I know this board is mainly for pregnancy topics, but since I have found so much support here, I thought I would post this topic to gain a little support and share a thought or two!
DH tells me this morning, "I hope you didnt get me anything for Valentines day because I didnt get you anything, so dont expect anything"....I have no idea where that came from! We arent arguing or anything. How hurtful uh?!
Well, after having a bit of a "pity-party" for myself and crying for 1/2 an hour (not because I didnt get anything, but because of what he said and how he said it), I decided to take the bull by the horns sort of speak.
Tonight he works from 7pm to 4am, I am going to open a bottle of Reisling that I've been saving and dying to open and cook my favorite dinner, Garlic Shrimp and pasta with garlic bread and enjoy myself!!!!!
If any of you out there do not have someone to share Valentines day with or your spouse is away or he or she is just being plain crappy, dont let that get you down!!!! Do something for yourself and enjoy!!!!
Valentine's day has always been somewhat of a let down for me. Today I came home with my daughter from a playgroup and there were two long stem roses, red for me, and white for her, with notes written on notepaper from my husband. I was very touched. My dad always used to bring my mom and I roses in those gold boxes. It always made me feel so special and loved. And that is how I felt today, eventhough it was totally last minute. My husband seems to never be able to find the time to do anything before the date. But today I felt very loved and remembered. We always used to get in a big fight on V day. We would be on our way to dinner, have to wait 2 hours, go for a drive, start talking, and next thing you know, we're on our way home. I always had very high expectations because my first boyfriend I ever had, all through highschool and after, doted on me, filled my locker with daffodils, brought me roses, did silly things to make me laugh, embarass me in the flirtatious way. So I am living in reality now, and one single long stemmed rose once a year is beautiful. At least there was no fighting this time.
ROTFLMAO!! I agree Maggie! I went out and had a filet minion...my cravings this preg. are beef and fruit! I did get a haircut and a diamond ring wrap for my wedding ring but the food was the most important to me!!
Smile, life doesn't last that long.
Hey, I just had to share too. My husband came home from work at 6:00 AM (from a 12 hour shift) on Valentines Day, took a shower and crawled in to bed. I simply told my husband, on my way out the door to work, without much other conversation....."Oh you better get some wood and some plans to build a dog house....cause that's where you'll be sleeping tonight."
He brought me a dozen roses to my work at about 11:00 AM.
