I've Stollen the bread

It's been a long busy day, but it's been productive. I managed to do most of the things, I had planned to do previous but didn't {like Xmas shop and bake}.

I got up at my usual 5am {no really} and managed to clean the toilet {nasty icky} as well as mop the kitchen and bathroom and finish the dishes and do a couple loads of laundry.

At 10:30 I had my bi-weekly counciling session with Warren, which ended up with me taking him to the walk in, when I pointed out how nasty his ear looked. After the appointment, they had the nurse look at it, and she concurred with me. Turns out he has a combination of his exzema getting inside his ear and getting infected and a bad case of swimmers ear.

After running Warren back to DGBR, I had to high tail it back for my appointment, with MY councilor, oddly enough at the same building. I had a few minutes, so I ran to Great Harvest which is just a couple blocks away. My Aunt's Christmas present should be arriving on Wednesday. After that I had to hightail it again as I agreed to give Le Idiot, a ride to visit Warren.

From their I ran all the way to the otherside of town, to GRHS {German-Russian Historical Society}, which thankfully was amazingly easy to find. It was conveniently located inside the NDSU library. My mom's Christmas present was taken care of. I spent way more than I planned, but I know my mom will flip {I found a historical book from Pierce county, where she grew up, a video about Odessa by a priest my mom grew up with {very small area, if you sneeze the entire town says "bless you"} and a book of tales from German Russian Life}.

From there I ran to work to pick up my employee order, gave Le Idiot a ride back, than came home heated up some left overs for dinner.

Right now I have Stollen loaves rising.
And I'm finally relaxing. I may make some pumpkin or banana bread {the other night I had planned to do it, it just didn't happen}.

Oddly I'm not even depressed even though it will be 11 years ago this week. Tommorrow will be {what would have been} my Dad's 76th birthday. Usually I'm so despressed this time of year, I can't function. Appaarently {no pun intended}, I'm finally moving on.

I appologize for being so behind on blogging and reading other blogs. I just havent' had any computer time lately. I haven't had any time lately.

Anybody want some -30 windchills? Its supposed to be a frigid night.

I love my quilts.

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.
