I couldn't remember my password to this blogger account. So, I tried everything I could imagine. Every. thing. No dice.
After multiple attempts, I decided to take radical action and do the "password recovery". Unfortunately, the email account they sent the information to recover my password no longer existed. duh.
So, I tried to complete the form on gmail that verified who I am and that I own this account. Google told me "sorry. we cannot confirm that you own this account".
Wow. I'm so secure even I can't get in.
Finally, I made a list of every password I've ever used... and one by one, tried them all. Yep. All of them. All million and a half of them.
And whooo hoo! I hit one and it worked.
But, I can't remember exactly which one it is. So, I circled two of them (I think it's one of them).
I had a lot to say on my blog until I couldn't remember my password. Then, all I could think of was that I couldn't remember my password. So, now I have nothing else to say. ;)

Friday night, my Valentine and I went out to dinner at a great Italian restaurant. They have the best homemade fettuccini. He had the pork proscuitto. We also went to see, of course, Valentine's Day.
Saturday, we went to church... and listened to Pastor John talk about sex. In church!!?? Then, out to eat at Carlos O Kellys... I had the margarita chicken... he had the steak and enchilada...
Lindsey and I made these...
No you aren't dreaming... chocolate filled chocolate topped chocolate cupcakes. It doesn't get any chocolatier.
The girls made these...
Em came home from school with these...
I gave the girls some little gifts... Abz put hers on ...
Em tried her chocolate... and realized one of them was "bubble gum flavored" filling...
I love my valentine...
and he loves me...

So, basically, every week, I am either buying a gift or a card or planning a party or something crazy like that. We have special meals and visits and all kinds of crazy things going on.
Last weekend, I surpised Shawn for his big day on a trip out of town and to a Comedy Club. We dined some pretty fine dining at Red Robin, and went shopping at the mall. Okay okay... the mall was for me more than him, but he did get some new shoes. I'm sort of sacrifical.... then we came home and ate confetti cake (his choice) decorated by Abbie in memory of Mel Blanc (some sort of inside joke between Abbie and her dad that I have yet to understand).
I have lists and lists of lists to make sure I don't forget something... and I still forget some aspect of the birthday season. It's pretty tough not to when they're coming at you as quick as this.
Sometimes (often) I complain about it. Why didn't we spread these things out some? But, just last week, my husband reminded me how much I hate winter (as if I needed to be reminded really)... and how long and boring it would be if we didn't have a birthday season to celebrate during the worst time of year in the midwest.
So... to that I say... let the festivities begin!
