gentle reader, yes, i know.
this post subject is a tad bit late.
but that's the way it's rollin' around here.
too many irons in the fire and not enough people to man those irons!
not complaining...just relating.
i am not the woman that begs for flowers, chocolates and/or diamonds for valentine's day.
i don't think i ever have been.
when muscle barbie was little, i remember getting her a gift and a card.
but kiroman and i have never really fallen into the trap of valentine's day.
heck, every day is valentine's day for us.
who the hell needs a date on the calendar, marked with a red heart, to show the one you love that you love them?
isn't that something you should be doing every.single.day?
i thought so.
come on...valentine's day is far too commercialized to sell cards, chocolate and flowers.
which in turn makes so many of us feel unloved and inadequate.
ok. enough of that.
let's get on with the fun stuff.
first...kiroworld moved into new space starting thursday before v-day night. we worked until midnight! but got so much done...then we were back at it friday morning until10:30ish. and again saturday morning...but we drew the line early so everyone could go enjoy some family time.
kirofamily headed to the hockey game!
it had been two weeks since the lancers played at home.
to say we were ready for some ice time is an understatement!
i don't think i've posted one of these yet this season.
i have this weird tradition...first intermission is a shoe shot. this has been going on for several seasons now.
this shot was taken by kiroman. it's a little tradition that he started this season with the official lancer photographer...the one and only robb brouillette. this happens at the second intermission. and it has to a blue steel pose. this particular night was pink the rink. instead of chucking the puck, fans chucked the duck. so it's perfect that blue steel duck lips were kissing a duck bill, right?
man, i love having fun!
even though i may not post the shoe and selfie pics, there are taken every single game.
yes, i'm ocd like that.
i know i said previously in this post that we aren't mushy v-day people at our house.
muscle barbie was with a friend that was v-day shopping for her boyfriend so she [muscle barbie] decided to do a little shopping for her mom and dad.
awwww...how sweet is she?
why, she is very very very sweet!
i'm tellin ya, gentle reader...this girl rocks!
i mean...if you are the mom of a daughter, you will know what i'm talking about.
getting through those pre-teen and teen age years and then the young adult stage hits. and there are so many feelings that flood each of you.
one trying to assert herself and one trying to guide.
one giving advice and one taking it at will.
one crying and having a temper tantrum and one comforting.
and ya want to know something?
those roles flip flop at will.
i know there are those that say you shouldn't be friends with your children.
and i will say there is a time and place for that.
and once those children are grown and out of the house, why the hell can't you be friends with them?
eh, that's for another day!
on sunday, our niece turned 5. her chucky cheese party was slated at 4pm.
with the move and all that needed to be done, i asked if it was ok to skip the party but go by their house earlier to celebrate.
and that's exactly what we did.
after that stop, it was a stop at another brother's house.
so that pretty much sums up my valentine's weekend.
i hope you all enjoyed the weekend in whatever manner suits you and yours...as long as it was moral, ethical and legal ;)
- for a fabulous family weekend
- for how awesome the move to the new space went
- for all the help we had moving into the new space
- to be able to celebrate with my niece
- for getting to see all my brothers in one afternoon
just breathing isn't living!
