Ain't (Married) Love Grand?

For Valentine's Day this year, I was gifted a flushing toilet from my husband.

No, really.

I came home from work yesterday afternoon and he said, Hey, Sweetie, guess what I got you for Valentine's Day?

A working toilet!

I laughed out loud. Then I smiled.

This means I no longer have to fish around in the tank of the toilet with the wire hanger to hook the little flap that I have to pull up to flush the toilet. All I have to do is push down the handle to flush the toilet and that makes me very happy.

Who says romance is dead?

Did any of you get a Valentine's gift that pales in comparison to mine?


  1. Sounds like a perfect gift for a farm house

  2. This thoughtful gift makes the Symphony Chocolate bar I received from my honey, pale in comparison.

    Enjoy! (that kinda doesn't sound right, does it? lol!)


  3. What a sweetie! I told hubby not to spend the money on anything for me this year! After 39 years he's still my Valentine!!!

  4. The things that make us women happy *giggles*!! It's the little things that matter, right?! Our Valentines Day was spent at our daughters rodeo finals LOL! I did get a sweet card and chocolates to start my day though!

  5. Hallelujah! I've had to do that before too, it's not exactly fun!

  6. Ignoring the fact it about a toilet?...that "thought" was really sweet. That is sooo like something my DH would do. He's all about being practical. You guys will last forever.
