A Valentine's Decision

I love my husband, I do.  He wants me to write a post about our sex life and I won't, and he sortof understands but would love to be the subject of an unadulteratedly passionate post. well.   The first sentence of the post is pretty much how far thats going to go. 
Valentine's is tomorrow, and I do believe the holiday is a hoax of sorts and I, for one, still suffer from some of the adolescent angst that ends with me being disappointed at the end of the day, and I am tired of it.  tired. I am 37 years old and I declare myself done with Valentine's Day. I love shows of affection, I do.  I like tulips in the spring.  I love chocolate chip cookies straight from the oven.  I do.  but I don't like the pressure to squeeze in 'purchased' affection on a day that someone else has chosen... facebook is awash right now with people showing off rings and if thats what you like, than fabu for you.  But I am done. I want no jewelry. I want nothing. well,  I like my husband, I'd like him to come home for dinner that night. I'd like the kids to eat their food, I'd like to get by without any yelling. . . and then I want to watch a movie and go to bed.  or maybe watch Glee, if I can... and mostly, I want to not pay attention to the makebelieve hysteria of society that tells me I need John Cusack to show, or some shadowguy from the jewelry box company.... because they mean nothing at all to me, and the real hubs means it all to me.
so there.

Yes, okay...I know you are right. I have clung far too long to the John Cusack dream. I find Valentine's a smidge amusing and that's it.

I've been, not anti, just non-believing in the day of Valentine's, forever. Commercial holiday, frustrating excuse to get STUFF. No thanks.
Christmas is quickly becoming that too and I'm fighting hard to keep it about family, love, peace, hope, togetherness - good stuff.
