Happy 2007 Everyone!! May it be better than 2006, especially for those who had a bad 2006.

I spent New Years Eve at a party thrown by a couple of great friends. I learned that I suck ass at hearts (maybe it was the shot of rum that screwed my game), that I am a pretty cut throat Shit on Your Neighbor player, and I can kick at Harry Potter Scene it!!

I also ate way too much chocolate, and rediscovered why I don't drink. One shot of Rum, half a glass of wine that I didn't even finish and I was done for.

I fell asleep about 3/4 of the way thru Arcade, and missed the ending. It was cheesy, but kinda of cool. A very young Seth Greene, a bizarely teenage Peter Billingsly and John Delancie being John Delancie, what's not to like, cheese or no cheese.

I finally got home at about 3 am. Warren spent the night at a friends house, but sort of forgot to let me know. He's off the hook now, but he's not going to be forgetting about it for a long long time.

My Year in Review


I finally got a handle on my health/weight issues. I lost over 90 pounds, and my cholesterol dropped from 208 to 168. I look better, feel better and have much more energy. I learned I really am more capable than I give myself credit for.

I improved dramatically at work, and learned about a somewhat sideways promotion that I am somewhat interested in, but for some reason can't bring myself to stick my head out for. Though I better make up my mind soon, or it will be decided for me.


My finances are still as sucky and scarey as ever. I seriously considered a second job, but couldn't figure out how to fit it in, as I am never home as it is.

My depression seemed to get better than got worse, as Warren's behavior started to go down hill. He managed to find some less than great friends and make some very stupid decisions this year, despite starting out the school year with a bang. It is bad enough I made a psych appointment for myself for Feb, sooner if someone cancels. Maybe this time we can find a med cocktail that doesn't make me weirder. Or am I the only one who's ever woke up and felt like they were in the wrong body?


The stupid landlord ended our lease, and we had to leave a place we liked for this crappy hole. Its okay, but I hate it, hate it hate it. It reminds me of too many things, I want to forget about.

The idiot ex managed to get himself in more trouble and will once again become a guest of the Cass County Inn.

It was the ten year anniversary of my father's sudden and very suprising death, which dredged up a lot of old memories and feelings for me, though oddly it is also what prompted me to become so obbsessed with health and nutrition, so that was actually a bit of a good thing, in an odd sort of way.

I think I've used my health and weight as a means of coping this year. I've focused so much attention and energy on my body in order to keep my mind from thinking too much or dealing with the other stuff going on in my life. It was my sanity saver, and if I hadn't I think I would have gained 90 pound instead of loosing it.

May 2007 bring goodness and prosperity, health and wellness. I really need all of the above.

Happy Prosperous 2007 to everyone

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.
