Birthday!

Happy Birthday to me! It's been a great birthday so far. Yes, it is only 8 am and most of the people I know are not even going to consider waking up for another four hours, unless they had to go to work. So Jake is the only one who has wished me happy birthday yet (not including the facebook people.) I went birthday shopping for myself yesterday. I like to shop for myself and Jake knows that so he just says, "go crazy Jenn" and shopping is kind of a present by itself. And tonight I get to go see Cute is What we Aim For with Erin, and I am very excited to see them for the first time. Yay! And Thursday night I am having a birthday party at my parents house, where I get to spend a bunch of time with all of my favorite people! And people I haven't seen in months (that really needs to stop happening Nichole!) So once again it seems I get a birthday week not just a day. I am such a lucky girl!

Finally leaving!

My mini family and I are finally leaving Sun Village! Our lease goes up on August 7th and we get to leave before then. We are moving to a 55+ community called La Terraza. We get to move into this apartment because it's against the law to say a type of person can live in one place and that's it so they set aside a few units for people under 55 years old. We're just very under 55. Hopefully they wont hate us but it should be ok because we are quiet people and other quiet people around us is going to be so awesome. It is located very close to Coors and I-40 and will really only add ten more minutes to our drive into central Abq. We are actually moving closer to a few of our friends and my parents so that is going to be great. The building itself is only a year old, pretty much brand new. No one has lived in the unit that we are going to live in. All of the appliances are brand new. Washer and drier inside the apartment, more space than what we have now, an out door balcony, three linen closets (which we have none of.), storage on the patio for Christmas junk and stuff we don't need all of the time, and a huge bathroom! The price is great, only ten dollars more than what we are paying now for our shitty place. We are going to start moving on the 30th. Yes, that's June 30th. We get to move in at a very leisurely pace and we aren't going to be paying for two separate places because they were having a special deal. July is free! Awesome.
Of course no place is perfect, there is a draw back. No pool. There is one just down Coors and it's nice I've been there before. It does cost some money but oh well, and there is a hot tub but they have a sign that says no diapers. I'm sure taking her diaper off and letting her swim without one is not what the sign has in mind. so we'll have to deal without.
This place is all Jake and I can think about! I can not wait to start moving! I personally like moving. You downsize, everything gets so clean and reorganized. And it's oddly therapeutic. We need boxes, though. If you have any it would be awesome if we could use some. We'll give them back if you need them. Also I knew we were making a mistake by not have a truck driving friend around for moving. Cavaliers, focus', yaris', and all of those other tiny cars are useless for moving.
I think I managed to remember all of the details correctly. I hope I didn't leave anything out.

I'm obviously way to lazy.

I am obviously way to lazy to actually sit down and write down my thoughts in a cohesive intelligent blog. I'll leave that up to other way smarter persons! So for now I will stick to lame, but pleasing to the eye, photo blogs to sum up my life.Nicole and Jeremy. Aww. How cute.

Rachel. Flying solo. She looks ok with it though.

Aww. Another cute couple. Are you puking yet?

My poor camera, Delila, was stolen and she saw some weird things.

Leif always looks at me like that.

The girls. We had to do a group thing because we all looked pretty.

And this is my wife Nicole.
So, folks that was my Tuesday night! Thanks for tuning in.

World's dumbest day.

Well, if you don't know already, I hate weed. It's dumb. I hate it in movies, I hate the way it smells, I hate the way people look when they smoke it, I hate everything about it. So of course I hate this day when people usually smoke it more than any other day simply because of the date. How did the numbers 4 and 20 become so linked to getting high? Any way. I was telling my sister in law about my hatred for this day and she suggested I turn it into something different. Like on the day everyone gets baked I should just bake a bunch of stuff (cakes, muffins, cookies, etc.). Unfortunately I am to tired to do this but still a funny idea. It would definitely give me something to take my mind off of what everyone else is doing and solve the problem for all of the stoned people. "What should I eat? I've never been so hungry in my entire life!!" Then they would open their wonderful package of munchies from me (the munchies are in a package because I definitely don't want to hand deliver it.) Funny idea even though I'm not going to do it. Instead I've unintentionally started a back to the future marathon that is until Nicole and Rachel show up to save me from boredom. I wonder if they will smell like pot. I might have to kick them out if so. Knock on wood.
Stay clean kids.

My latest sidewalk-chalk masterpiece.

Elmo, obviously.

She loved him!! Who wouldn't? My goodness, I am good!

My turn.

First Chole has a bunch of shows she wants to see out of state now me. The Starting Line is in Texas this week. Not terribly far away, but just far enough. I always wanted to see them! I had the chance three years ago and my genius partner in crime and I said, "Naaa, let's be way cooler and go steal a stop sign." Huge mistake, time with that person and not going and meeting Jake for the first time. I made terrible choices. Does anyone have an idea how to go to Texas for free. Of course I do know Texas is such a terrible place but I would put up with it for The Starting Line any day. Especially since I am way more of a fan of them now then I used to be! I want to go!! I want to see that great funny looking singer with the amazing voice! Sigh...

Zoo Trip 2008

Lindsay at Subway before the zoo.

On our way to the zoo! Yay!

A cool bird that was getting walked around. Not a baby. Full grown, cute huh?

Lindsay watching the kangaroos sleep.

She ran away so her other parents went and got her.

Lindsay on the kamono dragon.
Jake and the 'keep out house'. Silly.
Jake and the elephants. The girls and boys had to be seperated.
If you saw the boy, you'd know why.


