Okay that is scarily close to the truth. Too close for comfort actually.

Okay for the record I am NOT orderly and I am NOT a prude.

Well I got the invitations done and out. I didn't realize Warren had a couple of other kids over when I mentioned it, so now we have David and Jeremy invited as well, since I can't be rude when they asked and say "Sorry I'm only asking Alex, we can't have you" That's just rude. So if they all come (lets hope thier moms know the meaning of RSVP), and Chris and the boys come that will be 11 people. I hope that's it. This is already getting beyond what I was originally planning.

I called the motel and we have the party room reserved from 4-6pm on Saturday June 19th. Its $15 for the party room and $3 each for swim arm bands. Not too bad, they have an awesome waterslide, so I won't have to plan anything to entertain the herd. I am hoping Chris and the boys come, as another adult would be an awesome thing. I also have a room reserved, but its $50 for the night, so I'm not sure if I want it or not, though it would be nice to have a place for changing and relaxing and so forth.

We also went to Ca$shwi$4e and ordered the cake. Warren couldn't decide for sure what he wanted till he saw the cake with the Hummer on it. Then it was all she wrote. So he's got a Hummer cake for his birthday. If he hadn't seen that, it most likely would have been either the Harley-Davidson cake or the NASCAR one. He wanted the half-sheet, but I managed to talk him down to the quarter sheet, which at 24 servings is going to be great plenty. I can't afford anything bigger and we really don't need to be eating cake for a week.

Now I have two weeks to get the decorations and figure out what to serve besides cake. I am thinking Pizza and soda or chips or something. Something non sugar to combat the cake high. Something cheap and easy. I can get decorations dirt cheap at the local dollar store up the road on 13th. If I'm careful I may be able to snag some plates and plasticware from work, but you didn't hear that from me. It looks like this shindig is on its way. Now I just need to figure out a present for him, that won't break the bank.

He's also supposedly made a deal with one of the kids in the neighborhood to buy his new stereo system for way more than he put into it, but I'll believe that one when I see it. (This kid is more like his dad everyday- I tell you).

I also got a call and then an email from LSS regaarding Warren, apparently some how his last escapades at school (back about a month or two ago) have gotten him refeered for some youth program so in addition to his 2pm Pdoc appointment I know have another appointment to run him to. But at least I think the situation with the neighbor is straightened out, apparently she thought Warren was 9, not 11 (well 2 weeks short of 110, so she was thinking I was not paying as much attention as I should in what I let him do. (Just ask me next time? Sheesh)

But on the small world side, turns out she is the SIL of a well known Pastor who lived in our town for many years when I was young. What a small small world sometimes.

In other news its nice to know I'm not the only one who likes to play cooking show.

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.
