First of all, what ever was in the pizza spice I used for last nights hotdish, it had some wierd effects on me. I had the most bizaare dream last night. Involving Warren, myself, Calthea, a Star Wars contest, and a bunch of plastic ducks on wheels. Yes it was everybit as wierd as it sounds. I don't remember all the details but I remember being in this room at C's house (where I have never ever been and thus had to make it up myself) where I was talking on the phone to someone I have no idea who, and I was geturing to C* while holding up this plastic rubber duck with wheels and trying to geture to her that we were going to race these ducks for some sort of Star Wars contest, for a room at Valley Con. Then she got a strange puzzled look on her face and left the room. I got off the phone and walked into this closet, which looks suspicously like my closet, except there was a grate (like a heating grate) near the floor, I looked thru the grate and there was this bedroom that was all SW stuff, and it was C's room, so Warren is behind me hitting me with this rubber bopping doll and I am talking to her thru this grate. Then I had to go P** so I woke up. Too weird. But there is a connection. If you have ever read the original SW novelization, you know the duck connection.

Warren is taking his bath again. The kid just had one last night before bed, but now he "feels dirty" again. Which would be a good thing, if the kid knew the difference between a bathtub and a swimming pool. I am tired of having to tread water everytime I need to visit the potty. Last night he even used my empty shower scrub bottle to spray water on my ceiling. Then he was bouncing off the walls until 2 am.

I am seriusly wondering if the doctors aren't right, in that he is definately starting to show the signs of being a BP, just like dear old mom. His moods have definately cyles, either it is a crappy day from the get go and everything will torque him off no matter what, adn don't even talk to him, or his is in such a good mood that everything is wonderful and no problem. Ocassionaly in between these he has "normal" days where he neither flys no burns. Lord I hope its not BP, raising a BP kid is hard enough, but trying to manage your own illness and your kids, well.. I would never wish that on anyone, ever!!! In a few years puberty will be here full and strong and this house will be a nightmare. UGH!!

I also started a mini forum on the Meetup site that is going around. There is a button on the bottom of my entries. FM D*Landers Please stop by and say something. I think it could be cool. Even if so far I only know of four of us. I know that all four of us, would be very at home at Barnes and Noble.

Warren is convinced he is the only kid on the planet who has not seen Kangaroo Jack yet. So guess where we are going today. It had damn well better be funny. I don't think I am up for a not funny comedy.

Speaking of red headed nine year old's. He has also become obsessed with the food pyramid of late, and his water intake. He is constantly checking to see how many serving of this or that he has had and aksing what counts for what. He is also counting (and measuring) every drink of water, juice and milk. Last night he kept going back and forth to the bathroom, drinking measuring cups of water, till he had drank a gallon. IN fact he had me help him count to measure how many cups were in a gallon so he could make sure he had that much. Needless to say, this lead to about 5000 potty trips during the night.

He has also become quite interested in supplements and such since I started working for **Large vitamin supplement health product company**, who competes with the likes of Puritan's Pride, and GNC, but isn't those two. As am employee I can buy things for cost, and I also get lots of freebies, if it has a crooked label or a small kink and they can't sell it. So far I have about $100 worth of stuff, and plus my purchased stuff and Warren's meds, and my meds, my kitchen cupboard looks like I raided a pharmacy.

Things I have learned Pregnelone, and Panothenic acid work great for mood and energy, Noni makes one go to toilet a lot, oat bran tastes like corragated cardboard, Samboucol tastes great, copper stinks, Lecithin has no taste, and brewers yeast actually can be added to hotdish with out ruining the taste. Powered vitamin supplements are yucky, and SeaRx doesn't work much for me.

I need to go and shower and dress. Later I will write about how to make shopping by phone a miserable experience for both you and the poor person who has to answer the call.

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.
