Valentine's Day 2014

Well, it's Valentine's Day again. Happy Valentine's Day!

This year I came up with a pretty good plan. There is a lot of strategy and planning that goes into a Tyson Cooper Valentine's Day and this year I decided to treat Cami to a more low-key celebration.

I reflected for the last two or three weeks of January on what she would like (I don't start thinking about Valentine's Day until I feel like I've recovered from Christmas which usually takes a little while). I then spent the first week of February jotting down nearly every idea I came up with. I do this in a Google doc so that she can't "accidentally" stumble upon it in the house.

Next I timed everything out: when to buy the flowers and give them to her, when to pick up her chocolates, what time our dinner plans should commence, etc.

Then, with five days left until V-Day, I began to put my plan into motion. On Wednesday I was going to go to the store to purchase her chocolates and some construction paper that I needed. On Thursday I was going to procure her dozen roses (the color of the roses is important and this year I was going to go with pink). On Friday morning I was going to pick up the donuts that she loves, etc., etc.

Wednesday came and during the afternoon, while I was in my office at work, I happened to look out the window and saw heavenly dandruff descending upon the landscape. "Oh shoot" I said. "The forecast was actually right this time. It is going to snow."


By the time I made it home a little over an hour later the roads were already slick. In the ensuing 15 hours we received over a foot of snow. Living in southwestern Virginia that meant that all travel, unless you're nuts, isn't going to happen.

The end of the story, I haven't done anything for Cami today. My well laid plans have been for naught.

We held a couple council this morning and decided to reschedule Valentine's Day for sometime next week. That's why I haven't given you any actual details of what I was going to do today. Those will be forthcoming after we have celebrated.

Hoping your Valentine is wonderful and treats you like royalty today and everyday,

  1. Ha! I went to Target Wednesday night for contact solution and the Valentine's Day section looked like the day after Christmas section, it was so picked over! Guess the snow kept people from procrastinating.

    Anyway, who needs gifts to celebrate? Cook dinner, rub her back, just enjoy each other :)
