I have my computer back, complete with brand new motherboard and cd-r. She's purring like a well fed kitten.

But since I don't have scanner, I'm back at the library again. I present to you a retro entry.

Since Friday (8/10)is my 38th birthday (as of 2:55am - do I know when to make an entrance or what. Its taken me 37 years to become a reluctant morning person).

In honor of such a momentous occassion (well it's momentous to me anyway), I present to you, pics from my past.

I didn't have a baby pic of me (my mom keeps those), but I do have a pic of me and my granparents. My Gramma was Mabel and my Grampa was Herman (his first name was Nels but for reasons known only to him he prefered Herman). My Gramma taught school (8 grades) in a one room school house before she married my Grampa, and my Grampa was a farmer who came over from Sweden when he was only 21.(yes the baby in he middle is me)

The last picture I have of my mom and dad (and my "little" bro, Milo - who is 6ft 2). Its been so long, it feels strange looking at my dad now. Its been 10 years, but I still haven't gotten over it completly. I think I have my mom's hair.

As for this getup. Only the 80's can explain it. I was a victim of the times. I swear that's the only explanation. (I was 17 at the time. What did I know, I'd one day make fun of it)

And with no further introduction, I present the world's most adorable 4 year old. He's still my baby, but it's so hard to believe this pic is 10 years old. Where'd my baby boy go?

Hopefully the pics weren't too big. My photo editing skills still need some work.

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.
