Is it Friday yet??
Yep, that’s how tired I am. I’m pretty sure that I’m sleep-typing this. Hmmm…I wonder if that’s actually possible? Ha. That could be interesting!
This week has been the week of all weeks. You know when you bite off more than you can chew? Oh, did I ever! The husband’s birthday is coming up this week. And it’s a big one. Usually my husband doesn’t want a big deal made out of his birthday. But I mean come on, how many times do you have milestone birthdays? Not very often. So we are celebratin’!
I also thought I’d make it a surprise, which when you live together, is a lot harder than I thought! Like tonight for instance. I had asked him for help finding a Photoshop plugin and had closed a couple of windows that had some top secret info on it. Then he tells me, he closed my notes app because he saw “Friday” (which is his birthday) and thought he probably shouldn’t see what else was written. Trying to keep other people quiet is hard enough, but I almost blew my own cover!
Even though this Friday is his birthday, usually Friday’s are poker night. He and a few of his buddies have been playing poker together every Friday for 10 years. I like games, but that’s some serious dedication. Just how serious you ask? Ok, you didn’t but trust me, you’ll love this. One of the guys moved to Edmonton a couple of years ago. So, instead of just seeing him when he’s in town. They Skype him in and then use a cellphone under a cup-hole in the table so only he can see his cards. It’s hilarious…..And kinda genius.
Because I bake so much, and we’d be on the next episode of “My 600lb life” if we ate it all, I send a lot of it with him to poker for the guys to eat. On the rare chance I don’t have anything to give them, my fallback is Chex Mix. I made a batch of it on a whim one day, and we’ve been addicted ever since. But be careful, once you start eating it, it may be hard to stop!
