I get kinda silly when I think about it. Although Phillip and I have been married for a little more than 2 years, we’ve actually been together for 5 years, having our first day on my birthday. Yep, had my birthday with a total stranger and never let him go. We’ve had great times, sad times, trying times and blessed times, but we’ve never had bad times. I’m a very lucky man.
Valentine’s Day is pretty normal around here. When you get down to it, we’re not very fussy people, don’t require a huge production, and rest easy on the simple. For instance, our idea of chocolates will be a bag of M&M’s, flowers will be the hibiscus outside our window, and a romantic evening would be ordering a pizza, turning out the lights, and laughing by the glow of the television set.
But, five years on, I want to do something a little more special for my man, because five years is a long time of uninterrupted adoration and love. Maybe instead of pizza we’ll do his favorite, fried chicken. Maybe I’ll have it all set up so that when he comes home from work at the wee hours of the morning, the house will be tidy, the couch will be plumped up with pillows, I’ll have his favorite anime waiting and all he has to do is sit back and bask in the love.
So, I’m selling this little panda and the Madam’s afghan to gather up a few extra dollars for a really special night. (Someone out there is asking how fried chicken can be a special night? Simple, it’s his favorite and we don’t get to do that often). With his schedule, we only get about 2 hours a night together. So, some time alone, just the two of us, enjoying those two hours the best we can is magical. So, if I can sell the panda and/or the afghan I’ll be able to give Phillip a really special Valentine’s Day.
The Madam’s afghan is nearly done. I’m already at 4.5 feet squared with another foot and a half to go (still wanna add more purple and green at the end to tie the wild colors together). If you’d like to have it, click here. And the little panda can be had by clicking here.
I hope you all have a wonderful valentine’s day, and if you’re not celebrating with anyone, grab some fried chicken, slap yourself in front of the TV, watch something silly and spend the evening with us in spirit!
