my Independance Day

This year was a relatively uneventful 4th. Warren had a blast setting off his fireworks, then we ended up going to MSU, to watch the professional fireworks. As a kid I always looked foreward to setting off fireworks, I was more interested in lighting them myself and watching stuff blow up than in seeing a professional show. (heck as an adult I still enjoy a good explosion). But now as an adult I'd rather just watch and listen. My son however seems to be carrying the buck on as he loves setting them off, the louder and brighter the better. (more proof I have the right kid).

Of course it wouldn't be the 4th without at least one mishap, fortunatly this was minor and no one was hurt thought I am sure more than a few pairs of underwear were stained in the process. While using a cardboard tube from some other fireworks as a launching pad for bottle rockets (we are up to our pockets in bottle rockets -ehehe), the tube decided to tip over, after the fuse was lit. We were helpless to watch as the rocket zoomed across the fairgrounds and exploded underneath a pickup that was just making its way across the grounds. Fortunately nothing happened, other than a rather loud explosion underneath the moving vehicle of some random stranger. The truck driver must not have thought much of it, because nobody said anything. I think I would have had a heartattack.

I must say it is nice having two days off in a row, and getting paid for one of them. Today I have actually done several loads of laundry including my bedsheets, caught up on dishes, cleaned the bathroom, and went for a bike ride to McD's with my son. I hope to enjoy what time I can with him, at 12 I'm sure the days of wanting to hang out with mom are numbered, besides he is actually fun to be around. He can actually hold a conversation on world events, or other grown up topics and have an opinion. He's even a bit of a philospher. Who knew my son had an exetential streak in him. I must be rubbing off on him in more ways than one.

Time to go ride bike some more and than finish my house project. I think I may find a carpet under this mess somewhere.

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.
