We have come, I think, to my penultimate Valentine’s Day blog post!

We’ll see how well I stick to that one. Like just today, in fact. Yesterday we had a snow day. It was the perfect school storm – starting around 9:00am and tapering off around 3:00pm. It’s like the snow specifically wanted us to NOT go to school. Ok. Done. We didn’t go to school! Then last night with the freezing rain, sleet, rain, and all around ice rink of a town, we got the call that today would be a 2-hour delay. So I’m losing steam a bit. I can’t lie. Luckily, we kept busy yesterday. And how!

This project is simple. My mom works with fleece and fleece scraps so often. This is easy to make, easy to teach, and easy enough to play. Although I can always tell when I haven’t gotten enough sleep, because the kids beat me fair and square!

And I owe you two more Valentine’s Day stories, don’t I? Yes. Yes, I do. This one is a good one. As you may know from my 20 part story, Cassidy and I had a whirlwind, cross-country, summer romance and then broke up for two years. After we had found each other again, we knew pretty soon in that we had to be together, geographically too. It was a big risk and a gamble and MUCH harder than I thought it would be. Like, worlds harder. It was hard also to be away from each other. We tried to see each other at least once a month before I moved out there in April, but that was taxing financially and physically. We sometimes went months without seeing each other. And that was pretty awful until he fulfilled an old dream.

He had always wanted to fly 3,000 miles to surprise me at work, but that got messed up after our terrible breakup. So this was Relationship 2.0 and it was bigger and better than ever. It was a gloomy February day and he called me, from what I thought was California, but then I came in from lunch break at my NJ office and he was in the stairwell! The freakin’ stairwell! Commence hugging/kissing. The ultimate grand gesture. We didn’t have a lot of time, but we made it count.

And no, not by doing crafts. The above photo is just long paragraph filler! haha.. doing crafts with Cassidy. hahahaha! Anyway, the joke is on me, because now we do crafts together all the time. It’s just that we usually do them WITH the kids:
