What My Husband Doesn't Do on Valentine's Day

My husband did not send me flowers today.
He has not bought me chocolates.
No flowery cards graced my pillow.
I will not need to dress fancy to go out tonight.

He is the best husband in the world.

Flowers are expensive.  I'd rather have yarn.
I am allergic to most chocolates.
Cards are sappy in a way I am just not.
After a long meeting last night, I just want to cuddle up and read in bed tonight.

Plus, there's this...

He spent a good deal of Friday night massaging the pain out of my Achilles Tendon and calf.
He happily drove me to meet my girlfriends for a weekend overnight writing retreat on Saturday.
I returned home to find three happy children and two full jars of homemade kimchi fermenting on the counter (I love kimchi more than chocolate and almost as much as my children).
After my late meeting last night, he still stayed awake to watch the latest episode of Downton Abbey with me and then got up early to help with breakfast.

Flowers and chocolates are for lovers who do not come home to kimchi on the counter and happy, well-fed, cared-for children.

Happy Valentine's Day to my HotNerd!!
