Valentines Day






My subject is, If you had the chance, would you go to an ANTI VALENTINES DAY party and why?  It was submitted by   .

Here goes:



Would I??? WOULD I??? You bet ya!!!!!!! Why???? Well, let me fill you in on that.


You would think that being a married person would mean that Valentine’s Day would never suck again. And if you thought that way, you would be WRONG!!! Oh, so WRONG!!!!!

I have married a very practical, very unromantic man. I can count on one hand the number of romantic things he has done in the almost 22 years we have been a couple. SIGH…….

One year he even said, “But I thought Valentine’s Day was just for kids.”

Yes, people, I did let him live but it was  Very Close Thing.

At least if I went an Anti Valentine’s Day Party, I would be around people that know how I feel! They would “get me”. We could sit around and dis stupid St Valentine and Cupid until we felt better!

We could knock back a few drinks and play “Shoot Cupid with an Arrow” (like “Pin the Tail on the Donkey” only way more violent).

Yeah, that sounds like FUN!!!!

We could take a page from “Valentine’s Day” and beat the heck out of a large, heart-shaped pinata!

Sounds like a good time to me!!!!


Now, before we all go and beat the snot out of The Hubby, I will tell you the most romantic thing he ever did.

It was Valentine’s Day 2003. A few weeks before I had had life saving surgery. My gall bladder was sooooo bad that the doc said I would not have made it past the weekend (this is a whole other story where I rant and rave about our health care system).

The Hubby suggests that I call my Dad and see if they will babysit the kids that night. It was YUCKY out. I wasn’t really feeling it but I agreed to call anyway. (Little did I know that he had prearranged this with my Dad.) Then I set out to take the kids to Dad’s.

When I got back the house was empty! Hmmm… WTH??? Then I noticed a little box tacked to wall. WTH???

I opened the box and found a note. The note said to “go next door”.

I went to his friend’s house next door and he had another box for me. That one said “go to Kim’s work”.

I went to the store that my friend Kim worked at and she had another box for me. That one said “go to my work and look under the sink in the break room”.

So off I go. I get to The Hubby’s work and found ANOTHER box. This one said “Hampton Inn room 223”.

I get there and knock on the door. The Hubby opens it and he actually had FLOWERS and CANDY and a stuffed BEAR!!!!

Who are you and what did you do with my husband????

It was the best Valentine’s Day I have ever had.


Maybe I should remind him of this???



Now, don’t forget to check out the amazing bloggers who are sure to be MUCH more entertaining than I am!
