I got a haircut on December 20th.  Here’s what it looked like!  As an aside, I’m wearing my glasses because when I got down to my last pair of contacts before needing to return to the eye doctor for a checkup, I tore a contact lens.  Augh!  Of course, I put off going to the eye doctor for several weeks, so I was stuck in my glasses in the interim.


It’s A Blanket…

…with sleeves!  I am perpetually cold.  Hubby saw this at Target and picked it up for me, partially as a joke but also because he knew I’d probably use it.  The children, who are experts at all things “As Seen on TV” kept telling me I needed one of these.  When I asked why, they looked at each other as if to say, “How could she not know this?”  Then they said in unison, “Because it’s a blanket…WITH SLEEVES!”

Hubby thinks Snuggie should use this photo in an ad.

I hate to admit it, but the thing is warm and the sleeves are useful.  I’m often so cold that I don’t want to poke my hand or arm out from underneath a warm blankie in order to touch/grab/hold/do something, and the sleeves solve that dilemma easily.

The school counselor at the boys’ school saw this photo of me in the Houston Chronicle and clipped it and sent it home with Peter.  I don’t get the Chronicle anymore, so I hadn’t seen this clipping.  I thought that was so nice of her!

October 10The Junior League cookbooks (are you sick of hearing about them yet?) went on sale to the general public for the first time on Saturday. We were so excited about our first “real” customer (we’ve already sold several hundred to sponsors and League members) that I asked to take a photo with her. Can you see how happy I am? LOL.

My birthdaySeptember 11th is, of course, a meaningful day for everyone. It’s also my birthday. Because I couldn’t really go out to dinner, I chose to go scrapbooking with friends last night. I ended up spending more time talking than scrapbooking!

My friend Stephanie took this photo of me to commemorate the occasion and to serve as my “self-portrait” for the day.
