Valentine's Day is Saturday.
I'm doing nothing, because Tom is deployed. I'll hang out with my kids and hope they don't trash the house.
1. A Cook
You guys know I hate to cook. I would LOVE to have a cook who knew what he or she was doing.
2. A Panic Room
Not to hide from burglars--but to hide from my kids. If they won't stop fighting and are just being annoying, I'd have a place to take off to.
I do like getting flowers. Some people don't think they count since it's expected on Valentine's Day, but I don't agree. I love flowers whenever I can get them. Sometimes I forget to water the poor things, but for the first few days they look fabulous in my kitchen.
If I can't have a cook, will someone please make me dinner? But Tom is deployed so he can't. Natalie would give me a very messy peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I'll probably order pizza. With cinnamon sticks.
5. New books
Even though I've run out of space for new books, I can't quit buying them. I try to stick to the library, but sometimes I can't help myself.
6. My husband
I wish he could come home. Instead I'll settle for a Facetime date if the Internet over there cooperates.
You might be wondering why I didn't mention chocolate because I've made it known on my blog and all over my social media that I adore chocolate. Here's the thing: I'm cheap, so I buy chocolate 50% off the day after Valentine's Day. I wait. BUT. Since Tom knew he was deploying and since the stores put out the next holiday stuff even when the current one hasn't even happened yet, Tom was able to purchase some chocolates for me with instructions NOT to eat them before Valentine's Day. I succeeded, but only because I've been stuffing my face with Girl Scout cookies.
So, anyway, what do you want? Do you have fun plans? I'm jealous if you're going to The Melting Pot. I love it there.
Happy Valentine's Day!
