Flowers. Candy. Barbershop Quartets. That nervvous feeling everytime the florist walked into the receptionist area at the office. Are those roses for me? The tulips maybe? Getting all dressed up for a nice dinner date out with your Valentine.
When I was single, I hated Valentine's Day because there was no one to send me flowers or take me out. I always expected Valentine's Day to be SO exciting once you were dating. It was better but still missing something. Maybe engaged V-Day is better. Never had one. Married V-Day has got to be the best.
Yea, in some ways. There is no mystery over whether or not you have a Valentine this year. Going out to dinner is still possible, as long as the babysitter shows up on time. Flowers at the office? I have never got any so I dont really know what that is like.
Why is it that the holiday focused on romance and love just feels like any other day? This year, its a snow day. So here I am, sitting in the home office while Hubby and Grace play downstairs. Working away. In a few munutes I will make all of us lunch. Then come back to work. ANd then make dinner, give Grace a bath, put her to bed, and probably work some more.
Where did romance and "butterflies in your stomach" and all that go? I miss it.
