    I wanted to explain a little about yesterday's somewhat cryptic entry. What happened is after a month of great work, just when he was this close to finally making it to level 2 at school, Warren decided to go and blow it all, by refusing to work and being disrepectful to teachers. He had a choice of which staff to work with and where he wanted to work. But as is often the case with Warren, no many how many choices he is offered he wants an option not on the menu, and then gets upset at having no choice when he can't have that option and a choice is made for him.

    The school called me and I tried to calm him, but he wasn't having any of it. and begged me to come get him, saying he was afraid of what he was going to do. It went against my judgement but I picked him up and had a mini conference with one of the principals and with his teacher, where I got the real store, not just the Warren friendly version. He had a chance, he could have turned his day around and still made points, but instead he chose to take a bump in the road and turn it into Mt. Vesuvius (some days I think that would have been a more appropriate name for some one who is willing to go thru a two hour fight to get out of a 10 minute task).

    Once we got into the car, the real fire works began. I wasnt' going to take him home. I had meeting with PSJ, but we decided that it would be too much like going home (Ie an easy out to keep him from facing things), I tend to agree, but I also wanted to make sure he knew I meant business. I made it clear with the school and him, as both were there, that he used up his get out of jail free card. Next time they call me, I won't bail him. He either gets a grip and deals or faces the consequences.

    When we got home and both his psp and ps2 were conficated he had another melt down. That is when I went for a walk. He came with me for some of it, but then turned around and came home when I wasn't going to play the "poor misunderstood Warren" game.

    When I came back I found out, he took his meds on his own, before I came back. He fell alseep in the chair while his friends were here, including a girl who is a friend who brought over her ps2, after seeing Warren had been grounded from his. He did get up later and eat dinner, but then he couldn't get to sleep until he took another dose of Benadryl (we use it for his allerigic dermatitis).

    He seemed better today, but it still a bit on the cranky side.

    I wish I could understand him better. He is so smart, but won't see it. Is it really that hard for him. Is it really that hard to know when you need to just sit down, shut up and do what you're told?

    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.
