Let down again...

I hate holidays, well, I love them, but I hate them because my husband does not celebrate them. Every holiday I get my hopes up in anticipation thinking that this is the holiday that my husband might get the clue that I would enjoy celebrating it, and every time, my hopes are dashed by 10am. Im not talking flowers and candy, jewels and furs...I'm talking a stinking card, hand made for all I care! So Saturday I wake up, make my coffee and give Kevin his card. He just looks at me and then goes, "Oh!, I was going to make you breakfast!" 2 hours later, he's still sitting on the couch, and still no breakfast...I tell him to forget it. We head to town to go get groceries and we stop at the movie place to return the DVD's we had rented last week, he TELLS me, "I am going to run into Drugmart and get you are card." I just look at him...then I say, " you know what, it's not worth it if you don't think about it before hand. I don't want to sit in the car while you go pick me out a card and then come back ans ask to borrow my pen to fill it out." He just doesn't get it. So of course I mope around the rest of the day, cause I'm sick of there being no romance in our relationship. I can only do so much. I made a nice dinner that night: steaks, baked taters, fresh green beans, and rolls...I get a thanks, no help with the dishes, while he goes and plops his butt on the couch and is asleep by the time I get done. It's enough to make a girl cry. So, in order to cheer myself up, I am going to buy a valentine's day present to myself tomorrow...the last two books of the twilight series...pooh on you kevin. I will always have Edward.


  1. He's taking you for granted. Good for you for doing a little something for yourself Haley! I would do the same thing. xoxoxo!

  2. Men are dopes. Plain and simple. My husband did the same thing to me. I got him a card, hoping that he would at least do the same, be sentimental just a little. I know money is tight for us this time of year, but even a hand written note would have been nice, for pete's sake! But nada. So I feel your pain. Men are not romantic (well...very few) and they don't understand why it's important to us. And sadly, they just can't help the way they are! I should know better - I don't know why I get myself all upset - and let it ruin my entire day. I'm boycotting Valentine's Day from now on!

    So, yourself something nice. Give yourself an Edward treat :)

  3. I celebrate with me and for me all the time! I bought myself chocolate for valentines day, I buy myself xmas, bday, and anniversary gifts too!

    someone's gotta!

    plus, if you pick it out you know youll love it!

  4. I completely agree with the other gals - throw your own party, celebrate yourself, buy yourself that present you've been eyeing. I've learned to do that and the end result is so nice!
