Poor Woman's Valentine's

Thank you all for your well wishes. Sorry I have been gone all weekend but when your sick it's hard to be creative. Joe surprised and TOTALLY FLOORED me when he announced Sunday that he had taken the day off for me to get better. And I slept pretty much the whole day. I am doing much better today. I even had the DRIVE to sanitize my house! And that is what I did. Swiffered floors, scrubbed and cleansed bathrooms, wiped down walls with Clorox wipes and did all bedding and sprayed them with Lysol. And I hate the smell of Lysol... but desperate times call for DESPERATE measures! Hopefully with all the antibiotics and disinfectant we will be better for all the birthday's coming up. Valentines and 4 b-days in one week! Wheew.

After spending 5 hours wiping down my house I was in the mood for some creativity and since our funds are small this year I decided to make crafts with the kids.

We used construction paper, glitter, glue and pens.
Then we used tape and thread and hung some of the hearts from the ceiling. We made a 'Hallway of Love'....

We had tons of fun and talked and laughed.... It should be interesting to see Joe's face when he gets home from work!
(Addition- Joe thought it was cute and that we did a good job.)

And I just have to share this with you too....

I found out where the new Star Wars Rebel base is today.....

Happy Monday!
