My (potential) new coworker/supervisor is already showing a bit of a flaky side. Not hearing back all week, I took it up to call and find out about the job. Turns out that Flakey, the person who interviewed me, and who I would be working side by side with, didn't mention that the same week she promised to make a decision about hiring and would definately let me know, she had also made plans to take off to Las Vegas and get married. According to the person covering for her in the office she isn't eloping as they had been planning this and she has been gone most of the week. No one has been hired yet, but she will be back in the office on Monday. Sheesh!! Believe it or not I still want the job. Even considering, it will still be lightyears better than Vitamin Hell.

I also got bit by the spring fever bug today. Its the first 50+ day of the year. This being ND, that means people have started wearing shorts, taking off their coats, and I even smelled some bbq grills going as I walked home from the grocery store. The only draw back is that it is now a major mess out there. By the time I got home, my shoes, socks and pant legs were thouroughly saturated. I had to squish the last several blocks home. Its just my luck that it gets gorgeous when I have to work, and nasty when I have a weekend off.

I also nearly broke in to tears today, when I was reading about Elizabeth Smarts return. The thought of Warren being missing, I don't think my sanity would ever recover. I was thinking about how I would feel, and I couldn't even begin to imagine. I remember once when he was 5, and we were at the county fair. I turned around to pay for a hotdog, and in a flash he disappeared. I almost lost it. I just totally freaked out. Fortunately there were some good employees who immediately started looking, including a cop (in uniform). Luckily the police found him with in about 20 minutes. I didn't know wether to hug the stuffings out of him, or shake the hell out of him. I had never been so scared in my life. Needless to say, I became extremely over protective for qauite a long time after that. All I could think the whole time was that some wierdo could have my kid and be doing god knows what. The thought of never seeing him again, just totally paralyzed me. Warren was scared but non the worse for wear. According to him, I was the one who disappeared. The thought of feeling like that for days, weeks, months or in some cases (like Jacob Wetterling) for years. I don't know how they do it. I don't think I would have the strength to go on. I still get very uptight if he is late, or isn't in when he is supposed to be.

I'm not quite so panicky now, simply because at 5 feet and 142 pounds, he is a the kind of boy who would give any would be job a run for his money and then some, but it still gives me nightmares to think, he could have been one of the statistics. If you have a kid, do me a favor and go give them a big hug. Then say a prayer for all the kids who should be at home with their parents but aren't.

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.
