Aaaaaah… ye ol’ Valentines Day…. the “day for love”. Hmm…. um… yeah… whatever! EVERY day is a day for love as far as I’m concerned. I’m not going to wait until the commercially-designated day arrives to shower my Mrs. in hugs and kisses! *hey… that rhymed! I’ll do it every day in many ways! *ok, I’m being a poet and don’t even know it! haha
So… what did Maggie and I do Valentines Day instead of roses, candy and dinner? Well… I met her down at a Health Fair she was working for nursing school and I let her jab a needle into my finger, give me a complete cholesterol test, and then check my blood pressure. Who says romance is all about schmoop?! Hehe…:-)
I wonder if they have a V-day card for something like this? Haha!
ps- Good news is… I didn’t cry like a baby when getting my finger pricked (yay!) AND my cholesterol is down 55 POINTS!!!! since my last test back in October (woohoo!) *it was wicked high due to stress a year ago so I’m happy it’s now only 144…. back to normal. :-)
