Happy Valentine's Day!!

So today is Valentine's Day. Howard and I sometimes exchange cards and gifts and sometimes we don't. My favorite Valentine's Day gift was a beautiful silver bracelet where every link was a heart. It's really pretty and I wear it every day. Today we gave each other a nice gift, a trip. We got up early and were on the road by 7:30 on our way to the airport. The weather was awful! An unexpected several inches of snow really made a mess of the roads. We were only able to go 40mph in some areas and when Howard got it up to 60mph I was freaking out. We made in to the airport with only a small window to get to the gate and get on board. We made it though and had a very uneventful flight, thank goodness. I was a little concerned when I remembered that the seats were only 3 across and it was a commuter jet!

We are already at our destination and having a great time! Ok, here it is: we are in Virginia (DC area) visiting Amber and Andy (Anaki)!! We got a great price on the airfare (under $100 round trip) and I have Monday and Tuesday off from school so we figured this would be a good time to go. When we arrived, Amber took us to AOL so we could see her office and where she spends so much of her time. Now we are at their place and Howard has been busy working and I've been busy supervising and relaxing. We were really looking forward to seeing their new place and weren't disappointed. It's really nice and they've worked really hard on it! So, here we are, having a great time. Howard has already fixed their ice maker and fridge water supply. Now he's working on the programmable thermostat. Soon we're going out to dinner! What a great trip!

Scott's at home with the pups, hopefully shoveling the driveway and taking care of things on the home front. He won't be sleeping in either because those pups will have him up early!

So, hope everyone is having a great weekend and I'll write all about our weekend when we get home on Tuesday!
