Happy V-Day

Not Veteren’s Day fools. Valentines Day.

I was recently asked if the Boy and I were planning anything for the big day.  My response? I don’t know.  We haven’t really ever celebrated Valentines Day, (sometimes to the Boy’s peril depending on my mood) but now we’re married so maybe things will be different this year.

Have I mentioned married life rocks?! That’s right, I came home to these.

And a sushi date.  And Harry Potter (we’ve just got the last year at Hogwarts to go)

Yes, the Boy definitely definitely used his listening skills this year, despite kicking my wine over and making a Valentine’s mess

And in return?  I went to my neighbourhood Service Ontario office.

And officially became Meaghan M.  It took a motivating pep-talk to myself. But I had decided I wanted to do it. So I did it. Quick and dirty like a band-aid. I thought it would feel weird, and it does if I think about it out loud.  But what can I say – I love my Valentine*.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!






5 Fun Facts

  1. I’m a car owner! It only took 7 trips to Service Ontario to get an elusive Commissioner’s signature (she was running for election which apparently means she doesn’t have to do her job).  But I FINALLY got it transferred and after a month of visits – we’re OFFICIALLY a two car household.
  2. I’m halfway through my Christmas knitting… I think.  I seem to keep adding to my pile. How does that happen?
  3. I FINALLY finished The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.  I didn’t love it.  Without giving anything away… I liked the story about Harriet – but I don’t understand what the deal is with all of the extra stuff.  I may have to Wikipedia the plots of the next two books.  I don’t think I’ll read them. BFF Kate – what was the name of the book you wanted me to read next?
  4. My parents are leaving for Florida tomorrow.  We’re looking after the dog… he’s currently sick… with diarrhea… really looking forward to it.  Gross.
  5. The Boy and I are heading back to Del Boca Vista in sunny Florida in 1 week – wish we were leaving tomorrow.  Alas Earwax.

Happy Thursday!
