    so what are you doing for your sweeties on Valentines day?

    for 25 years I bought my wife roses. Then around 10 years ago, I got cheap, and decided 50 bucks for flowers, or 15 bucks for chocolate, or teddy bears is such a waste of money.

    We decided to go away to Atlantic City for a couple of days as a present to ourselves.

    I told her tonight I didnt feel right about not getting her anything on a more personal level. She told me the trip is enough.
    I decided when I run over to Harbor Freight on Monday, Im going to get her a rolling toolbox.
    She wasnt too thrilled about it. Maybe I shouldnt have ruined the suprise.

    Breakfast for her.

    Later we go to do the final inspection on a townhouse we are looking at buying.

    My wife has been complaining that for the past few weeks it has been taking forever for her bathroom sink to drain properly -- so her request for Valentines Day is that I fix it. Taking the "P" trap off and cleaning it out properly will take 5 minutes tops. However, moving all the sundries that she has stored under there will take 20!

    Being the romantic fool that I am, I may just go ahead and install a new toilet kit (flapper, siphon valve, etc.) in her bathroom as well. In order to receive the proper amount of "credit" for my hard labor , is simply leaving empty parts box in the bathroom garbage can to subtle or do I need to tell her what I did?

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    LOML found a computer desk on CL for her studio anex (remember the Pink Room redo?) We'll go look at it, bring it home unless it's junk. Photo looks good.
    Were going to go out to Weatherford to eat lunch, but desk is in opposite direction, so will go to Olive Garden instead. Then, I get to take out the table she's been using, and put the desk in and wire the computer back up. At least I have a TV in there and can watch the Olympics while I'm at it. Jim.
