Love is the Yolk of Emotions


Love is the Yolk of Emotions, originally uploaded by Misty DawnS.

In five days, it is Valentine's Day (also my grandfather's birthday... I miss him so much)... the holiday of love.
I'm so unprepared. No, I don't prepare for Valentine's Day. I'm unprepared for the fact that it is already almost the middle of February. Seriously... where did January go? Where did the first week of February go?
Oh yeah, I remember now.
First week of February =
- leaving work early due to freezing rain
- heeding the forecasters' advice and staying home and preparing for the "Blizzard of 2011"
- staring out my window at the "Blizzard of 2011"
- having strangers sleep in my living room after Hubs pulled them out of the ditch (as a result of the Blizzard of 2011)
- using a shop vac and bath towels to sop water off the floor of our flooded kitchen
- heaving a sigh of relief that we were home when the kitchen flooded and more damage wasn't done
- heaving a sigh of relief that the blizzard wasn't worse than it was

Oh yeah, I remember now!

Hubs and I have pretty hectic lives, and sometimes it seems we are so busy working and doing "what needs to be done" that we don't take time for what's most important... the whole reason we are here doing all this... "us"... our marriage... our relationship. Some say Valentine's Day is a "Hallmark holiday", created to sell flowers and candy. For me, it's going to be a day to make it a point to remind my husband how great I think he is.

And, for some reason, I now have the urge to make egg salad...

I too have a heart egg shot. I took it with my cell phone so I'm hoping I can clean it up a bit. I cracked open an egg into the frying pan & found a heart shapped yolk.
