I actually baked last night. I did have to throw away one batch of brownies. I used old vegetable oil in the one batch. Anyone else ever done that? And they were disgusting! But still, I baked.
And I spent two hours putting together tiny little Winnie the Pooh and Glee Valentine's for 60 of my students.
I have loved Valentine's Day for as long as I remember.
- Having my face turn bright red when my boyfriend (Mr. GG) shows up during 2nd period with flowers. (3 years ago)
- Having Mr. GG, now husband show up with lunch from Panera (my favorite) and alcohol free sparkling wine and little plastic champagne glasses! (that was last year)
- And yesterday a huge vase of roses showed up for me : ). Yes, a day early.
But I also take care of my single friends. One in particular is quite depressed about being 32 and single. I got her a card (from my dog) and coffee before school today, then sent her other cheesy Valentines at other points throughout the day. And since Mr. GG is not home until 7:30 tonight, we'll go get some nice red wine at happy hour this evening.
So even if you hate today, and if you do I bet you didn't read this post anyway, I want to wish you a Happy Valentine's Day. I love you!! (I really do.)
