On this beautiful day for lovers we bring you a plethora of goodies.
But before that, let me tell you a tale of a whirlwind romance that has changed my perspective forever. So sit back, start your downloads, and listen to my tale.
And also to everyone who stops by our little corner of the world, happy valentine's day! A completely NOT made-up for Hallmark purposes holiday. That we reserve for Christmas. (I kid, I kid...)
[Friday, Feb. 4th]
After a long week of brutal winter storms and overall nasty weather, we get home to realize that there was no hot water in the entire house. My husband quickly turns on the stove, just to check if the gas is off, and the fire ignites. We think there must be some problem with the pipes, but since it's so late there's no one we can call, so we decide to skip all hot water activities (aka baths) for the night and we'll deal with it the next morning.
After putting all the ingredients together to make my oh-so-awesome homemade apple-y cinnamon rolls (I'm talking completely handmade - no Pillsbury for me!) I go to put it into the oven, only to realize there's no heat...!!
Okay. This is obviously a gas problem. My hubby pays the bill and we figure that it'll be turned on on Monday.
By Sunday I'm starting to feel a bit funky. I haven't had a real shower since Thursday night. I try to tell myself, it's like camping and this will soon all pass. (Just so you won't think I'm completely disgusting, we had been talking quick/spit baths, but its too 'effin cold to take a full-blown shower.) But Monday just doesn't feel like it will come soon enough.
The day has arrived!!!
(end of day) No one has come to fix the gas. =.=
Called the gas company to
yell at someone fix the whole situation and am assured that someone will be out the next day to fix the gas.
[Wednesday - the day of the love affair]
In he walks, all six foot two, and pulls out his tools and quickly gets to work. In on time at all it's all fixed and in his deep reassuring manly voice asks if there is anything else that I need help with...
And then it happened. I've never felt so enveloped and complete before. A few times during the two hours that we were together I had to stop and think is this really real?! There wasn't a place on my whole body that wasn't caressed by that warm embrace. I realized that there has never been anyone or anything that felt so right, like finally this was the piece of the puzzle that had been missing in my life.
But of course all things must come to an end. I started feeling dizzy, hot, and overall just tired of standing. Suddenly something that was so perfect only moments before, I couldn't wait to be done with.
So I shut it off, and although I have enjoyed every shower I have had thereafter, I haven't had one that has felt as amazing.
I hope you all enjoy your lovey-dovey holiday and appreciate every drop of hot water you have. ;)
