Trying to make light of annoying/upsetting/bad things on Valentine’s Day –
Let-Down: I was going to surprise my Darling Husband with chocolate covered strawberries tonight (which he loves). He told me last night he was excited because his mom was making homemade chocolate covered strawberries (which he will have at work with him ALL DAY LONG). Ugh. I told him about my surprise because I was upset and I didn’t want him to feel like he had to pretend to be excited about eating MORE chocolate covered strawberries AFTER work.
Pick-me-Up: I guess there will be more chocolate covered strawberries for ME to enjoy!

@catnip: Oh boo, that stinks. What did he say?
Let down: Well, as I’ve mentioned before on other posts, Fiance and I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day. It was an agreement we made when we first got together. We decided it was too commercialized and silly. Anyways, that being said, Fiance mentioned to me randomly that he celebrated it with his ex once. It bothered me for some reason. Not sure why. It’s on my mind right now, but I’ll get over it.
Pick me up: I bought us cannolis today because I couldn’t resist. Haha.

Letdown: My SO is working and we work opposite shifts, so I won’t see him today. This will be the first V-Day in 5 years I’m spending alone.
Pick me up: I’m not really that upset about it, I’m going to snuggle my cat whether he likes it or not, and make something nice for myself for dinner. 🙂

Let down- This one’s on me…His vday project/gift isn’t complete in time and well obv no ring is a little let down…plus I think I have to cook tonight =
Pick up- SO bought my favorite roses for me last night so he didn’t have to battle men for the leftovers. He got me a potted tea rose to try and grow, too! Big boss at work brought in chocolate covered strawberries mmmmmm

Letdown: My Fiance had to fly home to be with his dad in the hospital (his dad had surgery but is fine; Fiance is just a wonderful son and went to be there for his mom).
Pick me up: My cat might sit on my lap for once, and I get to watch my guilty pleasure TV shows all evening.
@MissBoPeep: Ours are similar!

Let down: Fiance left this morning without wishing me a Happy Valentine’s day. I was upset because I thought he forgot.
Pick me up: When I went back to the bedroom after my shower there was a box of cocolates on the bed with a note saying Happy Valentines day and that he couldnt wait for tonight. Yay! I thought he forgot. Fiance is very forgetful at times.

let down: I don’t think dh even got me a card 🙁 we decided not to do presents this year, but still, no card? I gave him one this morning and he loved it (it was funny…) but he didn’t have one for me….I also was pretty sure he had forgotten altogehter, but we were talking about it last night and he said he hadn’t. We’ve both been busy lately and it feels like we haven’t really been connecting much
ETA: I forgot the pick-me-up– I got a v-day “card,” aka drawing, aka scribbles, from my toddler niece in the mail and it’s super cute 🙂
ETA again: it’s confirmed: dh DID forget and didn’t get a card. he’s making puppy-dog eyes and apologizing, but still. not cool!

Let Down- I just know it’s coming. I’ve been dreaming of my first married valentines day since I was a kid
Pick up- I sprung for the latte this morning instead of my usual coffee!

Letdown: Darling Husband works second shift and my bonus son will be at his Mom’s tonight, so I will be home all by myself, more than likely eating ice cream.
Pick Me Up: Darling Husband and I did celebrate on Sunday and he cooked me an amazing dinner, plus the little guy bought me a giant chocolate heart and came running to give me a hug and Valentine’s Day “love” when he heard me wake up this morning.

Let down: We were planning on making a fancy dinner together, but Fiance has to work late at work so I will be stuck making dinner myself.
Pick me up: It will be much quicker and he’ll have to do the dishes!

@Rouquine: He just told me he loves chocolate covered strawberries and I shouldn’t be so upset about it – he’ll still eat them! (I already know he will be sick of chocolate covered strawberries by tonight).
I’ll stick with the theme of the thread, since I’m full of complaints today apparently:
Let down: I’m totally PMSing this morning. This has to be the worst day of the year to PMS, because I feel like eating 17 boxes of chocolate, screaming at everyone, and crying in the corner all at the same time.
Pick me up: I won’t have to search far to satisfy my chocolate cravings.

A little let down because Fiance and I are in an LDR so we don’t get to do anything super fun. But he called me to wake me up this morning, which was really sweet.

Let-down: Fiance works all day, and I have a 3 -hour class… that’s an hour drive away. So we won’t see each other at all today.
Pick-me-up: We’re having a date-night this weekend.

Letdown: Darling Husband has class late tonight and then a basketball game, so he won’t be around until after midnight. I left him a surprise card and treats with his lunch today, and he hasn’t even texted to thank me. He also didn’t get me a card or anything.
Pickup: My mother mailed me some chocolates. Mom’s always know!

Let down: Two tests today!
Pick me up: Before my Fiance and I started dating (freshman year!) he invited me over on Valentine’s day to have some pizza and watch a movie with his roommate. Roommate thought I was bringing one of my girlfriends, but she was busy so I came alone. When I got there, it turns out it was a heart shaped pizza, awww :). Then it was funny because I wanted to be all ladylike and not eat the last piece of pizza even though I was still hungry, so his roommate was like “WELP, if no one wants it!” We started dating the week after that, and now we’re engaged! So tonight it’s heartshaped pizza in memory, and I WILL eat the last slice. Haha.
