Valentines Day

I am horrible. I am truly awful. I got nothing for Joe for Valentine's Day. absolutely nothing. I remember asking him a few days before if he wanted anything because I wanted to make sure he didn't give me some dumb ol stuffed animal or dead flowers or something. can you tell, a romantic I'm not? he said no, there was nothing he wanted or needed so that's exactly what I got for him. nothing. but did he get ME nothing? of course not. he got me a gift certificate to my yarn shop.
in the condition that he's been in lately, having not even been able to drive in months & months, not being able to breath, not being able to even walk, he got in the car & drove himself to the yarn shop & got me the goodie. so do you know what brightened up his whole day??? me, heating up his lasagna for him. is this a match made in heaven or what? the giver & the taker, living happily ever after. need I say that I am the taker? no, I didn't think so.

Whatcha gonna get with the gift certificate??? I didn't get the hub anything either since we had a snow day and I'm a last minute kinda gal. He got me an elliptical machine I've been wanting. Although Valentine's Day wasn't exactly WHEN I wanted it. It kinda felt like..."I love you honey but I'd like to love less of you." You know? LOL

so, now i have proof. you DO feel guilty. sometimes. so to make it up to him, you'll just have to suprise him with some random act of kindness. you know, something sweet for no reason at all, when he's least expecting it. that is your assigned atonement. do it, and all will be forgiven.

now, let's move on to more important stuff. whatchaknittinon?

Wow, I couldn't imagine you could be so cruel! See, you just never really know a person. Ha! Ha! Ha!

I'm sure you will make up to poor Joe for being so miserable to him.

:P
