It has been a long day. I visited Warren today, instead of tommorrow, as he wants to go on a field trip tommorrow. I did get some pictures of him and of us, but as I'm still last century with regaards to photographic technology, it will be awhile before I can post them.

We did have a good time, though he whooped me at pool. I did give him a tough match however.

It is Novemeber in North Dakota, it is almost Thanksgiving and the ground is still bare. Something very nice, yet odd about that.

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.
