Domestic Bliss Report

Motherhood is hard work. If we don't stick together, we'll all fall apart.

Random trivia

My husband tells me that this place is open late today. Why am I not surprised that he knows this? I laughed out loud when he told me. Hey, I dated a guy who didn't celebrate Valentine's Day or Sweetest Day. Wouldn't even say "Happy Sweetest Day," like it would break his jaw or something. Not a Jehovah's Witness, either. I hope he's over that now...

For Johnny Cash fans, this is pretty cool.
In 1953, as a G.I. intercepting Russian Morse code transmissions, Johnny Cash became the first American to learn of Josef Stalin's death.

I'd never heard of Sweetest Day before. I had to google it to figure out what you were talking about. They don't have it in either Texas or Massachusetts. Interesting.

I've been told it's a Sander's/Detroit thing. It makes sense with it being in October.

Be sure to tell Dom. :)

I had never heard of sweetest day either until I met my husband. We don't celebrate it. I don't get it.

They have Sweetest day in Northern Ohio, also. But, I hadn't heard of it in any of the other places where I have lived, California, New Jersey, and the South.

I've heard it's a Great Lakes region thing: Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin. Maybe Illinois and Indiana too...

I know I had never heard of it until seventh grade. My science teacher was an unspeakably poor lecturer, I had a window seat, and there was a florist across the street from our classroom. Yeah. That's about all I remember from our non-lab days of Life Science.
