Thursday Thirteen, Ed. xxv

Thirteen Thoughts from InterstellarLass

1. If you’ve never received a home made Valentine’s card, you are missing out.

2. Colored file folders: 12 cents each; Glue Stick: $1.09; office scissors: free; Sharpie: $1.25; Making your wife burst into tears from the sheer sweetness of the sentiment: Priceless

3. Nick is now the self-proclaimed MacGyver of home made card-making.

4. We got to enjoy a nice quiet dinner last night, then stopped for coffee. It was a good date.

5. Can you say “Damn it’s cold outside?” Alright, all together now: “Damn it’s cold outside!

6. It was snowing this morning. Our fifth snow event in Texas this winter. This is unheard of people.

7. Today’s snow is just the baby dust in the air. It is not turning into eleventy billion feet of snow like in other places, so I’ll just shut up now.

8. Wrigley’s butt was especially offensive last night. She’s probably just upset that she didn’t get a Valentine. She got extra treats though. She was passed out right under my feet, and I had to sit with my shirt over my nose to avoid dying of toxic poisoning. For some reason Nick insisted he didn’t smell it. Hmmm…

9. The whole family is expected at Zed’s band concert tonight. I wonder if he’s nervous.

10. Tomorrow night is Zed’s last basketball game. We’re not sure if his coach is coming back due to his work schedule. Zed will be very bummed if he has to switch teams because this guy is a great coach and Zed really wants to play for him again.

11. Elle is going to her first slumber party tomorrow night. I hope that goes well. And that they don’t go to bed too late because she has to be at a soccer game at 7:45 am. That’s just wrong on all levels.

12. I have a whole list of doctor appts I need to make before my last day. I have a 30-day waiting period for benefits at my new job. I think that’s wrong, but what can you do.

13. Anyone know how to get a recording off of a DVR (not a Tivo)? One of our local news anchors did something that just has to be shared, and the video isn’t on the local news site.

14. *Bonus. Here ya go MommaK…a view of where I am.

  1. Hmmm. Now you have me curious. Can you post a picture of this awesomest card?

    I think you may have had more snowfalls (but probably not more snofall!) than we had here in Philly. That is just wrong as well.

    What kind of DVR do you have?

  2. Pictures? Where are the PICTURES of this card? We can’t very well crown him king of handmade cards without evidence, you know!

    I would like to participate in your Thursday Thirteen. I will read on and perhaps list mine as well.

  6. My sister once gave me a homemade Valentine. It had a picture on the front of a tree with hearts growing on it. When you opened the card inside was a basket filled with hearts that you could take out. I really loved that card.

  7. Joe took me to the real ocean for a Valentine gift after being in Cedar Key on the Gulf. I’m afraid to go home and see what we’ll find there…ice and snow! Things look different and nice over here!

  8. Aw, too cute on the home made card. Glad you had a nice V-day dinner. Elle and her first slumber party – too cute.
    Snow? Nah, gimme California any day.

  9. Sounds like you guys had a cute date. Excellent. I still can’t get over that you were robbed with your baby in your arms. I can’t imagine how much fear you must have been feeling, and thank god you were both all right. I bet you were super pissed about your favorite diaper bag. My friend Wood had a diaper bag that she really liked; it seems like it’s hard to find cool ones.

  10. I love homemade cards! Thankfully my daughter is very artistic and loves to do that kind of stuff.

  11. […] Me, Lass — InterstellarLass @ 11:16 pm Some of you asked for it, and I also had to correct my statement regarding Nick being the MacGyver of  home-made cardmaking. The correct phrase he used was that he […]
