Another milestone - of sorts

I finally did it!! I finally packed up all my fat clothes and donated them to a local thrift store. There is no turning back now. I have to buy new clothes and I refuse to ever go for a larger size again. I got rid of my fall back, my safety net. If I gain, nothing will fit me. I no longer have anything in my closet larger than a 16, except for some worn out sweats I use as PJ's which I would never be seen in public in anyway.

There is something very cathartic and yet kind of sad about parting with something so simple and such such and important part of one's life, and a strong symbol of who a person is. It was almost like some surreal scene out of a movie or something. I kept waiting for the director to queue up the music montage of my life as larger woman. Its a very weird yet positive experience. Almost like saying good bye to a relationship you are going to miss, even though it wasn't really good for you. But it was still a large part of who you are, and always will be.

I also finally tackled the Mt. Everest of laundry that has been sitting around for way way too long. Instead of sitting in my house doing one load at a time, I got energized and decided to just drag it all to Busy Bubbles, a Fargo landmark since before most people can remember. The television doesn't work, but what beats free drying and free wireless internet, while you wait for your clothes to no longer smell like road kill. (okay so I exaggerate a teeny bit)

Its actually a very cool place. Being fairly close to NDSU, means at times it is also like a mini United Nations, or a bad ad for Bennetton (am I the only one who remembers those?)

Of course I also didn't get out of the house until almost 3pm. Hell I didn't get out of bed until Noonish and wasnt' showered until 1ish.

Note to self: no matter how good they taste, jello shots are a really bad idea, especially if you've already had a Long Island. {I went to a move afterwards and had eaten a good meal before, so I was quite able to drive home, sober. I'm not that stupid. }

I am so getting old. I used to stay out past 2 am, party, get up adn go to work the next day, come home nap and do it again. Now, I think I'd drop if I tried to do that. I'm 37 going on 77.

And so it goes.

Can somebody please tell me which Jack Nicholsen movie this quote is from. It's driving me nuts, and I"m too lazy to google it.

Sell crazy someplace else. We're all stocked up here

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.
