Happy Valentine's Day

Valentine's would have been great this year. My husband had planned for us to go out for dinner on Saturday night, but I felt so sick that all we ended up doing was laying on the couch watching lame dunks in the All Star NBA weekend.

In fact I felt sick all weekend and didn't get much writing, painting or sleeping done. Thanks for everyone's advice on the type of floor to put in. I'm still afraid of tile, but have ruled out laminate. Now I'm looking into cork.

Tomorrow in Alberta Canada is family day. The Premier created the holiday around ten years ago and I think it's totally awesome. One day a year is put aside to spend with your family. Plus my kids are off school for the week, so I'm going to do something I've never done. I'm unplugging for the week.

I'll be lurking around, but I probably won't be posting until next week. I say probably because I'm kind of addicted.

Hope everyone has a good week.

PS: For a great signed book contest go pay Heidi a visit or just say hello because she's been housebound for 11 days.

so much for relaxing! I'm so sorry you felt sick! I hope you're on the mend! Sounds like you need some down time with a good book. :)

I had tile in my last two kitchens. I loved the look of them, but I was always afraid I'd drop a can on them and chip one (yeah - I'd do that). And the grout was really hard to keep looking nice. I have wood floors now and love them. They get scratches in them, so they aren't perfect, but I like them better. They're warm feeling, too, which is especially good right now. :)

Enjoy your week, and I'll agree it is sort of addicting!
