    Re: Valentine's tips

    Last year I gave my wife tickets to the ballet at the Kennedy Center. I told her that was her Valentine's present for the next ten years. So I'm good until 2018. I think.....

    Top Ten Places for Singles to Avoid on Valentine's Day

    Just an FYI for any of the other single folks on this board. I'll be avoiding what I've termed 'Black Saturday' by watching some DVDs and going through pictures of my recent vacation which I've been putting off for a while and needs to get done anyway. It's nice that some of you guys do special things for your sig others on V-Day.

    Re: Valentine's tips

    My wife asked me the dreaded question this morning, "What are we doing for Valentine's Day."

    I said we have gift certificates for Buffalo Wild Wings! She wasn't impressed. I am vexed......

    Leaving me alone in my cave, (and maybe supplying me with food, beer, or both!) DOES show me she loves me.

    I usually give my wife breakfast in bed on Valentine's Day and since it's a weekend this year, I'll watch the kids and let her sleep in. I also give her and each of my daughters a rose and a note telling them what I love about each of them. Maybe I'll enlist the daughters to help make heart-shaped French Toast (my wife's favorite breakfast)
    All man here, pal.

    I suppose you're right. Let me watch the game in peace without distractions is a pretty good present.

    Re: Valentine's tips

    My wife and I have an understanding: we don't do any Hallmark holidays and she's fine with including Valentine's Day as one of those. We don't do Sweetest Day, Boss' Day, Secretary's Day, Grandparent's Day and any others I might have missed. Normally we go out on Saturday night but no way will we venture out this Saturday night. This Valentine's Day we'll go to a friend's house and drink beer, eat pizza and sort boxes of girl scout cookies.

    Re: Valentine's tips

    We'll be spending the weekend at her parents' house helping her mom recover from some surgery.

    We're also pricing out a kitchen remodel. Thus, there is an agreement that Valentine's Day is to be a low key event.

    (As is, I'm hoping, Mother's Day, her birthday, and our anniversary which all fall within about 4 weeks of each other every spring/summer, or about the time the kitchen project will be done...)

    I just went through a kitchen remodel 15fan and settled on new cabinets from Ikea. I'm very happy with them and they were quite affordable.

    Cool. IKEA does indeed rule. I only wish that we had one around here when we first got out of college.

    It looks like we're going to be able to match our existing cabinets in the renovation. Previous owner did a small renovation about 6-7 years ago. We're looking to replace the granite, and extend the counter by bricking in an exterior door that never gets used. If we can pull that off, that will save us a good chunk of change by not having to replace all of the cabinets.

    My wife's employer also has a deal where she can buy GE appliances for 40% off list price, so we'll definitely be taking advantage of that perk.

    Re: Valentine's tips

    Because it falls on the weekend, I need to be up early. We planned actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we're going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don't know, I don't know if we'll have enough time.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.
