Back, but not in black

Tis not exactly a beautiful day in the neighborhood. I live in North Dakota. Thursday was above 80, Friday didn't even make it to 60. Today it is in the 50's and breezy. Tommorrow it is supposed to rain.

But I am feeling much better than I was a couple of weeks ago. I think all the stress of the past year just finally boiled over. The day before I lost it, was also the day I rec'd the copy of my Cousin David's obituary in the mail. I think that was just the final straw. Amazing how much you can be affected by the death of someone you haven't seen in over 20 years.

Warren is still in Mandan, for his eval. We aren't sure where things are going from here. Hopefully we will be able to go down and see him for his birthday. (my baby-boy will be 16 YEARS OLD on June 20th.). It seems like he's grown up so fast, except for those times when I wished he would grow up and it felt like he'd be little forever. Now he'll be elible to vote for the next president.

Today is errand day. I've got beans cooking inthe crockpot as today seems like soup weather. Since the local store is having a great sale on strawberries I feel the need to bake up an Angel food cake (mix, no scratch, too much trouble with all those egg whites). I also need to get some good mud/clay as my face is breaking out. (works way better than any chemical face product and no break out or reaction). I've got a few other things to do to, but no rushing no hurry. Just a lazy myself day.

I'm not going to think about money, Warren, or any other negative thing. I need to get some positivity back in my life.

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.
