Happy Valentine's Day!!! Yes, it's still Valentine's Day in Arizona, even though it is tomorrow in Australia.
It was great to see everyone's posts and pics and ideas and the little things that have happened to you today. Most romantic thing that happened to you today: Hubs cooked dinner without telling me he was going to! Nice to suddenly not have that stress, best thing I could have asked for. AND he had pink tulips for me AND cupcakes for dessert! Very nice. We used to go out to fancy restaurants ... we will again in the future ... for right now we spend time with the kids.
Favorite romantic quotes (off the top of my head so they are not precise): "I was sure about three things.... I was completely, irrevocably in love with him." "After all the million times I told you I loved you, how could you let one word break you?" "You'll always be my Bella." Ah, l'amour.
Fave Saga song: still A Thousand Years. Turning Page is gorgeous and wonderful and deep, but I love 1000 Years for its dramatic way of saying that they were always meant to be in love, and that love is eternal.
No gifties, staying up late as it is! Posts:
Kayla, the heart and the new thread title ROCK. Thanks!
Marielle, I'm so sorry for you and BF. Grandmas are pretty special people and it's a big loss. My condolences to both of you.
Songbird, I forgot Nessa was a character in Wicked. You don't have to see the play, it is based on a book of the same name by Gregory McGuire. Very good, but kind of challenging... hard to explain. Check it out if you want, it was a bestseller.
Susie, I was sorry to hear about hubs being laid off, that's always stressful even when you are confident in your skills. Glad to hear he will be rejuvenating during this time and good luck with the job hunt!
Tammy, wow, those are pretty avies! I like your thinking! I like the top one a bit better with the sky around the heart. What about making the heart a bit bigger to fill the square more, and then turning the sparkles silver or gold or prismatic (vampire sparkles, ya know) and having them in a swirly pattern, with a beginning and end, rather than a cluster?
Now to close out the party with late night drunken confessions (no, not really drunk, just lemonade):
I'm working hard right now to microschedule myself which seems to be working very well generally. I still have more stuff to do than can be done, but if I write it down ahead of time and block time for tasks, it doesn't matter if I forget - I just check my calendar. I started at work but have now moved this to home, like this evening was 7:30-8, hang with kids, 8-8:30, dishes, 8:30-9:30, email etc ... although I did not block enough time for the party and am doing that from 10:45-11:30, when I should have been in bed at 11. Well, it's still better, and I am less stressed when I get more done.
Must go to bed NOW - did not get to bed on time past 2 nights either. LOVE, and see you on the new thread! I will bring decorations - maybe tomorrow???
