Today was Valentines Day...
There was no great romance, no boxes of fancy chocolates, no tiara.
There were no cards with hearts and gushy sentiment. There was no fancy dinner. There will be no lingerie. There will be no sexy rumpus (Oh How I Love The Oatmeal!)...
I had cuddly kitties. I had a wonderful compliment on Facebook. I had a nice txt chat. There was a domestic dispute in my apartment complex that was very loud and public and involved gunshots (no injuries/fatalities).
But public domestic dispute aside (it wouldn't be Valentines Day without some woman screeching at her man about "that slut"... well, at least not in MY neighborhood), I am ok with how today went. It's the first Valentine's Day in a long time that I felt neither sad nor angry. It was just a day. And honestly, that's ok.
I DID screw up my first giveaway (on my other blog)... and I am relatively certain that at least one person will conveniently lose my contact info if I ever want to participate in doing a giveaway again. I know that the whole thing made me look like a bumbling idiot but it was new territory for me and I learned from it. I learned how Rafflecopters work and how to find a decent prize when you don't have people chomping at the bit to be sponsors for you.
I think it shows how much of a crazy cat lady I am that I asked Miz Poo to be my Valentine. (She said as long as I am ok with her sneezing in my face, we're good to go! Robyn speaks fluent cat and is an excellent translator!)
So... although the day lacked romance, it was an ok day. I think I'm making peace with a day that has always made me feel unlovable (V-Day and I have a LONG history).
And tomorrow... tomorrow is cheap chocolate day! BRING IT ON!
