Yesterday was Valentines Day. It didn't seem much like a holiday to me though. It was a very busy day.
My sweet husband did get me these beautiful roses though, and a box of cashews. (I'm phasing off my diet, but still trying to avoid too many sweets :)
When my four year old saw me smelling them, he asked if he could smell my trees - ha. They were long stemmed before I cut them to fit the vase.
But the best thing I got for Valentines Day I didn't even know about until this morning. I was exhausted yesterday after undoing this All.Day.Long.
Yeah. I had child locks on the cabinets, but over time they had loosened up with use. So while I went to bed early last night (extremely rare for me - it was 11) my sweet husband installed magnetic cabinet locks! WOOHOO!!
Today has already been more peaceful ;)
I guess mad etch-a-sketch skills run in the family ...though it must be on my husband's side, because I could never get the stupid lines to go where I wanted them. Anyway, the eight year old is a genius with it, and now the four year old is really interested in it. He had to show us is skills...
The four year old is really into watching chapel on the computer. It is broadcast online from the Bible college my daughter attends, and he knows she is watching the same thing. He always tells me she is there :)
