We got hit with a storm, that surprise surprise didn't turn out to be a real snowstorm. More like an inch of snow, two inches of sleet, and two inches of rain which made for one big sloppy mess. Think three inches of slush to walk through. But I got a nice Valentine's treat; they delayed classes by two hours at my college so I was off the hook for the morning and could hang out with Matt for a few hours before he had to fly to Texas for a convention...again. Texas is his new home.
This left me with Valentine's evening alone, which isn't a big deal because we went out to eat Sunday night and I'm not huge into Valentine's Day anyway. But just to be celebratory, I got to savor a couple sweet treats. In the afternoon, I had to make a trip out in the sleet to get lunch for everyone at work because we had a staff meeting despite the weather. Since I was at one of the best bakeries in Boston, I picked up a little something for myself.
Always wanted to buy one, but never had a reason to justify the indulgence. And then when I got home, I got some more sweet treats from my mom.
Chocolate chip cookies that taste like home. Thanks mom! You're the best! :)
After some sweets, I spent the evening doing some nice things for myself. I made some homemade salsa and some fajitas, and then watched a old movie, which I read was a good thing to do on Valentine's Day if you're on your own. It actually was because it made me realize that, in some ways, we've made a lot of progress as a society in the relationship department. Nothing like a "romantic" movie where Gary Cooper forces himself on a woman, she screams no, he doesn't let up, she slaps him. And then, she apologizes to him and says, "Okay, now I'm ready for you to kiss me.". Of course, they fall in love. To boot, it had a tragic ending, which made me feel like, "Hey, I've got it pretty good."
