Oh Yeah!

The badminton season has finally begun up here on the mountain. Okay, we're a bit late starting off this year, but we've been busy. Anyhow, I won the first match 11-6. Woohoo! I love it when I win because I can't beat my husband at anything. Not scrabble. Definitely not tennis--I can't even get a point off him. He can always open jars that I can't open, like they're nothing. How irritating is that? The guys can lift an entire VW bug engine by himself, so what'cha gonna do. But somehow with badminton I can actually win. Sometimes. So today I will bask in the short lived glory of victory! Tommorow, though, I might need help getting the lid off the jam jar.


  1. Yay Heather! You go, girl! I'm pretty damn good at Scrabble and crossword puzzles and Dennis is always trying to best me at them. He's been doing well at Scrabble lately (I blame it on the luck of the draw).

    Anyhow, I bet he can't write like you.

  2. Okay, it's time you learn the secret to opening jars. I promise, once you learn it, you'll never have to ask for help again.

    Are you ready?

    hold the jar in your hand and tip it upside down. Firmly bang the side of the lid on the top of your counter. Rotate it, then bang the other side a couple of times. If you do it too hard, you'll break the jar, duh, but if you do it just right, the lid will effortlessly pop right off when you turn it. Um, make sure you turn it right side up before you take the lid off. LOL

  3. Aw, thanks Stella, but actually he's pretty good at that too. But I'm better at children's books. LOL!

    And Linda! That totally works! I am amazed. And glad to know the trick. Woohoo! I hate asking for help.
