Don't be a hater, yo

Oh man, all you single people are going to be soooo jealous when you hear how awesome married life is! I mean, you might be feeling like your Valentine's Day plans to go out to dinner with a group of friends or rent sappy movies and eat ice cream are lame, but wait until you hear what the Pretend Husband has planned for us. We are going to spend all of Valentine's Day... are you ready for this?.... are you sure?.... here goes... cleaning out the garage!

OK, settle down, he's mine and you can't have him. Before the PH finds out I'm mocking him on the blog, I'll be fair and tell you all that we agreed not to do anything special for Valentine's Day this year... well, except wait until all the candy goes on clearance and then stuff ourselves full of chocolate-- that's romantic, isn't it?

And the cleaning out the garage plans aren't that lame because they mean our renovation is almost over! The majority of our furniture has been stacked in the garage since our family and friends put it there on moving day and we've been living out of boxes ever since. We've been slowly moving things into the house as we finish different rooms, but this will be the last of what we need (except the kitchen stuff, but don't ask me about that unless you're ready to pick up the pieces of brain after my head explodes in frustration...)

And the best part? Cleaning all the stuff out of the garage means we'll be able to park our cars in there. No more chipping ice off the windshield, no more frozen bottles of water on the front seat, no more risking my life to skate across the driveway to my car. Yay! So, actually, I guess the PH is giving me a usable garage for Valentine's Day which, if I'm honest, is way better than flowers and a card anyway.

Sure, you tell yourself it is better than flowers, candy, diamonds!!!! As long as you convince yourself!

We don't really do Valentine's either, it is too commercial and we are too poor. Sometimes I wish we had a garage to clean out though so I can be jealous of you on that score!

Yay on hearing that the renovations are almost done! Cleaning the garage may be an unconventional way to celebrate V-Day but as long as you get to spend the day together, that's what really counts!

we don't usually celebrate the 14th - because we celebrate the 13th (it's our anniversary of being engaged!)

but in truth, you've had a big year. i think garage cleaning and left overs is a good plan :)

Funny in my mind said...

Wear something sexy under your cleaning clothes and occasionally give him a show. He will want to hurry and get done and you will only have to half of the work while he's busting his butt!

funny - you are my kind of gal.

oh but wait. the ph would be more motivated if she were packing cheeseburgers under her shirt.

i say that not to tease, but out of pure truth.
