Rick and I spread our Valentines Day out this year. Friday we did the movie thing. What made it romantic was, at Ricks suggestion, we saw Julie and Julia the last movie on the planet he ever wanted to see. We spent last night with some friends and this morning I woke up to a beautiful card on my pillow. Rick said he would have given me chocolate but he didn't want to tempt me from my diet. The man has never heard of food storage?
It was a lame excuse but at least we didn't spend the holiday this year trying to get last minute reservations for dinner and only to end up with take out from Taco Bell.
I even got my grandchildren some chocolate (that I never even tasted, I might add). They also loved the musical card I got them. I know they loved it because they played it, You Are My Sunshine, over and over and over and ........
I was feeling pretty good about the day until my son Garret called from BYU Idaho with a report about his girlfriend. "Mom, Jenica's, mom sent her somethng for Valentines Day. Her mom loves her."
I only wanted to know one thing. "How come she didn't love you enough to send you a package."
I hope you all had a wonderful day and all your Mother's Daze are happy.
