Years ago I would get all excited about what I would wear, run around for the perfect gift and spend hours deciding where we would go. Those days are LONG GONE!
It is pathetic this man-made hallmark holiday gets me so upset. I should be treated like a princess every day, which I am not! So why does it bug me that on February 14 my husband acts like he does any other day of the year? Why do I set myself up for disaster? I know his M.O.,
I know he will stop to pick up a card on his way home from work. I know he will grab some grocery store pre-wrapped carnations (my most hated flower). I know he will ask what we are having for diner and when I say I didn't take anything out he will look at me like I have lost my mind. This show has been a re-run since 2001.
So today I have decided to get my own tulips and I bought a shirt at Marshall's. The kids will love their gifts and I will love the homemade cards I get from them. When Greg gets home I will open my card, put my carnations in a vase and order in a pizza. The biggest decision will be regular or Sicilian.
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!
