Sweet Sweet Baby

It's that holiest of Hallmark holidays.

Wow, that's a lot of Hs.  I'm sure there is another way, a proper way, to spell "Hs".   I can't be bothered.

I actually made plans to meet a friend out for drinks tonight until he realized it was Valentines.  He's nice enough, but I ain't heading into any establishment on this night.

If anything, I will be spending it with you know who ('s 710).

I have no plans.  I should have plans. I should do something that doesn't involve teddy bears, chocolates, flowers or cards. I guess if I had an idea for dinner, I'd make something special.  Or something at all.

The reality is, even on our worst days, 710 and I tell each other that we love each other. We don't wait until 2/14.....and I don't need to do it with American Greetings.  But we do it daily.

28 years accounts for a lot.  Long ago, I kept thinking that being together shouldn't be so much work.  That is not a slam on him, me or us - but you know at 21, what does one know about life and love.  Just as you're getting one figured out, the other changes or falls apart.

We've got our groove on and know each other - buttons and all, and which ones not to push unless we truly want to start the launch sequence to WWIII.

I don't know where I'm going with this exactly.

Perhaps needing someone to tell you a day to say "I love you" or show your special someone that they're special is a wake-up call for your failure to thrive relationship.  I mean, it's a fine to justify going to get something to eat, but it is not who I am.

On a somewhat other note, but not really - the post I did last year for Valentine's Day is getting all fucking kinds of hits.  I cannot figure it out at all.  Yesterday alone it got 177 views.  I don't understand why it is trending. I mean, I get that it's VD, but what is the draw to little ole me?

Maybe someone people just wanted a laugh for VD.  This post ain't doing it, so last year's will have to suffice.

Still - if you have someone you love, tell them that you do.  Today and everyday.

spouse and I avoid restaurants on this day; too much insanity. instead, we will wait until the weekend and see a movie and have a nice quiet meal.

and you are quite right about your last paragraph.

Another hit for last year's post. I'm sure it's all the Simpson references.

After having worked in the restaurant business for years, I learned long ago to NEVER go out on this night. Lucky me, Serge and I have the same opinion of this day, an excuse to guilt you into spending money on your loved one. We say I love you every day, and we do special things for each other weekly. He did my job this week of folding the clothes. That was awful nice.

The Husbear and I pretty much tell each other that every day, multiple times. It's just how we are. Like y'all, we don't need an "appointed" day to do it.

Funny enough, you wouldn't believe how many couples come in the tattoo studio for matching tattoos. *sigh*

I'd rather have intimate dinner at home with the whole family. I wanna celebrate it with my kids.
