Tonight's entry is going to be a short one. I have developed a major headache, most of which stems from going five rounds with a very stubborn boy, who still doesn't realize that his mother is even more stubborn.

It started with Mike's negative comments about Warren's meds, which of course opened the gates for Warren to start throwing a bratt attack super extreme about his meds.

He has been sleepy in school, so I am trying to get him to go to bed early, but he wants me to cut his meds back in half. Only instead of discussing it, he took the "You are going to ....or else I am...." approach.

He refused to go to bed, he refused to listen. He refused to get out of my face.

I had to either get away, or I would really loose it, as he was going out of his way to push my buttons.

In the process of my walking him back to his room, he tripped and smacked his head on his shelf.

By the time I Advil'd and ice packed him, he started talking about what was really bugging him.

Seems there is an open house tommorow at school (I just found out tonight, thank God I am off tommorrow. Why do they always plan these things in the day. Don't they realize what year this is? Not all moms can afford to be home all day, some of us are responsible for paying bills, and earning the bacon before we cook it)but he is scared he won't be able to be in it, because he hasn't finished his project. But once I got him to talk about it, he was so thrilled with all he could tell me. Of course I promised tobe there. Which should be interesting. At 9:40 I will be getting my teeth scrapped, and tortured. Then at 11:40 I get to go have the Optometrist in my face, to see how badly I need new glasses. Then eat a bite and go to the other side of town by 2:30 for Warren's open house. I also need to talk to Mrs. S, so that she knows Warren's concerns so he can indeed finish his project, as his time has been cut in half to work on it. Whew** But he was in much better and more talk about it, not have a break down fit about it mood. He was much happier when I promised to show up and bring camera and take pictures. (**NOTE TO SELF** DO NOT FORGET CAMERA, and REMEMBER IT IS SWIMMING LESSON DAY).

By the way, go check out my new Photo Album I started. I am too tired to make a layout and do my own site for it, so I cheated and just used Bravenet. Now if you'll excuse me, my bed is yelling for me..loudly.

PS, anyone who hasn't already done so, is strongly encouraged to sign my guest map. Look up under Contact for the link. PPPPLLLLLEEEEAAAASSSEEE. I'm a sucker for that kind of stuff. I want to know where all my readers are. If you don't want to say a city, a general geographical area is quite enough. Thanks and good night.

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.
