It’s a working weekend. Work, work, work. I’ve got a bunch lined up, so I’ll be plugging my way through as long as I can stay focused. Sometimes weekends are SO hard to do that. It’s Saturday! That means family fun time. Not sitting at my computer staring at the screen time. Alas, that’s not always the way.
We will be going to the Chinese New Year parade tomorrow morning. Jason will be playing with the Scottish pipe band (he plays the bass drum). The kids will get excited by all the fancy people walking by and the big crowds. They’ve been anxious to go since we went last year for the same reason.
Work before that. Work after that.
It is V-Day though on Sunday. We all know and love V-Day for a variety of reasons.
To commemorate our V-Day experience six years ago, we tried to up the ante today — completely unintentionally — by almost getting caught by our children. You know… CAUGHT! For the sake of their therapy bills and our future “teeth brushing” activities, I’m so grateful it was almost and not definite.
I’ll tell you though, realizing your kids are not where they’re supposed to be while you’re “brushing your teeth” is like a blast of icy cold water being thrown in your face over and over while you relive the horror on repeat. In Antarctica. Naked. In front of everyone you know. As they point and laugh. And you’re giving a speech.
In other words, pretty much a nightmare.
So anyway, now that I’ve ruined any chance for romance you might have had this weekend after forcing you to picture the horror of me and Jason and the thought of almost being caught, hope you’re having fun planning all of your potentially romantic (or platonic or a-day-like-any-other-Sunday) day!
Hearts, kisses, hugs, blah, blah, blah, love and all that nonsense.
