Okay, Jack has his own place to talk to everybody now. And he has an email too. Same as his old one, I just hadn't recreated it yet. :-)

Just in case ...

You were wondering. Yes, that last update really was from Jack. :-)

I let him "sign-on" the other morning to post an update. He was playing with his tinkertoys in the morning and decided he needed to ask for more for the next gift-giving event, so I showed him where to type on the blog and where to click when he was done. Ta-da!

So, I need to set him up with his own name so when he posts, it says posted by him.

In other news, I hung some vases w/ roses on the last wall in the livingroom the other day. They look pretty cool. Trying something different since the opposite wall has the big mirror on it. The long wall has my framed comet print, a small mirror, and a big empty space. I think the mirror that was broken (and I recently had cut and sanded) will be going there. Eventually though, that would be the wall that I would put shelves in though.

Here are some pictures of the vases/flowers (1, 2, 3, 4). The neat thing is I can change what I put in the vases depending on the season or my mood. The beads in the bottom are pearlized and copper to go with the copper hangers and the copper I used for my curtain rod. I never thought of copper as an interior design metal (always more of a brushed silver or pewter type person), but I like it in here.

Time to read/update other sites/or go to bed. Happy (early) April Fool's Day!

Birthday Wish List

Okay, I am getting started early this year so I can actually tell people something useful when they ask me what I want for my birthday, lol. Also, I added some more pictures to "Trinkets."

Dana's List
Clinique Gift Certificate
Netflix Gift Subscription
Memory for my computer
DVD-RW/CD-RW drive for my computer
Hard drive for my computer

Of course, with all the computer related things, one might say "Why not just get a new computer?" but I don't want to have 3 computers at home. Right now, I have mine and the one from work. That's enough already! Jack uses mine, and I want to be able to use it more, so I need to update it.

I will keep working on the list to add some more normal things too. ;-)

I have moved almost all of my old photos into the new gallery. I am going to work through my old posts to change the links, but if you find a broken one, just click "Trinkets" instead. :-)

Sites are finally both moved. I think everything is done. Now comes the nitpicking and extras things to add that weren't there before.

And, of course, work is super busy. Oh, and there's the birthday party to plan. Gah! Everyone's been asking (not me) -

Birthday List:
Remote Control Motorcycle (No really, he asked for one, lol.)
JumpStart 3rd Grade (I think he would love to get this one. :))
Freddi Fish computer game (he's been playing it at the library)
Lion King 1 and 1/2 DVD
Monster's Inc DVD

*think think*

"Sorry!" board game
Cranium Cadoo
sneakers (size 1)
glitter glue pens

And please remember, I don't like violent toys or toys that promote violent role-playing. Thanks.

Time to get some more work done...
