And we did have a "just us" Valentine dinner the night before. I stopped at Hobby Lobby to get an ink pad (half price!), Keith stopped at his hobby store to get some glue and we met at Souper Salad. Our theory was we'd go the day before to beat the crowds. While we were eating dinner we did chuckle over how "romantic" our Valentine's Day was. But that's ok - we love each other very much and really don't need an official day for it.
And, sad to say, we might have an "Athlete Down" situation at my house for the Knitter Olympics. Unfortunately they happened to coincide with a very busy time at work and my carpal tunnel is screaming at me. I'm wearing braces during the day as well as my usual to bed routine and they still hurt. I'm afraid that the knitting might have to be put aside for a few days. I'm going to take Yarn Harlot's words to heart though and remember that it isn't seemly to whine and snivvle about it when things happen. Real life dictates that this athlete also work, so that's what will happen. Or I could be like a certain ice skater a few years back and wail the "Why me?" curses! LOL! And I know that I will finish these socks, just need a few days rest.
