Disaster Averted

"Splash," said a raindrop
As it fell upon my hat;
"Splash said another
As it trickled down my back.
"You are very rude," I said
As I looked up to the sky;
Then another raindrop splashed
Right into my eye!

Will someone please make this rain go away already. This is nuts. Its not even half way thru June and we've had almost 6 inches this month. Did I get moved to Washington and somebody forgot to tell me?.

On the brightside, persistance and whining pays off. I sent a third email to Andrew and finally got a response. Now I just have to sort thru all my code. Apparently the java that runs the stats code, isn't liking some other java I have on my page, so it decided to take its ball and go home, rather than play. Weirdly I haven't added any code since I changed my template. I did delete some items that weren't working. Hopefully it isn't a case where I have to spend two hours to discover I missplaced a / or . somewhere. Anybody out there good at figuruing out misbehaving java scripts. IF not I'll take all my scripts off and add them one by one, till I see who isn't playing nice. Yuck.

Mike decided to do yet something else stupid. I'm not sure when or how, but he managed to almost cause another disaster. My son's meds were originally prescribed to be 40 mg at night and 20 mg in the morning. Since I am poor my dr. is kind enough that we get samples (my BC/BS covers visits). So he had two different bottles one labled 20mg and one labeled 40mg. One pill was blue and white the other pill was all blue. After his last dr. visit the nighttime meds were upped to 60 mg. This came in a different bottle and was an all white pill. The bottles are clearly labled and when it is time to give Warren his med, I simply grab the bottle with the correct label, double check once and give it to him. ( I think you can see where we are going with this). This morning I grabbed the 20mg bottle and after Warren had eaten (we went out for Stop and Go breakfast sandwiches today - damn they are good) I gave him his pill he looked at it, than started to take it.

But no sooner had he put it in his mouth than he spit it out. Wondering why he did that I asked him.

Mom these aren't the right ones. These are too strong"

I looked in the bottle and sure enough there were both blue and blue and white pills. Thank God my son is very observant about details or we could have had a disaster. While with this particular med, I don't think 40mg would have been fatal or an emergency, it certainly would have knocked him flat on his ass all day, at minimum. I would never combine meds from two different bottles, and I know Warren wouldn't. So the only guilty idiot has to be Mike unless somebody is sneaking in my house messing with medicine bottles when I am not there. Lesson of the day, whenever taking pills, or giving them to someone pay attention and know what pills are supossed to look like what. With some meds the wrong dosage could be fatal or at best a trip to the ER. Not something anybody would want to deal with. Damn Fool!!

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.
