It's so nice to come here with some good news..I GOT MY SUNDAYS OFF. I still have to work Sundays and get used to working my Tuesdays, instead of being off, on alternate weeks, but I'm pretty sure I can adjust. YAHOO.. working Sundays sucked big rotten dirty ones. That's one day every week I can sleep as late as I want and get all my household stuff down. Plus it will save me a ton of moula as I won't have to pay for rides to and from work, since this stupid town has no sunday bus service.

I think I was complimented today, at least I took it that way, since it was said in a nice way. Somebody at work asked me if I had surgery, or what my secret was. I'm not even sure who she is, I'm getting comments from people I barely know at work. Yesterday I had one of the Vietnamese ladies from the wharehouse asking me about it. {She's about 4'9" if not less and about 95 pounds in a wet wool coat, but a very nice lady. I've seen her around but have no idea what her name is]. The first lady seemed kind of bummed though when I told her I'm not following any specific diet, other than the me plan. I guess she was hoping for some magic secret instead of basic common sense, and hard work. And trust me it is hard. I still have fat days, and I doubt I will ever love my butt, I've always thought it looked like somebody ran over a watermelon with a steam roller.

To answer a comment in my last entry. I dont' normally clean Warren's room but out of fear of being attacked by a swamp creature I did pick up the floor enough to vacuum and round up the stray undies and socks, as well as put clean sheets on his bed, before CPS or the board of health come down on me. Warren is never exactly neat {he's his mother's son}, but he does ocassionally pick up, though 13 year old boy clean, will never compare to mom clean. I was also cleaning the rest of the house and once I get started, sometimes I have a hard time of knowing where to stop. Strange factiod about me: I'm positively anal about my cube at work, but you'd never know it if you saw my house. I doubt my coworkers would ever believe how my house normally looks on given day. I wouldn't call it domestiacally challanged as much as motivvationally challanged.

Today was garbage day in my neighborhood. I was walking past the assorted trash recepticles, bags and boxes {West Fargo has curbside service}, I was amazed at how much I could tell about my neighbors just by what I could see of their trash. I could tell which is the party house, with the college kids home from the weekend {beer and pizza galore], which house may be having tough times, as they always have case boxes of empty bottles of what one uses for tube or IV feeding {I can't think of the correct technical term}, the house who may or may not have gotten the news they wanted {pregnancy test and tampon boxes/wrappers], and who cleaned out the basement. Old porn, kids toys, crumpled office looking letters {no I don't snoop - this is just the stuff one can see clearly without prying]. It's amazing what you can tell about a household just by what they throw away. Garbolgist have a smell job, but I bet it is fascinating. I'm sure they'd have a field day going thru mine. {torn up porn-courtesy of The Teenager, outdated bills, recipes that didn't work, rotten banana pancake batter, single serving pill wrappers - why buy it when the first aid kit at work gives them out for free, tons of human hair wads, legal letters pertaining to the idiot, oh yeah way too much information.].

I do have one pressing question though, has anyone seen the last two episodes of Heroes?? I've been too busy being all momish with Warren and missed them. I also missed SVU, and would love to be filled in. Its one of my few guilty pleasures I still get to enjoy. I'm so exciting...

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.
