No, not the boobie section.

Ahh, Do I have to go thru the boobie secion?!!? said loudly by my son Warren attempting to avoid walking thru the women's underwear section in Walmart last night on the way to check out.

Sometimes that kid really cracks me up. Last night we went shopping for school clothes. Our local Wally-World has a crappy selection of clothes for me. The pants were okay, but thier shirts leave a lot to be desired. I am not sending my 12 year old boy to school in a t-shirt that says "Available". I mean really. Granted it was in the adult men's department, as the stuff in the boy's section no longer fits him. I just have to figure out how to come up with the money to get him some new shoes as his old one's have blown out, and his 12EEE feet (not sure what that equals in UK/Euro sizes, but think freaking huge and wide) won't fit in to Wally World or other no name shoes. Nope so far the only shoes we have found that fit him comfortably and last are New Balance, $50 and up starting with the clearance models. To some people that is cheap for shoes, but to someone on my income, it is huge. I normally buy myself the under $20 shoes at Wally or Payless (fashion is so not my thing, my main rule with clothes is just wear some, preferably something comfy and somewhat suitable to the situation). Hell, I've spent almost this entire summer in a pair of $3 flip flops and they are still mostly holding together.

On the other hand, things could be worse. The rent is paid, we have groceries, and my son has some decent pants and socks. Howe the hell does a 7lb 4 oz baby zoom into a 40x30 pants in only 12 years.

I just hope this school year goes well. When we went to check out his class room. He was having a bad day, and had a bit of an attitude. I hope he gets over it. I know he is very nervous about being in a new school, not being the oldest any more, and having to adjust to a whole new routine, and all new people. As his mom, I've already had nightmares about it.

And of course his dad the high school drop out, has suddenly acquired and MD, and a LCSW, and decided he knows more than all of Warren's doctors and is going to tell me what milligrams tgo put him on..yadda yadda. .and his idea of discussing things is he makes a proclomation and everybody falls in line. Fuck that shit. How could I have ever fallin in love with such and A**h**.

Well its 7:30 time to hop in the shower and get ready for a day of listening to people bitch and moan cause I left my magic fix all wand at home. Gee I sound bitter today, must have been the red ink in my check book.

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.
