I hope you all had a fabulous Valentine's day. Here's how mine went:
After work my husband surprised me with a beautiful bouquet of calla lillies. Then we went to eat a romantic tete-a-tete dinner at Pastalli's, then we went to see one of the movies that I've been wanting to see for a while "The Pursuit of Happyness", we came home and had wild sex. Then we watched lost. After that he checked our lotto tickets and we had won the jackpot, and I told him that we were finally pregnant.
Yeah, that was totally made up. I wanted to forget for the time it took me to write that paragraph, that my DH (D does not always stand for "dear" husband) did not acknowledge Valentine's day whatsoever. *pouts* Maybe he was waiting to do something really awesome for our 5th "Engagement Anniversary" on Feb 15th? Nope.
Why must I be such a girl and care about this overrated artificial made up holiday anyway? I don't know... could it be all those years of not having a boyfriend on v-day? The year my high expectations quickly crashed down when my then serious boyfriend greeted me in sweatpants and microwaved chicken balls? Might I add that the sweatpants had elastics at the ankles. And that I had gotten him every single thing he had recently mentioned fancying? Or could it be all those v-days where I would receive about 30 Hippopotamus paper valentines in my paper bag valentine mailbox because everyone had the same valentine cut-out book and there happened to be a valentine featuring a Hippo on it?
I don't know... but is a LITTLE romance too much to ask? One of my 2007 resolutions was to start a card collection so that I would never have to run to the store at the last minute to get one. Especially since I'm VERY picky about the cards I chose. I literally will spend hours in the card store reading every single card for the specific occasion. In french AND in english. Never know. Well anyway, last month I bought a nice card storage box which already contained a blank generic card collection. He could have taken one of the cards and signed it and given me a card that I bought myself! That would have been almost acceptable.
Hey how weird is it that there's a woman waiting for the bus outside my office window holding a single red rose? Oh yeah and the worst part about a non-v-day v-day is seeing all those women walk to their cars downtown holding their v-day loot.
So anyway, since I'm a government employee after all, I've decided to extend his deadline until the end of February. I hope he at least sends an e-card!
