Hahahaha! I just posted for the first time in over a month.

I always read, even if I don't always comment.


Funny I don't notice people not posting because of Google Reader.

Also the knife sharpener cracked me up. He better be on his best behavior!


Ski trips are always better spent in the bar. Or the lodge. Never on the mountain. That shit is hard on the knees.

I wake up every morning to a nice set of man hands - for some reason my hands swell at night. They're more normal by midmorning, but my rings still don't fit, because I've gained 15 pounds since I got the things. Oh well. Maybe someday I'll get the engagement ring resized. The wedding ring was bought from a street vendor in Key West, and can't possibly be resized...but maybe in 10 more years, my fingers will be fat enough to wear the one that's too big for my husband's skinny fingers?

Candy Crush Saga is all the rage around my workplace - I can't figure out how people are speeding by me either. I'm writing it off to luck, and not skill. And that level 64 or whatever it is SUCKS! It took me forever to get past it! So annoying! And yet I can't stop playing. Also, I spent Sunday evening and half of Monday impatiently waiting for people to JUST LOG IN ALREADY BECAUSE I FINALLY MADE IT PAST THAT LEVEL AND I NEED A TRAIN TICKET!!!! I think it's safe to say that I'm mildly obsessed too. Pet Rescue Saga is just as addictive, FYI. Puzzle Saga, however, is awesome, because I beat all the levels that they had. So, if you'd like to start playing that one and bring all your friends, they'd probably make new levels for me to play. :) God, I really need to get a life! One that doesn't involve Facebook games!

A knife sharpener? Well, ya know, I wouldn't object if someone bought me one, but I would immediately wonder about their sanity. Knife sharpeners just don't say Happy Birthday!


Oh yeah - that's a great drawing. And a great outfit. Looks like some girls have inherited some artistic talent from somewhere...


Enjoy the ski trip for me. I am a complete ski coward- lived in Colorado for nine years total and never went, not even once, preferring to be the person who fixes Irish coffees and grilled cheese sandwiches for those coming off the slopes.

This provides endless amusement for my daughter, who still lives there and learned to ski despite parents who never ever took her to the slopes while growing up.

I hope you have an amazing time. You deserve it. The views from the resort bars can be pretty good.


I love that Rich gave you a knife sharpener for your birthday. It's like he's DARING you. Also, happy birthday, if you're into that kind of thing.

I haven't been skiing since I was too young too drink; therefore, I did not enjoy it. I wouldn't worry too much about anyone hitting a tree, as I think it takes at least two seasons before you spend more time upright than you do struggling to stand up after falling on your ass. At least that was my experience.


I still read your posts! Re: your birthday gift... My husband is still a bit peeved at me because (in addition to a card and chocolate) I bought him a toaster. He said that when he opened it he thought, "What the F***!" Oops, guess I failed on that one. In all fairness, he once bought me a cookie jar as a gift. The hell?


Candy Crush is ruling my life right now. I'm stuck on level 35... you?


yes nothing says happy birthday like a knife sharpener...
don't worry lots of us read but don't comment.

I check you everyday for a new post. I like to know how you and your family are doing. Happy Belated Birthday, and enjoy that knife sharpener. My husband gave me a box of Valentine's candy for my birthday, which was January 5th. Along with a little book of cat poetry with the $5 Walgreen's tag still stuck to it. AWESOME!!!!


I'm still reading. I have some ski clothes, including kid stuff, if you need it. Just across town.


Hi! I read all the time, but I don't think I've ever commented.

A knife sharpener. That's pretty...swell, I guess?


A knife sharpener? I have known you for far less time than Rich and I know lots of things that would have been much better than a knife sharpener. I haven't even ever met you in person! I asked for a sewing machine, we'll see if I get it since my husband got laid off on Tuesday. I am really sorry he spent all of that money on my surprise party now. Gah! He is happy that he can farm full-time now, I am anxious and worried about how we will survive. I just hope it puts him in a better mood. I might have to go back to work.
I love it when you post and by the looks of things, a few more than 10 do too.


Please tell me you are coming to Utah to ski!

Nice post. I find out some thing far more difficult on unique blogs everyday. It's going to often be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice just a little some thing from their store. I'd prefer to make use of some with the content on my blog whether you don't mind. Natually I'll provide you with a link on your web weblog. Thanks for sharing.

When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each and every time a comment is added I get 4 emails using the exact same comment. Is there any way you're able to take away me from that service? Thanks!
