Finding a day?

I've got a confession to make. Yesterday morning when I wrote my Valentine's-or-bust post I believed that today was Valentine's Day. Yes, that's right, I really, truly thought today was hearts-flowers-Cupid's arrow-pink confetti day. That's why I was so crazed about having left the darling man's gift to the last day.

Only, it wasn't the last day. But you all knew that, didn't you? You probably just figured it was Crazy Writer Syndrome propelling me into a frenzy, didn't you? Come on, you can admit it. I know that's what you thought. It's what I would have thought had the slipper been on the other foot.

The good news's not Valentine's Day. Just thought I'd clarify that here and now. Don't want any of you to think I've dropped a sandwich from my picnic basket. I know, unequivocably, that it's not Valentine's Day. No hearts. No flowers. No Cupid's arrow. Not until tomorrow.

The better news is...since I believed I was on the big countdown to the love-in, I shopped for my darling husband. And I found perfect gifts for him! I've got to tell you, I'm tickled about what I've got hidden in the bottom of my closet. Now I wish I could just spring it all on him today. It's going to be tough waiting until tomorrow... hmm? Pardon? Oh, you want to know what I bought? Hmm...I'm going to have to take a pass on divulging the lovey-dovey details, if you don't mind. I mean, it's only one day until the big reveal so I'm going to make everyone wait. I'm not accusing anyone of being a blabbermouth or anything but hey, you never know when someone might let something slip, do you? (Yeah, you know who I mean. I do have a blabbermouth friend but I won't divulge that name, either! *G*)

Okay, the best news is...I found an extra day! Don't you love it when that happens? I thought today was going to be Thursday, and that yesterday was Wednesday but neither of those was fact so today is, in fact, an extra day! YAY!!

I am thrilled to find this extra day because, honestly, I need it. So much to do, so little time to do it all. March is bearing down on me like a runaway train and I've still got tons to cross off my ever-growing to-do list.

An extra day? Yeah, that works for me. Especially since I've got Valentine's Day gifts to wrap now!

Have a good one!

I love it when I find an extra day. When an appointment is called off works for me! Have fun. :-)

You are a crazy woman! I never seem to find an extra day...a weekend one would be good though.
Happy Valentine's Day to all of you over the other side of the world.

Man, what I could do with an extra day! I more frequently lose them than find them.

Happy almost Valentines Day!!
