Wet underwear and Wally World

I used to love my washing machine. Today I hate it. I put in a load of whites on the highest temp because I am a procrastinator of the nth degree who just realized she is out of underwear and isnt' ready to hit Walmart in dark blue cotton pants worn commando style, even if the old guy passing out smiley faced stickers might get an unintended thrill out of it. So I washed my load and then sent Warren down to toss it in the dryer. This is where things went totally wrong, as even though the washing machine was done, it still had water in it. So my clothes are no going to take over an hour to dry. Every once in awhile it does this and then the next load will be fine. I'd yell at it, but I don't speak enough Swedish to get thru to it.

So while I am waiting for that, I'm wasting time on the internet and yelling at Warren to turn the stereo down. For some reason he has become Speaker Boy, he must have 7 or 8 speakers hooked up to that stereo of his. I don't know when it happened but he's become all about the sound. Except when that gets old, and now he is whing about the dryer because Wally World and all thier cheap imported from overseas sweatshops and sold by non-union sales people who are forced to sing stupid jingles everyday junk is awaiting us and our hard earned money. Not to mention the fact that "mom you promised to buy me new shoes to day. Now lets get going already" is being delayed by this fact of hygeine. Then there is the fact that I said we could see The Day After Tommorrow today. Because when you've had a bad Friday nothing makes it better than watching giant tidal waves destroy New York while bad CGI tornadoes run thru Hollywood with very good aim.

On the brightside, being able to sleep in and not have to be anywhere at an ungodly hour, meant that we got to make a real breakfast on real plates, to be eaten with actual forks. Today's menu? Sausage an blueberry pancakes (I love DakotaMaid pancake mix). Of course I got a bit stiffed on my sausages, as my son is also an evil sausage theif in disguise. Man I missed mornings like this, minus the whining. I'm not really looking foreward to the housecleaning part of the day, but I am hoping we can get together for some grownup time and a new copy of the Insider for me, courtesy somebody else's mailing goof. Man I love my friends.

Now I'm going to going to take my shower/bath and hope my undies and such are dry soon, before my son thinks I should go out in wet things.

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.
