I started feeling better on Wednesday which was a good thing but it would have been nice if it had been Tuesday so I could have gone to bowling. Anyway I ended up making soup in my crock pot. I had come across this recipe for Slow Cooker (or Stove top) Vegetarian Black Bean and Rice Soup with Lime and Cilantro at Kalyn's Kitchen so of course I pinned it!

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Mountains on Thursday, loved how the sun was hitting the peak.
So one day I was looking at the calendar and bingo there it was, his trip would make him out of town for that special day. Well Debby went into her pity party for one and made of point of asking him why he didn't tell me. I'm like it would have been nice if you had come to me and said "Honey, I will be out of town this year for Valentine's Day so do you want to celebrate before I go or when I come home?" Seems simple to me but he is never sure how I will react so being quiet is usually his plan. Doesn't always work for him!
So I was a little pi**ed off when he left. I made a point of telling him in my sweet voice "you better not send me flowers because they will sit by the front door and die!" Don't you just love me sweetness, my ability to be understanding. Sometimes I amaze myself. He left the Friday before and I got a card in the mail from him which was lovely. Then on Monday the flowers arrived. He sent them Monday because I go out to bowling on Tuesday's running errands afterwards. Well I took them in and opened them up. Honestly I was missing him and these little tokens were melting my heart.
Well we did have a good laugh the other night. See in all honesty I could not find the Valentin's card I bought for him. But since I was angry I decided to just put in a generic card that I was mailing out to the children in the family. It didn't say much and I didn't sign my normal "love always, Debby" no way, he just got a "love, Debby." You gotta love me, right? So I told him about the fact that I misplaced his card and how I was mad at the time. He said he was wondering why the card was so simple and we laughed about it. Isn't it nice that we can laugh about those things? (I had slipped the card into his packed suitcase before he left)
Needless to say I know how foolish I can be. As grown up as I can be I still act like a spoiled child often. Sometimes it amazes me that he actually came back to me after we divorced. Did he really think I had changed. I guess I fooled him. Anyway, I did miss him while he was gone and I am going to try to be a better wife because one thing I know for sure is that I love him with all my heart.
So I started a new medication for my COPD and I waited until I was home along with someone else to make sure I didn't have some adverse reaction. Do you think I am evil because for a moment I thought about laying on the floor to see what reaction I would get since I told them to check on me in my office? (Well it would have been my bad because they never checked anyway)
SO MAYBE I SHOULD HAVE CALLED THIS POST WICKED!
(not to be confused with the musical)

You can read about the Love Locks here.
Well my Valentine is in Dallas this week so I am going to make the best of the day without him. After bowling today I am going to head to a Casino and drown my sorrows in front of a Keno machine :) (Love you Mark)
So these are the treats I made for my friend's children at bowling. Amber & Dylan say they are pretty good, I did not taste them :) I found this treat on Pinterest and the recipe is from Betty Crocker. It's called Valentine Chex Mix. You can also find it here on my Pinterest page. I never did find the red sprinkles so I used rainbow ones!
Hope you have a wonderful day. ((HUGS)) from me!
