I'm pleased to announce that we made it to Warren's appointment right on time today, but barely. I had some lady call with some screwed up issues just as I was ready to leave. (God I swear if I ever become one of those whiny old ladies who does nothing but complain about everything and everybody and about how things were so much better in the old days, and how bad everything hurts to anyone who will listen my son has my permission to shoot me). I managed to dump her off on some one else in Customer care, I know it was rude, but I was in a hurry and really did NOT want to deal with this old bitty, who wanted me to lie beause she didn't want to deal with stuff. Like I'm gonna risk my job over that.

I've also learned that "when in doubt call the other kids mom" is a very good policy. Warren and Alex wanted to have a sleep over, since both Rhonda (Alex's mom) and I usually have "if she says its okay, its okay with me" policy, the boys have figured out how to use this to their advantage. Both of us work tommorrow. So they told Alex's mom I was off, and then told me that Alex's mom said it was okay and that they could go over there in the morning. Well that sounded just a little fishy so I told them I would have to talk to Rhonda first. As soon as I said that I heard a "ahhh man" comment that told me they were busted. Sure enough, Alex's parents both have to work as well. So it sounds like they were conspiring to be parental-unit free, but it backfired. Fortunately they were both fine with this. Mainly I think because Warren was exhausted. He actually fell asleep by 8:30, giving me something I haven't had in ages. An entire evening of peace, quiet and solitude. I couldn't go to B&N or any place like I would have liked to but still it was so nice to be done with the noise. And believe me when tween age boys get together the decible levels can soon reach airport levels. And when they don't that is when you really start to worry, because that usually means they are plotting something, or setting the house on fire. (well okay, not really but ..)

It is with great sadness that I also must bid adieu to my favorite pair of sandals. The bottom is no longer attached to the top part and as such they have gone from my great comfy wear them all the time sandals into a clod hopping pair of ankle twisters. They will be sorely missed. Until I find a suitable replacement, I will have to wear my new high tops. They are comfy, but not as much as my poor dearly departed sandals. I hope I can find some soon, I wore my ankle twisters today and my feet now look like foot shaped water balloons. (**those violins you hear playing in the background are this big, |--| and playing just for me**)

On a more serious note, there is an article in the Forum today about group of closed minded religious radicals starting a petition to pass yet another amendment to make sure North Dakota stays bigoted and close-minded and discriminatory, times two. Yes even though they already passed a law back in '97 to make sure homosexual Americans are treated like 2nd class citizens they want to make sure and spell it out in black in white to make sure there is no mistaking us for open minded nonjudemental human beings who get to know a person before making judgements on thier character, and don't judge a preson by thier sexual orientation.

I love my home state, and there are so many great things about North Dakota despite my often complaining about it. It is one of the most beautiful places, the Badlands alone can take your breathe away. It is a very friendly state with an extremely low crime rate, and a great education system (despite the lowest paid teachers in the nation), and more colleges/Universities per capita than any other state. It was a great state to grow up in, and has alot to offer. It is my home, my native land, and yet when I read about that, I can't help but feel sad and ashamed of my own state.

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.
