Primpo's view Valentine's Day

Primpo's View Valentines day


Not everyone has their special someone on valentine’s day.

When I go into a restaurant on a normal day, I especially watch the couples at tables. Some of them are engrossed in deep conversation. Some of them are staring off into the distance like they don’t want to be there. Some are being put down by the other partner. The list goes on and on. I listen to my friends who are married and some of their stories are unbelievably funny about their spouses. Then I have girlfriends who aren’t married and the boyfriends buy them all kinds of things for valentine’s day. Is that trying to gain brownie points?  It is difficult to imagine being in their shoes sometimes. Sometimes I wish I was in their shoes but that is so unrealistic because they really don't have the responsiblity of house, car and bills. So definately they should enjoy their time.  Even if they are serious but not commited.

I look forward to valentine’s day. It happens to be my wedding anniversary. My husband likes to play the part that he doesn't have a romantic bone in his body.  I happen to know that its's simply not true.  I hear the romance in the music that he plays. He thinks I'm not listening.  I also see it in some of the things that he does, like making breakfast for the kids, supporting me in my weightloss goals, Telling me that I could go back to school when the time is right.  He is even asking me about my blogging lately which is highly unusual for him. This valentine’s day will be 13 years for us. I would really like to make it special and I don't know what to do.  See our relationship has suffered some hardships in the last few years and if you read any of my blogs you would start to understand some of the things we went through as husband and wife.   I think it was a mistake to get married on this day because everything is so damned expensive.   Yeah the idea is a romantic one but to tell you the truth, we haven’t really gone out on the very day the entire time we are married. It’s always the day before or the day after. Hopefully it won’t be that way this year. I am taking off of work to go away with him, even if we have to get on the train. So if anyone has any ideas at all I would be glad to hear them. We have to plan soon… remember my car is very bad so by train or bus… lol.. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone. I was thinking NY but let me know what you think.  I'd be greatful.  Happy Valentine's day everyone.

      thanks sherrylou57... its hard sometimes to see through some of the thick fog that marriage builds up. You have ups and downs, you have good times and bad times, but when you could love each other even through the bad times that is what true love is. so even though he's not Mr. Romantic, like I would like him to be, he was there for me when I needed him the most and he didnt even think of calling it quits, I think when other men would of, so really he is more of a man than alot that I know. I have to remind myself sometimes because he can be so darned stubborn and aggrivating. but he stayed with me through terrible, terrible times. and I didnt blog about the worst.

      Hi primpo, I think Valentine’s Day is so over rated, if you love someone why not treat them special every day and not just on Valentine’s Day.

      Great hub!!!
