Ok, been a little busy this week so Happy Valentine's Day and all that jazz. Let's play catch up.
VDay was nice. I got mushy cards (yes, I cried), candy and flowers at work. I don't think guys know just how much women like getting flowers at work--it rocks. I have no idea why it rocks but it does. We went out to dinner and the kids weren't TOO terrible and it was a great night.
The Girl got not one but two little stuffed animals from the Boyfriend (she gave him one and a small box of candy) and the next day he gave her a long stemmed red rose (smart boy). She doesn't talk incessantly about him, which I can't decide if that's good or bad, but they are still boyfriend/girlfriend.
My friend Donut said something so very sweet to me the other day and she probably doesn't even realize it because I didn't make a big deal out of it at the time. We were talking about her upcoming wedding and that I'm going to do a reading and she said it was because I was such a good friend and I have such a good marriage. sniff sniff, I'm verklempt.
I guess in the grand scheme of things I do, though I'd never really stopped and thought about it. The Hubs and I had a rough start, off and on dating, me going off to college and deciding I needed to date other people, getting back together, getting married (and whoever tells you the first year of marriage is the best is a fucking idiot) and having kids. This year marks 15 years of marriage for us and I can honestly say these last two-three have been the best.
The Hubs is starting the bathroom remodeling project this weekend. New sink, toilet, floor, paint, hardware. I can't wait to see the finished product. It's pretty much the only room, aside from our bathroom, that we haven't painted or done something to since we moved in the house a few years ago. The last owners sponge painted it blue with a celestial border, which was fine and fun for the kids but I'm ready for a new look. I might even get creative and post a picture when it's done. I know, you could care less ; )
I'm curious about one thing--(well, that's a lie I'm curious about myriad different things) but I'm curious as to why people have stopped commenting. Is it getting boring? Am I not entertaining you? As much as I write this for me, it's so cathartic and a throw back to the years that I kept a journal, I do like feedback.
Van update--I'm still into Van and now have another CD to listen to; I think it's a greatest hits version. The Smile You Smile--sexy, listen to it now. I smell your sweet perfume and even touch your finger tips....
Tonight I get to enjoy (and I use that term VERY loosely) a Girl Scout sleepover with the Girl's troop. Yeah me. We're sleeping in a Quonset hut--metal building, concrete floor, limited heat with six 4th graders going wild.
