And here we are again. And just in case you’re wondering, yes, I still have a rather fond dislike of this holiday. Some things never change.
I’ve been wondering what to do this year for Pseudo Valentine’s Day. Part of me is ready to throw in the towel on this annual crusade and just give in, but how does that improve the situation? If I do something because I gave up, that’s almost worse in my mind. Sigh… I guess it’s just a good thing that Courtney loves me for me.
I was at the eye doctor on Saturday, and I just shy of actually bought something for V-Day. I honestly did. Almost. What finally stopped me was the fact that I had just spend just shy of $500 for two new pairs of glasses and the knowledge that we’d be soon spending a lot of money on fixing Myron’s eyes and on the house improvements that need to be done quickly.
Ah, the practical, frugal sense in me strikes again.
Right now I’m leaning toward making her a nice dinner on Sunday. Another thought would be to abandon her on Saturday to a carefree night without having to worry about or watch anyone. She likes that, and Nosurfgirl lets us raid her house and play around when we do.
She’s also very fond of miniature roses, and I could be pushed to get her a small pot of mini roses for the house. She’d like that a lot as well. Decisions, decisions, decisions.
On other news, this was the first year we had Katherine give Valentines to other people, and I laughed when she complained of writing her name on a Valentine card for the tenth time. Oh the pains of childhood…. Having to write your name ten times….
p.s. Myron’s doctor appointment for his eyes is scheduled for Feb. 22. Right now it looks like either an eye patch or out-patient surgery depending on what the actual problem is. We’re feeling good and confident.
