Gotcha! I know her name isn't Jennifer, and if you didn't know that, you don't know Jenny. I just wanted you all to know some of the super sweet things this fine lady has done for me over the past 9 years. (I would also like to note, that a lot of people have done really nice things to me throughout my lifetime, and perhaps someday, I will get to you. Just sit back and enjoy Jenny today. I know she has done great things for you too.)
*She gives me all her boy clothes. Even though she has younger boys, she has still passed on clothes to me. And I don't know if she knows this, but getting free kids clothes is my favorite thing. And she has cute clothes, to top it off.
*She is super fun to play games with, and I love being on her team. She is very smart and competitive, I remember playing spades all the time with Tom, Erin, and her. Tom and Erin cheated like crazy, which made it so much more rewarding when you won a hand against all odds. (You weren't cheating were you?)
*She is the one I always call when I need a babysitter, and she always said yes. She even took my kids for a few days so I could go on a trip with Hot Pants to New Orleans. And guess what she did while I was gone...she made my kids blankets, took them to home depot for a craft project, plus more. Violet didn't want to leave when we got back. And wouldn't stop talking about how she wanted Jenny to be her new mommy.
*She sent me flowers once. For no real reason. She just knew I was having a hard time. I don't think I even thanked her for them, but they meant a lot. (It is making me cry a little, so I am not going to talk about the flowers anymore.)
*She would always plan vacations. I would call her up and tell her I needed to go somewhere, and she would quickly plan a trip for me. I love that. We have also been to Disneyland many times together, and she would always get the hotel, plan activities, basically make every trip so easy. All I had to do was show up. (Do I owe you money for real? I probably do, just let me know how much, okay.)
*She would take me out on "official work business" every once in a while. And she would bring me candy, if we went to the movies. She knows how much I love candy.
*She has done so much more too. Listened to me complain a bazillion times... You know what is the best though? She does this kind of stuff for every one. And she can run 3 miles really fast.
This is it, so don't expect anything on your birthday.
