Hey don't let it get you down...I know easier said than done...
I actually proposed to Hannah's Mom on valentines day...
Then 5 days later on the 19th she came over and did one of those home pregnancty tests and BINGO...pregnant
That ended the relationship as that's all she wanted....get pregnant and have a cute little white baby...
I refuse to be angry anymore...just aint worth it...
Besides....I got my Sweet valentine and she's all snuggled up in my bed right now...

Cheer Up...It's just another day.....

I've spent nearly every V-Day alone with my kids so .....I don't know why I still have such a bothersome time with it.

It wasn't New Years yet and the stores had V-DAY plush dolls up and down the aisles. You get a month and a half of torturous reminders everywhere you go.

I just simply want to find a few techniques others use to get past it or through it.

I know what you mean...
In all honesty it does bother me but because of my wife and daughter that I lost and not Hannah's mom...
In this case I just block it out....well try anyway...
And Hannah has helped cure a lot of pain...
I just look at her and figure everything is new..

Hey Sky I know that it sucks to be alone but really you're not. I always go out and buy my kids some Valentine treats and it helps because at least I have them to celebrate with. Because they are my Valentines this year.
Last year I got them some singing bears (I don't suggest you buy them, ugh they still play them) but I'm not sure how depressed you get but I'm would hope that going out and buying Valentines stuff for your kids would make you a little happier. It always does for me!!

I know exactly how your feeling..last year was the firts time since I was a kid that I was without someone special to be my Valentine (besides the kids). Honestly it was hard. I can live without the candy, the flowers ect..But the thing I missed the most (besides obviously my husband) was a card that let me know I was really special to someone. I guess even if we know we are It just helps to know someone else thinks so and to not have it vaildated on a day like Valentines day makes it hard.
I have been thinking for a while about this year and I am going to do my best to not let it get me down too much. I am going to make it a day for me to show the kids how much I love them. I am also hoping that I can take the kids out somewhere nice to eat. Just me and the kids get dressed up and have a special Valentines dinner. and I am hoping that when I see all the couples together I can look at my children and say to myself. I am lucky to have three little people sitting across from me who love me very much and I don't even have to worry what they are thinking or ever question their love.

I'm always alone too B. But this year I am working on a little project for my co-workers and then I'm sending out VD cards to some friends and trying to remind myself that VD is not just about a significant other but also about family and friends that you have and love.

My serious threads always welcome humor HB. Honest if we can keep laughing and be serious at the same time about Cupid's Day of Caring.....I'll be happy as a lark.

You should never call it VD when coffee is so popular a topic these days.

I'm asking you not to expect me to change MY ways for you! LOL Don't yell at me for my dirty mind if you are gonna leave a door so wide open to be walked through.

If it helps you also made the girl here in my training laugh her AO too.

Ah Yes....CGM....or also called chronic gutter mind...
I had it removed back in the 70's but it grew back...sorry...

And one can't help but think there might be a connection between the lapse of time from 8-19-04 and your wanting to spread the joy of VD....

Maybe I should change my handle to GutterBoy

That's what we're here for

I've had no sleep. I couldn't pass out until nearly 3 a.m. I woke up wide awake at 5 a.m. and was out of the house before 8.

I'm about to take my heavy duty meds for my headache and then try to fill out paperwork. LOL That or do school work....we'll see if they clear my head up for either one or if Braeden will be doing my makeup whilst I'm passed out.

VD day... I'll probably get a card for my daughter (but not my mom)

So ladies... tell me what you think about anonymous valentines gifts
like say I see a perdy girl working at the coffea shop, don't know if she has a boyfriend, have some kind of flower delivered that says she's pretty (I'll spell it right) and she should know signed some dude
would you be creeped out by that or flattered
or say I have a friend, known her for ages, I know she's feeling alone and been through alot lately and want to send her something to make her feel good... but don't want her to get any ideas

I think thats very sweet any girl who'd be offeneded just doesnt deserve the flowers.
And for your frined just be sure the card implies "friendship"


Oh and you said VD day (hee hee)

how about v-day to make it short so no one has to wonder if you need a doctor. (sorry I couldnt help myself)

I think if I received anonymous flowers and was a coffee shop girl and not your friend....well I'd either be paranoid b/c I'd watched too many CSI episodes or I'd be all worked up that I have a secret admirer and wonder about what will happen next.

Now if the card indicated that you just wanted to brighten up someone's valentine's day, signed anonymous. Maybe it wouldn't go that way.

As for the friend thing....depending on your friend you have to be careful. Just flat out say you knew she was feeling down and wanted to put a smile on her face on the holiday.

DON'T buy her pearl earrings like my creepy boss did when I was pregnant. I had to return them directly back because it sent the wrong message all together. Make sure its a friend to friend TYPE gift.

How is it that you telling Becca that YOU are awesome Joey is suppose to make her feel better?

Becca, I do hope you feel better. I'm sorry you still aren't well. I am sure Mr Man will call you on V-day. I would guess by the way he's been acting lately that you may get a bonus of something you can hold on to as well.

Jeepers creepers....That is a quote from her ......She knows what for......and she isn't dumpy she is silly....she wants to ride a panda bear and she has realized that she can't so she is sad. I keep telling her pandas like bamboo, but she keeps swearing that if she gives them steak they will like her better. The girl is nuts. She just wants to ride a stupid panda.....

that is all....

Good Day....
