Just another boring as all get out Saturday at work. I did learn how to make and international call to Australia though if any one is intersted. Just dial 011-61-city code-number. It took me way to long to figure that out just to call back some teacher, who can't figure out what she should already know. I've emailed this woman earlier, but I guess teachers in Australia are like teachers in America. I've spent more time trying to help her with out actually talking to her, than I have on my other three calls today combined. And I still can't get thru to her.

Warren is here with me at work, as Mike is working all day to day too, so I get to spend more time with Warren. I am actually feeling smug about the fact that Warren is wanting to see his dad less and me more. I feel guilty about it, but at least he is comming to the conclusion on his own. I am still trying to make him spend at least sometime with Mike anyway. He is STILL Warrens dad, even if he is a world class jerk.

Earlier today, Warren and I brought his toy to the Bank for the presentation with the rest of the Cub Scouts. You can really tell who's parents helped and who's parents "Helped". If you know what I mean. I think Warrens' came out very nice. We painted it gold and then put two coats of clear varnish over it. I will post up the pics when I get home as both my USB cable and my software for the digicam are at my home PC. Right before the presentation Warren and I had a fight in the car. He was soo upset because he didn't think his car was good enough. I was already feeling short of temper, so instead of being patient helpful mommy, I lost my temper and turned in to semi-psycho mommy. But we made up and afterwards we went to pay the electric bill and then went to lunch at Subway.

Right now my normally hyperactive little boy has been sitting at the same computer for well over an hour playing Atomica . Its actually kind of an addictive game, that his teacher got him hooked on at school (Just what are they teaching second graders these days any way??) as a reward for good behavior. Oops spoke to soon, he just had a tiny meltdown about his scores, but it looks like all is okay again.

Now for an abrupt topic change. I decided to see what my Color Genics profile is. The colors I picked in order were black, gray, blue, orange, magenta, yellow, green, and red. Frankly I thought the profile they gave me, was just a little freaky. It is rather accurate, but it could apply to many people I suppose. Read it for your self and decide. Much of it is definately fitting me, at this moment.

Everyone feels despondent at times ... and you are no exception. You are feeling so depressed because it seems that everything that could go wrong has gone wrong and you don't quite know which way to turn. So like the proverbial ostrich - you are trying to bury your head in the sand ... But that won't work. You have to face reality .....

You are lazy ... You dream of a peaceful, calm, uncluttered and uncomplicated life. Your ideal would be to share a permanent base with some person or persons who would be able to demonstrate on-goinglove, peace and security.

In spite of the fact that you believe that your hopes and ideas are realistic, It is hard for you to accept that your needs and desires are misunderstood by almost everyone within your sphere of influence...and there is no-one to turn to or rely on. Your pent-up emotions and inherent egocentricity make you quick to take offence, but as matters stand you realise that you will have to make the best of things as they are.

All the distress and agitation is the result from attempting to avoid any form of stimulation or excitement. The situation in which you find yourself at this time is one of hostility and therefore you are under considerable pressure. You are very irritable and prone to angry outbursts. You are in a mental quandary and you could be experiencing physical problems..You are very distress by the apparent hostility of everyone around you .. and you feel coerced and subjected to intolerable pressures. You are resentful of what you regard as unreasonable demands on you but the situation is such that you feel powerless to control it and at this time you just don't know "which way to turn".

You are completely worn out.... physically and mentally ... and it has got to the stage where "You don't want to participate anymore".You are in fact experiencing what is known as "Burnout" and your reaction is such that you feel that everyone is against you ... But you still seem to refuse to listen to reason. You are hostile, bitter and indignant. You insist that you want and are entitled to your own way.. well maybe you are, but your attitude is not conducive to making friends ... Take it easy.. Let go and get back into the World.

I dont' agree with the lazy part, well maybe I am a little lazy, but I don't think I am quite as anti social as they say, I definately have the tendency, but I am not ready to apply for hermit status any time soon. (in The Church, their really is such a thing.

Last night, I was at Barnes and Noble with Calthea and Warren was being amazingly good. So good in fact, that he conned me into spending $30 I hadn't planned on to buy a Children's Atlas because, "its educational mom, I can use it for lots of things..." The kid knows me like a book. *Sigh. Sometimes I just love spoiling him, then I wonder why he is so spoiled sometimes. Silly Mommy.. Trix are for kids. Till next we meet..

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.
