Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!

I hope you are all enjoying your day.........................

I'm going to be honest with you -- I was kinda grumpy about Valentine's Day this year. I told my husband "Don't waste your time getting anything for me this year or trying to be romantic...I have to work Sunday, Monday, & Tuesday so it's not worth it. Let's just pretend Vday isn't happening this year, okay? It will be easier this way"

He concurred.

Instead of spending Vday having a romantic time with my husband,....... I will be spending it hanging antibiotics, bathing old people, doing assessments, assisting people while they vomit, & running around like a chicken with my head-cut-off at work. How romantic.!!!

Well, I got home from work this morning -- walked into our kitchen, flipped on the lights to find a bouquet of beautiful roses and a heart-felt, hand-written love-note


Okay, maybe Valentine's Day isn't SO bad. ;) I'm very blessed. My husband's a good guy

I have just 2 more nights and I'm on a little vacation for a week! We are staying at the W Scottsdale resort in Scottsdale & then flying North to see Ryan's family and be there for our Goddaughter/Niece Claire's Baptism! It will be a fantastic time!

I'm kinda ready for a little break from work!! Last week I worked 4 nights in a row, took 2 nights off and was back at it -- I feel like I kind of live there lately and I miss sleeping in my bed at night!

Have a great day and remind ALL the fabulous people how much you love them!

I am glad that Ryan surprised you like that! I know life is stressful and working nights is less than ideal... but hopefully this will be behind you soon!

And just be thankful that you HAVE a Valentine. :) I know it sucks to not be able to spend the holiday together and to go days w/out seeing each other, but I'd love to have what you two have. :) Whenever I find myself down about things, I say to myself, "I am lucky because...." I think if you think of life in that way, it helps! And you are definitely VERY lucky to have a wonderful husband who adores you!

I agree with Lisa - you are so fortunate to have such a romantic husband who treats you like a "rose petal"! Remember those words? :)!
