THERE'S ALWAYS A BUT...
If I can go the ENTIRE day on Thursday without seeing a million pictures of bouquets of flowers and other girly romantic shit clogging up my Facebook feed it will be a Valentine's Miracle.
The Hubs knew the way to my heart last year! I posted a picture of the card rather than the flowers!
Confession: I still have the card sitting on my desk from last year. WHAT!?!?! I like to be reminded sometimes!
Because HONESTLY, I don't give copious amounts of rat turds that your man is "so perfect and thoughtful and sent me flowers on VALENTINES DAY!"
He's not perfect and thoughtful, HE'S SMART!
He SHOULD be sending you flowers on Valentine's Day.
Show me a picture of your beautiful bouquet on August 2nd or any other "just because" day and we'll call him thoughtful then!
Here's what a Valentine's Day looked like pre-children for The Hubs and I:
The Hubs tells me to pack an overnight bag. We're going to dinner and staying the night somewhere.
He surprises me with dinner at a very fancy restaurant and a stay in one of Dallas' nicest hotels.
We enjoy each others company all night, have some drinks, and spend quality alone time together all night. Bow chicka wow wow.
Annnnd here's what a typical Valentine's Day looks like now:
Hit the gym for a good sweat session.
Come home and The Hubs tells me to get dressed that we're going to dinner.
I dry shampoo the bejesus out of my hair and throw on a non-sweaty bra.
We go to some place loud as hell (read: Chili's) so all the other restaurant goers don't complain about my kids (read: MJ) yelling at the top of his lungs and throwing food and toys on the floor.I don't get to finish my meal because I'm too busy picking up said toys that MJ repeatedly throws on the floor and spend all my time sucking down my margarita and trying to get MJ to eat instead of throw all his food on the floor.
Hey, at least I caught a good buzz!
Valentine's Day is a beating.
Maybe one day, when our kids are older it will be all lovey and romantic and hearts and crap again... but now?? Well now it's pretty much lamesauce.
