Anniversary update

Well it was the reverse of Valentine's day; sort of.

This time I got her a card and some nice chocolate (from the grocery store, but nice, the same kind I got in a nice shop in the Mall for valentine's day). And she got me a gift card from a local store she obviously stopped at today. No card.

Now for Valentine's day I got her and our daughter gift cards to the Saphora make up store. Both a nice variety of chocolate and my wife a good makeup brush set. I got a bag of grocery store candy. M&Ms and the like to bring to the office to put in my candy dish. I invited her to go out but she had scheduled work for that evening. Didn't want to go out the weekend before.
We are definitely not synchronized.
I still feel bad just getting her candy. I know how it hurt me on Valentine's day. I don't want to hurt her but I'm tired of going out of my way trying to be caring, creative and nice when she isn't going to put in the effort. This sucks!

I love the Sephora store down at the King of Prussia Mall...I could live in that store! lol wow what a nice gift, wish I had someone to give me something like that. Hugs, Jazz

The sephora in Times square is a trip. We usually end up there at 11 at night. Bright, full of people, upbeat music playing. I love that whole area at night.
There is a Sephora at Freehold mall; I think that's where it is.
Both the girls like it.

Sounds like my life, my 20th was last week. He did get me a very nice gift but no card. But sometimes its actions and not gifts that mean so much more! But I know exactly how you feel

I'll have a cafe, mocha, vodka, valium latte to go please!

Good girls go to heaven.....bad girls go down!!

My wife does not believe in cards anymore for the most part. Too expensive. My gift card came in a gift bag. That was nice.
20 years! wow.
Understand about actions. It's not all about gifts, especially those in the required category. As you may have read I tried the actions and words things as well.

I'm so sorry to hear that! Its obvious that you are trying to get things with you two back on track, and she isn't helping things. Perhaps you do need to stop being so caring and such. When she realizes all the little things you did before and aren't doing now, maybe it will wake her up some. Hope things work out for you!
