Warren is back in school. I talked to Michelle from Partnerships the other night, and she is familiar with Warren and helped me go to bat for him. We had another meeting at school with the principal, superintendent, his BASE teacher and Michelle. Warren did 2000% better today. I was a little worried as he had a minor melt down because he couldn't ride his bike to school today, but he got over it and moved on. Wonderful.

Hopefully he will start to learn that isn't anger that is a problem as all human's get anger, it is how you act and what you do when you are angry that is the problem. Cusing at authority figures is not the likliest way to make them hear your point. Though I do sympathize as there are times it is tempting. I am hoping this will also, and his Doctors agree with me, lead to more testing as I am convinced this is more than a behavior issue. There is a definate learning problem here. A child as bright as Warren, who is behind in reading is not normal development. This is a kid who uses 5 syllable words like gregarious and monosyllabic in sentences. A kid who was rolling over by a month, sitting up before 5 months, and walking at 9 mos, a kid who went from single words to complete sentences over night, or so it seemed, who could follow the story of Harry Potter when read to him by the age of 5. Not that I am biased or anything **wink wink**.

They are also going to help me, I hope, get things going so I can get IT out of the house again. Lately he has been playing the if I am really nice and play all sweetie, she won't make me leave game. AT least that is how it seems to me. After 10 years of broken promises and lies, lets just say trust is not exactly something I am willing to give him right now. I was only being nice, I have made it clear in everything but sky writing that it is OVER, DONE, FINITO.

If he weren't Warren's dad I would have absolutely nothing to do with him, but alas we are forced to deal with each other. Even when Warren finally grows up, he will be there. When and if Warren gets married, he will be there, graduates from College he will be there, Grandchildren, yup he will be there, for the rest of my life I will be forced to deal with a relationship, that had I not been "knocked up" would have been a memory many many moons ago, will be part of my life forever.

Remember this lesson boys and girls the next time some guy is leaning on you, and you think "its only sex". No its a process by which a new life may come to this planet. One that you are reponsible for, and that will be part of your life, forever. Ask yourself, do I want this person I am about to give my self to to possibly be part of my life, forever. Even if he isn't there, everytime I look at Warren I will see parts of Mike. A constant reminder of a very bad mistake. I have to live with that. (Note: Warren is NOT a mistake, having a relationship with his father on the other hand, dumbest thing I have ever done, we are talking red neck plus beer dumb here). And before you say Birth control, remember all forms, not counting abstinnce have only a 98-99% rate, Warren was that 1 in a 100. Actually he is one in a million, but that is another story.

I talked to the school just a bit ago, and he is having or rather did have a great day. Whew!! He'll be happy as he has been seriously looking foreward to trick or treating, sans the mother figure. "I am going alone this year". So I guess I get to be the candy passerouter. Just what I need to sit home, alone with a giant bowl of chocolate. I can feel the sugar shock already.

I am super frustrated with work, they moved all of our stuff over to Active Directory and in the process screwed up a couple of things. Some people lost their entire home directory, others like me, are no longer able to access any web site we might actually need to do our job. Want to read tf.n boards or cruise diaryland .. great.. want to look at something work related. fugitaboutit!!

If I am not back on tommorrow, Happy Haunting Everyone!!, Happy Samahain to those who celebrate that.

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.
