I really enjoyed valentines day when I was single. That was actually Andy and mine 3rd date. I enjoyed planning what we would do on the day and all that stuff.
The last four valentines that Andy and I have been married we have gone out and I've come to see that this holiday is very over-rated and probably invented by hallmark and restaurants. I have several examples to back this up.
1st example:year before last Andy and I went to an expensive restaurant. The food was $$$ put very yummy but the room was very small and was crammed full of people. We felt like we were sharing a table with our neighbors on our right and left. And to make it even more interesting the couple on our left were two ladies making out..I'm not kidding.
2nd example: last year, we pick a different restaurant together and started early to get the reservations. Again the valentine's dinner was $$ about 74$ a plate which we managed to barely swallow and then the hostess informed Andy there were two time options 5 pm and 8:40 pm. Great we could eat at 5 pm and spend alot of $$$ and be hungry again by 9 or we could eat at 8:40 and stay up all night with heart burn because of the late meal!
That s when I have come to the conclusion that this holiday is over-rated. My husband, asked me kindly if I would still feel this way about valentines, if we had gotten a normal eating time slot...hmmmm.... honestly probably not, I'll have to work to get there.
So this year, we are staying at home and we will both eat at no cost$ and with no people making out at the same table as us and at the time we both will like :)
Thank you St. valentines :)
