Now here's the problem with this. I walked past the Valentine crap stand bravely every time I saw it, cuz if I didn't I might actually break down and get that
So I was brave. I didn't even look. (I may have glanced, but that's not the same as actually looking.) The days went by and all was well... until yesterday.
Because yesterday I walked into Target with Blue Eyed Boy to buy a birthday present for one of his friends. Hordes of people piled up in front of the Valentine's cards. And that is when it occurred to me, that today, on this February 14, 2010 is my 10 year engagement anniversary. Yes, 10 years ago on this very day, Ogre took me out to a fancy little restaurant. After dinner he pulled out a piece of paper with a poem he had written. I was so happy and teary eyed I forgot to say yes.
Well, much as I would have liked to try and fight my way through the hordes, I had no time. We were running late for a birthday party (why do I always have to buy presents at the very last minute??).
I drove Blue Eyed Boy to the party, had to leave about an hour later to meet with our Realtor to look at a house, that had looked pretty decent from the pictures but turned out to be a piece of crap. Talked to the Realtor for a while... then picked up Blue Eyed Boy from Shady Lady's house, because she had taken him home after the party (thanks!!), sat on her couch for a while (attacked by her dog) to tell her about my awful house experience, then drove home to make dinner.
Then we watches Spaceballs, because that is one heck of a funny movie, and before I knew it it was 10pm.
And so it happens, that it is Sunday morning... Valentine's Day, and I have absolutely no sappy card for Ogre... no chocolates, no flowers, no idea even what to do for a special breakfast. Ashes on my unworthy pate.
Can we postpone Valentine's Day? How's next weekend? I mean 10 years and a week is still acceptable, right?
