I know a lot of people think that its a silly holiday, because you should tell your friends and family that you love them all the time, and not just on a day in February. Which is true, but its also fun to have a special day to celebrate it too!
Plus, any day dedicated to pink and hearts and prettiness - especially in the middle of winter, when everything outside is dark and gray, and everything inside is bright and cheerful - is a wonderful wonderful day!
And, to maybe make my favorite holiday even better, or mess it up, depending on how this goes - we might be closing on our house today.
We were supposed to definitely close today, and were approved by the mortgage company earlier this month. But something fell down on their end near the end of the process, the part where they wrap everything up and send it all over to closing. They waited way too long, and didn't leave themselves enough time to get everything done.
Of course, up until last night, we were told everything was fine and we'd definitely close tomorrow. We didn't find out we might not until after everything we own was on a truck, basic services (like electricity and water) changes had been scheduled and we'd both taken time off from work (a bigger deal for me because a sub had to be scheduled, so now that's someone else who is getting her Valentine's Day messed up when I go into work today!)
Okay, I'm going to stop stressing out about this and try to calm down a bit so I can move on to Project Life now...
Week 3 of Project Life was a really exciting week! The Sunday before this week started, we put an offer in on a house (the one we are having so many problems with right now!), and this week, we had a signed contract! There was so much to do - like filling out tons of paperwork for the mortgage, and printing out every picture of the house I could find! Its new construction, so the only ones I could find were the floor plan and sketch of the outside!
And, of course, there was school. One day this week, I woke up early so I had time to actually blow out my bangs and put on real make up before school. Lots of my students noticed, which I thought was nice, but one 5th grader's comment was my favorite. He told me I looked so much prettier than I usually do! Um, thanks?
Well, I'm off to go to work and hope for a call that we are actually closing today! I really want everything to be delivered tomorrow as scheduled. What are you up to today?
