Thursday Thirteen #10

It's a very special edition of the Thursday Thirteen! When my Thursday Thirteen addiction began, we were staying at my parents' house for the night and I put one up on the blog before I went to bed. My dad left for work before I got up the next morning, but he left me a note, his very own Thursday Thirteen! So here it is, a Thursday Thirteen written by my dad, and I'm sharing it because tomorrow is my Poppyseed's birthday. Here we go:
Thirteen Things To Do: For Anyone
  1. Worship Often.
  2. Be careful going home.
  3. Kiss the baby.
  4. Exercise.
  5. Buy good food.
  6. Call often.
  7. Plan ahead.
  8. Love your friends and family.
  9. Take good care of yourself.
  10. Love your husband or wife.
  11. Make quiet time.
  12. Use your "Magic Bullet" machine. (OK this one cracks me up, I LOVE my Magic Bullet blender, and he recently got one too. I got it to make babyfood. My dad makes some pretty kick-ass margaritas. By the way, you can scroll down the left side of the page and you'll see a picture of it! )
  13. Drink grapefruit or other juice. (He lovvvvvvves his daily dose of grapefruit juice!
