Valentine's Day Challenge Day 5

Yesterday was day five of my challenge for Valentine's Day. I emailed my husband lots of times during the day. I'll list some of them...or maybe all of them, with replies....if he replies, sometimes he doesn't, cause he is busy at work. (heads up, he didn't answer most of them. He said he was really busy at work today)

First email:
ME: Anyone can be passionate, but it takes real lovers to be silly.

Second email:
ME: If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?

HIM: Tnx. lv u 2

I was a bit disappointed to tell the truth. Some things happened last night which left me a crying mess in the shower and I guess he didn't realize what they meant to me....still doesn't...Men. I am still pretty upset with him over what happened, but I am not going to dwell on it, these are for me, there challenging myself into showing more love for my family.

I also did not do the Hershey Kiss matching game (that will be tonight) , because my head was throbbing, and my body ached.


oh because our damn flipping car isn't fixed yet!!!

That is not snow, I guess I caught the misty dew of dawn that morning....

Kevin was in the middle turning left, there was a break in traffic and he went, then a car slammed into him, apparently he didn't see it...It was speeding. Well The mechanic has had it since Friday Jan 18th. We had a rental until Feb 1st. That was a Friday, they called on Friday saying it wouldn't be ready until Mon. Which is fine I guess, they were having alignment issues...we took the rental back. Monday: car still isn't fixed, so Kevin takes my car to work on Tuesday (he was off on Monday), and I biked to drop off Parker at Pre-K (one mile there) pulling 70+ pounds of kid weight in bike trailer. Then I biked home pulling 40+pounds, the longer way because I had to go to the store (2miles home) So that is 3 miles of hard biking, so far.
Then I walked to pick Parker up from Pre-K, pushing Hunter (1 mile). Then pushed both of them to the store to kill time to get the others out of school, so I wasn't going home and then coming back right away (1mile there and back). I got the the big kids school at 1, it doesn't get out until 2:15...I pulled them out early-bad mom alert, just so I wouldn't have to deal with two 'bored' kids for an hour or so.....then walked home pushing 70+ pounds, while the big kids walked also....

5 miles, yesterday. That's why I am sore.

We picked up a rental for Kevin this morning cause I can't do that again. Plus it is cheaper this way than me driving him back and forth to work for how ever many days he has the rental this time, because the people fixing it , 'just don't know'. UGHHH!

Sorry, vent over.

Here's the challenge:

~Day One: Make coffee for husband, with a note attached with a 'kiss'
~Day Two: Shower Emma with specialness all day long. (its her Birthday she is going to be eight)Nail painting, hair doing, makeup putting on, maybe even going to the mall to window shop?
