It didn’t take too many years of marriage to realize that if Valentine’s was going to have a romantic dinner it had best be at home.
While the hubby has many wonderful traits, thinking ahead to make dinner reservations for one of the busiest nights of the year isn’t one of them.
It’s possible he wouldn’t even remember Valentine’s unless he saw it on the calendar or someone reminded him.
Then he would call and suggest we go out for dinner. Good deal I would think, but when the time came we’d go first one place then another only to find out there was no room.
After a couple of hours of being turned away, we’d go home, both of us a little irritated, for a bowl of cereal or on a good night a grilled cheese sandwich.
Now we look back and laugh at those attempts as we enjoy dinner at home. Sometimes it’s just the two of us, other times we have friends join us.
I think the other husbands are quite happy to come here as it takes the pressure off them to plan a special night out. For all of us, it’s an enjoyable evening in a relaxed setting with what is usually pretty good food.
No matter how you acknowledge Valentine’s, I hope it is just right.
i so appreciate your visit and especially the comments you leave behind
