Okay, maybe I was a little premature when I wrote that my last blog was my last blog. I just felt guilty like I wasn’t writing enough mostly because I don’t have a lot of time to spare. I won’t promise that I will write regularly but I will say that I will write when I am really really motivated, and I am really really motivated today. Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and for the past 5 years or so this has been the dreaded holiday for me. (I am still not that big of a fan, as most of you know, thinking that this holiday has become a more commercialized guilt trip than Christmas.) This year I won’t say that I am excited about it, maybe a little, but I am certainly not dreading it as badly as in previous years. This year I will not be crying, angry, jealous or heading out to some cheesy bar for “single people to celebrate V-day together”. I won’t avoid FaceBook to see how wonderful all of my friend’s husbands and boyfriends are and what they sent to their offices. This year I won’t put Adele’s album "21" on repeat as well as songs like "Gravity" by Sara Bareilles and Dave Matthews "If Only" and sit in a corner rocking back and forth while chewing on my hair (okay it was never that bad), but you get the picture. It has been difficult like it is for most people who want to be in love. This year I will smile, pass out kisses (the chocolate kind!), make homemade Valentines cards (already done) and I won’t get upset when I walk through the sea of balloon ribbons at the Dollar Tree getting Angel a balloon (they are only $1 in case you didn’t know). My new repeat songs are "Adore You" by Miley Cyrus and "Just Say Yes" by Snow Patrol (my new song repeater). Prince Charming may not have rescued me from the highest room in tallest tower and rode off into the sunset with me on his noble stead (Yes I have been watching Shrek WAAAAYYYY too much), but I do have someone that will tell me the 3 words we all want to hear especially on Valentine’s Day and I will be able to say them right back. HAPPY VALENTINES DAY EVERYONE!!!!
