I am not sure where all the time has gone but apparently Valentine’s Day is coming up. I guess that dealing with infertility, school anxiety (I think I am starting to get dissertation panic attacks), and a renewed focus on health, I stopped keeping track of time. Anyways, the reason for this post is I wanted to see if anyone has good suggestions for what I can do for Valentine’s Day. My DH has been nothing short of wonderful this year and I want to show him how much I appreciate it. To give you a brief background, we have been together for my entire adult life (since high school). We have had some great times and some really crappy times. We have also done a lot of growing up together. Two years ago, he supported my decision to pursue my doctorate even though that meant quitting my job and us losing some income (I was a teacher so I guess that part was not too major). He also works his ass off to support me. Right now is his busy season and his hours are insane (which is why IVF will not happen for a few more months). Even though he is super busy, he makes time for me. Last week he was out of town on business and drove two and a half hours home at night to surprise me. I know he was exhausted but he did not show it. I am sure our infertility situation stresses him out but he focuses more on supporting me than getting support for himself (I wish he was a little more open but I understand his motivations). It is also awesome to know that after 13 years, he still finds me sexy and smart. He still hits on me a lot and although pretend to find it annoying, I secretly love it!
My DH has simple tastes. He is more of a steak and beer than wine and cheese kind of guy. I really want to do something nice for him although I know too much would overwhelm him. Does anyone have any ideas? I can’t tell you how much I would appreciate it. xoxoxo
