Warren's class had their party today. The class had earned another pajama party for good behavior, most of the boys don't like to wear their pajamas to school, so he brought his blanket instead. Most of the kids brought little blankeys, but not my Warren. My Warren had to take the heavy, dark blue comforter from his bed. I had to roll it up like a sleeping bag, but he had fun. According to him however the party only lasted ten minutes. I have a sneaking suspicion it might have been a little longer than that. He got to take a Sprite to school and have popcorn and watching the movie. He had a wonderful day, so we are so happy.

Right now the cats are acting like spoiled little kids. I have three cats in three separate corners, all trying to be the center of my attention. Cats are so funny.

Tonight Warren also brought me a wonderful Christmas present that he bought with his points. I was so impressed to tears. Just when I think he is turning bratty, he goes and does something so sweet, what a darling. Its latern shapped and has Christmas greenery and coincidently Holly berries inside. Of course when he saw that Gramma and Uncle Milo's Christmas presents had arrived, he threw a fit, complete with begging pleading, guilt, threatening the works. He had to open his presents, the thought of waiting a couple weeks, to him apparently, was like asking him to wait untill next year. Poor kid. I finally hid the presentsin my room, but not very well. Hopefully, out of sight is truly out of mind. Looks like the presents won't be going under this years tree, till it is time to open them. Kids!!

I think I may be on an upsweep, moodwise. I actually cooked a real meal tonight. Not heated up some hamburger helper , or called the pizza guy. I actually cooked again. I made pork chops, creamy broccoli rice, and baked beans. Warren didnt' like the rice, but he said my pork chops were great. I blush. Lots of times he doesn't like my meat. Note to self, use meat tenderizer, brown on sides and bake in oven till fully cooked. He loved them. They were excellent. Not much leftovers, the cats were giving us the guilty begging eyes, so they got the last few bites. They are soo spoiled.

Ignore the error messages at the bottom of my page for now, especially if you are a reviewer. Apparently is having some kind of technical issues. It was working earlier today, and I havne't touched my code. <{> The vaccuum guy called today. They are putting the suck back in my vaccuum. Its going to cost over $40.00, that's a lot of suck. Oh well. I really need to clean. I mean really. The cheap psuedo vaccuum, just isn't working as well. Its more like a dust buster on a stick. Good for small messes, but not real cleaning.

Off to plan some Christmas shopping, and the comming weekend. I also need to do a favor for a friend in addition to secret santas at work. Wonder who got stuck with me. Hopefully they've noticed my preference for sci fi action adventur, SW and nice scents. Wish me luck.

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.
