Let’s Not Mention

Monday bike ride 002

I did end up finishing the stitched pillow in time for Valentine’s day. I am really happy with how it turned out.

Let’s not mention that it is a couple of inches short to fit the pillow.

Let’s not mention that even though it was my birthday too, that the man of the house didn’t even supply a card*

Let’s not mention that we ended up at the hospital on the morning with Caleb to get his leg x-rayed after excited trampoline jumping (thankfully nothing broken, just a minor crack that will heal in time, as will the $400 bill ).

* Glen has since realised that this can be very dangerous for one’s health and I think will be spending the rest of the year attempting to live it down.

Oh boy. You really didn't have a good day, did you? But the pillow cover looks really nice. And I hope your man will spoil you rotten for the rest of the year!

The pillow cover is very sweet. Poor Caleb and ouch to $400!

What an ace pillow cover! Glad to hear the leg will mend (the bill is just as ouchy as the leg!).

What is it with men forgetting things like that? It just doesn't enter on their radars...

Aww..poor Caleb. Hope he's feeling better!

Re your birthday..wait a couple years, til the kids are a little older...your dh won't have a CHANCE to forget it, when they are hounding him incessantly about all the details (Mostly, I think, so they don't miss out on an opportunity to eat cake, lol) My birthday is on a special holiday this Sat that trumps my birthday, so the kids are already plotting Sunday as a replacement. :p
