Not a morning person

I am totally discombobulated today. As a favor to another coworker (who is really a very nice person, which is why I was willing to do the favor for her), who was taking a craft class that would be most of the day, I agreed to switch shifts. That means I get Friday off, (even though I work this weekend it is still a good thing), however it also means I come in on my normal day off and work her hours, 6am-2:30pm!! For someone who isn't usually even awake until at least 7 or 7:30, this is quite a change.

I did impress myself though. I discovered it is possible to jump out of bed at 5:30 am, hop in the shower, get in my car, run thru the atm, stop for the paper and caffiene and still make it to work by 6:03am, with out breaking more than a couple traffic laws. It is nice and quiet in the mornings, but my body just isn't ready for the idea of lunch at 10am, or taking my last 15 at the time I normally take my 1/2 hour lunch. It is nice to be leaving at 2:30 however. My whole day is totally wacked..but with tommorrow also being payday it will be nice to be off.

Warren went to the free pool again with Andrew and of course he didn't want to be bothered with sunscreen or anything silly like that, so naturally his skin now once again matches his hair. Hopefully it will have healed enough by tommorrow so we can go swimming again. I'm in the mood for some sun and some color.

Speaking of Red, he has also developed a bad habit of not wanting to sleep at night and then not being able to get up in the morning. Wierd part is the med he is on is supposed to make him sleepier. Last night I tried giving it to him earlier. I also set the alarm clock near him to go off very loud, since I wasn't about to get him up at 5am (okay 5:30) with me. If he was late/missed again today I'm going to kill him. I know I was a night owl at his age, but he never used to be so bad. My luck he had to get that gene from me.

Time to go home.. yayyy!!

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.
