Valentine's Week

I think my family is glad that Valentine's Week is almost over.  Yes, week.  Why celebrate only one day when you have a whole week?  And the one day thing is mush gushy, lovey dovey for me anyway.  Might as well make it a family love celebration and avoid that romantic hoopla.

Each morning and evening I forced them to eat off the good dishes, by candlelight.  Each morning had a surprise food or gift as well.

You might have thought I'd asked them to eat blindfolded with a clothespin on the nose and their hands tied behind their backs.

Oh well.  It's one of those things they're going to thank me for someday.

Someday a long, long, long time from now.

I can wait.
