This date I pulled out a puzzle that I had bought for Joel years ago. I put up a little camp table, and even devised a system to keep the pieces in place with some fabric, so we could roll it up and stow it. I was all ready to go and then the reality of the puzzle set in and I realised, I don't like puzzles. I was already frustrated and worn out by the darn thing and we were only a mere few minutes into working on it! Instead of getting upset, we changed plans.
The puzzle was abandoned and Joel went out for a shamrock shake from McD's and two cherry pies. We played some MadLibs. The one we bought for Hannah today was Pirate themed and the story that was the funniest included a peg elbow and a pet pencil sitting on your shoulder saying "Shiver me dufuses!" We even had a joke book that we'd picked up for Hannah and read a couple of terrible jokes to one another while shuffling cards for cribbage.
A fun night full of laughter and green shakes. Well, I'm off to go find where I can get pencils imprinted for Joel's birthday!
