There was no question that I was going to make it home for Saturday. As much as my cousins and aunt wanted me to hang out and spend the day, I wanted to be with my family. Just for the record, V-day is our anniversary, and that night happened to be the Tiki Torch XC ski party, something the kids (and us) were all looking forward to.
I made it home in the morning and surprised everyone because they figured I'd be home some time that afternoon or evening, and even managed to pick up roses and heart-shaped boxes of chocolates for the everyone. They were thrilled to pieces, and that alone made it worthwhile. Life doesn't always come easy, but the best things in life rarely do.
Until the next time, thanks for reading.
