2013 has been The Year of the Blog. I’m pretty sure that was option #2 on the Chinese Calendar just behind Year of the Snake, but lost by a mere handful of votes. See? Every vote counts.
Anyway, it has been The Year of the Blog for me because I have started following some awesome blogs- some newbies, some seasoned and professional writers. Not only have I spit coffee (or margaritas) on my laptop screen but I have also learned what good writing looks like and am slowly but surely learning to hone my craft a bit- you can thank me later.
If you have time today, go visit a few of them. Not only will you laugh your socks off (or spew coffee out your nose) but you’ll feel a bit more “normal” when you see that we are all living similarly insane yet blessed lives. I’ve put some links down below to a few you might like.
recognize talent when I see it and want to become a better person by modeling their behavior am a sheep who follows without question, I saw that most of my new Bloggy Friends are posting Valentine’s Day messages today. Gotta be honest, I wasn’t planning on doing one. I think you read enough about my trips to Target for groceries, household items and negligees. But, again, I’m a sheep-like young woman *coughcough* so I figured I should jump on this bandwagon.
Sadly, though, I have nothing to say. As I type this I have one child on Day #2 of Amoxicillin for Strep and the other laying in my bed with a constant flood of clear snot draining from his nose. I don’t think we will be rallying for a last minute trip to Target for panties. I could probably use a red Sharpie to color some toilet paper, do some ninja-origami-like maneuvering and tie it around myself if I put my mind to it. I mean does Hubs really need anything but ME as a Valentine’s Day gift? I think not.
Although today I don’t have much to illustrate my love other than some pink suspension oral medication from our pediatrician and a mountain of Kleenex, I have been full of the love in the past. So, I will do 3 things with this post:
1. Link you to past love posts I’ve written
2. Link you to authors who have non-contagious love to share today
3. Give you a glimpse of the VDay love I received from the kids… aside from germs
Past Posts ‘o Love by Yours Truly:
This one has nakedness
This one is kinda naughty
This one’s really Knotty
Food can be sexy
OK, this one is kinda sweet and lovey
Last year’s VDay post
A Nooner- need I say more?
So those are a just a few to keep you entertained as you sit and day dream about your Other Half and pine away the hours until he or she comes home so you can have a quiet, candlelit dinner and talk about your feelings for one another. Or… You can read them while you avoid working because who really wants to work on a holiday, right?
But before I leave you, I want to share the love Hubs and I received this morning.
The card the boys made for Hubs:
Sweet, right? I listened to the boys work together downstairs while they wrote this for him. It was pretty cute as they came up with the perfect wording. There’s a lot of love and gratitude and cuteness oozing out of this little note. And it has 2 lollipops taped to the bottom. So cute!
Here’s the card I got. They each gave me the same one because they made it at church. They did a great job of hiding it. I had no idea! My card…
