Failed Valentines – Or so I thought

Look at what your dog did.

I gave Robert a face of disbelief. I got home from work around 6pm. I left work later than usual because of some testing that I needed to do. I was stuck in traffic because of rush hour and the last thing I needed to hear is that my dog (I don’t know who it is, I’m pretty sure it’s June), made a mess that I had to clean up.

Good thing Robert already made dinner, he was taking the pizza out of the oven while I was walking in. On my way home, I already had a plan – I will make dinner, my specialty dish – Bowtie pasta with Italian sausage and watch the Olympics or anything on TV. Robert made pizza and Fixer Upper is on. This is not the plan I had in mind, but I like this idea too.

I took the dogs outside, and when they all came in, they went straight to our bed and now there’s mud everywhere.

It’s been raining the whole day. I was looking forward to going home and relaxing. Well, not anymore. I just lost it when Robert said there’s mud everywhere. I just changed our bedsheets a couple of days ago and now it’s dirty again? Our WHITE comforter is also new. I can’t believe this is happening. As we walk in our room, I already have a game plan — Change sheets, eat dinner while doing laundry. Chores. My plan of relaxing, maybe watching TV is now out the window.

I walk into our room and I look straight at our bed. It looks clean, no mud. I turn to face Robert, about to ask him if he is seeing something that I am not. All I see is his smiling face, a vase full of red roses and chocolate covered strawberries.


Happy Valentine’s, Babe.

He did it again, he surprised me. I stood there, laughing and hugging him. I was so upset with how I thought our night will turn out but this was all part of his plan.

He finished making dinner, and we watched Fixer Upper. The chocolate covered strawberries were yummy.

This night is better than how I’ve imagined.

How did I get so lucky?
