (yeah right). But after and hour or so, he and Andrew (another friend - he Warren and Alex are like junior version of the Three Stooges) decide they don't like this one.

Being the great mom I am I drive them back to Wal-Mart so they can go exchanging. I drop them off, park the van then go wondering around browsing, the hair care isle. About 30 minutes later I hear a page for TheCrankyOne to come to the courtesy counter. Assuming it was my son not able to find me, I think we are ready to go. I should be so lucky. They havent' finished returning the stereos. Stereo number one, not a problem, (this is the one that set off the store alarm when we tried to leave with it the first time), but the second one, despite thier having everything including the reciept, for some reason required a drivers license. So after messing around with that another 15 minutes, I go off to browse some more while they go stereo shopping again. Finally they get it, with the return money and another loan from Andrew Warren has his stereo. The one he put on layaway back a couple weeks ago to begin with. OY!!!

At least I know the hospital definatly sent the right kid home with me.

Last night's sleep over is going to be the last one for quite awhile. The only thing those two didn't do was sleep. They were up, ALL NIGHT LONG!! Alex definately cannot handle his caffiene, it was like watchign a hamster on speed. When the sun came up this mornign they went bike riding. I finally fell asleep then, but only till about noon. When I went down stairs they were on the couch in thier coats, fianlly sleeping. At least until Andrew came to the door. Then they went out to play again. On the brightside, Alex's parents did take Warren with them when they went to Wasted Acres, and they did buy him Subway for lunch.

Then he came home and tried to talk me into loaning him the last $11 for his stereo, and when I wouldn't agree he wanted to just go and "look at it Mom!!". Yeah right!!

He is so proud of his new stereo, its really kind of cute. Of course having no patience the last couple of weeks have been nothing but him trying to beg, borrow and earn money out of everyone he knows. It should be funny watching him deal with having to use his future lawn mowing earnings to pay off everyone. This should be quite entertaining.

and as a post script to the person, who googled me for I'm a single mom and my teenager hate me, all I can say is take a number, get in line, and join the club.

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.
