Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the pool.

It turns out my clutzy, let's see what this does genes have indeed been passed on to one more generation, in the form of my son. My son, you know him, he's 6ft tall, has red hair, a broad build, and a forehead full of hickeys. Yes, hickeys. Unforntunately they arent' the kind of hickey's teenagers enjoy getting, there weren't even any females involved.

While swimming the other day, my brilliant offspring in a search to enjoy the feel of the output valve water on his forehead, some how managed to find his forehead sucked to the side of the pool when he got too close to the intake valve. Luckily he wasn't hurt but he did have a bit of a time getting his head off of it, and now he has some marks that just defy explaination. Poor kid, didn't even really want to tell me what happened, which of course only made me more curious, after all I am MOM. I was nice and didn't RAZZ him too much, but come on.. they don't like like normal bruises. One look and you know there has to be a whopper of a story.

Warren got to do an overnight this weekend. Its gonna be weird when he goes back. Its so nice to have him sleeping in the next room, and to have somebody to make breakfast for in the am. Somebody with a bottomless plate. {how can anyone eat 6 large pancakes and 4 sausages}.

It was a quiet weekend for the most part, and of course it went to fast. But I just like having him here. I again went over board with the cooking. I've got to move past this food equal love thing.

Tonight I made marinated chicken thights {veggie burger for me}, vinegrette potato salad with looootttts of garlic}, tossed salad, corn, vanilla cake with creamy fruit topping and Schiessa brought watermelon. Breakfast was wholegrain, banana buckwheat pancakes with real maple syrup, blueberries and pineapple orange juice. {actually we were out very late so it was more like brunch}.

I love cooking, but if I don't get a grip I'm gonna get my old butt back. I rather like this one. I discovered another benifit of loosing weight last night. It is much easier to sqaut in the woods, if you have an emergency need to go water the flowers at 2 am {don't ask}.

I can tell Warren loves it. Where else do they make your favorites and feed you till you can't walk. He's always complainign DBR doens't feed them enough.

I really don't want Monday to ruin things.

Ugh in exactly 19 days I'll be the mother of a 15 year old. I don't feel old enough to be the mom of a 15 year old, except when the alarm buzzes, than I'm old enough to be the mom of a 30 year old.

I that isn't embarrasing enough. When I ran to the store earlier today, I realized I was wearing the exact same bib overalls as the girl in the Little Debbie standie/display. How'd that happen. Oh well. I look damn good in them. I don't care if they are country. I'm my father's daughter, and he was right. They are comfy and slimming.

time to toodles, hickey head is back from biking with Schiessa

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.
