VD 2011

Tara and I always joke that the short form for Valentines Day is VD, and we still think it’s funny.

The day pretty much started as any other. I was up at 6:45 with Liam and we chilled and had breakfast for a little bit. When he was fed and in a good mood, I packed him up and we went to get doughnuts from the local bakery. Local in this case is the next town over. Hmmmm, that makes me sound like I live in the country, and that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Tara woke and kicked me out of the kitchen so she could make some brunch. This left Liam and I to chill upstairs and we had a good time until he decided that he wasn’t, so I wrapped him up and put him down. Brunch was amazing! We had french toast done in chocolate milk, with nutella and banana filling. Totally healthy! Also scrambled eggs with chives, goat cheese and tomato. OK, that part was healthy. Oh, and bacon, guess we wandered out of healthy again. But it’s not like we eat this daily, although I could get used to it 😉

The rest of the day was pretty much work time for me. But with no meetings and no super pressing issues, it went pretty smoothly. We watched a movie called ‘Never let Me go’, which, while well shot and acted and whatnot, was kinda depressing as hell. But worth the watch. It was supposed to be a little more romantic than it was.

Dinner was where I was at. Baked chicken with just olive oil, salt and pepper. Mashed potatoes and a nice salad. And this time we had Liam at the table with us.  Long ago we bought a high chair kinda thing, something that would strap onto a normal chair. And he did really well in it. Mind you, the tray part won’t be usable for that much longer as his legs already hardly fit underneath. But that’s ok, we’ll just push him right up to the table.

The rest of the evening was spent with massages and TV and then sleep.

Thanks to my wife for a lovely VD!
