movies, TV and stitching

Yesterday was my birthday. I got a card and money from my in laws. Lots of facebook comments and a few txt messages. As for DH, well still nothing by bedtime. My own mom didn't remember to call me.
I fixed Mexican lasagna for my inlaws and boy was that good. I made it mild so it wouldn't bother them and it seemed to be a hit. I stitched for an hour on HAED QS Fragile Heart so I didn't take a pic.
Today I caught up on some laundry and watched all last week's episodes of Live with Regis and Kelly. I sure will miss it when Regis leaves. I have been a huge fan of his show around the time Kathie Lee had joined. When I went back to the work force in 2007 I had missed it. So when news of Regis leaving had hit the news, then I started DVRing it. Friday's episode was their 10th anniversary and showed all kinds of past episodes. Some I remembered and a few I had missed. But it left me with bittersweet tears. I know Kelly is staying on but it won't be the same without Regis. No telling how I will be on the last day he will be on.
So while watching them I pulled out Halloween Streamer by Little River. I then sat in my comfy chair and watched 2 movies , which I highly recommend. The first one was The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. The next movie was The Book of Eli. Both great movies.
Here is my progress on Halloween Streamer. I am hoping to finish it this month.
This week I will be stitching on HAED QS Fragile Heart.
I forgot to mention. When DH came home from work at 3, this afternoon, he had a birthday card and shrimp for me. I told him thank you and I appreciated it but yesterday was my birthday. He apologized. He knew it was my birthday and even told me Happy Birthday. But he said he didn't know what to get me. Well gee a card on my actual Birthday would have been nice.

Thanks for all of the comments, loved them all.

Sometimes they are just clueless. But what are we to do?
Your Halloween stitching is beautiful.
And since I gave up FB for Lent, I missed your birthday also. HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!

Sometimes our husbands need an adjustment! They all have their moments. I'm sorry his was on your birthday.

Men! The only reason why my birthday is noticed is because my DAUGHTER bugs both my DH and my two DS's. I guess that was your mistake, Shelleen, not having a girl! LOL

Happy birthday Shelleen. Sorry to hear about the forgetfulness. I've been there before. I hate it when people forget! *hugs*

Belated Happy Birthday, Shelleen! Well, as my sister always says, men are soooo dumb.

Happy Belated Birthday, Shelleen! Has DH remembered yet?

Could you share the Mexican Lasagna recipe?

Stitching looks great.

I agree... both those movies are really good.
