Project 52: Would You Rather?

This past Friday, we took a jaunt across the state to pick up our things that have been stored in our wonderful neighbor's house for the past year.  Yes, it has actually been a year since we left Port Huron and now, all our junk is back together, well, at least the junk we decided to keep.  I was tired, even though all I had done all day was ride in the truck, talk with a wonderful woman, and eat delicious Chinese food.  Needless to say, I did not have my most creative night of date.  This seems to be a theme for me.  I need to get off my tuckus and get to work on this whole date thing! 
This is what we ended up doing.  Joel went and got us some frozen coffee drinks from McDonald's which sadly to say are just as good as Starbucks. (That's sad because Starbucks is in the coffee business and McDonald's is supposed to be in the burger business. But it appears that neither of them do their job well. I did read once however that they are both just in the real estate business, meaning it's not their product but their location that draws people into their establishments.  I'm inclined to believe that.)
We played Would You Rather from Simply Modern Mom.  It was a fun night.  The best one was actually an impromptu response to a scenario that Joel pulled "jump out of a fast moving bus" and I said in response "spend a day stuck in a bus with Keanu Reeves"  HA!  If you haven't seen the movie, don't!

I'm off, I have a little girl with a headache that threw up last night and a cat that appears to be suffering from intestinal issues.  Currently, he's laying in the shower and she is laying in my bed.  It should be a fun day.

Our Daily Question from Ink & Willow

Did you ever have a book that you love so much because it's just right? That's Our Daily Question for me. It's a three-year journal to share with your significant other. How does that work? Well, each calendar date has a question and divided space to record your answer three times.  There is a great mix of fun, serious, thought-provoking, and heartfelt questions. Generally, the only ones that we've skipped over have been the ones that talk about all the time. It's been nice to be able to pick it up with morning coffee and have a conversation ready to go. Some we've even used at the dinner table to have family discussions.  It's a wonderful little keepsake, one that will have much more value when you finish with it than when you start. If you're looking for a special gift to give a newly married couple, yourself, or even a pair of love birds that have been married for over 20 years, this is a great choice.  I received a copy of this book from Ink & W

Project 52: Shiver me dufuses

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&#
