Yes I am still on the planet, I think. What planet am I supposed to be on again?? If it's Earth, I think we are okay.

Warren has had two excellent weeks in a row. Now that I've made getting his permit, after his next birthday, part of the deal, he's done an amazing turn around. Now the only hard part, for me, is the thought of my son behind the wheel of two tons of hurling metal. How do those of you with driving teenagers get any sleep at night. If it were up to me, I'd make him wait until he was 21. But I started driving at 14 (in the country on roads where two cars meeting constituted a traffic jam). I know how I was, I know my son, and I'm already having nightmares, even though his actual license is still a year and half away. (I have a feeling the next 18 months will move light speed).

I also discovered teenage boys really don't like it when thier mom shows up for an appointment with the same "Dark Side of the Moon" (Pink Floyd) design on thier shirt as he's wearing. He had no problem with the shirt match, he just didn't like my pointing it out. I am impressed that he has developed a taste for Classic Rock. That's my baby boy. I was also flattered that he had the councilor play The Mom Song, by ICP for me. Despite the groups looks, its really a pretty sweet song. I guess it was his way of saying he loves me. All together now, AWWWWW!!!

I also have to wonder about some other kid's parents. Today I actually talked to a guy named Atilla. I didn't ask if he was a Hun, but I wanted to. I can't imagine what possesed his parents to name him Atilla, unless it is some sort of bizarre family thing I probably don't want to know about.

I must be tired, for the first time in my life, I don't have anything to say.

Hopefully life will let up a bit and I can go back to posting more often, like I used to. I am so far behind on reading my fellow bloggers (again!), that it will take me days just to catch up. So if I'm not commenty, it isn't that I'm not reading. Its just that work and The Dink are overwhelming me, as is life in general. But rest assured, I miss you guys and think of you everyday.

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.
