Smile I'm in trouble

Is anyone else in hot water with their wife/fiancee/girlfriend for working a game tonight..on *gasp* Valentines day?

While my fiancee is pretty accomodating with my schedule and rarely complains, she was very disappointed when I told her I had a game tonight.

I don't work Thursday's...I'm a youth pastor and I have high school group on Thursday nights. However, my wife & I aren't really into the Valentine's/Sweetest Day thing. I get her something small...but we figure if we need a "special" day to tell each other what we mean to each other...well, we've got problems. We celebrate on our anniversary. Interesting to hear about what guys/gals are going through that are officials, though!

We aren't really big on it either. But, we have always done something for it - and it would be nice to at least go out to dinner together. Oh well.

Are we working together tonight? If so, one of us had better start driving!

Training. That's what it's all about.

Yes, I am doing a double tonight. That's why I took her out to dinner last night. that's why I gave her the roses last night and the chocolates ( 2 boxes ) and the stuffed animal.

But I can beat Valentines day troubles. Our son was delivered on the 15th of February. I had a game on the 14th and met her after the game at the hospital. She delivered at 7:35 the next morning and I had a game that night too. She is the GREATEST.

I fixed it, sorry.

They have drugs for that. Apparently STD are at an epidemic level in some parts of the country.

V-Day and B-Day 2/14 every year

It is my wife's birthday as well as Valentines Day. What I usually do is celebrate in the morning before we go to work and the kids to school. Chocolate cake for breakfast.
I also give her the option of coming with me to the game. She usually declines.
