Happy Extended Weekend!
See, I don't do Valentine's Day. I used to, but then I grew up. HA! Now, don't leave me comments complaining about the shriveled up lump of steel where my heart should be or whining that I called anybody immature. Whatever. I think Valentine's Day is dumb. So there it is. My Viking thinks himself the luckiest man on Earth to be married to a woman who prefers beer to wine, steak to salad and thinks Valentine's Day is a colossal waste of time. Now, our Anniversary is another story entirely...
I usually make a few snarky Valentine's heart using this handy dandy Acme Heart Maker. Redheaded Snippet helped me with these:
Don't we sound so bitter and lonely? But as I am very happily married and Redheaded Snippet is too young to date, that theory holds no water. We just think VD is silly. A made-up Holiday women use as an excuse to drag their men around by the tie (you thought I was going to say something else, didn't you?) and make them tell them how much they love them by buying glittery pieces of paper with someone else's flowery words on them and taking them out for a public meal so everyone can see how well trained she has him. Anyway...
What I am excited about is the four-day weekend! No school today and none again on Monday! Now, that, my friends, is worth celebrating. We get to sleep in and sit around in our pjs all day if we want. And that is exactly what we did today. Sweet rest and relaxation. And I'm thinking of getting a pizza and renting a movie to continue the festivities. Or maybe Indian food, we haven't had that in a while. Doesn't that sound lovely?
So, if you're going out for a romantic dinner with your significant other, do enjoy yourself, despite my snarky words. I know a lot of couples really do look forward to Valentine's Day, and if that's you, have a lovely time. As for me and my Viking, we'll probably be cuddled up on the couch watching something on PBS with a bowl of popcorn. Or Redheaded Snippet and I will be watching PBS while The Viking and Man-Cub wrestle on the living room floor. Either way, I'll have a happy Valentine's Day.
