Whats love got to do with it

Well, I decided I did not want to go do Karaoke on Valentines Day, rather stay in my city and wallow in my self pitty and use all my anti ageing shit I have been forced to purchase...

I have this dog...she aint much to write home about, I have had her 3 years, got her from the puppy mill when she was a tot...

Now mind you, my dog has lived here long enough to know what goes on here. She knows when she sees the vacume to take cover...She normally jumps on the couch and hides under a pillow, because thats how she rolls.

SHe knows what the vacume sounds like, I mean in the years she has been alive, she musta heard it at least 3 or 4 times........

Anyway, I turn it on and the inbred pisses on my carpet RIGHT in front of me...

Never in my life has she piddled in front of me, I did what any good momma would do..I kicked her.

So after me and the hubs romatic dinner at the Mexican joint we go hand in hand to Walmart to rent a carpet cleaner, because holy shit, I cant walk on the carpet now..no bloody way.

~
two of my tots had to make Valentine boxes 4 school..As a kid I LOVED this..I would spend hours upon hours making mine, taking all the time a serious engineer would take to skillfully craft a rocket ship...

My boo is incomptent , I mean little, to make her own, so I do it 4 her...WHich is ok, because as a tot I loved this shit...Well after gluing and places hundreds of paper hearts and heart shaped candies on the box, I was dreading my next box, which was the boys.

he was entering in the 5th grade contest..

we were going to do most colorful, because im a chick and I know colors..

While he was at school I prepared the box so when he got home he could add his personal touch to it...

I had every color of tissue paper u can think of, it was so colorful a blind man could see it with his sunglasses on...it was hawt..

He comes home and looks at it and says..

mom, there is some stiff competion at school, and well, I know u meant well, but this isnt going to win me anything, i mean I dont want to hurt your feeling because I know you worked hard on it.....blah blah..

I told him it was much too late to come up with anything better....He then told me not to worry about it and he would take care of everything..

He grabs a big shoe box, tin foil, caps from water bottles, toilet paper rolls, contruction paper, markers and tape and heads to the dinner room where he spent hours creating his masterpiece...

Just before bed he calls me in to the room to it...

OMG.....it was some sort of robot thingy....it was huge....it was busy...

it was awesome..

I told him he would never win most colorful....sorry dude...

he said he was going 4 most creative or most effort....

he came home from school beaming.....his box was falling to pieces by days end, but damnit, he won top prize, the most coveted of all Valentine Box contests...

Most Incredible..

Hell yeah bitches...hes a winner...he's specail..

cant pass math, but damnit, he can build a Valentine Box unlike any other.

Well the mr has that twinkle in his eye...Guess I best go give him mouth to mouth.

oh man you should have taken a picture of the box. too cool.

so i actually got a dozen roses!! can you believe that? i really wanted to get laid. then here is what the card said:

the front: a love story for my wife
once upon a time there were two sweethearts who promised to love each other happily ever after till they died (cute right) then it said so they did (died) then these, like, flower or bushes or something grew up and the birds came and stuff they end (so i am thinking what the hell kinda card is this)

the inside said:kinda makes you wanna have sex doesn't it!!!

I"m glad he won a prize! Whoo hoo.

I'm going to ignore the part about you kicking your dog. It's okay to kick the hub or the tots but never the pets :P

Flip Flop Momma said...

Patti,

I just choked her:)

~Deb said...

I'm with Southern Sage, where's the photo???

That's great that he won! And you doubted him??? lol

Walmart carpet cleaners? They any good? I have to get something to clean my carpets and I don't want one of those costly professionals ripping me off.

Hope you're doing good and that you and hubby at a fantastic Valentine's Day!

Yarn Tails said...

Hey there! We made it. Yes I brought my warm woolies with me. Damn it is cold here! Some parts on the way up here didnt look like it got alot of snow. We are heading over to Rosemount first thing in the morning to see my friend AJ at the yarn store that she works at and then we will be heading back this way to the mall. I will email ya.

Hope you can come over!

Emma Sometimes said...

awesome. good for the boy!!

Valentines was uneventful, but we do it that way on purpose. I get flowers on Groundhog's Day, Veteran's Day and President's Day. We figure, flowers are cheap and it's easy to buy presents. haha! Monday, I'm getting flowers and a nice dinner.

Scarlet said...

Your son is so cool. I like the way he took the initiative and let you down easy. Smoooothe. :) Unlike his dad, right? ...Just kidding there, Mr. Shaky.

Congrats to your little man!

Janell said...

First of all, you have my sympathy for the dog causing you to have to spend even a moment of your V. Day at the dreaded walmart! Not pretty, not pretty at all.

You really cracked me up with the vacuum being run 3-4 times in 3 years. What a hoot!

I love your kids. Can I pretend to be their grandma? I don't have any grands, yet. I'm so proud of The Boy and his award winning box.

Cliff said...

You make me smile BB. Thanks.

Jamie Dawn said...

Hooray for his big win!!!
Most Incredible, huh? That's awesome!

You've run your vacuum four or five times?
Wow. You keep a super clean house!
Poor doggie. You scared the pee right out of him by turning on that vacuum.

I hope you had a Lovey Dovey Valentine's Day.

Doozie said...
