Valentine’s is not a day when I get diamonds, furs or even candy.
Most years I do get roses. They generally come like this which has always made me smile. I mean it takes a little creative thought to come up with something that excuses the hubby from buying flowers and likely greatly reduces his stress level!
As for dinner, the first couple of years we were married, the hubby would come in on Valentine’s and suggest we go out to eat. Good idea except that without reservations, we’d end up driving around for a couple of hours finding no place other than a fast food one that could seat us. It didn’t take too much of that to make me decide we’d be better off having dinner at home.
Well, maybe not. Something about the table didn’t seem quite right. Even though the hearts look fine on the white plates, the setting was lacking, so it was back to the cabinets to see what options were there.
Oops, you won’t believe this, but the hubby just came in and asked if I would like to go to dinner tomorrow night. He even has reservations! Shhh, don’t say anything about those veal chops. They’ll go right into the freezer and keep for another night and, hopefully, make him feel special for no reason.
So, what are your plans for Valentine’s?
