Jimmy and I have been married just over 3 years and this Valentine's Day will be our 4th one.
Our first Valentine's Day together Jimmy tried to do something really special. We both had class that night (and a test none the less, heartless teacher!)so we couldn't go out or anything.
But Jimmy invited me over to his house before we went to class. I was driving over there, and he called me and asked me to stop at the store and get some toilet paper because they were out.
I did not react well to this. I didn't want to stop at the store and get them toilet paper! Is that my job? Why can't you (or one of the 4 people you live with for that matter) stop at the store and get toilet paper?
Typical of me, I did it but I was not happy about it. I went over there fuming mad that I had to go out of my way to get toilet paper for a house that wasn't even mine because other people are too lazy to get it.
When I got to his house, he had been trying to make me dinner. He had the table all set with a nice table cloth, candles and everything. He sent me to the store because dinner wasn't ready yet, and he wanted it to be a surprise when I walked in. They didn't really need the toilet paper; he just needed to get rid of me for a little while.
How did I respond to all this? Like a complete and total brat. I was still mad about the toilet paper. I pouted all through dinner and completely ruined the night. He had worked so hard to cook a full meal and set everything up. I acted like a spoiled ungrateful jerk. The only thing I can say in my defense is that I was having a really bad day. Maybe I was PMS ing or something.
And after all that he still married me! That is one of those events I really wish I could go back and redo.
As of right now we don't have any grand plans for this year. I've never been big into Valentines Day. I mean I like candy as much as the next person, but if I want candy I can just go buy it. And summer is coming, so do I really need candy? No, I don't. We don't have any dinner reservations, or play tickets or huge surprises. But we will be together and that's good enough for me!
Waiting for James to arrive!
