May your day be more than just flowers and candy. May you spend it with people you love. I am spending this evening with my husband and kids. Daughter and Son are going to see Gnomeo and Juliet for an early matinee. I am not feeling well this afternoon. I am very tired and would like to go hide and take a nap somewhere.
This weekend, I finally did some baking. I made brownies on Saturday and yesterday I made Oreo Cheesecake. Hopefully we will eat it tonight and it will be yummy. We will see.
One of my favorite movie lines about Valentine's Day is from the movie Sex and the City. Miranda and Carrie are sitting in a restaurant lamenting over the holiday and Miranda says something like "Is it just me or is this Valentine's Day on steriods? To which Carrie replies, "We were just playing for the other team last year." Or something to that effect. My husband and I didn't get each other gifts. I made him cheesecake. I just the dishes to be done when I get home, but that probably won't happen. LOL.
This weekend was full of weirdness. Daughter and I had an argument. That doesn't happen often. She is feeling the winter blahs. I told her she could take my car and go where she wanted, but she didn't want to take my car. Sometimes she can be such a teenager...you know, irrational! Finally, she and Son went to the store to find her boyfriend something. She made him a big cookie in the shape of a heart. How cute is that?
Son doesn't have a girlfriend, so I don't have to worry about that, for now. He has lots of girls that are friends. I was the same way in school. Lots of boys that were friends, but they were just that, friends. Oh, I had guys I liked and had crushes on, but no one liked me. Well, no one told me they liked me. LOL. It's just as well. Too much drama.
So now, I have a great husband, a couple of terrific kids and lots of laughter and a good life. So I guess I can celebrate the love of Valentine's Day. I hope you can celebrate it too!
