Celebrations this week

This week marks my 3rd year of blogging. I know, hard to believe, isn't it? I've talked about so many different things since the first blog, but the main themes remain the same: my kids, my annoyance with government bureaucracy, Judaism and Israel, parenting, health, television, food, and opinions on everything else that crosses my path. There has been humor, annoyance (plenty of annoyance), whining, sobbing, worry, anger, and a lot of laughing as I've written each post. Sometimes I'm in a lousy mood for days, sometimes I'm so tired I have little to say, and sometimes I think I come up with strokes of pure genius. Ok, not that often, but sometimes. Gimme some leverage, please.

I've come up with an idea for a new blog that I'm going to be rolling out fairly soon. It should be entertaining and will give everyone a chance to participate in telling their story. Stay tuned as I bring this idea to life.

Lastly, the 14th birthday is this week. I know what the Boy is getting, because he's already gotten his present. He collects baseball cards and wanted a reference book for his collection. He is hoping his cards are worth a lot as he's been collecting for years now. He does love baseball cards, but now that he's older he's realized that certain brands are better buys, and have better value in the long run, so he's concentrating on Fleer and UpperDeck, with Upper Deck being his first choice.

I have NO clue what the girl is getting. She's got so much stuff already, she doesn't really NEED anything like clothes, although she loves them and would take anything offered to her because she's a fashionista. I found her a backpack for a bargain price that she'll use, and I bought a lot (but not all) school supplies back in July when we did our inaugural trip to WalMart.

Any ideas for inexpensive but cool gifts for a 14 year old girl with severe teenageitis would be appreciated.

And a small whinge: my freaking gum is bleeding again, and so sore. I am so sick of my mouth hurting and I've got 5 more weeks before I can get my crown installed. I'm living on tylenol because I was taking so much ibuprophan I was afraid I'd get kidney/liver damage. I even got some Orajel. I haven't bought that in, oh, 13 years. This sucks.

Congratulations on all birthdays. The new blog sounds interesting. I think you should get your daughter a very high-end laptop computer.
