Thirteen on Thursday

Thirteen Things about Jenny

1. Today my daughter has her six month recheck on her eye surgeryed eyes. Just last week, as she looked at me, kind off to the side as I was sitting next to her she told me that I was all blurry. yipes.

2. The geek in me filled in my 2006 calander with color coded entries. Different for each person. GEEK. But check back with me in May to see if I'm keeping up with it or if every single thing is scribbled in pell-mell in whatever color pen I can dig up.

3. We got firewood delivered two days ago and I am loving the wood stove smell on these cold and wet days.

4. The little girl on the Amazing Race sort of scares me.

5. I get those blogger comment words, those spam blocker things, well...I get them wrong enough to give a little cheer every time I get one right. And I KNOW it's just copying but it's copying gibberish and I have enough trouble with actual words.

6. My son cut his over the door basketball net in a fit of anger. It still would be fine with just the rim and backboard but because he did it out of anger I made him pay me the $15.00 it cost me to buy it. Too tough?

7. Blackbird inspired me to clean up the ole blogroll yesterday. I fixed links and used that delete button quite liberally. It was enjoyable.

8. That little hockey picture next to my comment line? That's my son's hockey team from last year (in the black). I'm crazy for Mites Hockey.

9. I already have my Christmas Cards but I still won't have them mailed out before the third week in December. Which is especially foolish because I'm one of those annoying people who always puts a picture of my kids in the card so that I can share their supercuteness with the world. And I already have the picture picked out. My middle name is Procrastinator.

10. I steadfastly refuse to have any formal portrait pictures done of the kids. Especially at those Picture People places in the mall. Or any photo place for that matter, but especially with the goofy props. Plus why take a chance and get a fakey smile/eyes half closed/mad face when I can get those on my own. I find if I let them take a goofy picture or two they fully cooperate with a good smile later on.

11. Except for school pictures. And this year the son's? It's awful. And he won't do the retake. At least I bought the cheapest package possible.

12. I just bought these and I love them. But while trying to find a good link I found that I could personalize my own Sharpies. And now I know what I want for Christmas. Keeping in line with number two...Geek.

13. I went to the card making class last week, totally against my better judgement. And I liked it.

Wow....I mean WOW! I love the new look. This is awesome Jenny:)

I'vebeen meaning to ask you like hockey?

We are getting firewood delivered this weekend and I can't wait to get the wood stove going again.

I already have my Christmas cards too. Ordered them via snapfish a few weeks ago. The picture did not turn out as well as I would have liked (too sharp) but I ordered 40 of them so they're going out!!

Here's my link:

Happy Thursday!!

Funny, I had the exact same problem with the 400 pictures I ordered from Snapfish...too sharp...I thought it was my camera, I should've known better.

You know, I like prohockey okay, but I could watch my son play for hours at a time.

I am a geek with calendars myself. I have 2 I keep updated on a regular basis! :)

My 13 is up!

Ahhh! Firewood! Love it.

You absolutely should have made him pay you for the basketball net thing. Kids need to learn that money doesn't grow on trees!

I haven't even thought about Christmas cards. Ugh. Mine will be in the mail after yours I'm sure. I think one year I even mailed them the day after Christmas.

I might have to get those Sharpies! Such prety colors!

My 13.
