  1. Had a great weekend in Dallas/Fort Worth, topped off by an intimate evening with George Strait and 106.000 of his other close friends : )

    1. Kimi

      Kimi

      Lucky you! I read that it was a record setting crowd. I hope you had fun.

      Thanks, Kimi. I did have a great time, even if King George didn't acknowledge my winking at him from the nose bleed section! : )

  2. My husband's new prayer: Please Lord keep my wife out of the Apple Store (I may grant him that wish -- at least until the iPhone 6 comes out!) : )

      Kimi

      I can't wait to see what it looks like! I'm due for a new phone.

      I' using similar prayer whenever my wife goes to down town. She always buy something.

      She's just doing her part to help the economy, michalien.

  3. Hey, anyone remember me? I've been busy with RL problems and pleasures (in unequal quantities) awhile. Missed you all : )

      Thanks everyone. Good to be back among friends.

  4. 90 degrees on Tuesday; mid-80s yesterday; 36 this morning. You gotta love this Texas weather (unless you're cold-natured like me!)

      I must agree. This morning it was rather warm I walked out the house with short sleeves, this evening when I left work I had to run to my car and find my coat 'cause I had on short sleeves. It dang cold in San Antonio.

      I'm jennifer. Loves cold much more the hot and sun. Right now, my room has wide open windows and the room temperature is 0 C. But I'm normally dressed. My fingers are only slightly cold. but I love it. my wife don't. :)

  5. After a 4-month hiatus decided to try the Sims again. Slowly reinstalling and I'm up to Pets with everything running smoothly. Cross your fingers for me!

      Thanks y'all. I've now added Supernatural into the mix and it's still running OK. I'm ecstatic about it.

  6. Got tickets to see one of my favorite classical guitarists in Fort Worth tonight, but I'm still too sick to go. I'd really been looking forward to this. : (

      That is so sad, I am sorry.

      I do hope that you feel better soon. Sorry you have to miss the concert though.

      Glad for you. Whenever Tommy Emmanuel is in my city, i always going to watch him. he's great.

  7. Beginning my third day by myself in Austin working with a creep of a client I do not like. If he hits on me again he's toast (metaphorically speaking; he's bigger than me).

      Uh, hope that he will stop it and that you will find a right solution for his behaving.

      jenniferw23

      I'm Home! All is right with the world. I think what bugged me most about that guy was that he obviously had no respect for women.

    4. Wolfenblu

      Wolfenblu

      Hate that! Sorry you had to deal with that kind of slime.

  8. Even though my job is mostly part time, mostly can be done at home, and my boss lets me sleep with him, I’d still rather not work. And I’m sure my boss would still let me sleep with him! : )

    1. michalien

      michalien

      LOL Jennifer. At least you have something - sleeping with.

    2. Nyxie

      Nyxie

      Your boss should feel lucky that you let him sleep with you!

    3. jenniferw23

      jenniferw23

      Technically I guess I'm unemployed since it's not like my "boss" pays me anything. There are benefits to working for your husband, though!!!

  9. Skin cancer deep but they got it all. Dr. fussed at me today as he removed stitches, saying “You CAN cover skin spots on your face with makeup, Jennifer, but DON’T!†:(

      I am so glad that the doctors got all the cancer! *hugs*

      Thanks everyone and Nellas I'm glad you seem to be getting yours under control.

      instantmagic

      Ah, Jenn.sounds like the dr. knows you well. Prayers for you and Nellas.

  10. Both eyes black, nose peeking out from bandages swollen & discolored from skin cancer surgery yesterday. If I dared go out, I can hear me saying: "I'm sure he's often tempted, but really officer, my husband does NOT beat me!"

      I once got two black eyes by accident. You feel like everyone is looking at you, the poor beaten woman. Hope you recover soon.

    3. jenniferw23

      jenniferw23

      Wow, I wish I were really as strong as you all think. Actually I range from fairly strong to a total wuss and you can usually find me around the bottom of that spectrum! But thanks for all the hugs and well wishes. Hugs right back to all of you.

    4. Wolfenblu

      Wolfenblu

      Really hope you get better and fast *hugs*

  11. Tending my flowers yesterday when I heard a car stop behind me. It didn't move so I turned around and there was a young guy hanging out the window taking pictures of me. I knew I was "hot" but thought it was because of the 100-degree temperature! Kind of creepy.

      ah, the flattering, yet creepy thang. Damn, now you just started another story in my head.

  12. Now have 50 followers on Tumblr. And it ONLY took me three months. At this rate, I'll have 53-54 by the end of the year. Maybe close to 100 by the turn of the century! Nah, probably not. : (

      I found and followed you Nirar.

      Send me a link and I'll follow anyone on this site. Mine is just a hodge-podge. Too many scenic pix from my backpacking trips for most women and too much girly stuff for most men! But I get a kick out of it.

      I would probably like it, but I don't do social media.

  13. First day of high school for my oldest today. I put a pix of us on Tumblr. I'm trying to smile and hold back my tears and he's like "Oh mom!"

      Next Tuesday will be the first day of school for my little guy, two others just going back to school. I will still cry. All my cousins are going to school this year so I can't watch them either lol.

