Friday the 13th

So today is Friday the 13th. You know, ever since the class bully got chicken pox on that day way back when I was in the 3rd grade, I have never had an unlucky Friday the 13th. I'm hoping for a bit of fun today!

My day started as usual. Oversleeping, haha! I was up until 2 in the morning updating my resume and applying for jobs. I got a little carried away and stayed up much later than I'd planned. The boys missed the bus by about 10 minutes, but it wasn't a big deal since we live just a few miles from the school. We dropped them off with plenty of time for breakfast before the first bell.

Rob is heading to the doctor this morning. Nothing wrong, just a routine check up of his heart. Once that is done, I'm hoping we can get a couple of errands taken care of before the boys get home from school. They both had such a great time doing their Valentines last night after homework. Brandon's class is having a party, so I sent in cookies with him. Matthew's class may or may not have a party. The teacher sent home a classroom list YESTERDAY but with no instructions about sending treats. I'm sure no matter what goes on today, both boys will have a great time.

Hmmm. Maybe I can get them some goodies while I am out today and surprise them with their own Valentine's party tomorrow. I can pick up some red food coloring and make them red pancakes for breakfast. Better just get a box of coloring...we always have green pancakes on St. Patrick's day and it's just right around the corner. I will make them Valentines tonight after they are asleep and leave them each a little treat for when they wake up. They'll be so surprised!

I already gave Rob his Valentine. I got him a much needed new razor and his favorite Axe body spray. He was so happy! We've been getting him the generic plastic razors, but he needs to use the entire bag of them in one setting because his beard comes in so thick. Then he ends up nicking himself. NOT a good plan while taking Coumadin! So I invested the $7.00 for sharper, sturdier blades.

Lastly, please, please remember that this is CHD week and tomorrow is World Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Day. Please wear Red AND Blue...or purple to show your support. I know red is the "heart" color, but the symbol for heart defects is red and blue to represent the red and blue blood that mix in a heart baby's body.

I wondered what you had gotten Rob. I have to shopping for Darren shortly. I was thinking Axe spray too, and probably some candy (which he totally doesn't need!)

I hope Rob's check up goes ok today and that both boys end up having a party and having tons of fun.

Hey I found one really fun thing to do for pancakes is not only make them red but buy cool whip and dye it pink. Its good on pancakes, while its not syrup it is still yummy and the color really shows up well!

Have a wonderful Friday the 13th!
