OT - Thankful Thursday
Whose enjoying VD? Yes, I DO mean Valentine's Day. First of all, I disagree that VD is strictly for lovers. Not everyone has a significant other. Some people call this Singles Awareness Day (one of my nephews). Others call it Singles Appreciation Day (my sister). Regardless, there is no need to feel left out. Are your parents still around? Let them know you love them. Spend some quality time with your furbabies. Hang out with a friend. Enjoy the day!
My DH is typically UNromantic. His love language is Acts of Service. Installing a new well pump or rewiring the upstairs are the kinds of things he thinks of over flowers and candy. Occasionally, he remembers VD and buys a card and a box of candy; more often than not, he forgets because he rarely knows what day it is. So you can imagine my shock when I came home yesterday to flowers AND candy AND a LOVE key chain with a note that says "now you can carry my love with you wherever you go". I admit it... I got choked up and a tear or two managed to sneak out. He called me on his break and I asked why today and not tomorrow. He has something else! Where is my DH and what have you done with him?!
Anyhoo, today I am thankful for:
- my DH. He has an exhausting schedule and took a LOT of time to make a rare romantic gesture. When it happens once in a blue moon, it's all that more meaningful.
- I'm seeing good results from my tortuous PT sessions with my sadistic therapist. I'm no longer gritting my teeth through the pain.
- fresh produce. Yes, PRODUCE. Growing up, we didn't often have FRESH produce in the middle of Winter. An orange in our Christmas stocking was a YUGE treat and most of our veggies were canned; not fresh. I had a salad for dinner last night. Nom!
- Cupcakes. Oh, yes, I went there! LOL! Aniki is craving a Salted Caramel Cupcake: dark chocolate cake, fudgy frosting, drizzled with rich ooey-gooey caramel and sprinkled with sea salt. Aaaaaaahhh...
Show some love STalkers!
