I am such a bad blogger.  I did not post a Valentine’s post and I am late for Pinteresting Tuesday!  I feel like I should share what has been going on.

On Monday, my daughter came down with a fever.  I swore it was strep throat since we get strep a lot.  After a 2-hour doctor’s visit… All the tests came up negative.  She did not have strep or any other bacterial infection.  Unfortunately, when you have a fever you got to stay home from school.   She was beyond distraught.  She was going to miss the Valentine’s festivities and her 100th day activities.  I told her I would make it up to her.  We would have a fabulous Valentine’s day.  So, I sewed all day… That is what she wanted to do.  She wanted me to sew.  People who know me are laughing right now.  I have not sewn anything since 8th grade home economics… where I brought home a C for my amazing sewing ability.  Luckily for me, my daughter saw past the imperfections in the American Girl clothes I made yesterday and only saw the love I put into my charming creations.

My Very Favorite

My husband took me out for Valentine’s Day.  It was a comedy of errors.  Another undercooked steak, a very sad rose, and a bit of rushing to the resturant.  It was a fabulous night though, because my husband is absolutely positively the best man.  I could not have asked for a more wonderful husband.  I also have an amazing best friend who came over to watch the kids so we could go out.  The kids loved hanging out with her and I loved hanging out with her into the wee hours of the night… even though my body is pretty tired today.  My kids were also big sweeties yesterday.  I could not have felt more loved!

Calculating Sleep

This pin is so appropriate for me, especially today.  Last night we were up quite late playing Kinect after we got back from dinner.  I have to admit, I calculated the amount of sleep I got when I got into to bed at 12:30 and decided I could still get a chapter or two in before I fell asleep.  I really have a hard time not reading before falling asleep so I have got to be really tired to skip it.  I got about 4-5 hours of sleep and I am a bit tired.  I am surprised though that I was not tired enough to take a nap.  My guess is it will catch up with me about the time the kids come home from school.  That is how it usually works for me anyway.

A Funny Valentine

I did not get a valentine like this one from my kids, but I had to share it because it makes me laugh.  His parents are lucky to be alive… for now.  I love the intensity this little one put into his card.  I am sure his parents cherish this little treasure… I know I would.
