Happy Valentine’s Day!

It’s Valentine’s Day and I’m secluded at home. I went to the Dr. yesterday with both of my arm cover in a red, itchy rash. It’s a virus maybe I catch it at the school or at home. The Dr. says is airborne and the kids carry this virus as a dormant virus. I’m lucky it’s not contagious, however it’s uncomfortable. It hurts and it’s desperately itchy. The Dr. prescribes a steroid and Benadryl to stop the madness. Those are the exact words my Dr. says to me. It was actually pretty funny when she saw my arms and looking at me, she says, “what the heck?” I’ve to be out of school for the next two days in case it gets worse. So here I am at my home bored and thinking another Valentine Day at the house. We were planning to go to Olive Garden. Also, it makes me think it’s over 10 years we don’t have a romantic dinner at a restaurant.

I supposed I’ll prepare dinner and unfortunately, I can’t have any wine. That’s a bummer! My husband will bring flowers and my favorite chocolate candies.

To everyone who celebrate Valentine’s Day, the day of love and friendship, have a marvelous day with lots and lots of love. Remember, Valentine’s Day should be celebrated everyday and recognize the people who we love and care.

I express my love to my kids and grandkids in different ways and my favorite is texting emojis with hearts. Yesterday, I went to pick up my grandkids from school. As soon they enter the car I ask how was their day, if they have homework, and “I love you”. However, when I went to pick up my oldest she’s in middle school, her reaction a typical teen. Like any girl of her age, she grumbles, looks tired, and rolls her eyes. So, when I ask regarding her day, this is her response “same as every day grandma and I know you love me. Don’t need to tell me”.

I kept quiet and turn on the radio. My other two grandkids who remain in the back of the car immediately say “we love you, grandma”. I smile and we switch the conversation to something else.

My oldest since she turns 13 she’s quieter, grumpy, and her only concern her best friends. We use to talk and now our long conversations are quick and I missed it. I’m aware is a typical teen and it will pass. However, I want her to understand she can count on me for anything.

After we got to the house, she gave me a hug and whisper in my ear “I love you grandma”.
