Trekking through life: Faith, family, friends and a whole lot of coffee!

Just another day… February 14, 2013

Filed under: Uncategorized — tracye1 @ 7:06 AM

Valentine’s day, meh.  We don’t really do it up here.  Usually just a little sweet token for everyone and the classroom valentine swap and that’s about it.  As Hubby says, “Everyday is Valentine’s Day around here!”, ummmm ok…….LOL!  In my younger years, I was pouty when I didn’t get my trinkets or sufficient sweetness, now it really is just annoying…I far prefer the little things, therefore agreeing with the Hubs (however, I always enjoy a sweet card and token of chocolateness)  :

  • Having the bed made for me every morning
  • Fish sticks and french fries ready after returning with the 13 yo from his RE class after Mass distribution
  • Coffee in the morning….in quiet
  • Prayers at night
  • Having the laundry done
  • Having the taxes done
  • Completing home projects

The list is endless, but my favorite thing is just being together, and that’s enough.  However, for good measure I like to throw a little sumthin’ sumthin’ out for the kids (and Hubby) in the morning for fun!! (plus the girls get out of bed REAL quick like when they realize there’s probably a little surprise at the table….)
