You probably guessed by the picture above that me and Valentine’s Day are not friends. If you are & are looking for mushy things for me to say about it now is probably a good time to stop reading.
Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate Valentine’s Day cause I’m single and I don’t have anyone to buy me anything or anyone to go out with or cuddle with. Even if I was all of the above I wouldn’t dislike V-Day for those reasons. No, no, no. I’m married and for most of the years that I’ve been married my husband has always bought something, even thought I’ve told him a millions times not too, it just seems like a total waste of money. The reason I hate Valentine’s Day is because
IT’S NOT A HOLIDAY!!!
It’s just a way to boost the economy.
* A dozen of roses $100, on a regular day $12….holyasswhatthefuck!!!
* A box of chocolates $20, on a regular day $5….say it with me….jeezusmotherofgawd is the economy not bad enough…this is why people are filing for bankruptcy
* Everything is red and rosy and heartsy for like 3 weeks in ALL THE STORES. I swear after V-Day is over I can’t stand the color red until May.
* We made the mistake of going out one year for V-Day. We waited for like 45 min to be seated only to be given a “Fixed Menu”, translation: crappy menu; about 5 things to get; all crappy below average meals, I think McD’s had better choices than this place not to mention our bill was outrages!
Don't misunderstand, I am romantic. I love romantic things but I don't need a "day" in a year to do it & I don't need someone to tell me when to do it. My husband and I do it when we have time, we show each other that we love each other everyday (unless we're mad at each other...no love than).
I just never understand what’s all the hype about it? Shouldn’t you show your partner you love them everyday? Why does spending $200 on roses and candy show me my husband loves me? Let me tell you what tells me that he loves me; cleaning the dishes, taking the kids sometimes so that I can have some “me time”, a hug and kiss in between a hectic day. Being a shitting person all year long & than doing something for V-Day doesn’t make for a good relationship. I know how much my husband loves me & I know where we have issues. Nothing he or I can do on V-Day that will change that. The only thing V-Day does is boost the economy & frankly with two kids I’m in no mood to boost the economy with a box of Rose Chocolates.
