As promised: The V-Day card


Lest any say "awww" too soon, I do have to admit today was not the rosiest.  I'll say it right out, I had a tantrum of sorts.  Couldn't find the medical coupon before going to see the med nurse today.  Also I found a rather expensive combination lock had gone missing.  So I left in a huff, but not before asking Cimmy to call DSHS for a replacement coupon.

The appointment was quick and relatively pleasant.  I went to the cash & carry and bought two boxes of Trident– one in spearmint for me, and watermelon "twist" for Cimmy, and a big bag of mixed veggies.  Then I went to the sporting goods store and bought another lock.  Then I came home and made sure to thoroughly apologize.  I thanked her for making the call.  Then later I went to the gym for a while, came home, and told her that her idea to attach the lock to one of my gym bag handles was a good idea.  Then the day ended (for her, anyways) with a little jak & Cimmy time.

Okay, so I should say instead there were a lot of thorns before getting to the rose petals, and prick wounds had to be bandaged.  But it was a good day, and still confirms that we love each other very much.

Wherever you see "jaklumen", that's me- the username is still unique as of the current year. Be aware that the facet you see, is only a small part of the me that is me.

  1. We all have our tantrums. The secret, I believe, is to be aware that we have them and to be willing to apologize! I can forgive a lot when given a heartfelt apology. Mr. is usually unable to see his mistakes and has rarely said he is sorry. I find that it makes it more difficult for me to say I am sorry because I do not want to extend his delusion that he is always right. A conundrum of sorts.


  2. I actually feel really good about that day because, rather than having a tantrum on top of his tantrum (making things worse), I remained calm, though still angry until he finally left. I have to say, though, that was the hardest thing I've ever done and I'm not sure I EVER want to go through it again.


  3. This was a great post. So glad that you ultimately enjoyed the day. I love the card. I tend to like simple cards and this one is cute and sweet. Year ago I got my husband a card that made a squeaking kissing sound when he opened it up. I really think it was actually meant for a child, but it had this little creature on the front and a silly, sweet saying inside. He still has the card on his nightstand and occasionally opens it up to hear the very labored and slow squeaking as the battery winds down. He gets a kick out if it every time. I've never been able to find another one but I sure would get it if I did.
