In honor of Valentine’s Day I decided to skip the crowded restaurants. I surprised my husband with dinner and a show at the Improv comedy club. They say that laughter is the best medicine and I felt it was time for some laughs as we still have some major communication problems and had a big, stupid, pointless blowup last night.
The show was good. Two opening acts and the headliner. All funny. But I learned one thing, don’t eat a full dinner at a comedy club. Stick to the cheese sticks and cocktails and you’ll be a-okay. On the plus side because I agreed to take a short survey I got 2 free tickets to another show. I’m hoping to use them to see A Pair of Nuts later this month.
Also, this weekend we got crafty. My husband and his friend bought some design your own Shrinky Dinks a couple weeks back. Guys being guys – I think their original plan was to use these to make lewd and suggestive pictures.
The friend stayed over Saturday night again so I insisted we make them. Weird thing? My husband never made these as a kid. He also had never baked cookies, made those makit and bakit sun-catcher things, or done a bunch of other stuff until recently. How do you have a childhood without this stuff?
Here’s the one that I made:
The ones he made:
That thing on the left? It’s supposed to be our dog. I’m not sure why it has blood-shot homicidal eyes, but I’m not letting it anywhere near me while I sleep. In fact, I’m keeping it in another room or possibly even melting it in the oven before it decides to use it’s deranged, evil powers against me.
This? The gorgeous peke that just won in the toy group at Westminster. Isn’t he lovely?
I hope everyone had an awesome, laugh filled Valentine’s.
