Valentine's day

Yesterday was very nice but tiring. Jeff is in a wonderful workout mode. However, this means many early mornings. I'm not a good sleeper so when Jeff gets up, I usually am awake as well and can't go back to sleep.

So the alarm went off around 3:30am because he had to work at 5:30am. He wished me a Happy Valentine's Day. I tried my best to fall asleep but I couldn't. I tossed and turned. Jeff came back, got ready for work and left. I played on my phone and tried to will myself to sleep. Didn't happen. I heard Laura wake up at 6:30 but she went to the bathroom and back to bed.

Finally we all got up and Laura dressed cute for valentines day. Her class had a party and she was so excited. After Donna and I dropped her off, we stopped at Dunkin donuts then home.

As I was writing, the door bell rang and it was flowers, a vase, and chocolate. It was from Jeff. They were beautiful tulips and still budding. The colors are red, pink and white. He said that he didn't want ordinary flowers but something special.

After I picked up Laura, we came home and we read her class Valentines. She liked seeing the different cards and candy. We had lunch, read books and then started to get ready.

I bought a Groupon for $16 at picture people and it was about to expire. So when Jeff came home from work, we got all dressed up and left. Donna curled my hair. Laura and I wore red sweater dresses and Jeff wore a red sweater. We looked good, I admit.

I gave Jeff and Laura their gifts. I got Jeff 2 pairs of gym shorts, a few funny boxers and a lion. I got Laura odds and ends at the dollar store (mainly art supplies.) They both liked it.

Laura and Jeff weren't thrilled about going to get picturesbut did it for me. I hate getting my picture taken because cerebral palsy makes me smile weird when I try to smile. We did end up with a decent family picture though.

With the Groupon, you could only pick one pose so Jeff bought one of Laura by herself.

I ordered take out from Bob Evans and we had turkey, stuffing, corn and rolls. Jeff and I were so tired that we were laughing at everything! Laura thought we were crazy. Overall, it was a great day. I
