Not another sappy Valentine's Day post

But look what Jason brought to me at work yesterday!

He said he didn't think he'd have time to do anything today, and he wanted to be sure he remembered.

I made the mistake of leaving them in my office overnight, which gets pretty stuffy because it's closed up, so they opened.

He later confessed that he had called to have some delivered, but then realized the ridiculous amount of a handling fee (something like $15!) added on to the cost of the flowers and decided to cut out the middle man.

(He also confessed that instead of calling a local florist down here, he called 1-800-FLOWERS, so that could've been part of the problem.)

This was after he had been up since the wee hours and had worked all day at the auction.

He thought about me.

I was touched.

I can count on one hand the number of times I've gotten flowers from him in the nearly 12 years we've been a couple.

Then, he sent me an email to my work email address in the wee hours of this morning, before getting up to go to the auction again.

What a sweetie.

I feel pretty bad, because I haven't gotten him anything. I know what he'd like - an other installment of Are You Being Served? on DVD - but I didn't get it ordered in time. I was sort of hoping that I could get one at Suncoast this weekend (we're going to the mall for a birthday party at Build a Bear) but then I find out, there aren't any more Suncoast stores in Memphis! What is up with that?

So I'll have to eat crow, and order it late.

I, on the other hand, have asked only for a small table on which to place my scrapbooking stuff in our home office.

I am a simple girl.

So, to all of you out there - I hope you have a sweet day, and that you have someone special to share it with.

Or if you don't, that you'll avail yourself of some of those "anti-Valentine's Day" cards that have just come out.
