Anyone wanting a smithfam.us blog, send a note over there.  That way wordpress  and/or  blogger won’t own your pictures/blog/life.  😉


Changing *again*

November 18, 2008

Okay.  So, here’s the deal.

WordPress is anti-8 too now.

JUST KIDDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Actually, John has decided it’s his civic duty to enter the blog world, too, and he wants to host his blog on our… um… whatever it is you host blogs off of. 

Seeing how he’s able to create things computer-wise, and being the supportive wifey I am, I’m henceforth going to be posting here.  (mrs.smith.smithfam.us)

I know, I know.  Changing my blog again.  And you just updated my address on your blogroll…

So sorry.  If it’s any consolation, the blog doesn’t actually look any different.

PS:  And if you’d like to have a smithfam.us blog, too, so that your blog won’t get deleted out from under you when blogger finds out you supported prop8, just send John a line.  🙂


New Funny Moment

Date Night!

November 15, 2008

Woot! 

We love date night.  Tonight we did something unusually adventurous… by our standards anyway.  Something I’ve been wanting to do for a long, long time.  ICE SKATING!  Yay!!!!!!!!!  We haven’t ever gone together, and John hasn’t gone since he was 18.  Aaaaaaaand…

We royally stunk.  (Hey, I never said I couldn’t insult us on my blog.) You won’t be seeing us in the next winter olympics, that’s for sure.  We did vastly improve (I like to think) as we continued to skate over that first hour, and it was lots of fun.  Not as easy as I remember it being when I was younger, but hey.  That’s growing up for you.  😛  Timid me, I even got to where I would spin around, skate backwards, and was (trying to) skate fast.  (Not all at once.)

Then, attempting my fastest run around the rink ever, I fell. 

“Wight on my pumkin head,” as Doodle would say.

I’m still not sure how it happened.  One moment I’m thinking, “Ooooh!  Look at me go!!!” and the next minute I’m slip-smack-CRACK, flat on my back.

It hurt.

Lots.

Way to end our date prematurely, and with such a bang.

Next time -and there will be a next time- I’m wearing one of those dorky helmets they have for the kids.  Ice is hard.


A new policy, fwiw.

November 15, 2008

Just want to make a note here for the benefit of a few recent would-be commentators.

Those who immediately jump into name-calling and (what I percieve as) personal attacks on myself or family, do not get those comments published here.  I respect your right to your opinion, and I will defend your right to express it — but I feel no inclination to let you do so on *my* blog. 

Again, let me be clear that I am happy to hear your opposing ideas/ideals/beliefs/opinions, and will gladly publish your RESPECTFUL comments.  If you insist on insulting us you can do it freely on your own blog, as has happened and will probably continue to happen so long as we’re vocal about religion & politics.

I love you anyway, but don’t expect me to be unreasonable.


Request

November 10, 2008

Hi folks –

Unfortunately, I had technical difficulties importing my bloglist from blogger.  Would those of you friends and family who don’t see your blog there to the right, kindly leave a comment so I can track you down again & haunt your blog in my free time? 

Thanks!!!!

As a side note, I really like wordpress – missing bloglist notwithstanding.  🙂  I LOVE how I can track & sort messages more easily, see interesting blog stats (up to 200+ hits Nov.3 – wow!), and add a million pictures at once.  Just thought I’d let you know how that panned out.  Maybe I should write Google a thank-you for giving me motivation to abandon ship.
