Queen of Hearts

So much for  blogging more in 2011.  Oh well, you all will just appreciate me more when I do write. Right?

It has already been a busy hearts day around here.  I tend to sleep very restlessly when I know I have a lot to do in the morning.  So when at 10pm last night my son informed me of the 2 dozen rice crispy treats he had to have at school today, I knew my sleep would be short.  I arose 45 min. early, put on my Valentine shirt to make a run to the store, when I caught my cupid downstairs, just coming in from HIS early morning run to the store for flowers and chocolates.  Oh, so sweet.  Though the grocery store brand are not my favorite, I never met a man carrying chocolates that I did not like.  And they will get eaten. Every last one.



After kisses I went on my errand in my purple velor jogging suit, when I saw a very familiar profile leaving the store.  It was my dad, carrying what looked to be flowers and chocolates.  Hopefully for my mom.  After yelling across the parking lot towards what I hoped was his good ear, he heard me.  So I got another hug and kiss from a man carrying valentines.  Is this what I'm missing in the early mornings?

I came home with my marshmallows and cereal for treats when I noticed the teenagers car still home.  Hmmmm.  It should have been gone, at least an hour ago.  I went upstairs and  woke two sleeping high schoolers who had 15 min to make it to their first class.  Let's just say it did not happen.

As I  made Rice Crispy treats and five lunches, the kids discovered their Valentines on the table.

The 15 yr old observed that there was only candy and they usually got stuffed animals too.
Thanks for noticing.  You're welcome.  She got a little extra spit in her sandwich.

Treats were individually bagged and kids and valentines delivered to school.

Back at home my Valentines Day Laundry awaits as well as another trip or two to the store for the 3rd grade Valentines party.

I wish I had time to sit and eat my chocolates but there is no rest for the Queen of Hearts.

Y'think she'll notice the extra bit of spit??

Happy Valentine's Day, busy lady!! You inspire me. Well, reading about all that energy inspires me. And the spit thing inspires me. Not that I want to get the clan up and off to school. I'm done with those years!!

Thanks for smiles today!

ours was planning to be busy like that... but one coming down with a fever saved me the trip to the school to make crafts with first graders...

just a doctor, the pizza place, and the pharmacy - and then back home for a nap...

hmmm... I think she'll still be sick tomorrow... this is a good gig :)

Extra spit! REally?
You totally rock!

So funny that your hubs made the early morning run! So sweet. Maybe tomorrow you can enjoy those chocolates and put your feet up...after you finsh the peanut butter and spit sandwiches.

You are a better woman than me, 3 trips to the store in ONE day? That's almost as many times I go in a month. I hate the store. I hope you have a chance to eat your chocolates, and have some time for you...

Hey, I did the 5th grade party. And I made suckers, and multiple trips to the market, and watched every man from my ward/neighborhood carrying out a grocery store bouquet. Seems we're living parallel lives, but in different climates. Good to know we're looking at the same moon. :)

Oh, how I have missed your posts! I didn't get my supermarket chocolates this year but I plan on making a trip to the local See's for some redemption.

Next Valentines you should just try hibernating. I think it is the best plan.

The weekend before Valentines Day I decided I needed to be a good mom and make heart-shaped sugar cookies with pink frosting with my kids. The cookie-making process was so exhausting that I let the kids eat the plain cookies for Friday night dinner, and then Saturday I finally got the energy to make the frosting. They had cookies with frosting for dinner on Saturday night.

Then I saw this post:

This is what good mothers are supposed to do for their families on Valentine's morning? It made me want to cry to see this "fun" and "easy" breakfast.

I like your Valentines morning much better. :)
