Happy Valentine’s Day Tomorrow!

My family knows I DO NOT LIKE bears. At all. So they throw them at me every chance they get. The hubs scores double with this shot. He can claim love, while tweaking me about the bears. To see the full tweakage (set) check out his Flickr page. And just to prove I wouldn’t lie to you, here is some daughter tweaking:

Look, Mom, it’s a bear!

Isn’t she cute, though? I have enough bear soaps to keep me clean until I die and yes, I’m current on all the bear mauling news stories, bear movies, bear shows and cute bear crap.

So, what’s on the schedule for your Valentine’s Day tomorrow? Do you have a totally reasonable and logical fear that your family likes to tweak you about? There are openings in my support group and —> all comments are entered into my monthly drawing for $10 AnaBanana gift card. (Double Score!) Winner is announced in the first blog post of the new month.

    Mine is styrofoam! They know if gives me that nasty kind of chills! So they never lose an opportunity to scratch it around me. I get chills even thinking about it! Good news, though – looks like New York Mayor Bloomberg has decided that styrofoam is the next thing to eliminate! So now I know where I can move to if I can’t take the styrofoam any more! 😀

      LOLOL! Nope, you will not need to fear the styrofoam anymore! How did we manage before Nanny Doomberg came along? LOL!

    Logical fear? I can see being afraid of a real grizzly with a sign around his neck saying “I love you”, but these are plush stuffed teddy bears. As far as I know no one has been mauled to death by a plush, cuddly, white teddy bear or any teddy bear for that matter. So I don’t know if “logical fear” is the phrase I would use.

    As for the bear soaps. When you stay at a lodge or cabin in Yellowstone National Park they have cute green soaps carved to look like bears by each sink. They make great gifts. The real beauty is you can take them home and tweak the wife with the bear phobia without any additional costs. Sweet. Oops, did I just admit to tweaking you. 🙂

      I see a soft, cuddly teddy bear mauling in your future, bubba. Just saying… (grin)

    My family does that all the time. Picks on me with things they know bother me. I think it’s how they show their love? Great post, Pauline!

    Families can be so mean! 😉 I get tweaked about demon squirrels–even if I haven’t said a thing about them in years, my husband will hear a “scary squirrel story” and remind me of my own event. At least he doesn’t buy me squirrels as gifts.

    Tomorrow is all about the first grader’s school events. She gets to address all her cards for her classmates tonight.

      I loved your demon squirrel blog post! LOLOL! Yeah, getting them as gifts…yeah, LOL. And thanks to technology, they can tweak me from everywhere with “bear and me” pictures. LOL

      Oh yes, the annual “address the valentine’s cards” event. When I was little, we had to make them for everyone. It was a complicated process. We had to be “nice” without indicating special preference, or you’d get teased FOREVER. Not easy for a grade schooler. LOL
