Anybody remotely interesting is mad, in some way or another. –the doctor, in Dr. Who

Why is the first wintery day of the year always such a suprise. I've lived in North Dakota my entire life, so it isn't as though I'm not totally used to cold weather and snow, but the first day is always a learning curve. To say nothing of all the other drivers, especially the newbies to winter driving.

Nothing says welcome back to reality like heading out the door to -5F temps. I think the high today, may have been in the teens I'm not sure. Current temps show it about 11F. We also had a mini blizzard last night that blew down from Canada {thanks guys}, and stopped as soon as it started. {about 5 hours or so later}. I got home just ahead of it, and actually missed it as I was sound asleep by 8:30. I knew it had to be an interesting one though as I had a totally fun time scraping the ice off my car and waiting for it to warm up. I even had to yank a bit to get my doors open.

When I get paid on Friday, I am so going to get some long johns. I just don't seem to keep as warm as I used to. Maybe its just a lack of insulation {hehehe} or something, but I seem to always be freezing unless I have the heat cranked.

Other good news, Warren is back where he needs to be, where I want him to be. Now its up to him to meet the conditions necessary to keep him there. He wasn't crazy about what he had to agree to, but reluctanly he agreed. I guess he reaized the alternative would be not nearly so pleasant. Let's hope that he can keep up his end of the bargain.

I also got an early Christmas this year. Last week I got a gorgeous pair of dangly blue star earings {have I mentioned I love almost all shades of blue, especially turquoisy ones}. I wore them over Thanksgiving and I must say they looked great with my almost new layered hair cut. Many Thank-yous to the lovely K-Lo

Today I came home to find a nice package from Adiago Teas {courtesy of the great Ada. For some reason, despite the package being right in front of my door, FedEx also left a note on my door indicating they attempted to deliver a pkg at 10:42 am.

Ummm okay you mean this package here on my door step. Thank you for letting me know. I love my ceramic tea pot {now I have one at work and one at home. Tea fan much?}, and a huge supply of assorted rooibos and white teas, as well as some lemon grass tea, just because I wanted to try it. I already drank an entire pot of Silver needles {white tea} so I'll be doing lots of bathroom runs, but it is so good.

If anyone wants to order from Adiago {see linky on left} I think I still have some refferals left to get you a 5 dollar gift certificate {and earn me some points}.

time to get some dinner. Feeling kind of corn and potatos tonight. Maybe I'll try some lemon grass tea. than I need to study for my stupid test at work tommorrow {don't ask}, and see if I can make it thru SVU. I fell asleep last week before the first doink doink, and I really wanted to see that one. Oh well, they always rerun them a zillion times anyway.

Its potty time.

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.
