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!
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.
