13 reasons I am glad that I can blog

I have several random things to share today.

1. It is cold outside.
2. I want everyone to go and read this story. It is a hoot. Who say that?
3. Today when we left church at 1:00 it was 23 degrees. 23 DEGREES!!
4. We took Lucy and Rachel on a date last night and had so much fun. It was Adrian's idea. Thank you for such a great date!
5. It is colder than a freakin' deep freeze.
6. I still have Christmas decorations to put away. This is why I am a Grinch about Christmas.
7. I can't feel my fingers or toes because it is so stinking cold!! For crying out loud. I live in the south. I have a heat pump. They aren't really heat pumps, they are warmish pumps.
8. Harrison's team won their game yesterday!! Yes I said WON. And Harrison scored 7 points. One time he had this awesome fast break and he drove it down and bam boom swish baby.
9. Have I mentioned the cold? And listen it gets worse. Normally the snow passes our house to the north, yesterday it snowed south of us. UNFAIR!
10. I looked at fabric for the sassy apron swap yesterday. Why did I decide to do this? I am so bad at decision making! I didn't get any.
11. You know... it's cold!
12. My career as a sports photographer is not going so hot. I got some great shots of Harrison yesterday but the only way I could get then to be not blurry was to use the tv setting on the camera and then setting the shutter speed around 600. Of coarse it looks like they are playing in a cave. So maybe I will be able to use the photo editing software that I have on the computer (but can't find again) to lighten them. Or maybe I will try out picassa or flickr. Any ideas?
13. You will be grateful to know that I am not going to mention the weather again. Number 13 has to do with my slightly insane father deciding that what the 6 Hale children and their slightly deranged parents need is a vacation to Disney World. I told my children that we would never take them there, so to not ask. And they haven't. Well, surprise kiddoes, you are going to Disney, as the athletes are fond of saying.

Better thank Grandpa. Often. and with great feeling. Cause guys, this is taking a serious pile of moola!
