A kiss is but a kiss...
We've gone from THIS
and we are still happy after all these years. Valentine's Day just happened to be our 20th wedding anniversary. Yesterday was memorable. I was covered in body fluids. Oh what a day. It started with a sweet good morning kiss from my honey, and continued all day.
A little girl hacked and coughed in my face, a snot-nosed little boy sneezed a string of green snot at me. A little guy who was over tired slobbered all over me as I rocked him to sleep. I asked my aide to take the children to the playroom. I heard noise in the bathroom and found a little boy, bottoms up, bent over the toilet trying to clean up a MESS that was smeared everywhere, so I wiped up the messes. ALL of them.
I called my honey on the way home and said, "You know I love you, right? I've partied all day, a.m. class and p.m. class had Valentine's Parties. I'm exhausted. I'm pulling into the drive way, so hop in the car." We ate at a buffet and came back home. I laid down on the couch to watch the news.
Here's the news: I woke up the day after our anniversary, at 12:05 a.m. a cover lovingly draped over me. I came to bed and apologized. We made plans for Monday, a day off school. We will go on a long drive to do some eagle viewing across the river in Alton, Illinois and we'll have a nice meal and take pictures along the way.
We aren't simple. It's just the simple things in life that still make us happy.
