She likes me!

September 30, 2007


 My dear mum thinks that Stacey and I’s comment patterns are crazy!  You almost have to read all of Stacey’s comments to understand the comments on my site and vice-versa.  Apparently that makes Trinity smile.  I’m happy!  I can easily see how it could annoy some people, but it sounds like Trinity actually gets a kick out of it!  How fun is she!

Thanks for the smile award, Trinity.  I’ve been enjoying your blog too.  Now that we’re all friends and such I think you should know some things.  Stacey is my bff and all but she does have issues, so please be warned. See the following:

1. She cares about people who need love.
2. She gives 150% of herself to every project she takes on.
3. She has a family that is not to be reckoned with.

 With that kind of support and good karma…she’ll keep your world spinning!!


Gotta hurry with this one!

September 30, 2007

UGH!  I almost missed this one!  A contest with a deadline of today!!!

 I’ve been lurkering around a few new blogs lately and one that I’ve been hovering around is So a Blonde Walks Into a Review.  It’s a fashion one.  Intimidating to me…the unfashion GGW.  But very interested all the same.  She is hosting a $100 shopping spree for some of  Katja’s stuff. (another person I’ve been lurking around).  Katja owns Skimbaco.  She is amazingly talented!

 Hurry and check it out…you’ve only got until 11:59pm EST!


How’s your roids?

September 30, 2007

Man, am I ever the over-achiever!

Some may know that I had Graves Disease that went hypo and has been all over the charts ever since.  The big kicker is that stress (good or bad) can really smack it out of wack.  I usually find myself so caught up in the stress that I forget the symptoms I’m supposed to be looking for until it gets REAL bad. 

Lately it’s been REAL bad.

Went and got my blood tested.  The nurse said, “If the results are way off then you’ll get a phone call tomorrow.  If it’s just a little off, then you’ll get something in the mail.”  I was praying like a mad woman that they called ’cause if this wasn’t my thyroid then I was going mental and I would hate to prove my sister-in-law right!



“Uhm…is this Jenny Beth?”

“If you’re selling me something, you better be calling from another country cause I’m going to kill you for using my middle name!”

“Okkkaaay.  Jenny?  This is Dr. Jones’ office calling about your lab results?”

“Ohhhhhhh…..hehehe….sorry about that.  I take it it’s bad.”

“Judging from this phone call I think you know that already.  The normal range is 0.34 – 4.82….Jenny, you are 34.40.  Are ya feeling it??”

Oh was I feeling it. 

So I got my new meds and should be feeling a bit better within a few weeks or so.  Man!  How did I get off track so bad?  I told my mum and she went Harry Carrey on me.  She gave me the whole, “I told you this and I told you that and I’m probably just spittin’ in the wind with you!!!”

I let her get it all out; promising to take my pills regularly.  The next day I went to visit her and she was still irritated with.  Apparently she had dreamt that night she was literately spitting in the wind.  All tuckered out, she was!

So what’s with the spitting in the wind?  Have no clue, but don’t you dare ask her about licking her calf! That’s a whole other weird “saying” passed down.  Every heard of ’em?


TT – Graduation Day

September 27, 2007




Who – Me, Hulkman, Famous Bro, Missy (English Springer Spaniel)
When – 1988
Where – Oklahoma
Why – Hulkman’s “graduation” day.  He had gone as far as he could in school and dearly wanted to graduate.  Talked with the school and he along with 700 kids donned their caps and gowns and bid farwell to high school.  He was one proud guy…..And so were we!

I’ve laid off the contests stuff for quite a while (due to my royal beating from The Gidge).  Well, I think it’s high time I step back into the ring.  There’s going to be a HUGE Carnival Giveaway  coming up in a few weeks and I need to train for this.  So here’s what I’m working on for now:

1.  Trinity is having a celebration week due to an anniversary, birthdays, etc.  How cool is she to host a giveaway to her readers in honor of this?  She has some amazing gifts to choose from…personally I would love to put my name in for the little pink and brown bag from Bangkok.  Looks exactly like one I used to have in India.

2. I can’t remember if I’ve mentioned one of my favorite giveaway sites yet so I’ll mention it here.  Rocks In My Dryer has a blog dedicated to just giveaways.  My VERY favorite reason why I like it is all I have to do is comment to enter.  No link backs.  No stand on your head to enter.  Just comment.  It seems like Shannon has a giveaway just about every day.  She tries to focus on Mom started businesses.

3.  I want to sign up for the Dyson giveaway at 5 minutes for mom, but there are already over 1,000 comments!  I don’t like those kind of odds, but if you’re up to it and haven’t signed up yet…you should try.  No really…you should!

Wordless Wednesday


In honor of my new shameless boyfriend.

WeeLittleSoul is my SIL whose talent is amazing!  She is allowing me to feature her shots on my Wordless Wednesdays.


Picture tag

September 25, 2007

I can always count on Stacey to hit tag me!  This is kinda cool except my camera won’t cooperate (grrrr!). 

I’m suppose to take a photo outside of the window I usually blog from (yes, yes…I shouldn’t end with from).  Weeeeelllll, that window is behind me, so I don’t get to look out of it while blogging (short attention span….I’d stare instead of type).  Even though my camera is acting like a 2 year old, I did find this photo:

I took this last spring while in the middle of a downpour.  If you look really hard, you can just make out an Ark in the background.

I want to tag Cat and Misty Dawn.  Cat, you’re looking for something to blog about…here ya go!  And Misty Dawn, like don’t you ever take photos??? (hee, hee…she is the photo queen!)
