What a great Valentine’s Day!
First, Mark made me an amazing three-course candellight dinner last night. He even got me the single best Valentine’s present I’ve ever received – a leather-bound, single volume, 50th anniversary edition of my favorite book:
I am ashamed to admit I didn’t get HIM a present. Or a card. 😳
(I was wondering – does anyone else give presents on Valentine’s Day? Are guys supposed to get presents, or just give?)
Then, this morning I didn’t have to go in to work because of the snowy, icy weather. As you can see from the above picture, snow drifted all the way to the top of our steps and our snow shovel is frozen solid under all the layers of snow and ice. Until the ice melts it cannot be removed except perhaps with a pickaxe. Mark had to borrow the neighbor’s shovel to clear the walks.
Ben does seem to have a cold. He took a long afternoon nap, and seems a little happier this evening than he did last night. We’ll run the humidifier for him; maybe it will help him to sleep better tonight. The older two are fine so far, and played WAY too many video games today.
Isaac has a 2 hour delay for school tomorrow, Jonny’s preschool is cancelled, and so is Ben’s OT session. I just hope the roads are nice and clear tomorrow morning for the school buses and for me.
