What Candy Heart Are You?

Your Candy Heart Says "Get Real"

You're a bit of a cynic when it comes to love.
You don't lose your head, and hardly anyone penetrates your heart.

Your ideal Valentine's Day date: is all about the person you're seeing (with no mentions of v-day!)

Your flirting style: honest and even slightly sarcastic

What turns you off: romantic expectations and "greeting card" holidays

Why you're hot: you don't just play hard to get - you are hard to get

Here's the link below if you want to try it:

          Blogthings - What Does Your Candy Heart Say?

I got this quiz from Terry Ann's Journal  I live in soap land and of course, she was HUGS.  Terry Ann is such a sweetheart and has some of the cutest graphics in her journal. I take the quiz, and there it is....I'm cynical...  At first, I thought..NO WAY but then again maybe age and life has made me a bit cynical.  I do love Valentine's Day.  I love all the holidays and the cute graphics to decorate with.  I'm not into expecting big presents....just the continued love and support from my BF who is there for me all the time.  He doesn't make a big deal out of most holidays although he did shower me this year at Christmas.  Most times he showers me all year at unexpected times with things I need.  People laugh because if I mention I need a new iron....there he is with an iron; crockpot; coffeepot....LOL  Things that just pop up and aren't in my budget.  He'll call and see if I want to go to the mall and buys me much needed clothes so I'm not complaining a bit.

But you can bet on Tuesday, he will go out at lunch and buy flowers off of one of the vendors on the street for me.  He's so cute and predictable but I'm touched and always make a fuss.

As far as no one penetrating my heart....way off base.  Maybe they are referring to men and dates because that much is true.  After my fiasco of a marriage, I set my standards super high.  But just about anybody else can penetrate this old heart of mine far too easily.

On to the weather....sunny and 50?  Where's the blizzard?  On the east coast, I believe.  We are expecting an inch or two overnight tonight because we are on the extreme edge of the huge storm...Thank the Lord!  I wasn't looking forward to being snowbound.

So, today, I'm off computer shopping for a back up.  I have a feeling this new computer of mine is going to cause me some major headaches.  I've only had it four months and according to the IT people at work, the power supply box should not have died.  I'm also not happy that my part had to be reordered yesterday and no one has any explanation why the first order never went through.  I do plan on complaining to Gateway about this. 

No more computer venting.  It happened; I'll deal with Gateway.  I'm calling daily now because I've learned the squeaky wheel gets the oil.  And this wheel is squeaking.

But one good thing....I'm getting some much needed housework done.  Joey has been a big help.  He's done at Jiffy Lube and starts back at the cemetery April 1st.  He's been bored and helping me out which is so sweet of him.

And one more thing....keep my mom in your prayers.  I just found out she had a partial lung collapse.  There is a spot in that section that they suspect is a blood clot.  She's feeling better and out and about again.  I haven't gotten a hold of her but talked to my brother.  Of course, he's not the most reliable source of info so I'm trying to get her today on the phone.  I wanted to visit tomorrow but feel a cold coming on (lol...just what I need) and don't want to get her sick on top of everything else.  Needless to say, I'm really worried about this.

HUGS to all............CHRIS

What a cute quiz! Maybe I will try it. I think getting older and having more experience just makes us more realistic, that`s all. I`m glad you have your BF to help you out. I wish I did! I really miss having someone special like that in my life.
Feel better and prayers to your mom.
Have a great weekend.
Love ya...

Chris, will say a prayer for your mom. Your BF sounds like a great guy - you know, flowers and hearts and candy and jewelry are great one day of the year in celebration of love, but celebrating love every day by helping you when you really need it is the best thing! He's a good man.

have fun computer shopping :)

I need to think about getting a new one too, but hate the prospect of changing things over from one to another. But it would be fun to have a better one to start doing graphics with
