Speculation and advice needed

I finished HP6 this morning. I would have finished it last night, but the thrills of motherhood got in the way. How dare my son need me where I'm busy with the goings on at Hogwarts. I'll be rereading it anyway as Warren and I read it together, but I just couldn't wait. I love the way the books get darker and more mature as the kids get older and are able to do more, and understand more. JKR is a master storyteller and I hope she continues to write after HP7. She certainly doesn't need the money, so she can write whatever she wants, even if she does have a certain repuation to live up to.

HP is one of the few, if not the only book not involving 90% pictures and diagrams that my son is interested in. Other books my son couldnt' care less about. But I started reading HP to Warren in first grade and he has been hooked along with me ever since. Anything that has my son intersted in reading has my seal of approval, and for that I will always be in Ms. Rowlings debt.

I won't ruin any spoilers for those of you that haven't yet had a chance to read or finish the books, so I won't mention which character dies, however I believe things are not as they seem, and that as much background as book 6 gives us, now that all the characters are in place, book 7 should have more suprises than all the other books combined. I think there is more to Voldemart that we don't yet know, that Snape isn't what he appears to be, and the locket is more important than it appears. I just wonder how long it will take for the 7th book to come out. Since it will be the last one, I imagine the publishers will want to milk it for all it is worth, especially since the movies are only currently in production on HP4:GOF. It should be intersting to see how they time it, especially considering the fact that the main stars are going to continiue to grow up, wether the producers want them too or not, and if they make it to number 7 it will have to be before the kids are too old to pass for 17/18. ( I just hope they don't decide to recast).

Warren is thrilled that dispite some rocky mornings, he has done well enough with going to summer school this year that Mrs. O (one of his aids /paras) has decided to treat him to lunch at Space Aliens (think of the pizza place in Toy Story only with more food choices and a bar for the grownups). He is thrilled, and I am thrilled for him. Of course that also means he is trying to wheedle money out of me for games, as I told him it would be impolite to ask her.

Mike goes back to jail next week, and I can't say I'll miss him. I hate what his behavior does to Warren and the fact that he thinks Warren is supposed to act like it is no big deal. But thruthfully I'll be glad to have him out of my life. And if he makes any money working in prison, than Chris and I get a cut first before he gets it, even if it isn't enough to really matter. (Though he did voluntarily give me $100 from the money he made collecting scrap metal- which aint' much but is definatley something).

The nerve of him. He actually tried to come on to me today (I saw one of his prescriptions some idiot doctor actually agreed to give him Viagra at tax payer expense yet - wtf is up with that). Than he got mad and called me cold and frigid because I was less than not interested. What the hell does he think I am some rabbit who'll do it with anyone just for that sake of doing it. Sorry, I have standards. I don't believe in sex for the sake of sex, I have to actually care about the person and be in some sort of mutual caring equal relationship, I'm nobody's fuck buddy!! (At least not his anyway, the guy is about as much fun as an ingrown toenail, and harder to get rid of).

I also wanted to bring up another more serious subject. I'm due to go in for my annual physical again (my cholesterol levels need checking as do a few other things). Last year my doctor mentioned starting my mamograms when I am 36 (which will be next month). I know this is important, and needs to be done regularly. But I've never done this before and it isnt' something I am looking foreward to. I hate going in for things when I have no idea what to expect. I tend to be the type of person who turns every bump in to a raging tumor and every mole in to melanoma, even while acting like everything is no big deal on the outside, deep down I am freaking and figuring out who will care for Warren with out me. Those of you who have been there, what can you tell me, to show me how stupid I'm being. I agree it needs to be done, I'm just a little freaky about it. What can I expect? Does it really hurt? Should I do anything to prepare. I am sure it would be scheduled for a different day than the rest of my physical anyway, but I tend to do better the more prepared I am, well usually anyway. Advice, ideas, war stories? (please no major horror stories, I don't need any nightmares). I am hoping to schedule my physical for near my birthday, and then I can figure out the rest from there.

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.
