Valentine's Day

Berkeley and I really aren't big on celebrating Valentine's Day. We are both very good about showing our appreciation and affection for each other in real life, not just on a "holiday for love". We do get each other cards or chocolate and candies because we both love chocolate and candies, but nothing really big. In all the years we have been together, we have never even been on a Valentine's Day date.

This week I decided to join in on some Valentine's fun and link up with The Life of a Not So Ordinary Wife and have Berkeley answer some fun "How well do you really know me?" type questions. I also answered these questions for a "Newlywed Game" type post.

The Score:

I think he did pretty well considering the randomness of these questions. He got the important questions right. Even more than these questions, he knows my quirks. He knows that if I am holding my head a certain way, it means I have a migraine coming on, sometimes before I even notice. He remembers that the smell of the "natural" floor cleaner makes me want to vomit, and will find a way to get me out of the house to use it. In the summer, he doesn't complain when I have to sleep with my legs out of the blankets which means I flip them over onto him. He accepts the fact that I am a slight germaphobe and if he gets a two-hour report time for an assignment, he'll make sure the dishes are done before he leaves because I hate doing them.
