Gift from the Heart

February 15, 2011

When you do not have a lot of money, but have some time make gifts from the heart. As children we all learned from school to make little drawings and gifts to our parents for all occasions and seasons. Well when your a housewife like me and collecting changes around the house, getting happy when doing laundry, and looking forward weekly for your allowance. You want to save that allowance and change for a special day and make gifts from the heart.

Monday was Valentine day and I thought about what to give my husband as a Valentine day gift. It is really not a day that we celebrate because in this household everyday is a day of love and Christmas (for me, lol). But I said why not do something special for him this year. He been so supported and as usual awesome. He is carrying all the weight for both of us and all I can do right now is make sure things are done around the house and that he is taking care of. In the state we both work here I feel as a free loader but told many time from John that I am not. Just continue doing what I am doing and in no time I can start helping with a pay check again.

Therefore, I planned to make Valentine for 3 days. To treat John like the little king that he is. Saturday and Sunday I served him breakfast in bed. Saturday night I made him a nice dinner of his choice, Sunday I treated him to a Movie. Then we went to the first castle John ever took me to 8 years ago and ate dinner in the tower staring down at the city. Official Valentine day I woke up early to place some chocolate onto his car seat and a photo of moi for his work desk. For him to call me laughing and telling me how much he love my crazy butt. Monday morning before school and night straight after school I made a nice little romantic meal and surprise him by sitting in a candle lit room all doll up waiting for him to arrive from work.

This was my gift from my heart. My time, sharing a bit of my allowance, and catering to my baby (Sundays are the days he cater to me, lol…I so love my Sundays).

      Thank you DD. A few other people mention that too me but I am nervous to even try. I have a problem my timing. I am slow with cooking and everything always take 2 hours or more. No one in their life nor I will wait on a meal more then 20 minutes.

      Thank you Kate. My Vday gift was him treating me to the castle on Sunday night. He actually wanted to take me there on Monday but the castle is closed on Monday.Flowers, but I don’t know whether to count this or not. I get bouquet of flowers almost every 2 weeks, and last week he gave me the plastic without a limit. I of course thought it was a test to see if I had learn how to control my spending habit so I only bought a few things. He laughed and said no it really was for me to enjoy. Next time I will know better,lol.

      I tried to take the test but then afterward it wanted my email address and info. So the result was not giving to me, because my info was not sent.

      I hope your Vday was pretty nice as well whether you celebrate it on Monday or everyday:)
