Happy Valentine's Day! (a day late)

I hope everyone had a nice Valentine's Day. We've been pretty busy lately (and pinching our pennies) because: 1) Son #3's birthday party is Saturday, and 2) we leave for vacation on Sunday, so we didn't make a big deal over Valentine's Day. We did exchange cards and he bought me some beautiful roses.

Yesterday, Son #3 and I were running errands (buying suitcases for said vacation) - since weren't very far from Dear Hubby's office, we decided to meet for lunch at a quasi-fast food Mexican place.

I teach religion class to the 4th graders on Wednesday night, so we didn't make any evening plans. If it weren't for our trip, we would've probably gone out to dinner, just the two of us. And, not the "thrill is gone", but after 17 years of marriage - and 21 Valentine's Day spent together - it just isn't a big a thing as it used to be, you know? Of course, if he had forgotten, that would be an entirely different story! (Highly unlikely, though. If anyone would forget, it'd probably be me.)

Going off topic here: as you know I just switched to the new Blogger and I have comment moderation turned on. I thought I may have offended someone on another blog, but apparently no one was paying attention - not that I'm complaining. Well, Blogger does save the comments for me to moderate, but two comments to my last post did NOT appear after I selected them and clicked "publish." What's up with that?

I'll post tomorrow, and then take a hiatus for 9 or 10 days. When I return, if I see that's it's safe to do so, I'll turn off the comment moderation.

I hope you have a great time on your trip. I look forward to all the cool pictures you'll post and the stories you'll tell when you get back.

Yeah, I had that happen a couple of times when I did the moderation thing. So I just went back to not having it. You didn't offend me for what it's worth. hehe =)

I hate it when comments disappear. Drives me crazy and blogger is bad for it.

Glad you had a good V day.

Have a good trip

Hi, jen, no we haven't told them. We're driving there so we'll see how long it takes them to figure it out!

JBM, we're really looking forward to it. It's apparently a popular destination for Louisianians looking to escape Mardi Gras. Everywhere I go, I overhear at least one person talking out their trip.

Thanks, anna, I generally try NOT to be offensive (doesn't always work....), but my comment was directed at anyone who's blog I follow. On person made a comment on another blog I read and I couldn't just let it go. Apparently, it didn't even register though b/c it doesn't seem this person made his way here.
BTW, I thought about you the other day, I opened TV Guide and they have an ad for personalized M&M's and one of them said Anna Banana!

lala, I've been having trouble with all the posts appearing. Trust me, though, I'm not rejecting your comments (and I wouldn't even if you disagreed with something I wrote, b/c I trust that we can all disagree and still be respectful).

tracey, this is our first real family vacation in almost 5 years. I don't count hurricane evacuations. :-)
