You know, this might sound odd, but I distinctly remember the Mall, Santa, Lap thing I had as a small child.

It scared the hell outta me! They put me on the lap of this big fat guy with bad breath, a face as red as a beet, and he started shouting HO-HO-HO directly into my ear from 6 inches away while bouncing me on his bony knees. Felt like someone poking me in the butt with a stick. I screamed until my Mom got me the heck back off this insane looking guys knee and then some!

Mom's, it may not be quite as fun as it looks like from where you stand.

It was like dead man's breath; Stale Coffee, stale cigarettes, and somehow, like poop.

One of the scariest moments in my young life!

I always hated cell phones, and swore I would never get one, but since my separation I got one to keep in contact with my daughter at all times, seeing as I don't live with her anymore.
Anyway, last night she was heading to Southern Ontario to spend xmas with her mother's big family and we ended up playing eye spy over the cell phones while she was en route in the truck. We had some great laughs(lol's), and it felt good hang out with her, even though she was a couple of hundred miles away heading the other direction at 65 miles an hour...

Hmmm, I don't feel so deprived anymore that I never got a picture taken with Santa!

My friend's young boys got their first picture together with Santa and I have a copy of it. The eight year old looks totally bored ("do I HAVE to do this?") and the five year old looks like he is ready to bolt the second the flash went off.....and he did, right into Mom's arms!

Oh, my neighbour's car is gone so I know he got the gift! I know he will suspect me, but I am not actually supposed to have a key to the upstairs so he would wonder how I got there. I was given one on the condition I didn't tell anyone so that I could practice my stair walking....our townhouse is all ground level.

No one smiling today?

I'm smiling. Or I was just before I went to bed last night.

Glenn finished brushing his teeth and had already gone into the bedroom to get into bed. I followed to brush my teeth and....

There, on the big mirror above our sinks, was a sweet Valentine message written with a bar of soap. I loved it and I'm still smiling. I'm not going to erase it until tomorrow so I can enjoy it for another full day. I'm still smiling.

Katie, thanks for sharing and for bring this thread back from the deep! Glenn's "superhero power" is definitely romance!

I had a lovely day with DH yesterday. Instead of going to the lake as planned, we went more local to one of the many seaside communities out here. We took the pups with us and went to an off leash park along the water. We picked up lattes to keep us warm and watched as Violet and Joie had a great time. Violet went to the water's edge with the "big dogs" and got feet and head wet, while Joie lost himself in a sea of small black and white dogs - there must have been half a dozen of them all different but similar and all together. Everyone was chuckling at it.

We, too, had a nice Valentine's Day. I did my normal morning thing (on Tuesdays that means walking down to Zumba), came home, showered, and we went to lunch at our favorite sushi bar to visit with our favorite Chinese family (OK, OK, yes, I know and don't ask me why a Chinese family runs a Japanese restaurant, but they do). They'd just returned from a trip home to visit family for lunar new year. So we sat and chatted. There were a couple of toddlers there (children of the family) and I gave them each a dollar for a happy new year present, and everyone was delighted. then walked to the other end of the street (a half mile or so) to buy some cheese, then back to visit with our favorite publican before heading up the hill to home. Spent the evening with a bottle of bubbly and cheese and bread in front of the fire. Nice, all around.
