Thanks for your good wishes. I WON!! . Not the big screen tv or the $1000 grand prize, but I am quite happy.

When they draw your name, they have you go up on stage and select and envelope from under the tree, what ever prize is in the envelop is what you won. I don't know what the other prizes are (except for the guy who won the fireproof document safe), but I am more than happy with my prize.

It was way more than I expected.

Meet my new coffee maker.

Mine is the fancy model with an additional separate heating plate and second carafe so you can really go to town on the coffee.

I love it. It is fully programable, has all sorts of bells and whistes and is just plain beyond cool. (click on the picture for full details)

When I saw a won a coffee maker I was thinking something along the lines of a very fancy Mr. Coffee. Holy Katsanjamer kids. This puppy is on steroids. The box itself was almost 3 feet long and weighed over 20 pounds.

Merry Christmas to me!!!

Now if only we can send some of that postivity to Warren. He made some stupid choices this weekend,but is once again getting yet another second chance. I wish he would get a clue about reality and get a clue just how many people care and worry about him.

I am on my way up to him later today. Wish me luck and safety. After 4 plus hours in the car with Heir SchiezaKopf (that's Mr. Shithead for those you don't speak German, not that I know more than a few words and phrases).

Hope everyone has a warm, safe and Merry holiday, whatever you choose to celebrate

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.
