Be My Tootsie Wootsie or I’ll Widdle on Your Footsie


I have never understood the hostility toward Valentine’s Day—which is coming up soon—from many friends and acquaintances.  Whuddup with the hate, yo?

Maybe this is because it was always a fun, family holiday when I was a kid, and this carried through to my adulthood.  My father always gave us chocolate—both myself and my brothers.  So I learned early to associate the day with giving an appreciative little something to ANYONE I love. 

But I have to admit, this year I may not have Ahmed.  He is hoping to get back from business conducted afar, but may not make it.  His trip got interrupted, re-routed, and generally spoiled schedule-wise.  So I kind of feel the grumpiness… for the first time I’m not loving the day of love. 

Hopefully I’ll have my man unit back.  And hopefully if I don’t, I’ll find something to celebrate anyway.  What are your plans?


  1. I don't get a Valentine's Day. Not much of one anyway. It's DH's birthday, so you know, it's all about him.

  2. Not a hater...we just don't celebrate as a couple. I like romantic stuff not when everyone else is having romantic stuff. Big fan of chocolate sales on Feb 15, though. :)

  3. I don't know about anyone else, but I used to hate Valentine's Day because I once got dumped on it. Nice dinner, a little wine, then back to his place where he told me it was over. (Hey, at least he fed me first.)

    I hope Ahmed gets back in time. We're not planning anything. I told my hubs not to get me flowers. He knows I'm dieting, so candy is out. Nope. We're just going to love each other - same as every day. =o)

    We don't generally celebrate as a couple (because it's so overpriced that night), but I have always loved giving random Valentine's Day presents to anyone I love. I can't wait until Amber is older and we can make valentines together. So fun!

    Anyway, her daycare does a Parents Night Out this Friday, so we're going to Melting Pot and taking advantage of the babysitting!
