Valentine's Day Re-cap

We went out to eat and in Mr. R's words, I picked an unromantic F'n truck stop to eat at and I made Valentine's Day suck. Of course he didn't mention this until after we left the place. I didn't think it would matter where we were, just that we were together. Guess not. We got home and I got out my homemade chocolate covered strawberries and whipped cream and things were a little better. We exchanged gifts and it was funny how much we think alike. We both got each other a few of the same things and wrote some of the same stuff in our cards.

Do I think we're soul mates? Yeah, maybe. Do I think we're having a really hard time right now? YEP! Do I think we'll make it? Who knows. All I know is that after the last 6 months, it's a miracle we're still together now, so I'm not giving up and according to him, neither is he.

Maybe Today...

"Maybe Today..."

What exactly does that mean? I remember seeing that all over little plaques when I was little. I guess it was a 70's thing?

However, I've been thinking about that a lot lately...

"Maybe Today"... I'll get a call for more kids for my daycare.
"Maybe Today"... I'll figure out how to pay these bills.
"Maybe Today"... I'll get motivated and get us on a better homeschooling schedule.
"Maybe Today"... I'll figure out how to get this house in order.
"Maybe Today"... I'll wake up and Obama being President will have just been a bad dream.
"Maybe Today"... all the millions of people who have lost their jobs will find new ones.
"Maybe Today"... the government will care about how to fix our own country's problems instead of acting like we care about the rest of the world.

I'm too tired to post any more but you get the idea. Whatchagonnado? In the words of Cristy Lane (yep, I remember her too)... "One Day At A Time, Sweet Jesus"... enough said?

Anyway, I had a fabUlous weekend. The kids went to g-ma and g-pa's and Mr. R and I spent some much needed time together. We hung out here and at his house. He helped me get all my junk out of storage and put it in my "free" storage unit. (I couldn't justify spending the extra money every month to have my junk somewhere other than in my own garage.) We didn't really do anything too exciting... we played pool and darts, watched movies, went out to eat and just hung out. It was fun.
