Valentines sucks, I use to dream of having a bf/husband to spoil me on v day, and now for the past 3 years I despise it. I've tried in the past to get a card and something small while I get the kids things, but usually break down posting on here because they don't make v-day cards for wh's, but this year I'm not doing anything. And it feels good, I'll let the kids pick out a box of candy or something, but I'm tired of trying and feeling fake.
This year I'm spending v-day with my babies, they don't have school, and it's the first day of girl scout cookie booth sales. So me and my daughter will do our first sale late morning, then me and my babies will have our traditional heart shaped pizza lunch, and of course chocolate, then me and my daughter have another sale from 4-6. Not sure what we'll do for dinner, but I really don't care. I just want to spend it with the ones that actually love me, and that's not wh. He won't get home until around 7/8 anyways, never has gotten off early for vday, he'll probably stop at the store on the way home and get me chocolate, whatever they have left that he thinks I'll want, and that will be that.
I just want my babies to have a good day and a fun day, no stress or tension (except for the first cookie sale of the year stress). There's no reason they can't feel all the love and happiness on vday, even if I don't.
What are your plans, avoiding, doing something special with your kids, or with ws?
