Why Jen absolutely HATES April Fools Day

So, for those of you who are of a mischievious nature, this is a warning message. Don’t.Do.It. Yes, tomorrow is April Fools’ Day, you’re dying to try to pull something. Please don’t. I was once the inadvertant victim of a nasty AF prank that wasn’t even directed at me. It all happened 7 years ago…(hazy …

Magnetix Recall

These are some of A’s very favorite toys. If you have them, return them. I have to go hunt down all the pieces and get them the hell out of my house.

Thursday Thirteen–my playlist

Thirteen Things on my playlist 1. Ok, to start, I really don’t have a playlist, I’m not that cool. 2. Right now, I’m listening to Crazy Frog’s “Axel F” on continuous repeat. I promised A I’d play it for him, so now I’m listening to it over and over in exchange for me actually getting …

Always darkest before dawn

I’ve always had a problem with winter, with the short days and cold temperatures and the way it just goes on and on. Chicago winters are abysmal. Long and cold and never-ending. Colorado winters are considerably better. Not quite as long, not nearly as cold, and instead of never-ending, we have the random few days …

Oh, and an apology…

I really don’t have that kind of potty mouth. Just thought you should know. Ok, I have a little bit of that kind of potty mouth. But A doesn’t drop the F-Bomb yet, so we’re good. So far… Watch, J will drop it first; it’ll be his first recognizable word!

Angry

No, let’s make that rip-roaring pissed off. See, I’m a fairly mild-mannered person. I tend to live by “live and let live.” Things will anger me (see last election cycle and the whole anti-gay marriage thing, that really makes my blood boil), but I tend to leave it to yelling at the TV and stupid …

Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Random Things 1. The Curious George movie is adorable. Took the boys to see it this past weekend. I’d see it again. I’ve loved CG since I was a kid. I truly appreciate that the moviemakers didn’t screw with it, try to make it more adult. The sweetness and innocence of the story is …

Ms. Four-Eyes

I wear glasses. I’ve had a prescription for near-sightedness since I was, oh, 13 or so. Throughout school, I only wore them for seeing the blackboard, going to a movie, that sort of thing. Should have worn them for driving…shh…don’t tell. But my eyes got worse when I was in college and I went to …

How do you say you’re sorry?

I found out last night that my college roommate’s youngest brother died on Friday of leukemia. I knew he was sick, but last I heard he was in remission. Her family has really had a hard time of it in the last 10 years or so. Her mom died of adrenal cancer in 1997, she …
