Happy Valentine's Day AND Happy Birthday Aaron!


Happy Valentines!
Today is a special day, for 2 reasons! Of course, it's Valentine's Day! I got several wonderful gifts from my sweetie. The best one was him getting a load going right through here on his way to Tulsa. He arrived last night. Steven also sent me a funny Valentine in the mail AND some beautiful flowers to me at school. And then this evening we went out to dinner - with Aaron - but out nonetheless. I got him a new calculator, some great mesh storage bags for the truck, a Kung Fu movie, and a mushy card. It's been a good day.


Today is a very special day for another reason: my baby Aaron turned 9 this morning at 8:40 AM. We started the day by me running to Dunkin Donuts for his favorite long johhs. Then, I gave him permission to play on the computer and/or video game systems as much as he wants today (he usually has a limit of 1 hour a day). He had played himself into a computer coma by lunchtime!!!

Then, at 2 this afternoon we headed down to our brand-new YMCA for his birthday swim party. About 15 kids - my 2 nephews and a bunch of boys and girls from his 3rd grade class - first went swimming for a hour then feasted on cake and ice cream. A good time was had by all and Aaron is definitely set for a shopping trip to Target, having received a 3rd grader's treasure trove of cash and gift cards.





So Happy Birthday to my special boy!

And Happy Valentine's Day to all of you!
