Happy Valentine’s Day to My Best Friend

My sweet husband,

You and I have never been big Valentine’s people. Or gift givers really.

Ever since we had kids we always say we will take a day together and go shopping and buy something for each other but it never happens. There’s never time.

And well, this Valentine’s Day feels even less lovey than the others. For starters it feels like we have spent every minute together since last Valentine’s Day. That’s a lot of time together.

It’s also -17 degrees outside right now which is making us all a little squirrelly. We are bored. The kids are wearing us down. The house is a never ending mess.

In fact right now you are scrubbing the carpet with cleaner. I can hear you cursing our toddler for rubbing toothpaste into it. You are also cursing me for asking what you were doing while he was causing such shenanigans. You didn’t appreciate that. We both know you were in the bathroom.

We also fought this morning. It was over something stupid on the news not really worth fighting over. It turned into a pissing match over who does more around here. Which is silly because we are a pretty great team if you ask me.

It’s been a day I tell ya. A year really. We need spring and a vacation and time to be adults.

I had to scroll super far back to find this photo. It was well over a year ago. How can that be? The answer is covid. And kids. And life.

The love is here though. I know it.

Because last night you got up with the baby at 2 am so I could sleep. I’m old and pregnant and that means the world to me.

And I switched out all the shower toiletries that you used up without even complaining so when you get in you will have soap and shaving cream. You know how frustrated that makes me….when I get in and everything is empty. But I also know that life is hard right now and that isn’t the mountain I want to die on.

You also put gas in my car and I buy those smelly fish snacks that you like even though I hate them. You buy me new socks and I scratch your back.

If those things aren’t love I don’t know what is.

Happy Valentine’s Day to my best friend. You make these hard days bearable. Gotta run. I see the baby found tape!

PS. Sorry about the carpet. I know that stuff bothers you more than it does me.
