Before I met Mr. Rockstar/Truck Driver I didn’t do holidays, not really. Especially holidays like Valentine’s Day. Since we’ve been together I’ve tried to think of unique things to do for the holiday. I wrote him a poem our first Valentine’s Day together. This year I thought I’d do something different as well, especially since we really don’t have the money to buy each other presents.
I’ve been working on my writing room for the past month (or more) and now that I have both desks in the room, his and her’s desks, I thought I’d take the writing room a step further and make it a writing/music room. It wouldn’t take much to combine his love of music with my love of writing (and books).
Last weekend he hung the other shelf, the one that I needed the drill for. After the shelf was hung, I realized I should have put the top shelf more to the right, but oh well. I’m not putting more holes in the wall just to move it. So I improvised. Now it’s our wall, complete with music stuff, books, poetry, a picture of us, etc… And I have to say I like the end result, though I’m not completely done with the wall.
He’s on the road right now, and won’t be home until tomorrow, and he’ll be gone on Valentine’s Day, so I put part of his present together (on the wall) early. I’m not sure if I’ll write him another poem or if I’ll make him a card or cook him a romantic dinner. I’ll think of something.
