The fancy-schmancy restaurant my wife likes was all booked up for tonight (Feb 14) when I called for a reservation last week, so we went out for our Alentine's dinner last night (Feb 13)instead. I always love going out for dinner, and dressing up for a fancy place every once in awhile is fun too, so I didnt mind the big bill too much.

Luckily for me my wife is a cheapskate, so she told me not to get her anything else besides the dinner. She even got upset when I told her I bought her a Boston College t-shirt online as her gift.

Someone in my mom's work office gave her 25 bucks wroth of gift certificates for Cineplex theatres. Problem is; nearest theatre for my mom to go to is an hour away. So she gave them to me to use with my girlfriend, which is a sweet deal (my unemployment means we don't go out much).


So the plan is to take her out to see a movie and probably get her a scented candle or something.

I made my girlfriend lunch today and instead of cubing all of the tofu I cut one chunk into a vaguely heart-like shape.

My girlfriend teaches until 8pm tonight, so she'll see flowers on her desk when she gets home.

We went out Saturday night to "celebrate" with a modest dinner at a restuarant she enjoys, but that's about it. We're both a bit too busy to make a big deal out of Valentine's Day.

MY original plans were for us to go out this past weekend. Babysitter fell through, but I gave Mrs. rinberg a box of chocolates and a card anyways. Today, Valentine's Day, I stopped by her workplace before she got there and left flowers for her. HOPEFULLY, this coming weekend we'll try again for the night out. For us that usually means dinner & a movie. Just being able to sit through a movie without 3 trips to the bathroom and 10 questions per hour is awesome.

Heh, I just got up, I'm working for five and three-quarter hours, and then Mom and I will probably go to a restaurant after I get off work.

My girlfriend works with me ...

So I swiped her car keys this morning, and got approval to leave at noon for a couple hours. Went out shopping for various Women Body Things That Smell Like Stuff, massage oils (to be used on ME for being so generous for having bought it), flowers, candy, da works - AND picked up some fresh fish from LaPointe's (best fish in Ottawa) which I will make for dinner with wine.

With any luck, my present will be delivered after dinner. Assuming the oils don't give her a headache.

Normally I am not someone who does things for V-day.

That said...my GF has put up with 9 months of me being a basket case when I have bad weeks playing poker. She's seen me put more than one hole in my wall after some donkey hangs around with bottom pair because "he had a feeling."

So when I had a very good week last week and made a hefty cashout, I decided to treat her to a special night.

If we're still together next Feb. 14 it's pizza and movies, but for one time, I'll go the cheeseball route.

We have an exciting day planned. My wife is working late covering a government meeting for the paper. My daughter is playing in the pep band for the game and our Lions club is taking tickets. After 25 years of marriage we are okay with it.

I'll be heading home soon to cook dinner for the wife & kids - give cards & chocolate hearts to everyone - read bedtime stories to the kids and then watch the Olympics with my wife

Nothing spectacular or really that much out of the ordinary...

My beloved came to town for the massive snowstorm, which was romantic enough after she came to terms with missing a day's work.

So we pounded out her essay for her applications (she's seeking her second Master's) and then had a lovely salmon dinner I prepared.

There was also, obviously, much cuddling done, as 200 miles tends to keep that from happening.

A whole lot of work for me, not so much for her. But we went out yesterday to get obscenely expensive Jeritron 5000's chocolate-covered strawberries, and I gave her the set of Valentine's day Bearistas (Starbucks bears).

I ate a bunch of chocolates that someone else got at work and didn't want. They were really good.

Also, I sent my wife flowers, candy and a stuffed bear.

I texted my wife "you too" after she texted me "Happy Valentines day" because I'm in Mexico and she's in Michigan. That pretty much sums up our great plans. Then again, I wouldn't have done much more if we were in the same area code.

I picked up a Cold Stone Creamery ice cream cake on the way home, presented it to Wife #1 and wished her a happy Valentine's day.

"But I didn't get you anything!" she said.

"Well that goes without saying," I said.

WOW did that get a surprised look on her face.

Mighty tasty cake, though. Smiling Counter Girl said they had a huge (and sort of unexpected) run on cakes through the day. "Guys have been picking them up all day."

It cost almost as much as our last dinner out...and that was at Red Lobster. But they put it in a really cool huge red sack, Wife #1 was almost as impressed with it as she was with the cake itself.

I also made some excellent steaks.

I have to say I was shocked at how many women got flowers at the office today. I held the door open for probably a half dozen delivery guys myself...and I'm hardly ever near our entrance.

The wife and kids wanted me to take them too Pizza Hut for Valentine's Day dinner.....so who am I to go and deny their request.

I used to always get my wife a big heart shaped box of chocolate, but she told me to stop last year because she gets a ton of candy as it is from the elementary school children that she teaches. So instead I took her out clothing shopping and let her pick out a $100 worth of clothes.