      First day for Chay is the 9th, I am going to be so lost. No kids at home guess I will have to sim more if I don't get the job.

  14. Set a new personal best this morning on a 4 3/8 mile mileage-marked trail: 62:15. Not bad for a short-legged old lady who hasn't been able to jog since tearing a knee up backpacking.

    1. WolfMoon

      WolfMoon

      not bad at all.

    2. michalien

      You surely do much better then me. You can beat me always.

    3. jenniferw23

      jenniferw23

      Last time I went backpacking with the guys was too soon after surgery and I only lasted half of an 8-day trip. Working hard this time and gonna kick some male butt! Probably not all of them; definitely some of them!!

  15. Haven't forgotten you all. RL has been enough to keep me busy 24/7. Don't start any funny or sexy threads until I get back. : )

    1. Cloudwalker

      Cloudwalker

      ya, like that's gonna happen here.;)

      Pretty sure it's too late. :D

  16. In-laws coming. Wish I'd dispelled the myth years ago that I have a spotless house filled with home-baked goodies. To paraphrase the immortal words of Richard Nixon: "Jennifer is NOT a Cook!" Guess I will be temporarily, though. :(

    1. michalien

      michalien

      In-laws? Lucky you. I'm sure you'll make something nice. there are always cans and frozen food. ;-)

    2. jenniferw23

      jenniferw23

      When in-laws are over my house IS spotless and filled with home-made baked goods. That's just not its usual state and it's too late now to introduce them to the REAL me!

  17. Jumped a copperhead a couple of hours into my solo hike this morning. Startled us both, but we parted on friendly terms. Snakes don't frighten me like spiders do.

      I can ID all the poisonous and a lot of the non-poisonous snakes in my area (just call me Nature Girl). But ALL spiders are creepy to me (OK, call me Sissy Girl!), though I rarely kill one.

      Glad you are unbitten and not shaken up. I was chased by a vengeful Cottonmouth while fishing with my dad as a girl at Lake Georgetown. Scared the peas out of me and that fear has stuck with me.

    4. MysteryIslandKid

      MysteryIslandKid

      Yikes has no idea what a copper head or a cotton mouth is but they sound scary.

  18. Did an all-day hike yesterday. It was a little hot, but got to get ready for a week-long backpacking trip this fall.

    1. Cloudwalker

      Cloudwalker

      you getting sponsors? ;)

    2. jenniferw23

      jenniferw23

      I'd probably have to pay any sponsors. Last time the guys kicked my butt and I dropped out early. Hadn't been keeping in shape like I should have since major surgery, though.

  19. It's National Trails Day. About to take the kids out for a day of hiking. They'll forgive me one day for getting them up so early on a Saturday. Maybe. .

    1. Akeem

      Akeem

      Have fun! I am headed to the trails myself. With my horse.

    2. Kimi

      It's soggy and yucky out. I'll go to the gym instead. Have fun!

      happy trails to youuuuuuuu

  20. Deleted some things from my iPhone between games at a weekend soccer tournament. Forgot when I deleted all those bookmarks that it would delete it on all my electronics. Now I have no bookmarks for Sims 3 sites. :(

    1. michalien

      michalien

      Sorry to hear that.

    2. Nellas

      ack! I did that recently as well. It sucks!

    3. Rosewin

      Rosewin

      Well it just means you will have to discover a whole lot of new ones. >.< I used to make backups of my bookmarks.

  21. NYPD instructed that a woman going topless is not a violation of the law and not to arrest her. Wonder if I could get by with that here in North Central Texas?

      maybe your goverment my suggest the same law to my goverment. ;-)

    3. jenniferw23

      jenniferw23

      I may have skinny dipped a few times; and it's possible I shed my top twice at beaches in Spain; and maybe once I needed a truck to carry my beads at a festival in New Orleans; but that's only rumor and hardly anyone believes it.

      A couple of years before Ontario passed that law, a women’s volleyball team from the Netherlands (I think) was over for a tournament and decided to relax on one local beaches. They found it quite silly when a lifeguard rushed over to tell them to cover up.

  22. Finally caught up enough at work to take the summer off (though may take all summer to get caught up at The Asylum). So now that I'm back, make sure to be on your best behavior. Knowing how pure, sweet, and innocent I am you surely don't want to offend my maidenly sensitivity and make me blush! : )

    1. Kimi

      Kimi

      Lucky that you can take the summer off! I never ever do anything wrong, so this should be easy for me.

  23. Workload playing havoc with my Sims and Asylum time. Sorry I’ve been depriving everyone of my boundless reservoir of wit and wisdom. WHAT! No one’s noticed! It’s OK. I lied about the wit and wisdom anyway. I miss y’all, though. : (

  24. We spent the day in Fort Worth yesterday and I got to to the driving. That almost never happens! But, for the record, women get a bad rap as back seat drivers. My husband has no peers when it comes to that.

    1. Kivak

      Kivak

      I never say anything to Wolfie when she drives. She is as a good driver. She tells me to slow down but otherwise she says nothing either.

  25. Town not too awfully far from us leveled in a fertilizer plant explosion. We thought it was an earthquake. Whole town evacuated. Too early for a casualty count.
