Happy Valentine's Day!

I got flowers today! Way to go Hubster! I also got a cute card. YAY him!

Today has been a LOOOOONG day. It started at 6:15 am, when my alarm advised that it was time to get up for Middleman's 7:15 am hockey game. The whole family came (MIL included) but alas, our cheering was clearly not enough and they lost 2-0. That's the first playoff game...no points for Lowe's.

We got home at 8:45 and began working on our basement. It is a complete, cluttered disgrace. Any time something is in the way on the first or second floor, we have been carting it down to the basement...and it shows. We can hardly walk a path to Hubster's office, let alone FIND anything. I made a pile of garbage while Hubster and Boy Oneder filled up the van for a trip to the recycle plant. Once the van was stuffed, they left and I made a pile of stuff for Value Village. Threepeat's baby toys, 2 exersaucers, two old colour printers, tons of VHS movies. I was so glad that someone wlse would get good use of it. Hubster and Boy Oneder filled up the van and were off to Value Village, while I made another pile for the dump.

They came home from Value Village and advised that they only wanted the VHS tapes and the printers. ALL of the baby stuff was not acceptable due to recalls/hazards, etc. So, what did my husband do? Added the dump pile to the Value Village pile and dumped it ALL. Threepeat's infant car seat that was used for about 6 months...spotless. He dumped it. I am trying not to seethe as I type. Excuse me for a moment...

"He bought me flowers and a card today. He bought me flowers and a card today. He bought me flowers and a card today. He bought me flowers and a card today. He bought me flowers and a card today. He bought me flowers and a card today. He bought me flowers and a card today. He bought me flowers and a card today. He bought me flowers and a card today. He bought me flowers and a card today. He bought me flowers and a card today. He bought me flowers and a card today."

OK...I'm back. Sorry about that. Anyhoo...we were done around 11:30ish, so Hubster and Boy Oneder headed out for lunch at Harvey's while Middleman and Threepeat ate lunch with Nanna. I didn't have lunch because I had to shower and get over to my newest hero (yes Julie...you read that right) the Chiropractor. I was already feeling like a million bucks today after yesterday's treatment, but like a heroin addict, once you've had it once, you are hooked and I looked forward to meeting with her again.

She did the ultrasound thingy again and a quick massage and then she adjusted me...and on my right side, it worked. She had me turn over, but, unforch, she was unable to adjust the left (problem) side. So, I have another appointment on Tuesday. Is it Tuesday yet?

When I got back, Hubster was sleeping (surprise, surprise) Excuse me..."He bought me flowers and a card today. He bought me flowers and a card today. He bought me flowers and a card today. He bought me flowers and a card today. He bought me flowers and a card today. He bought me flowers and a card today. He bought me flowers and a card today. He bought me flowers and a card today." and Boy Oneder was doing his Kumon. Middleman and Threepeat were watching TV. MIL was just going out. It was 1:30. I know, I know...I TOLD you it was a loooong day.

I then took Threepeat for a drive so that he would nap...he has been brutal with sleeping for the past few days (he has had a fever on and off for a couple of days and isn't eating too well, so something's up). He took forever to drop off and I took my time driving home. I called home and asked Middleman to come out to the car so that he could sit in the car with sleeping Threepeat while I popped into the grocery store. He agreed (bless his heart) and I grabbed the ingredients for homemade lasagna.

By the time I came out of the grocery store (not 8 minutes later) Threepeat was wide awake, playing air drums to the blasting electrodance music Middleman was playing. (rolls eyes) We headed home and by this time it was about 3:00. I threw the sauce together and let it simmer while I warmed the oven. I put the lasagna together and cooked it for 20 minutes. At 4:00, we had to leave for Boy Oneder's hockey game, so I just turned off the oven and left the lasagne to continue cooking as the oven cooled down.

Boy Oneder's game was at 5:15 and for the first period, they were winning 1-0. Yeah...like THAT was gonna last. When all was said and done, the score was 4-1...we lost...again. We headed home to what I would consider to be my best lasagna yet, with garlic bread and salad. MMMMM....

I headed back out to the grocery store to pick up some odds and ends (read as chips and milk) and am now lying in bed with my baby schmoopy who I THINK just fell asleep on my chest. It's 9:20. I told you it was a looooong day!!

If you read this far, God bless you! I am beyond exhausted, but I must read my chapter of New Moon, so tata for now! Pin It
