Valentines day for me

Happy_valentines I rode a spin bike for an hour and a half on valentines day.  My true love is riding outdoors, preferably where you can get good and muddy - of course, with the temperatures reading in the low single digits above and below zero, there was no mud to be found.  I still felt a little unfaithful though.

The rest of the day I spent talking with my clients about their fitness goals, how cold it was, and what valentines day meant to them.  we agreed on their fitness goals (they needed to lose some weight) we agreed on how cold it was (way, way, way too cold) but we did not agree on what valentines day meant.

Here were some of the answers that I got:

"Love is dead; valentines day is just another way that malls get money. True love is taking out the trash and turning the music down - not diamonds."

"I love valentines day.  All the guys go out and buy flowers and all the girls can be flirty and fun."

"It is valentines day today?"

"Romance is gone..." (she was wearing a red bra when she said it...  interesting.)

"I'm sorry Steph" 

That last one was my husband Bill, who claimed to have forgotten completely about Valentines day.  He said that to make up we could go buy an outfit for me and then go out to dinner.  the outfit shopping was not successful.  I was tired from work and not feeling very pretty... We walked around the mall until we saw the movie theaters.  I wanted to see a movie but Bill said that there was nothing he really wanted to watch.  so we did not see a movie.  The night was starting to feel like love really was dead.

But then we went home and Bill had cleaned the house and lit candles all over everywhere.  he told me that he loved me and we danced to a slow song in our living room.  Bill had gotten me a great gift and the night turned out wonderful.

I hope you all had a wonderful day as well.
