but people need to stop complaining and whining about today. dont let today stress you out. if anything your man should do little things for you other times of the year and not need a holiday as an excuse to do so. so if he doesnt get you anything dont freak out and be lucky just to be able to spend time with him. i cant even skype with my husband today, and hes not expected to come home til next month
I totally agree with you! Idc if DH gets me anything. Just getting to spend a few hours before he goes to work and when he gets home is enough for me. Wish you the best. :-)
I feel ya, I have no clue when my boyfriend will be home :(
If I could "like" this I would.
Quoting Summer+[two]:" I feel ya, I have no clue when my boyfriend will be home :("
Quoting ღFrodoliciousღ:" I was right there with you until you had to make it a 'my day is worse than yours so appreciate what ... [snip!] ... cleaned the kitchen, and is giving me a massage later, but he does those things all year round throughout the year, so yeah... "
it was sort of like appreciate what you have and dont just look at the negative. ive been with my man for 5 years and ive never cared if hes gotten me anything on that specific day. so even if its just the typical card and chocolates i was still happy
Quoting ~*Wibbly Wobbly*~:" Love the Avi .... hawt mama!!!"
Quoting ღFrodoliciousღ:" I know, I agree with that, I personally would have left out the bit about not seeing your DH, but that's just me. Like I said, I fully agree with the rest of what you said. "
i just couldnt believe my sister in law was complaining her husband/my brother had to work all day when she obviously knows at least he will be home at some point today to spend time with her. i mean heck she shouldnt need valentines day as is she thinks every other day is all about her anyway
I agree. I wish my husband could be home to spend today with us. But his mistress(the army) has him busy in the field where he will be for over a week *sigh* Well on the plus side I get to have my favorite meal of all time (stroganoff) because he's not home and hates it lol. He does things to show he loves me all the time We don't need a hallmark holiday for that lol.
Quoting Rissa ♥ Cole:" :("
yea, hes not in the military or anything, but he works offshore and it could be 50 days or 15, i really have no clue. Then when he is in it will be anywhere between 3-9 days and he will be gone again :/

I think our husbands share a mistress :D Mines in the field training for a month out of state.
When it comes to these kinds of "holidays" DH and I just ask eachother "We gonna do gifts this time?" and if we feel like it, we do, lol.
This year we did. I got him a movie, he got me a video game. It all worked out.
I think people shouldn't expect something huge and amazing on V-day, especially since it's not even a personal type of holiday. An anniversary is something special because it's YOURS. Not v-day.

This is what we do lol. This year we didn't do anything. He had to work late so when he did get home he had the pizza I ordered for dinner and we watched galactica. Nothing special, tis what we do most nights minus the pizza :)
I don't expect anything and I agree it is annoying sometimes when people complain.
It's just another day like any other.
