Please see my previous entry, Warren's best friend is still not back in school.

This weekend we actually had a pretty good time. Saturday we got tired of being in the house so we went out for ice cream and ended up going to see Corpse Bride. I thought it was a fairly decent movie. For some reason I wasn't in the right mood for that movie, but it did have some funny parts, esp the Skeleton Dance and the maggot who looked/talked like Peter Lorre. If you liked the Nightmare Before Christmas, this will feel very familiar. However very small or easily frightened children might find it a bit much, otherwise I think most kids would enjoy it. I liked it more than I didn't like it, and the animation was pretty cool.

Sunday we grilled brats, however the fire in the grill was more than we intended so I also have a bunch of potatos grilled up for the rest of the week, they are great fried for breakfast or reheated for lunch. We still had plenty of heat going, so we treated ourselves, by making a run to the grocery store for graham crackers, Hershey bars, and marshmellows. I haven't had a S'More in years, and these were heavenly. It was also nice to have some quiet time with Warren, where we weren't arguing or fighting over something. I know he is worried about his friend, but lately nothing seems to please him, so it is a great rare treat when we have fun together, the sugar rush was just frosting on the cake so to speak.

Today his class is supposed to go on a field trip to McDonald's. But Warren isn't sure if he will get to go or not now. Apparently a couple weeks ago, somebody in the class stole a game, and never came forward or returned it. So the whole class got called in for the ususal, "since the guilty won't come forward, we are punishing everyone" lecture. Warren still had time left on his timer (not sure how that works), so he thinks he may not get to go. I am hoping he does. I don't believe he would have taken the game, as he hasn't stolen since he was 7 and I made him take it back and appologize. If he hadn't been called in for the lecture he would have had all his minutes. And he made all of his points.

Look at the time. I need to go get breakfast going. I am still not used to the daylight savings time. It always takes me a week. Personally I think they should fall back on a Sunday night so we get an extra hour of sleep before work on Monday, and than Spring Forward on a Friday night, since most people would probably (or at least me) rather loose an hour on Saturday when you are going to sleep in anyway. I just hate having to reajust my bio-clock twice a year. The clock says 7, but my body says 8.

Off to make pancakes for Warren, its bagel-muffin-donut day at work for me..ummm sugar and lard, two of my favorite food groups.

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.
