Happy belated V-day, oh blog friends of mine! I hope everyone's days were splendid. Does anyone else not get into V-day? Seriously, Darin's such a romantic hunk every other day of the year that V-day seems kinda lame for us. Numerous non-V-day times he's stopped by work and dropped of flowers.. or I'll walk into our house to be surprised with a little gift on the table. The man is too good for words, seriously.
We had wanted to go out to eat last night to celebrate. So I do my normal ritual to give D a call when I was leaving practice at 6:00. The poor guy was in bed with a serious stomach ache... he felt horrible and felt even more horrible that he couldn't take me out. So I got home and nursed my poor temperature inflicted, tummy-ached, can't be farther than 5 feet from the toilet, hubby. I made him some soup & tea, rented a movie and just vegged with him. It truly was a very nice night... just wished he felt better!!
He did manage to go shopping for me yesterday. He was going to get me a card but said that they were too tarded. So he gave me a softball, hangers and a lighter. =) Strange? you may ask?? I thought so too until he explained their meaning. He told me the softball represented how fun I was.. that he totally enjoyed that we play softball together and stay active. The hangers represented that I have a 10-shirt free pass in my closet without him nagging me to get rid of stuff. (My deal with him is that if I get a new shirt or pants, a shirt or pair of pants that I no longer wear has to exit my bustin'-at-the-seams closet) And the lighter represented that I loved him even though he tends to do stupid things occasionally. A week ago I was looking for our lighter to light a candle. Asked him where it was cuz he had it last at the grill couples days prior. Oops.. he had left it out and it had rained and snowed on it.. and of course the lighter was still out at the grill. So his presents were totally sweet and thoughtful and so Darin. =) And he's renewing my CK subscription cuz it ran out.. =) The man is AMAZING!! I am the luckiest woman alive...
Love ya, Darin Jay!!
