This is going to have to be a short entry as my monitor appeared to have a heartattck during a power failure while I was at work. It was fine when I left this morning, but when I came back from work, my clocks were blinking and my monitor was deceased. I had to run to Busy Bubbles to update this (local 24 hr laundromat-tanning salon-car wash - don't ask)

First the good news, I've lost 6 pounds, my pants are getting loose and my shirts are hanging better. I've discovered all those greens I turned my nose up at as a kid, mainly because my mom rendered them all into seaweed, are actually quite good raw, especially with a little lite Raspberry vinegrette.

The bad news and the reason this has been a weekend from hell. My wonderful sweet son, decided that Friday was a good day to totally loose it and basically took a swing at his teacher, from too far away to actually hit her, but to be percieved as threatening. He is now spending the weekend in juvy till court on Monday. I'm not thinking to clearly, but the trouble he will have at home is going to be a lot worse than anything the judge will throw at him. I'm at my wits end with this kid.

I'm hoping this will teach him a lesson, but I wonder how long it will stick. Somehow grounding him, just doesn't seem enough. I think its time to take tough love one step further. Sometimes I think he needs more than I can give.

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.
