Good Morning Ladies and Happy Valentine’s Day. I am saying that because it is Valentine’s Day, in my opinion the most worthless overrated holiday. However, this is just my opinion. I don’t see anything “Romantic” about a 3 hour wait at a Restaurant or $100 Flowers that die in a few days. Of course, many would probably say that I am bitter, but the truth is, I have my Valentine, actually I have 2. Yes, I have been the betrayed spouse, but my relationship has lasted through it. We have always spent every holiday together, and in my situation, the affairs were quick sexual affairs. Thankfully, I have never had to deal with an emotional attachment. So no, I do not hate Valentine’s Day because I am alone, because I am not alone.
I was asked what I would like to do today, and I just want to stay home because the love of my life would not be able to go out to a romantic dinner with us. He is 5 years old and would have to stay home with a babysitter and after all, he actually asked me if I would be his Valentine weeks ago when Disney Jr. started airing their Valentine’s Day shows on TV! Sorry for my other Valentine, he just waited too long.
I think it is sad that we have to have a day to show that we love and are loved, a day where a man brings you flowers and candy because he is obligated –after all, all your friends are getting them. Now maybe I am wrong, but I don’t want to receive flowers just because you’re supposed to get them, I want to get flowers “just because”. I don’t think that there needs to be a day to remind that person that you love them, because you should be reminded that you love and are loved every day, not only on February 14th.
So today, I will be spending the day with my best Valentine, and when he falls asleep tonight, perhaps I will watch a movie with my 2nd Valentine! I do not want flowers; I do not want jewelry or candy. He knows this, but of course I will probably end up with something because again –I am quite sure he feels obligated, what would his friends think? The best thing would be for him to just get me M&M’s. Really, I don’t really need to eat them, but there is something sentimental with us and M&M’s. Hey, they are cheap, but I would prefer that over diamonds and flowers. You know why? Because he would have had to put thought into it. That would mean that he was thinking about me not just rushing around to get me something I do not want or need, but something that would make me look in his eyes, smile and know that he “remembers”.
So ladies, whether you are together or alone, just remember that today is just another day! Do something for yourself whether it be reading, just lying around or treating yourself to something special because you deserve it!
P.S. I have no excuse for not blogging although I have been very busy lately! I miss all of you, I catch up when I can and I hope everyone is doing well!
