Valentine Swap

I am finding myself without a Valentine for the second year in a row.

Actually that is not accurate in the least.  I have 3 valentine's.  And they are freakin' adorable.  But I can't eat the homemade cards they give me {but they are some of my most treasured possessions so don't think I'm a heartless cad} and they can't drive so that rules out buying chocolates at the store.

The one valentine I have who can drive is a bit pre-occupied at the moment and come to think of it he's missed more then the last two.... 

So that brings me to my idea.  For the first time in a couple years I didn't host the ornament swap.  That made me sad.  But I was getting ready for an awesome family vacation in Disney World so that made me happy.

My idea is to do a Valentine Swap! If you are interested please leave a comment so I can see if there is any interest.  It will be a $10 limit and there are no real guidelines, just let your Valentine Sprit take you where it wants and get your Valentine to your partner by V-day.  I like simple things and that seems pretty simple.

Spread the word and lets spread the cheer!

Ummm, hey.  How's it going?

It's been so long since I've been on here that I couldn't even remember how to get onto this thing to put up a post. That speaks volumes doesn't it?

I could do the whole long winded update thing but if you are on twitter {and if you're not why aren't you} and if you follow me {again, why aren't you if you aren't?} then you know all the boring details of my life.  You're up to date on my Nyquil hangover, we survived a 7 mth deployment, that I'll lose my mind if they touch my commissary, both older boys played football and despite having to marry the sport it was fabulous and the uniforms are adorable, we just started another deployment but only for 3mths however dwell time is there for a reason and only having 6 mths between the last one and this one makes me feel like we are trekking up the Himalayas.  Naked.

Oh and we found a hidden mickey puddle at the mall the other day. 

Not making the best case for perhaps coming back on blogger am I?

I miss writing.

I miss having thoughts that are longer then 140 characters. 

I miss reading other blogs and having that community of other bloggers.

I miss you all.
