Well I finally did it. I changed the layout of my diary. Granted its not a major change, but it is different none the less. The graphic above isnt' the greatest, but it took a long time and is my first attempt so humor me. If you happen to be one of the few people who doesnt' understand it then you need to go rent The Empire Strikes Back as well as the other three Star Wars films.

The new hair cut is definately a success. I have never had so many compliments in my life. Lovin it!! Lovin it all!! I didn't think it was that great, but if everyone else loves it, hey I'm gonna eat it up with a great big spoon..

Today after work it is Warren's back to school night. I can't believe that come Monday morning my little man will be a great big second grader. He is understandably nervous, though not as bad since he is a big kid now instead of a "first grade baby". I am crossing my fingers, toes and everything else that this year will be better than last year. It sure as hell cant' be any worse. Last year was the worst year in my life since '96 (the year my dad died). .

I made another forbarence (how ever you spell it?) payment on the mortgage today over the phone. I am still playing catch up, but with another payment once a month from here on out I should be totally caught up by November. Now that will be a Thanksgiving. Hopefully now with my raise I will be able to keep my checking account in black. (as long as I can keep my mania under control, it is what really gets me into trouble. stupidly badly wired brain). I even have enough after mortgage to pay something on my other bills. Its gonna be tight but for the first time in a long time I think I have a chance of being okay. I still have a ton of outstanding debts and a fine payment I have yet to make, but we may just squeak by. Hopefully since Mike has changed jobs YET, again, my Sept child support payment will be a full payment not just a partial one like August was. I would never be lucky enough to have another payment this month although maybe I should check my mail box..

I can't belive I was so spaced out at work today that I totally forgot to go to a meeting. *smacks head* UFDA! Hopefully my boss (the cute one:) ) will be understanding enough to know that I didnt' do it on purpose and let me go to the Friday morning one, as our call volume has been rather slow..

Right now for some reason I am so "up". I can't sit still for anything. I have been like this every afternoon now for almost a week. I feel fine in the morning but after lunch its like I feel the need to run a marathon or something. I get home and I am dead tired, yet my body is wired and my mind cant' concentrate on anything. Ugh do you know how wierd it is to be dead tired yet unable to stay still for anything.. Being bipolar really sucks sometimes.. I wish I could just have a normal mood change instead of always being so damn dramatic. When I am up I am *really really* up. And when I am down I am *really really* down. I dont' think I would recognize normal if I saw it..

Well its almost 5pm so by the time I get this wrapped up and finish everything else it will be time to go to Warrens school. Here's wishing for good things.

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.
