I so enjoy joining in with the Five on Friday hosted by Amy from Love Made My Home. I’m putting this post together on Wednesday (my day off this week) since I work the next two days. I’ll just link up before work on Friday.
So for my five this week, I thought I’d share my Valentine’s Day with you. First, a confession. The two days prior to Valentine’s Day, I was quite grouchy and acting very unlovable. Sunday, I was just in a terrible mood. Monday happened to be the anniversary (10 years if my math is correct) of my mother’s death. Not things that help one get in a mood to be feel romantic.
Upon waking on Tuesday, I realized part of the reason for my sour mood was the precursor to the nasty cold I’m now fighting. By now I should realize when I get so grouchy, illness is on the horizon. However, I did not feel bad enough to back out of work where I’d been asked to help out with the Valentine’s Day party.
Nothing like a little preschool love to improve your outlook and give you positive happy feelings which is where my five start.
ONE: Preschool Valentines
Some of the preschool kids had extra Valentines they handed to us. Sweet kids.
And one little girl brought in little Valentine’s day boxes specifically for all the teachers. Since I’m not there all the time: I had to check and make sure this was actually intended for me as sometimes the kids get confused. After making sure all the other teachers had one of their own, this was indeed for me.
Two: Flowers From My Husband
I really didn’t expect anything for Valentine’s Day this year as I had been so grouchy and fed up the past two days. It’s not a huge deal in our house either. So I was quite shocked to return from picking up my oldest from school to find these on the kitchen table. This daisy really caught my eye…so pretty!
Three: Sweet Valentine’s Day Cards
I didn’t get cards for my husband or boys this year. Since the first card I looked at cost seven bucks, I opted to skip the cards this year!
Still, can’t say I didn’t absolutely love my cards.
Four: Favorite Candy
My all-time favorite candy, better than chocolate especially since I know they had to put effort into finding it.
I gave the boys their favorite candies as well, the same kinds for all 3 of them. Plus they each got their favorite kind of popcorn!
Five: A Favorite Valentine’s Day Dinner
I’m glad we didn’t have grand Valentine’s Day dinner plans as by dinner time I was feeling quite under the weather. Most of my evening was spent literally under the covers watching television in bed. My oldest had pep band and my husband was kind enough to do the running around for that as well as pick up the pizza.
Now, I’m going to go back to my bed (or maybe the couch) instead of dealing with the mess on kitchen table (and elsewhere):
There’s something special about unexpected Valentine’s Day love, I think. How was your Valentine’s Day?
