Andrew is finally letting us edit our entries, even though we can't publish new ones. I have a blog at Myspace which several of you are aware. But for the sakes of those who don't wish to bother with MySpace, I have set up temporary lodgings and a back up mirror site at blogspot. I can be found at Until updates are again possible you can read me there.

Hopefully the great server snafu {situation normal, all fucked up} will soon just be a memory. But until then you know where to find me

First some Unconscoius Mutterings to warm up my brain. {}

Its been a beautiful Sunday. I forgot how much nicer life is when you have a car and can go places and see things, meet new and very insteresting people, enjoy long forgotten hobbies. Get out of the house and enjoy something that resembles a life.

I finally got up my nerve {and had the car to make possible}, something that I've been thinking about and mulling in my head for sometime. I was nervous as hell, but it turns out I need't be.

Some of you may remember back many entries ago, when I talked about a favorite Pdoc of my son's who passed away unexpectedly and far too soon {car accident}. I took Warren to his funeral. The funeral was at a Unitarian Church in MN. Something about the way it was done, the whole celebration of the deceased's life, instead of the more tradional Churchy ceremony, while still having a ceremondy of sorts struck a chord with me. I have been mulling things around in my head and pondering them for sometime.

Finally today I got up the nerve to go to a service and check it out. In this part of the world obviously it is a very small congregation, but growing. I can't remember the last time a group of strangers were so welcomming and low pressure. There are only a few more services until summer break, but I'm fairly certain I will be back. I love the way they embrace all religions with out actually being one of them, but rather a unique way of looking at things, that celebrates all life and sees good in bad in all, with out descrimination that runs so rampant in many other so called Religions. I prefer to make up my own mind about things, and have my own path. This fits that perfectly, with out defining things for me.

The other thing I did was go Thrift shopping. Something I used to do almost weekly before I had Warren and life changed so much. I forgot how much I love looking thru all the neat "junk" and finding buried treasure. I didn't find any over looked DaVincis, but I did find some cool kitchen items and a great Leo mug, as well as neat Barometer/thermometer/humidity wall hanging. Oh and great pair of Khakis.

I went from thier to visit Warren who is still being his usual self. I want to believe him, but something is telling me not to. I want him to get a fair shake, but I also know he needs a lot of help if he is going to change like he says he wants to.

I also went grocery shopping, and not at my local store {which I still love} but at the mega store I used to work in, {many moons ago}. I went in to get a few small things and as always spent way too much. But they have crystalized ginger {a treat I love way too much, but a good reward for resisting the Thin Mints being sold in the foyer by the local Girl Scouts}. I also had to restrain myself in the tea aisle. There are too many to try and my cupboard runneth over already.

I just got home about an hour or so ago, to have a my giant salad, and fresh tuna.

I've gone for one walk today, to get the paper. Just because I have a car, doesn't mean I can forget I have two good feet attached to two good legs.
It is so gorgeious out {75, sunny and not a bug in sight, yet}. I just may walk to the video store instead of driving.

Hope everyone else is having a great sunday. IF you need something to do, I have some dishes and a bathroom that could use some cleaning. I'm always up for volunteers.

5-6-07 Andrew must be getting close, I can actually edit my entries, if not actually update.

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.
