Taco Bell means never having to say you're sorry

So I made my appologies to Warren by bringing him Taco Bell for dinner, even though I can't afford it and I have left over chicken, stuffing and baked potatos from last night that need to be eaten in the next day or so. To be honest I think my loosing it last night was more about his being more intersted in hanging out with his friends and not liking the dinner I slaved over (roast, stuffed chicken, baked spuds, semi homemade almost from scratch stuffing), and he took his plate out side and only ate the stuffing and half the potato, yet later had room for two huge bowls of cereal.

When he didn't want to try his homework and made excuses about being tired (which he was) and then said that he didn't really need to do it, but just volunteered to bring it home, and he could do it in class with out loosing points. I guess I flipped a bit and lost my temper. I later appologized, but I still felt rotten, because he wouldn't do it this morning either. I acted like I believed him, but the truth is I didn't really. This afternoon, I talked to his teacher and he has been having excellent days and he had been telling me the truth about his homework which he finished easily in class and moved on to something much harder, as when he is bored with something he also starts acting up and not caring and messing up on purpose, just saying any old answer.

Its only been three days, but I can already tellt that the specialized attention and curriculum geared towards his abilities and skills with more attention will do wonders.

When we talked about an awards program for getting his homework done in the future he seemed really psyched, about it. And what can I get if I get it done before you get home, and so on. Lets just hope he is this gung ho after school's been on for a month or two and the real pressure hits.

One day at a time, I guess that is all I can handle and sometimes even that is too much.

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.
