Where I ramble on

What is it about people, normal healthy people who when presented with an endless array of food choices, suddenly decide they have the appetite of a Third World famine victim, despite the fact they have enough food in thier own kithens to serve a family of 12 on 15 minutes notice (okay so I tend to exaggerate a tish).

I feel like I need to run a marathon or something, and I stucky to the veggie choices (well, okay the carrot cake doesnt' techincally count as a veggie, but I didn't eat all of it).

At least I got to have something resemblinh a nice evening with my offspring, who isnt' being quite as obnoxious, and annoying as he has been in the past.

Odd side note that has nothing to do with this entry: I'm in the library and there is a little girl here about 4 or 5 who I swear is Kim Richard's doppelganger (the blonde girl from the original Witch Mountain movies, eerie.

Tommorrow is payday, which means it is also give all Holly's money away day. I have another pay check before rent is due, but the phone and electric aren't donating utiltities out of the goodness of their heart. To say nothing of the Red Headed Stranger needing a coat and someother clothing type items. He also looks in desperate need of a shave. I'm thinking of getting him his own razor, but I also think I might let his dad take on that one, I'm sorely over my head in that department. I just think he deserves to start with something more than a cheap disposable BIC.

But this is a three pay day month, so that means no benny deductions on my last check. Yayyy!!!.

Looks like I may be letting the gym membership go, for now. I just can't get over there any more and I really need the money for other things. My car is not going to hold out forever and I'd like to be ready for the day it does.

Mom recently sold her house and moved in to a retirement condo (private living, but they take care of the snow and lawns etc..). She has her own place and comes and goes as she wishes, but its still a sign of things I'm not ready to deal with. I'm not ready for a my mom to be "old". I still want to see her as the active, tough old bird who raised my brother and me. Its hard for me to face it. I've already lost my father, I'm not ready for the day I may loose my mother. We aren't as close as I'd like and we a so different on somethings we are alike, but she is my mother.

And with all that going on I know I can't really ask her to help me out much. I've already asked her for too much as it is. So now I've really got to watch it.

I never realized until now, that while we didn't have all the extra niceties some of my friends had, that havening parents who didn't believe in credit, other than for short terms such as paying for the gas (we were farmers and bought in huge bulk) once a month, or large purchases like a house. If they couldn't afford to pay outright, they didn't buy it. I never understood how smart that was, until now. I can't say I've always been that smart, I've got more debt (a lot of it medical),but looking around me they were genius. My mom is set and won't have to worry, while others her age are quite scared.

I wish I was as smart as my dad.

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.
