Valentine's Shmalentines!

Bah Humbug! Valentine's Day is right around the corner. Do you care? Are you excited? Or do you just wish it would go away. In all the conversations I have had about this, most people either don't care one way or the other. OR they dread it.

Hmmm. How do I feel about it. I guess it's cool. For some people. HOWEVER When I was single I felt like EVERYONE was in on this incredible moment of love and flowers and chocolates and dinner and... well, you get the picture.

Then I got married, and for the first few years, my husband made every effort to make sure it was a special occassion for us both. He is such a sweetheart. But it turns out I AM A CURMUDGEON!  While I adore my husband Alan, Valentine's Day to me is about flowers that you just have to throw away when they die a few days later, and standing in line, waiting for a table for dinner even after you called ahead. So you sit or stand around waiting and waiting and don't get to eat until 8:30 or 9:00. Then, I have to get up at 3:30 a.m. to get to work. Yup. I don't need no stinkin' holiday to show my hubby how much I love him.

I do love the card thing, I must admit. I love searching for just the right card that expresses our love for each other. I also like giving Valentines to friends and family. 

So Happy Valentines Day... If you are into that sort of thing.
