Happy Valentines Day! Did your sweetheart do anything special for you today? My husband didn't notice my new haircut, gave me a card and a knife sharpener and went to the movies with his buddy.


Actually, the card was very sweet. The knife sharpener was just a knife sharpener- not a gift. The movie is a longstanding ritual that usually happen on Saturday night but we are going out on a date on Saturday so they are going tonight instead. (The Army has a four day weekend for Presidents Day this weekend.) He really didn't notice my haircut, though.

We are trading babysitting with our friends (hi, Lanessa!) this weekend. They are going out Friday night and we are going Saturday. This is, by the way, the same friend that he is at the movies with right now. So, we are really celebrating love day then, instead. I guess we are going to the Olive Garden. This will be the first time we have been out to eat alone since July. I am really looking forward to it.

Today is also my sisters birthday. (hi, Deanna!) She turned all of 22. For her birthday I got Lillian to tell her that she looks older than me. I am such a good big sister.

It was also friend day at Lillian's preschool and we had to make out 40 (40!) cards. That was a lot more work than I had imagined.

So, whether you are celebrating Valentine's Day today, tomorrow, or Saturday, have a great day and tell someone you care about how much they mean to you.

My husband doesn't get me anything on Valentine's Day, per my request. Long ago I'd rather have a gift or treat or whatever on a day when I'm not expecting it. :)

I wish we had friends who'd swap sitting with us. It would be so much easier to relax knowing my sitter isn't spending all night calling her boyfriend.

So let's see a picture of the new hair.

You're a good sport.
My sweetie brought me flowers, brought THE KIDS flowers and the two of us made a yummy supper together. L'amour.

Knife sharpeners not romantic? I LOVE it! Aren't 10th anniversaries the anniversary of the knife sharpener? ;)
