The Thought That Counts

[Editor's Note: I had imagined a better post for today. But basking in the glory of the He Read/She Read premiere has been too much for me. Thanks to all who visited and offered their feedback.]

So the Middle-Aged Woman's combined birthday/anniversary gift showed up yesterday...


I think she likes it.


My birthday/anniversary gift still hasn't arrived...
[Another d*mn clerical error, no doubt.]

But no Cricuts were harmed touched in the taking of these photographs.

Take care.
[You KNOW I'm being careful...]

Is that a new printer?
MAW, you're a lucky gal!

Is that a new printer.
Oh, Dedene. Bless your non-crafty heart.

Middle Aged Woman said...

Just for that, Dedene and Pamela, I will make something very special for you with my new "printer." And he's right that his present hasn't arrived. I've been bad. Suggestions?

Jess said...

Yeah, I had to go look up what that was...awesome!! With all the scrap booking I hear about, that will be PERFECT!

I've heard MAW mention this Cricut thing before but I still have no idea what it is. I'm pretty sure you shouldn't touch it though.

It'll be hard for you and the wife to read a book a day to maintain daily posts!

Ladies: I'm glad you finally got it all worked out as to the identity of MAW's gift. I thought it was going to be a small, chirping insect. But when I saw the box, I knew it was either the worst case of overpackage I had ever seen - or I was wrong. I think there's some scientific rule that says the simpler explanation tends to be the right one.

Cap'n: You don't want to know. And I don't want to touch it. That's my story - and I'm sticking to it.

Mark: It would be hard - if we were to attempt it. MAW is the Unstoppable Reader. I would like to read more - but then I would have to stop doing something else. Sleeping, probably.

I love the way you two communicate!
And a hearty congratulations on the success of He Read/She Read! I am so glad I got to be a part of it and from the comments I've seen, everyone loves the concept and the execution! You are awesome!

For the record, I know what a Cricut is. That's why I said bless Dedene's non-crafty heart.
