Just an ordinary day

I'm not a big Valentine's person. I feel like if you want to get my flowers, just spontaneously bring me some- not on some designated day that every man feels the need to buy flowers for his love! To me it's a big money-making Hallmark holiday. I just don't get it. It's fun for the kids, I know, but I could care less. Zach asked me a couple of times yesterday if I was sure I didn't want anything! I told him he could just get me a Kit Kat & I'd be happy! And it seems you spend so much money on flowers that die in no time at all! Actually we'll be getting our new laptop and that's enough to make me happy! After lunch we went out to ice cream at the Marble Slab. I got mint ice cream with brownie mixed in in a Heath/chocolate waffle cone. YUM! We then went grocery shopping and brought those bags of toys to Goodwill. They didn't even ask what was in there- they just took them! I'm so glad they're off of our hands!

I feel like the past couple of days I got a lot accomplished! Between getting the basement straightened out, putting pictures on here, doing bills, putting away laundry I feel like I deserve a medal;) Not really....I just want some quiet so I can finish my book. I got a phone call that a book I have on hold at the library is in. I think its Twilight. I've heard so much about this book that I want to read it for myself. I'm taking the plunge and joining the ranks;) I'll let you know what I think! For now, I'm off to read about the Amish...

You sound like Steve & I. We sent each other e-cards!! Although he is working his behind off to re-arrange the house for me. It just so happens that it fell on today. have a nice weekend with the kids.

I agree with you. It's over rated. When I was at the mall today. It was crazy seeing all these men in a line to buy flowers then walking into the jewelry store. I'm the same way with flowers, you spend all that money and they die in a couple days. I have a bunch of toys that BG never plays with. I think I'm gonna take them to the consignment shop on base here this week. Starting to get rid of junk for the move. I know I got a while yet, but I like to plan way ahead.

There is nothing like getting that phone call from the library, is there? Enjoy your book!

Enjoy Twilight--I loved those books! Be careful--they made me a bad mom because I was so addicted to them! =)

Nate & I were joking about Valentine's Day and we decided that Hallmark does NOT have a card for every occasion...unless they have a belated Valentine's Day card! =) I need to find one of those for Nate...hehehehe!
