Week in Review: Valentine’s Day Edition

by Kay Lynn

Perfect Heart

 Happy Valentine’s Day!  Mr. Boomer and I saw a musical last night and are going to brunch today.  We  rather spend money on sharing experiences together than gifts.  I hope you’re having a nice day however you celebrate.

Tomorrow is my first holiday at work since New Year’s Day.  It’s also a nice break as the next one isn’t until Memorial Day in late May. (Maybe this is why I usually take vacation in April.) 

I’d really rather have Veteran’s Day in terms of sentiment but President’s Day is good calendar-wise.  What do you think?
