My son, my self

This has been another long weekend. Spent Friday evening fighting with Warren, finally made up and worked things out with him (I swear if the kid was a girl he would be me reincarnated), but truth be told in some ways the kid irritates me so much because he is soo much like me sometimes it is scary, especially the way he acts when I have to act like a mom. Its like flashback to the 80's and watching a teenage girl go sith on her mother who dares act like a mom. Man how did my mom keep from killing me. Looking back, clearly I was a brat from hell at times. If I had been my mother I would have smacked me senseless and sent me to my room till I was 21.

Warren is showing more and more signs of man-ness everyday. Now he decided he wants the bigger stereo because it has more power (instert Tim Allen grunts here). And today when I asked him about the instructions for something (my new pedometer- courtesy of McDonald's new Happy Meals for grownups), he responded with a comment that nobody reads instructions. My baby is growing up. He's also becomming quite the financer. He's borrowed money from friends, and tried to work out numerous deals with me to make extra money so he can get his stereo. Not even 11 yet and already in debt. At least I know the hospital gave me the right kid.

Tonight he has Alex over again. First they were going over to Alex's (insert cheers), but then Alex's parents decided to go out, so they are sleeping here. Dont' get me wrong, Alex is a great kid and he and Warren play great together, but I am really starting to feel like a free babysitter sometimes. I mean Alex has spent 4 weekends over here, and Warren has slept over there once. These kids eat like they haven't been fed in a week. I ordered pizza tonight since itwas late and we kinda forgot about dinner. I had three small pieces they devoured the rest, including bread sticks. It was like watching pirahana swarm on an unlucky animal that fell in the water. I didn't know it was possible to down that much food that fast.

On the other hand, I like knowing whats going on with Warren and who his friends are and what they are up to. Face it, I am the snoopy mother. I WILL know what is going on, one way or another, though I'd prefer to do it without being bombarded by rap/hip-hop. Give me Meat Loaf or some good 60/70's rock any day.

Its after 1 am and the little monsters are still awake. Time to go monster hunting. Where's Van Helsing when you need him?

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.
