Okay, so we really didn’t celebrate Valentine’s day in a traditional way. On Friday the 13th, we went to the Valentine’s dinner at our church and Jeremy got had the opportunity to lip sync “As Long As You Love Me” by the Backstreet Boys with some of the other staff members. I’m pretty sure that he felt like this was a Friday-the-13th kind of experience. I got to sit in on their multiple practices before the big gig. It was too funny. My face hurt from smiling and trying not to laugh. Of course, it wasn’t just lip syncing. There was dancing at as well. Truly, a night to remember! Valentine’s Day was spent moving my sister and her husband into their new home. My job was to keep Owen out of the way and Jeremy was the one for the heavy lifting. My family loves the addition of Jeremy and Andrew because now we actually have people with muscles who can do stuff like move heavy objects. It’s great.
This week has been a bit of this and that. Thursday was a grand adventure… I had just put Owen down for his afternoon nap when I got a phone call from a random number. I didn’t answer but they left a voice mail. I found out it was Jeremy calling from Cash’N’Carry where he had locked his keys and phone in the car. He had a very important meeting in an hour and he needed me to drive him his spare key. He already knew the meeting needed to pushed back for him to make it time. I drove with a lead foot up to Olympia and I had to keep reminding myself that this meeting wasn’t worth me getting a speeding ticket over. I got to the parking lot and gave him his key with enough time for him to make it back for the newly rescheduled time. On the way home, I got another call from a random number and this time the voice mail was Jeremy saying he had only made it few exits before he truck overheated and he was pulled over in a parking lot trying to fix it. His cell phone was dead for some reason so I had no way of calling him back. After waiting a while to hear from him, I left Owen with my parents and went back up north to find my husband. I got to him just in time for him to finish up adding coolant to his truck and he was ready to ride. I followed him home just to make sure no more drama occurred. It was a totally crazy day and no, Jeremy didn’t make it to his important meeting. But things can be rescheduled and despite our best efforts, getting to the church just wasn’t an option. Other than the zany travels and car troubles of Thursday, the week has been pretty normal. Here are a few highlight photos.
