Happy Valentine's Day

Sorry for being so late in the day again...I have barely had time to breath yet today, let alone blog! But I am now sort of wrapped up for the week, so I have plenty of time! I also have a lovely vase full of Valentine's flowers to inspire me. Thanks, The Boy:-)

Let's see...big crowd for chicken fingers last night. Munchkin, Smoking Hot Roommate, The Boy and I were joined by two of my friends and their boyfriends. It's really funny how many people look at such a simple act...going out to the same place for dinner every Thursday...and say "Wow, that is really cool." And, it totally is:-) I know I have a bunch of readers with kids, and I would strongly encourage you to do the same. It is just a really nice, designated time to do something together every week. And it's fun:-)

I guess that this will be my only chance to wish everyone a Happy Valentine's Day. I think it is a holiday that should be on a weekday all the time. It is just fun enough to make a work day better, but it really isn't fun enough to waste a weekend night on...if that makes sense. I do love getting flowers at work:-). I sent The Boy a dozen warm cookies from a bakery that delivers...I am sure he will appreciate that. And I got Munchkin some candy, too. Her brother sends her flowers at school every year, which is really very nice of him.

Packing up and leaving right after work for the weekend...and I am looking forward to it. It should be a nice, fun weekend with loads of time to myself to sit by the fire, cook, soak in the hot tub, watch TV and read. I am sure that we will have some gossip about boys, too...that is pretty standard fare for teenage girls on trips...

I think the plan is to try and get on the road by 6:00, which lets us miss the horrible rush hour traffic and hopefully get in front of some of the later vacationer traffic. We are taking two cars and will stop to eat somewhere along the way (oh yes, I am very excited about the prospect of McDonald's). If we can get there and get settled in at a reasonable hour, then they can all get up early to go skiing tomorrow.

No word yet on whether or not I will rekindle my snowboarding career...maybe if it's not too cold!
