WHO CARES?? That's right! That's my opinion. Who cares if it's a made up holiday for consumers. In my opinion if it is made to celebrate the ones you love than it can't be a bad thing. No one is forcing you to buy presents, or make something or go out to a fancy meal.
For example what did I get for Valentine's Day... A container of Baked Beans! Yep you heard right and do you think I'm offended. Nope I think it's hilarious. My husband handed them to me with a card and said, "Happy Valentines Day! It's the gift that keeps on giving"
You got to love that right?
In our house we have the family motto of "Family First", it's a pretty simple concept and it's really easy to say to our children when they are fighting (although it kind of seems to lose some of it's value when you are gritting your teeth and saying "Family (stinkin) First"! ).
So any day that is about putting your husband or children or grandchildren first is fine by me. And for all of you Valentine's Day Whiners out there. Get over it! Who cares if you didn't get what you wanted, it's not about you it's about them. If you got them something and celebrated Them, then you did your job and that really is all that matters.
Cause there is always next year!
So what did I do for him for Valentine's Day? While he was at his Wednesday night Stake meeting, I went up to the Dental School (while a neighbor watched the monsters) and decorated his rollable cart. Yes cheeso galore, but I think I did a cute job.
Who is that model in the pic?? Oh silly that's just me!
Yes Adam, You get this for eternity! How do you like that!!
