Earlier in our marriage we would go out to dinner on Valentine's Day but, to be honest, I would rather stay home and just spend some time together. Maybe order a pizza and watch movies or friends reruns. We show each other how much we care all the time. Today is a day is for young couples. A chance to act like it's your anniversary before you're even had one yet. We've had twelve anniversaries and they have all been better than any Valentine's Day.
My kids aren't as into Valentine's Day as I was. Of course school isn't as much fun as it was when I was kid either. Sami's class got their party taken away because of their behavior yesterday. I doubt this bothered the kids much. They are used to getting the extras taken away. They've missed pizza parties and more recces than I can count. Sami's not one of "those kids" but she's in the class so her fun stuff gets canceled too. She thinks it's more annoying than anything else.
Nevyn, being a boy, doesn't care about Valentine's at all. All he's looking forward to is the candy. The box of cards we got this year was full of those mini nerds boxes with little valentine cards to go with them. He didn't even open the package. He has no intention of handing out the cards. He said it's a wast of time since everyone just wants the candy anyway. He's probably right but it would have been nice to at least see what they look like.
|From Jeremy to me|
|From me to Jeremy|
When Jeremy gets home from work today we're going to exchange gifts. I'm pretty excited. I know he's going to like what I got him and what he got me is in a huge box and all he said was that I was going to love it. If you know Jeremy, then you know that can mean a few different things but I'm getting my hopes up for something similar to what was on my wish list list from a few blogs ago. I can't tell you what his gift is yet because he'll read this before he gets home. But take my word for it, he'll be happy.
