Valentines day, just another day...?

Really missing time to sit and write…between working so much and sleeping to be ready for work I just haven’t been able to get it done. Which is crazy I never wanted to write anything before, but now I find myself upset that I haven’t made time. Still don’t know what I would write about if I had the time. Seems the subject of all conversations these days is the “2011 BLIZZAD” Frankly I’m done hearing about it. I have been walking around with my ear buds in so I don’t have to listen…ugh!

So Valentines day. When your young and in love it seems that this is one of the most important days of the year. But I see now that when you are “old” and in love it really is just another day. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying this because he didn’t do anything sweet for me because he did. We dropped our girls off at the skating rink and went to dinner alone. He didn’t however spend crazy amounts of money on silly flowers that just die. He spends crazy amounts of money on other things I want throughout the entire year...camera, laptop, chicken coop, barn for a cow we didn't need but the girls and I wanted to know what it was like to bottle feed a baby cow. Whatever it is he is very good at spoiling me.  My dad said when we were about to be married(nearing 16 years now)..."I can't believe they will let the most spoiled girl in Skiatook marry the most spoiled guy in Sperry"  But who else could take care of each of us other than us?  But really  I don’t need all that to know how much he loves me. Yes it’s nice to get flowers, but I don’t want them if he just feels obligated to do so because of some commercial holiday. I want them when there is no reason at all except because he loves me and wanted to see me smile. Which he does.  But it is also the little not so grand things he does through the year that shows me he loves me too. Like working everyday to make sure our bills and mortgage get paid, or starting my truck for me while I get ready for work when there is 15" of snow outside, or turning off the PS3 because he knows I hate to watch that silly game, or recording my favorite show because he knows I work that night and cant watch it til the weekend... 

I am always on facebook, several times a day everyday(if you cant get a hold of me send me a message via FB). A few days ago a friend had a status update that said pretty much exactly what I was thinking about Valentines day. And Yes I too hate it because it is so commercialized. She said… 
“I hate Valentines day....It is possibly to most ridiculous holiday we have in American society. Why does there have to be one day to make your loved one feel special. You should make her feel that special everyday. Buy her daisies because its Tuesday and you wanted her to know that she is the most important person in your life.
And cook him his favorite dinner and wear that sexy red dress just because you know it has been a long week at work for him. There shouldn’t be just one day that people feel like they have to treat there "someone" like a million bucks....do it everyday!! If you really love them, then everyday should be Valentines day!!! So stores can take there red and pink boxes of chocolates and put them where the sun doesn’t shine J ”

I really couldn’t have said it any better myself. Thanks JH for the great words.  To everyone else I challenge you to make your special someone feel like it is Valentines day every day…March 12, May 27, June 14 EVERYDAY even if it is just a little note (text or FB post)letting them know your thinking about them.
Enjoy the rest of February(maybe we can have some more of this great weather and not the snow we had the first half)

Snow Day :)

Winter is my favorite season!  I remember how awesome it was getting up and looking out seeing this awesome snow everywhere and running to the living room to check channel 6 to see if our school was out for the day...good times.  Today (day 5 of 2011 blizzard) I do still love the snow.  the good times of being able to stay home all day and play in it or just veg in front of the tv are long gone.  Yep, it was up and at it for me Tuesday and everyday since.  I am glad to have a job where everyone just gets out there to get the job done.  I do miss being able to have time to play in the snow and spend time with my girls while they are out of school. but they understand, that even though I only clean and stock ambulances it is important to be there.  I hope that with this, the one lesson they learn is a good work ethic.  that if you have a job do what ever it takes to get it done.  As for this blizzard, well...Im ready for my second favorite season SUMMER!  Stay warm.