We were at the koala place and this was taken right before the trip was ruined. Lindsay got sick and has been sick ever since. The poor thing feels terrible! Hopefully she will get better soon.
But before that the zoo was awesome.

Spring time fun.


I made a chalk master peice.


Lindsay walked around with Piglet .


Lindsay walked all over my master peices. Meany.


Lindsay was depositing her dollars from Easter.


Dollars make piggy happy!


And this is what Jake did. To be fair, he was writing a paper for most of the time. Then playing World of a bunch of losers.

Hope spring is treating you well. Yay claritin!!!

Damn that sucks.

So, there's this show on TLC (have I ever mentioned my unnatural hatred for the letters T-L-C? No. Most likely I haven't, because that is a very long story. And a bad story at that). So this show, it's called John and Kate Plus Eight. And if you haven't guessed it's about these two poor souls who got pregnant and had twins times three. I think its called octuplet's, well, I don't think it's called octuplet's. I know it is. I went to dictionary.com. Anyway, Not only can I not imagine pushing seven more kids out of my who-ha right after going through the hell of birthing one, but everyday of life after would just totally and completely suck! Unless if you do what this John and Kate did and make a reality tv show to show everyone your terrible life. Talk about a horror show! Poor devils. In case you were wondering, I've never watched this show. I only just saw an ad for a new episode. That's such a bad idea for a show. Yes, it would remind me that I don't have it so bad but I would be scared of it happening to me. I'd have night mares. For real. Nightmares. Scary, scary, nightmares. Moral of the story, DON'T have sex. You will end up having octuplet's. So much worse than an STD. I guess go for it, though. If you are into that whole torture thing. Dirty masochists!
P.S. Is 8:55pm too late to make tacos?

Chole's 22



There were finger traps there. And for once I missed many moments when I had my camera right next to me. I think I was discouraged by Nichole's dad and his really great camera! And great pictures.


Surprise!


She looks happy, right?


Happy Birthday Nichole! LOVE YOU!

Bowling is Great.

Chole and I went bowling.

Much fun was had by all.

I did pretty good, don't you think?

Chole in the dark. She liked this one.

Me and my new hat.

I love her!

Second game, not so much. Chole did better, and I did worse.
Still a very fun night!!!

Snowball fight!

Pretty snow! Dead tree branches look so much better with snow covering it!

The first group that did the snow ball fight. It got much bigger.

Chole, Dom, and me!! So fun!

Mean old Kate hit poor old Chole with a snowball.

Dom. We were trying to hit him with a snowball. No luck. He's such a tiny target.

What do you think a photographer would be more concerned about, their camera getting wet or capturing a moment? I think a real photographer will do anything for the possibility of an amazing picture. Even risk their camera. I did, so obviously I think that is what a real photographer would do. What do you think, Chole?? You will have an opinion. Or anyone else for that matter.

I would love to sleep right now.

I am tired, I should go to bed since I am going to be cleaning all day tomorrow, but I just can't keep my mind from going wild every single time I close my eyes. "Did so-and-so reply to me on stupid facebook?" "Why does Jake drool so much?" "Is there a chore that I needed to do that I forgot to put on my list?" "Cleaning all day is going to suck and it probably wont even look that great when I'm done." "At least it'll be cleaner than Dan's house." "I should never host a party ever again, they stress me out." "Should I make a mix cd to play during Lindsay's party." " Mix cd? How 90's is that!" And so on. Except in doesn't end for a long time. I usually take an hour to fall asleep. 30 minutes of Jake cuddling me, he falls asleep right away and the drooling begins. And then another 30 minutes of so many stupid thoughts.
I want to go back to London. I miss it. Leaving the country sounds nice.

My day.

Lindsay is crazy. She is putting a diaper on a donkey.

Today was my grandma's 84 birthday. We went out to eat. Yummy.

We went to the snow play area on Sandia and we had fun until Jake said, "Jenny, where is my ring?" He lost his wedding ring on the hill in a bunch of snow. Some body break out the metal detector! Oh, and I was frozen. I was smart enough to wear my chucks and forgot to change shoes when I had the chance. I remembered keeping Lindsay warm but forgot about my poor toes. Oh and when I took Linny down the hill I face planted her. Oops.

Obviously this photo of Jake was taken before he realized what he lost.


I had a whole huge paragraph at the top about a dumb idea of mine. I chopped it. I re-read it and said, "I really am dumb." I wish I knew how to write well. I don't. I can paint, I'm creative, I can act well, and I know to snap a pretty picture (but I'm no Chole). I can not write, I am not articulate without a script, I can't roller blade/ roller skate (that is not really important just something I always wished I could do a tiny bit). I wonder what it would be like to be really good at all of the other things I am bad at. You know how they say people are either right or left brained (I don't know which is which). What would it be like to switch brain sides?

Jackie O. was gorgeous. Is she still alive?

This is a weird blog. I should cut it off before it gets weirder. Done. Anyone else read this stuff except for Nichole? No, thought not.

Bummer.

I'm not that smart. It's okay I've accepted it. Recently. But it's pretty much fact. I'll work on it, though. Slowly but surely I might get smarter. Fingers crossed. Damn him for bringing it to my attention so easily, and he doesn't even know he did it. Damn him for being him. See, not so smart. I don't even know who or what I am talking about, so don't ask.
And who gets on the computer in the middle of the night to write a pointless blog sure to be seen by only one person. Goodnight my loyal reader. You're great Chole. (I'll explain later).

P.S. Thank god this new Mozilla comes with spell check, huh?
