Do they really think I am that stupid

First of all do spammers really think most of us are stupid enough to read emails with subjects like

*** SPAM *** Diazepams_Get Ativan_mulch
*** SPAM *** tfee crsckery d qodaum ab ypx
*** SPAM *** adfit arrnaceous iz

I mean do people actually read and actually send money to these morons. Somebody must, otherwise why would they keep sending them to me.

Secondly thanks to those who responded to yesterday's entry in my guestbook. Being 10, Warren does have friends but they are also busy so they just dont' seem to do as much together as I would like. He is able to be at the pool by himself, but prefers to go with someone else. I know he needs someone to play with and I love spending time with him, but sometimes I have brief periods where I just don't want to be mom for a while. I still love my son everybit as much, but being a single parent, with a RB for an ex means I don't get a break. The only breaks I get are when I work weekends and C* takes him to Casselton. That didn't work last weekend. His problem is that when I am with him sometimes I am less than eager and thrilled. Also he is getting to the age where he is starting to tipoe back on that tightrope between needing and wanting his mom, and not needing and wanting to be with his mom. I don't want to look back in a few short years when he is a teenager and has his own busy life and regret all the time I wasn't with him, but at the same time I sometimes feel trapped. I need my mommy time, and I need grown up time. I love my son, but as a 33 year old woman I also need to have time with adults only. The last time I went somewhere with out my son, that wasn't work it was to run to the Cenex up the street.

As to the meds, most of you know that my son has some issues (mental health wise) and is on regular daily meds. He is ten and is very smart. He knows what the meds are and what they are for. He is also aware of some of the side effects. While he is a good kid most of the time, he is also a kid. A sometimes very oppositional kid. When he was a preschooler he would take most anything with out question. Now however he questions everything. Which is both good and bad. In order to get him to do as I want I sometimes feel like Monty Hall, playing a never ending game of "Let's make a deal".

I'm running out of excuses for not showering and getting busy with the 500 things on my to do list today, so I guess that means I have to actually start doing some of them. Laters...

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.
