I added a new feature to my diary. Its in its infancy yet, so I could use some feedback. If you look in the links you will find a FAQ has been added. A lot of people have about pages and cast lists and so forth. I decided to combine everything and just add and FAQ. If something doesn't make sense or if you want my take on something check it out. If its not there, ask I may put it there.

Work today was sooo boring. I think I took 4 maybe 5 calls. All of them were rather easy. DownTown however, poor girl, got stuck on a call with and ESL client who had very limited English skills. Fortunately one of our senior techs happens to Hable Espanol. (with spelling appoligies, I dont' know how to make the appropriate accent marks).

After work today I picked up Warren, who promptly reminded me how nasty I was because I should have known they were sledding today adn I should have sent his snow pants etc... Apparently he was very upset at not being able to go and not being able to go outside. I also didn't leave him any pop money for snack time, so he had to drink "baby juice". What ever that is. So since he was starving, and I needed to get some groceries et all, and I know better than to enter the land of "crackhead bagboys" (aka Hornbachers) with a cranky and hungry child in tow, we stopped at Burger King. First he was upset cause I wouldn't buy a goblet. They were sold out of all but Frodo, and only had one left. Then he wanted a toy, but they didnt' have any rings left. Instead we wound up with and Orc..Oh well, maybe next time I can get a Gandolf or a Legolas. Warren's burger was a little to slimey, so that only made him crankier. I am not really fond of slimey burgers either. Mine was so so, but I have a feeling we won't be eating at BK for a while. Then it was off to the land of "crackhead bagboys". Things started out cool, but soon progressed to cranky vs. cranky situation. I'm not sure who was happier to be out of there. Warren I could tell was tired. (being hyper till midnight has that affect, when you have to get up early). He was also complaining that his legs hurt, from running up and down the stairs and in the gym. I had intended only to get eggs and bread and maybe a snack or two for Warren's lunch. Instead I wound up spending over $20. EEP. Then we came home.

Warren wanted to go cuddle up in bed right away. This is definately a sign that someone needs to get to sleep. So we cuddled up and watched, Rugrats, Kwanza special. He was still hungry so I made him a ham sandwich. Xena apparently thought he was supposed to share with her, so I got some scraps for her. Poor girl.. She loved it though.

I was worried about her, at first, but I think she is adjusting. It just seems to take a little longer. She is the newbie, and Chloe and Chester aren't used to sharing their territory. I am trying to acquaint them slowly, so they get used to each other. She loves Warren's pillow, or my tummy, with Chloe sleeping on the chair next to my bed, or right over my head and Chester at the foot, there is very little room, when Warren sleeps with mommy. Right now Xena is watching me type this, if I try to pet her, she has to get up, and I get help with my typing. She also hasn't learned that butt smelling is only considered polite in feline cirlces. In human circles there is a definate EWWW factor she doesn't seem to get. The reason I say this, is she keeps wanting to sit or put her self with her rear in my face. Not good folks. I love her to pieces, but not THAT much. LOL.

Maybe tommorrow after work Warren will be in a much better mood, so I can do some other shoppping. I need to return and outfit adn to also get some hair color.

Xena tried to leave the bed, and Chloe went after her. Right now they are having a stare off, growling contest under the bed. Time to go play kitty referee. I also need to turn the heat up a bit. It is almost zero outside. BRRR..

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.
