THROUGH THE YEARS....
I had to work at "Karma" on Valentines Day. I love that we have been so busy at this salon, last year my January and February were so bad I had to quit that shop and relocate to a different salon, well I think third time is a charm, because I ahve been nothing but busy at this salon, and I am nothing but thankful, and I love it.
So it was nice to be somewhere I loved being to start my Valentines Day off!
Anyway this happens to me every holiday, every birthday, every special occassion...
I always feel like Billy forgot me, so strange, when he remembers me I want to hang myself I hate the gushy awkwradness, I have ruined eveything for myself I guess you could say...
He had flowers delivered to me at work once (10 yrs ago), I freaked out a little, I told him don't ever do that again, I can't stand when everyone is like ohhhh look at your flowers and then they are prompted to make a big deal and make me feel so strange or they feel the need to ask a million questions. I think now that he is my husband I would be ok, because now its easier he is my husband, and thats that.
He has surprised me with dinners, and jewelry galore, and I wear it for a little bit, but then it gets placed in my jewelery box or lost. Yup you heard me, LOST. He bought me a really thick Omega and I wore it for awhile - the truth is the thing is so darn thick I feel like I need mega jewelry to go with it...I do love it, but its thick!! And its Gold, and I am more into white gold then yellow gold but thats fine I have it just in case I ever switch back!!!
Our Second Valentines Day he thought it would be nice to go to dinner with another couple, which it was, and this is when I met Liz, but she was just discovering new things about herself and she was droppin bombs all over the place!!! Anyway it was quite an eventful evening and Billy gave me a beautiful amythyst bracelt, which was stolen out of my car about five years ago - long story, but that was that.
Then on our 5th Valentines Day he gave me a tennis bracelet which I eventually lost - just slipped off my wrist somewhere in the King of Prussia Mall, and again that was that...
So anyway this year - I went to work, and then when I got home at 5:30 he was all ready to take me shopping and to dinner, so the forgot thought had left my mind quickly, and I changed and off we went!
I got a pair of hip slung pants from the gap and a new pair of Seven Jeans, love them!!! I wanted a new phone but since the phone I want is expensive and my contract is not up til April, its going to take some creative bargaining on my end. Anyway then we went to dinner at 99. We had never been there together before so it was actually very nice. The snow was falling outside so that made the evening even a little more fun. It was the first time that we just paused and laughed and got silly together. I mean I was pretty silly - but ya know what one alchoholic beverage does to me...I get extremely happy!
So all in all it was a very happy evening and we had a good time, and I just feel like rather then being pressured into the whole obligation of Valentines Day, we really just celebrated us, and it was a lot of fun.
Sometimes I miss the younger us, the wild couple that was always doing something fun, we are way more toned down now, we know how to have a good time, its just rare that we do! We both work so much and my husband has become so much of a home body, yes I mean hermit, really I just think he likes to relax. Me on the other hand I could go out and stay out for hours. I have no quams about working 12 hours and then running errands, which I think drives my husband crazy, If I just come home then I get bored and then I fall asleep, so there is no point I have way too much energy, yet I find myself feeling that shopping and running errands is more satisfying then the party person I once was.
So this is who we are becomig and as the years go by and the holidays come and go I thinK we are finding that we really do love the company of one another and all the things that come along with who we are. So Happy Valentines to us and to many more to look forward to!
