The day before Valentine's Day ... the day after my Dad's 61st birthday ... sucks that he had to celebrate it in heaven again this year, for the 6th year in a row. Look how little the kidlets were at their last Christmas Eve with him. All of those baby teeth gone. Add a foot and a half to their height and lots of attitude, smarts and love. But, know what? I look at this picture and see his love for them. And remember the last time we saw him at my sister's house, running with them and playing with them in the backyard. Although, I'm crying writing this, it makes my heart happy that he had that time with them. Sux some more that since they were so little, they won't really remember him the way they should; they will only have the "picture" memories. Which I guess is better than nothing right? Shows right here how much he loved them. Six years without him seems too long, yet seems like yesterday. Hope your birthday was happy Daddy. We love you.
So, on a lighter note ... the day before Valentine's day. What to do?? How about go to a Flyers game then head to Bistro Romano my fabulous hubs?? Sounds like a plan .... I hope that I can kick this awful cold I have had all week. I even called out of work on Friday and took naps yesterday to try to build up some strength ... kind of feels like someone is sitting on my chest and the coughing - I think I might actually have to go see the doctor. Funny thing? I think I caught it from our bedmate, SweeTart who has been coughing for about a week and a half. Finally took her to the doc on Thursday: an ear infection caused by all the stuff backing up in her sinuses from her nasty cold. Since my ears don't hurt, I think I am okay on that front but between the two of us, we could probably knock the straw house down with our huffing, puffing and coughing. I must run to CVS to get all of their meds for stopping the cough for a few hours at least to get some peace and quiet (Flyers game = quiet? LOL Probably not.)
Since I got nothing accomplished yesterday, today I will need to get Twink's valentine's done for her class. I found some really cute printables out there in blogland this year. For SweeTart's class, we used a decorated treatbag topper that we found at http://www.anythingbutperfect.com/ - Twink loved them so I am thinking of either using those again or using the ones I found over at http://www.livinglocurto.com/2010/01/candy-kiss-free-valentine-printables/. I am not sure which ones she will like better. Since she is still sleeping, maybe I will decide for her? Nah, that could be a disaster I would regret all week, and probably into next Valentine's day.
Missed DinoBoy's last wrestling match of the season yesterday with this cold. Bad, bad mom. He won one and lost won but I heard he battled well in both of them and didn't give up. Kudos dude! I couldn't be prouder of you!! Luckily, I did take some pictures last week with my iPhone of him wrestling so I do have proof that he wrestled this year. :-)
Hope it is an awesome Sunday for you! My day will be awesome! (with loads of cough syrup and cough drops so I don't embarrass the Hubs while we're out!) Go FLYERS!!
