Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope yours is better than mine. I threw up at school yesterday and four times since — including in the car on the way home. No school for me today, and no Valentine’s Party, either.
The bad news is, I won’t get to eat any Valentine’s treats today. The good news: Now I might as well save it until Sunday, after we weigh in for our family weight-loss contest. It will taste much better then than it would today!
