Happy V's Day! Since I like to live on the edge, I'll post this in red. I'm not a romantic. Valentine's Day isn't my favorite holiday. I think it probably is Thanksgiving. That probably tells you something about me.
The Chairman, however, is the more sensitive, kind, and complimentary of our two-some. He often will say, 'that was a really good thus-and-such for supper. You looked nice today! I like your hair that way (he often says it when it feels really messy). I need to be more like that. Not the messy hair. Being nice.
I was thinking this morning of reading the newspaper over breakfast approximately 20 years ago on V's Day and seeing my name along with my two single roommates in a Valentine's Post wishing us a happy day. A very happily married man posted it because he thought we needed cheering on a day like that. Thoughtful? Very much so.
The Chairman was out of town yesterday for work and so the MYP and I were sitting around the table having a discussion about many, many things. It was almost like a channel surfing conversation. One comment did make me laugh. You know the term 'helicopter parent'? Well one of the MYP said I was like an 'airplane parent'. I go about letting them make their own choices, but then I will come zooming in and drop a bomb and go off again if something doesn't seem right. It was honestly quite accurate.
Another had a question about engagements. I told them oftentimes, and engagement can last nine months up to a year. One seriously asked me, 'can you see the other person during that time?'. Um. I hope so!
I have a nephew that is turning 27 today. He means a very lot to me. But I think he means more to a lot of other people. Happy birthday to you N!
I posted a video on FB of the two furry friends having a good wrestle on this Valentine's morn. For some reason I can't upload it to Blogger... so if you want to see it, I guess you have to be my friend!
A couple things that I enjoyed this week..
I think I'm thought out... on this Thursday.
