This cold as of lately is CRAZY. Last Thursday, Kenz went in for the morning but then got sent home and Friday he didn’t even go into work at all. Too coooooooooooold! Usually, he tells me when he’s on his way home but Thursday he didn’t. What a nice surprise to get home from work, open the garage door and find his car already home! Since he has today off (Family Day), he got a really nice long weekend. Not me – I worked Thursday and Friday day and night and I’m working today as well. No family yet to celebrate Family Day with anyways so whatever LOL. The incentive, though, is when I remind myself of the big bucks I’m earning today, making double time and half pay. To know that Kenz will already be home when I get home is a nice treat, too.
I can’t believe how much harder it is to get out of bed in the morning when your husband doesn’t have to! I can’t imagine going through that Every.Single.Day like Kenz does the rest of the year when he leaves our house at 5AM each morning and I am rarely even conscious enough to mumble “good bye.”
On our way to dinner on Saturday night, Kenz surprised me by saying he had won over a hundred bucks on Proline last week. Somehow, he kept this a secret from me for a couple days so that he could announce (on our way to dinner on Saturday night) that our meal would be “free.” We were planning on going for dinner anyways, but it’s so much nicer when you have “free money” to do that with. I have no idea how he keeps secrets. I told him that the minute I win something, I would have to call him RIGHT THAT SECOND, followed by a call to my mom. I just can’t wait to share awesome news like that with the world (clearly my world is pretty small – consisting mainly of sharing my news to my husband and my mother) hahaha. Well, and now this blog 🙂
After dinner, we went to Toronto to see a Broadway show called “Evil Dead – the Musical.” The same play came around a couple of years ago and Kenz was upset when he didn’t get to see it that time (the timing just didn’t work out by the time we realized the show was in town). So this year, he bought tickets early so we would not miss out. What’s better than spending Valentine’s Day watching an old-school horror theatre show that actually sprayed the audience with blood?! I knew this play would be more for Kevin’s enjoyment than mine, but honestly, I really enjoyed it, too. The theatre that it was in – the Randolph Theatre – was so neat! It was an old church, converted into a theatre. The seats we sat in were even old benches with cushions.
I had big plans of making something romantic for actual Valentine’s Day dinner – or at least fondue for dessert – but we ended up having a busy day and didn’t get home until 7pm last night. So we got the deep dish pizza for $10 from Little Caesars on our way home. If you haven’t tried this, I suggest you go…NOW! I’m not even a huge pizza fan, but we get this at least once every couple of weeks and I love it. I did, however get Kenz a bunch of chocolate and he got me a couple of things, too. Oh, and a few weeks ago, I took a card class and made this card for him:
And…I just realized that today is our six month wedding anniversary!
