Up a creek with out a paddle

Rain rain please please go away, and don't come back for many many days. We have so much now, that the wheat and beet fields will soon resemble rice paddys.

It poured buckets again today, and by that I mean more than the streets could handle so my normal 15 or so minute drive home took more like 45 freaking minutes as I couldnt' take the short most direct route I normally take, at least not until I outfit my Honda with pontoons and and outboard, or trade her in for something with an Evenrude. I wound up taking a path that was way long around what I normally take and still had to drive thru water half way up to my hubcaps. I wound up turning around at two different places as I wasn't about to take a chance with this car going thru water of questionable depth. I worked too hard for this baby, not going to flood her out, or worse.

if that wasn't enough, when I finally go to the last stop light near my house, I had to sit thru three lights as the city is too stupid to realize this intersection needs arrows during the peak traffic hours {like say 5:45 pm during a monsoon}, I won't even talk about the Semi that was trying to make way to narrow a turn and almost took out me and three other cars, were we not able to move, so he just wound up making some interseting marks on somebody's lawn {the boulevard part next to the street}. I know my blood pressure was ready to do a tea kettle imitation.

On the brightside I know my windshield wipers work very well, too bad they don't have one more speed on them, like say maybe a warp drive.

I did love having to run the defroster when it was about 350 degrees and 250 percent humidity though, so my windows didnt' look like I was having the kind of fun usually reserved for teenagers at a drive in.

good thing Fargo didn't take down the dike yet. I have a feeling they may just want to leave it up for awhile.

There is someting really wrong when Florida and eastern states are having dry years and we are being washed away by midwestern monsoons.

Who needs the gym. If I want to do water aerobics I just go swim across the street.

That's only a slight exaggeration.

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.
