day 44 & 45–Valentine’s Day and President’s Day

February 13, 2010 by  

44 & 45

It’s finally the weekend! I’ve had the longest short week in the history of the world. The kids were home Thursday and Friday, which was nice, but we packed SO VERY MUCH in the first three days of the week that I’m still catching up.

I’m sort of exhausted, actually.

But! I’m on TV today at 8:45 or so am on a local channel. It’ll be a fun experience, but because of it I’ve needed to cook two extra things in crockpots (creme brulee and pomegranate beef), find clothes that actually fit (I’m going to wear a maternity top, but somehow my regular jeans fit? beyond weird.), and squeeze in a visit to the nail place. I didn’t get a hair cut, which means my last hair cut was in October. shh. don’t tell anyone.

and this site was down, which was kind of frustrating.

Thank you for all of the sweet emails—I think it’s back to normal now.

The last time I remember Valentine’s Day being the same time as President’s Day weekend was in 1997. or was it 98? I’m not really sure, but I do know that it was the first and only time I’ve gone skiing.  It was fun, but I don’t see me doing it again any time soon. I think I’d rather sit in a cozy place with a good book.

anyhow, This Weekend:

have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

keep up with the Daily 7 as much as you can so it isn’t a rude awakening on Tuesday morning

have the kids help out around the house, moreso than usual. They are home, and therefore and making more messes. Put them to work!

yesterday: V-Day prep

    Woohoo on fitting into your regular jeans! Happy Valentine’s Day weekend! :-) Now, I hate to break it to you, Steph, but actually last year Valentine’s Day was the same weekend as President’s Day. LOL V Day was on Sat and President’s Day was on Monday. We had our V Day party last year and we always have that on the long weekend to make it easier on folks traveling. I’m not a skier either. I’m the girl with the hot cocoa by the fireplace. 😉 Anyway, enjoy!

      AH! I’m wrong! Thanks, Shirley. :-0
      I hope you had an absolutely wonderful Valentine’s Day.

      xoxo steph
