Its my 301rst entry -- WOW!!
I didn't even realize that my Friday Fives entry was my 300th entry. WoW. I have been writing alot in here. Too much to go down with out a fight. I'm still on the border line re: passwording. But if it turns out it isn't Stacy that is here I may have to. Julie says its not her, and I have no reason not to believe her. Stacy has the addy because I gave it to her. I know I can trust her, so that isn't a problem. If it were one of my other co-workers THEN it would be a problem.
Went swimming with Warren tonight and had a blast. His program was great, even if the idiot was there. After the program they had cookies and milk, and of course that meant sitting with Mike, who decided that even at Warren's school he was going to be a jerk. Gads what the hell did I ever see in that man.
Out of the mouth of babes various comments made by Warren that lead me to believe he is much smarter than any of us ever imagined.
"I don't like Justine when she hangs around those 'triangle heads'. She doesn't act like her self. When she is alone she is nice, but when she is with them she acts all different.....I would rather have 1 real friend than a 1000 fake friends.(the ...are a space where I had made a comment about people wanting to be liked)
"C'mon and go down the slide with me mom. You're too normal lately. You need to be crazy again. Don't be so normal all the time."
"It doesn't matter what my dad thinks" (When in response to his previous comment I said something about Mike thinking I am crazy enough for all of us"
(In response to my comment that I would miss him too much if he lived with his dad, and that I can barely stand to have him gone on the weekends)"Well how do you think my dad feels, he misses me too".
I also found out at my IEP meeting that my son is a superiour creative writer, who hates the physical writing part of writing. He can come up with stories that go on and on and on ( I knew that. My reading to him from GOOD books (as opposed to literary junk food) has a large part to do with that)but he hates actual writing, because he is such a perfectionist. A Y isn't good enough unless it looks exactly like the y's in the handwriting books. That is why his cursive is soo good, but it is soo much work. He also has a superior vocabulary and is finally starting to learn how to use his great background knowledge to figure out words (along with phonics) he doesn't know. He has a superior understanding of plots and characters. HE is also great at math and science. His weeknesses are social skills, frustration, perfectionism, agression and dealing with people in general. We also decided to next year recommend him for Mr. E's third grade class. We all agree a male teacher might be just the ticket. I think that would be great as he needs more positive male influence in his life.
In stead of regular summer school which he doesnt want, I may be sending him to a summer enrichment program which would be like a summer school kind of. This would be two sessions of science classes how ever with experiments and such. Right up his alley. Once we get his other problems (mainly his people skills and his inability to tolerate frustration) under control, this will take off like a 747 in school. He has the imagination to be a great writer, some of the stories he comes up with are just unbelievable.
Well its 1am, and time for me to decompress and go to sleep.

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.
