In a few hours it will be Valentine's Day. To those who actually like this holiday, I wish you a happy one. To those who hate this holiday, pass the chocolate.
Yep, you guessed it! I'm starting to identify with the latter group more and more each year. If there were ever a holiday that is more anti-single-person than this, I'd like to know which one it is. I'm a mom so I at least get the annual hand-made valentines from my kids. That's the only bright spot to the whole crappy day.
I'm definitely not turning on the television or reading the paper tomorrow. I don't want to watch this year's mass wedding on the steps of the courthouse. Hopefully that foolishness will be over by the time I get to work. If I could hide under the covers until Wednesday, I would.
I don't mind being single. It's nice not having to answer to anyone when I go out, or treat myself to a mini shopping spree. But Valentine's Day just seems to scream at you when you're single. I'll be honest... I miss the sappy cards, the cheap rose from the convenience store, and all the other little things that make this day so "grand". Maybe I'll go pick up a couple dozen cookies or cupcakes on my way to work and leave 'em in the break room. Wow...I feel better already
