A DAY OFF!!!
i'm lucky i have a job where i can take a day off on occasion, even if i don't get paid. Mark called me at 5:45 and told me he had a flat tire, and was going to take the day off because he'd have to wait for his friend Ed (happy birthday Ed!) to get up and get a new tire. i decided to take a day off and take him, instead. also, steph is sick with a fever and bad chest congestion, so i'm gonna take her to the doctor.
You might be a redneck if the only time that you've ever tun a mile, you were being chased.
Pattern of the Day: Clearwater Rapids Shawl. this looks very pretty, but i don't know if i could find the yarn they recommend, and it would have to be a slubby substitute. very very pretty, nice work.
Steph had a nice valentine's date. he took her to a nice italian restaurant, and to see Princess Diaries 2, and bought her a dozen pink roses (who knows the meaning of pink roses?), a cute teddy bear, and a box of chocolates. i looked at her when she showed me the roses, and she said "what can i say, i'm a likeable person." makes me wonder, but i'll take her at her word for now. he walked in with her last night (how could i not hear, lol) but didn't stay long (like 3 minutes, lol). sounds like he's a nice guy, but i haven't met him yet. mark said he's polishing his shotgun, lol! he's so protective of all the kids, but i think it's funny and cute that he wants to take care of her as well as the boys, even though she's 19. major dad coming out in a man who doesn't have children of his own. funny part is we even talked about what would happen if i had a baby. i think that maybe, even though we've decided not to have children together, that sometimes he wishes otherwise. i do too, but i'm almost 39 now, and if we did, it wouldn't be for a while. i don't think i'm up to it, lol. this child would be much younger than the rest. (sean is 10 1/2 right now!) alas, tis not meant to be.
have a good day!!!
