Default Oh,, do I dare say it? VALENTINES day????

Gahhhhhh!!!!

Standing shoulder to shoulder with the rest of the last-minute-husbands, picking thru the wrinkled and fingerprinted cards to find "that one" that says it all. (And isnt addressed to grandma)
Lovey plush animal? Box of chocolates? James Avery's latest "charm" ???

Guess what I'm going to do on Valentines day?


Sleep!

I have my kids that day which is awesome. Otherwise I would be celebrating first V-Day without my wife in eleven years, so damn depressing. I'm just going through the divorce, wish I was on the other side like you guys, I can't seem to imagine anything good happening in my life now, that is not related to my children.

Well, considering that my ex never gave a crap about Valentine's day, I guess it won't be too difficult for me this year. I think we celebrated Valentine's once (at the very beginning). I got sick of asking him if we could do something. We never went out for our anniversary either. He never wanted to do anything special. So, I'll go to work and come home like I do every other day. Blah!!!!

So.....my bf informed me that he HATES Valentines Day and never does anything for it. I am completely ok with that since he told me ahead of time....I won't be expecting anything. He is nervous that I will be upset in the end. lol Honestly ok with it. No pressure for either of us that way! I like all other holidays, but really V-day is just a blah one for me. So I will get my boys all something and just enjoy a chill day! Sounds perfect actually!

Since I never got any V's Day cards or gifts when married, this year won't be any different!

It is a silly stupid holiday really it is. To you on your own peoples this Vday. Go get your self a massage or buy your self something really cool. (Discounts on jewlery at this time of year)

Personally I hate a Holiday that make people crazy stupid about things like cards, flowers, chocolates, and dinner. The whole dang year is full of days that my H can show me how he feels about me.
Yep I hate the Vday.

When given a choice of a day for inducing childbirth for my last child (my kids have to be popped to come out, after that they're very speedy - less than an hour start to finish!) I chose Valentine's Day. So I always have something to celebrate, the birth of my last child. I gave her a middle name of Therese, saint whose flower is the rose, and is the saint of the ordinary.
Whenever I write out my daughter's full name, I am reminded of how special all the ordinary days are, and how easy it is to get lost on the 'special' ones. Cupid needs to bid high even with a trump card to break even on that one. My tango group is having a V-day dance though, and I got a 'new' (thrifted) red dress, strapless, made for tango...so for one night I'll be a sucker for love, at least the idea of it. I mean, it seems wrong not to be in the spirit, and while it takes 2 to tango, one can embrace the spirit of romance and not just sit around and let a good dress opportunity go to waste.

My favorite holiday is Bobby Burns day. At least he was honest about his meanderings, wrote darn good poetry that sounds good recited drunk, and it involves a bagpipe, ceremonial parade and ingestion of haggish, and Scotch. :-) Valentine's Day is for amateurs. Oh, and this year there is a Sadie Hawkins Day which I may or may not take advantage of.
