Happy VD

I’m just here to say that you haven’t experienced Valentine’s Day until you’ve experienced an elementary school classroom on Valentine’s Day.

The pink cookies with sprinkles, the Valentine Cards, the vanilla cupcakes with confetti icing, the heart-shaped donuts, the glittered Valentine boxes, the conversation hearts, the high volumed children, the green-sucker stained tongues, the sugar highs, (including me, the teacher), and finally the sugar crash.

I’m whipped.

Can I just tell you that I’m whipped?

Will someone please listen to me when I stress that I am W-H-I-P-P-E-D?

Anyone?

Cupid took a bull whip and lashed me, whipped me, stomped me, and then sat his fat, half-naked butt on top of me with an arrow poking me in the gut.

My brain is cream cheese frosting right now.

Here’s my logic:  if light is opposite dark, and black is opposite white, and up is opposite down, then salt is opposite sugar.  Logical?  Yes, I think so. 

I just consumed an enormous amount of Gardetto’s with 430 milligrams of sodium to help offset the 900 grams of sugar I ate today.

It’s not working.

My romantic thought of the day:  On our honeymoon Jason took me by the hand, pushed the PLAY button on Patsy Cline’s Crazy, and we slow danced cheek-to-cheek in Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame while tourists stared, and the world stopped turning except for us that day.

Valentine Day?

How can anyone be romantic on a day with the initials VD?

Happy Heart Day, tell someone you love them.

happy Valentines Day

Today is the day that you either love or hate. I’m not that much into it, but I’m married to the most romantic man alive, and I was not sewn with as much as a romantic thread. Because this day is so special to him, I should make it special to me. We celebrated last night, since Saturday is our day for our niece to spend the night with us. We had a fabulous dinner at a swanky cafe, then had a movie. I was exhausted! It was 1:30 before we were home and I couldn’t hold my eyes open. This morning, of course my coffee was made for me as it is every morning, and a lovely card propped against the coffee pot. He is probably the greatest husband out there. I take him for granted all the time. I prayed for years for a husband and I would pray for him before we were married, even when I did not know him. God chose him for me. We have our tough times and I sometimes question it all. But then when I realize how much I love him, and know that I would do it all over again. May you have a loving day!
