Today is Valentine’s Day. My man’s daughter had already told him that he needed to get home right after work because she had a surprise for him, so I made plans to work all day, then make myself some poached salmon for dinner. After that, I was going to get to bed early for a change. Didn’t happen.
My man calls me every morning at 5:30 when he’s on his way to work. Sometimes I’m awake because I’ve been working all night, but sometimes I talk to him when I’m half asleep. Today was one of the latter days. I got to sleep around 1 AM, so at 5:30, I still wasn’t ready to be awake. He was annoying the hell out of me…asking me if I walked the dogs yet. Telling me to get up and walk the dogs. I finally dragged my tired ass out of bed, got into some sweats and got the leashes on. I got outside and there was my guy! He took the day off so he could spend the day with me, yet still be home after work to spend time with his daughter.
He brought me chocolate covered strawberries and a card. Once the dogs were walked and I got into some real clothes, we went to breakfast. After that, he fixed my washer, then we took a nap. The poor guy works so hard and he hardly ever gets a chance to just relax and do nothing, so that’s what we did for a couple of hours. We were all napped out, so we went out for lunch. We hung out for a bit, then he left for home and his daughter. All in all, it was a good day.
This was totally unexpected. I don’t really do Hallmark holidays, so this was something different for me. It was a nice different, though.
I may not have worked all day and I didn’t have my poached salmon, but I can STILL get my ass to bed early!!!! Happy Valentine’s Day, all!
