Knot at the end of my rope

I am still here, I just havent' had a lot of time to do entries. Getting on the computer right now is a bit of a challange sometimes.

So far Warren seems to be doing great in school, though its only the second week so I can't judge too much yet. Though I've noticed he seems to be feeling a lot better about him self since he's slimmed down this summer. I didn't realize how much until we bought him pants discovered he's gone from a 42 to a 38. I think he may have grown another inch or so too. I'm scared to find out.

I'm starting to feel that halftime stretch. I've been craving more crap food lately, and not eating nearly enough veggies like I should (though I have eaten enough spinach to give Popeye a run for his money). I just seem to have lost my chugga chugga somewhere. I'm still getting in my walking and watching my portions. I haven't gained, but I just feel like I've lost my groove.

I"m sure a lot of it is financial stress. Also the ex got picked up again, for driving when he shouldn't have been. This time he was sober and actually trying to do something good (haul in scrap metal to make some money for himself and to help Warren), but he had problems with the trailer. Since this will be conviction number I don't even know what for driving under suspension, he may be looking at some real time. I'm glad to have him out of my hair, but I also feel bad because I know what it will do to Warren and how once again I will be the one cleaning up the mess. It also means that what little Mike was doing to help will be gone.

I am feeling so stressed out about money, it is not even funny. I don' t want to work extra hours or get a second job, but right now I may not have any choice. Unless somebody knows of a really rich old man looking to adopt a chuncky 37 year old single mother and leave her his fortune.

Right now it would be very easy to revert to my old ways. I guess its time to tie a knot in my rope and hold on.

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.
