This heart is actually just for looks; I forgot about Valentine's Day.....again.
Not a lot going on lately; I've been extremely busy with work, planning a wedding, and running. Friday I kept seeing vase after vase of roses being carted in by our admins and I finally went and asked a girl what the roses for? She looked at me like I was insane and mentioned Valentine's Day. Oh shoot. I had forgotten again. I personally think that this holiday is overrated, but after work, I went by and got Maddy some candy, a card, and a stuffed animal. I got Rick a card too, even though I didn't think he would get me anything. Our first V Day together he went out of his way to get chocolate covered strawberries, a card, etc and I made a big deal out of the fact that I didn't think we should celebrate our love just ONE DAY a year (I had obviously forgotten that year too) and that we should celebrate every day of the year (basically handed him a load of crap), but he has never gotten me anything ever again. Except soap....last year. Private joke. Anyway, Valentine's Day went off without a lot of celebration. I got a ton of things accomplished that day like filing my taxes and a ten mile run. I know....I'm very romantic. I did make some beef stew that night for dinner. Anyway, the ten mile run was on the treadmill because it was snowy and twentysome degrees outside. I was going to wait until Sunday to do a long run, but I figured running on the treadmill was a good thing to do on a cold, snowy day. I did get out for a 4 and a half mile run on Sunday. The weather was in the forties and it was sunny although a little windy. It felt good to get out.
Madison registered for high school this past week. Can you believe that? I don't feel old enough to have a high schooler (probably because I was only 20 when I had her). My uncle recently sent me some pictures that he had taken of her when she was younger. I don't remember how old she was, but she looks so YOUNG! I still can't believe that she's old enough to be in high school! Time goes by too quickly.
