You’d think I lived under a rock. In retrospect, okay, sure, how could I not have realized this? The stores are packed with Valentine’s themed stuff, the casinos are promoting their restaurants like crazy, on the news this morning, they were talking about some exotic rose that costs $25 a stem...
It's all making sense now: this is what it feels like when your brain goes ‘bye-bye’. Hmmm. Not as painful as I thought it would be. When I was single, I used to have to pretend to forget Valentine’s Day. But now, this is the real deal!
HBL and I decided we’re not going to do anything special this year for Valentine’s (which is a good thing, because I haven’t even gotten him a card due to my brain lapse!) because he has to work all weekend. However, it is Monkey’s very first Valentine’s Day, so we agreed we should do something fun for him. Maybe put his baby food in a heart shaped bowl or I may bake him heart shaped cookies that HBL and I will eat on his behalf. Ooooh, I could surprise HBL by dressing Monkey up in full Valentine regalia: Cupid! With wings! No? Well, the cookie idea is pretty genius.
