Here it is almost Valentine’s Day and I’m not prepared. We don’t normally make too big a deal out of this holiday, preferring to celebrate Valentine’s Day every day by our actions. Isn’t that just too sweet? Well, it’s true. Devoted Spouse always tells me how much he loves me and I don’t ever want to take that for granted!
I thought about fixing him a nice meal – but then again I’d have to do it one-handed since the right hand isn’t strong enough for using sharp instruments just yet. I might end up like the Saturday Night Live skit w/Julia Child spurting blood everywhere – that’s not very romantic. He’d have to make do with a peanut butter sandwich and he’d probably be quite happy with that. Devoted Spouse is not a gourmet kinda guy. It would be nice for him to make me a special meal, but, in this last painful month he’s been making ALL the meals, and every one has been special.
Maybe I’ll try to make a card for him — should be an interesting event – a lady in a sling using paints and rubber stamps – what a recipe for disaster.
I think we should skip the cards and candy and nonsense this year and just realize how blessed we are and leave it at that. We can do the candlelight meal and wine when I’m not in a sling and off the drugs. Nothing says romance like a sling, ya know?
