Valentines Day?????

I have just realized Valentines Day is this Saturday. Is it all it is it's cracked up to be. Just surfing the net and realizing there are other people out there who will be alone, either by choice or by circumstance. I found a website that has made me feel better about this holiday. the ideas are really great and I was going to take the day off to get some rest as well as maybe something done. Working 2 jobs really takes a toll on the energy levels as well as the house.

My last Valentines Day with my "EX" was not a very pleasant experience. He was soooooo...selfish. I went down and spent the nite with him (we were separated and living in Wyoming) and left for Minnesota to come see my failing Grandmother, who passed away while I was back visiting her. I was so blessed I was able to spend a whole week with her before she passed on. The selfish ex couldn't believe I left him alone on Valentine's Day.

I think it is all in perspective when we put other's needs before our own. I was starting to get depressed about another Valentine's Day flop. Now after reading the above link, I have realized it is us who make our holiday's and event's special to us. all of us single people out there, either by choice or by circumstance. No more depressing Valentine's Day, do something special for yourself. Buy your self a single long stemmed rose, a special dinner, and call someone else who you care deeply about and just make their day. Even though times are tough a phone call can just boost anyone's day and it is fairly a cheap way to be together even when separated by many miles.

I have decided to work this weekend just to get out of the house and not wallow in my own depressing self pity. Why stay home when I can brighten someone else's day. Valentine's day is like Christmas it should happen every day.
I opened my mailbox to a wonderful treat. I had signed up on the Giggle Buttons Club Hopefully I will find some time to trace out the pattern this week and I will have something fun to work on at the mall show. It is soooo....cute :)
Have a great day and God Bless all of you.
