Valentines Day for One!

Valentines Day has never been big in my life. As a little bookworm I used to see my two younger sisters getting the dates and the flowers and chocolates and I got used to not getting any myself. Even when I was married, the gift-giving was minimal. But now that I am older and wiser, I know that the best Valentines gifts.....Are Those That You Give Yourself!
I thinks I'll get myself an extra large chocolate and maybe something alcoholic. And maybe I'll tape my kids mouths shut for the day so that I can't hear their nagging about how bored they are!
Hope your Valentines Day is everything you wish it to be.


  1. Yes, I will be having some Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia ice cream and my favorite "dessert" drink (see as my V-Day gift to myself.

    I read your blog often and while I don't comment often, you be in my thoughts...

    Teri and the cats of Furrydance

  2. HI!

    I saw the kitten pic on my blog under my list of followers. Thought I'd stop by to see what's up!!

    I'm sooo glad that V-Day is on a Saturday this year. Now I can convince my husband to take the kids and get rid of them for me!!

    Well...not actually get RID OF THEM..
    that sounds so..Soprano-like.

    I really ment to "take them off my hands for awhile".

    Yeah..that sounds more sane.

  3. Teri - Hope you enjoyed your V-Day!

    Sheila - Thanks for stopping by and introducing yourself. Hope to see more of you.

    Maithri - Thanks for your wishes. And thanks for visiting.

  4. Oh yes, that sounds like the purrrfect Valentines day.

  5. i used to loathe valentines day, even went so far as to boycott it and wear all black every year.
    now i enjoy it!

  6. It really a matter of self attitude..if we really didn't like V-day it wouldn't bother us and if we do like it,we can just have fun with it no matter how overly commercial and or depressing it can be.It's just another day in which we make it however we wish ;)

  7. Not sure why I'm not on your followers list anymore? Weird. I've got a new blog!

  8. Hey, I don't know if you've seen my new blog.

  9. mine coulda been better- i got given an exquisite ring- but drama with my son made it a little harsh.
