You know its time for new shoes when...

you're old one's apparently stink so bad, that your ten year old son decides he can't take it anymore, and you walk downstairs to discover he is washing your sandles out in the sink with dish soap to try and get rid of the obnoxious fumes eminating from the footwear, but instead of getting mad at him you are too busy laughing and coming up with a diary entry that is one very long run-on sentence.

I also wanted to thank the people who responded to yesterday's entry. I actually do have a crock pot. I used to use it quite bit. But it was my mom's and had seen more than its fair share of uses. I haven't seen it since the time I left a roast and some veggies in it, only to come home and find out that the thermometer had whacked or else it was left on to high, because my beautiful roast was toast. I have been thinking I maybe should invest in a new one, as I know they are now much better. Canned Chow Mein, pizza, mac and cheese and burgers may taste great, but they are not exactly the world's healthiest choices. Though I will admit I make one mean mother of a low fat slush burger. (That's a sloppy Joe to those of you not from Western North Dakota). And I know Warren loves those, because when I make them, he acts like he won the lottery. I wish I did have my crock pot, because I also have a super awesome augratin or scalloped (depending on how you make it) potato recipe that he also adores. OH and I'm not suprised by the fact that he may just be destined to be large. There are large men on both sides of the family. And I'm not over concerned, because he is also fairly active. He loves bike riding, swimming and going for walks (when mom comes with). I'm just concerned with what will happen when he gets older. I don't want to contribute to him having a heart attack at 40 because his cholesterol is in the millions from a life time of cheeseburgers and pizza.

I'm also curious, if you came across my site becaue of a banner, could you drop a note or sign my G*book or tag-board and let me know. I'm just wondering if I'm getting any more hits from my banners or not, because I'm the kind of person who likes to know these things.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to dig out some foot where for tommorrow as I'm not squishing to work in wet leather sandels.

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.
