Another ride on the emotional escalator that is my life.

Back on the emotional roller coaster ride again. I went for a walk as I was a little to UP. I stopped at Barnes and NOble and did a speed read of Tatooine Ghost. I totally enjoyed it, even if I coudln't justify spending the money on it right now. Instead I bought a frozen lasagna and some garlic bread (and a few other things). Good thing I did.

Warren had an awesome day at PSJ. He got all his points and bonus in school. I am so proud of him. I knew there was a reason a little voice told me to buy his favorite soda at the Cenex today. And lasanga and garlic bread just happen to be a couple of his favorite foods. It is baking right now as we speak.

Now for the not so good part of the day. PATH, was denied by NDMA because they are still recomending out of home placement. (btw his EEG came back as totally normal for a nine year old boy --- WHEW). We aren't sure what we are looking at, as much of what is available is not appropriate. I refuse to put my son in place with teen age drug addicts and others who can teach him how to get into real trouble, and his councilor totally agrees with me. I am thinking that PATH (full, not respite) woul be the best way to go. He would be local, his father would not be such a part of his life, he would have stability and I would be able to see him regularly and he might even be able to go to the same school. I am really not keen on the idea of him going to the only available home for kids his age, as it is in Bismarck.

So we have decided to call a staffing meeting, as he has imporoved enough that they are thinking about trying some school as well. He did so well today, with bonus points and all it just makes it harder. Right now I just dont' know what I feel. I know its not all my fault, but the maternal instinct in me keeps wanting to say otherwise. Everytime I see happy kids and their parents I feel so jealous. I mean we aren't talking about tommorrow. We are looking at a month or more but still. He is such a smart boy, and he has the potential to be anything. I'm not just saying that because I am his mother either. Damn you MIKE!! I hate feeling so caught. I brought alot of this on myself. I guess it is up to me to fix it. No one else will.

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.
