Hubby and I have reached that point...
You know, the point of, 'let's not bother with that holiday this year, there are too many holidays on the calendar anyway.'
Ay yi yi!
He looked at me and said, 'Let's just skip it this year, maybe just go to dinner or something.'
Sounds good to me! In fact, I'd rather just skip dinner too because the wait at the restaurants will be awful on such a day.
And then it hit me, we're that couple.
Is the romance gone? No.
Is the excitement of gift giving gone? Nuh uh.
Are we getting too old to care about such things. Probably, yes. :)
The things that seemed fun, important, and a priority years ago, really don't mean a thing anymore (other things that seem fun, important, and/or a priority have taken their place).
I'll pick up little boxes of chocolate hearts for the kids, and the requisite Valentine's Day cards for the elementary-aged little to pass out in his classroom. And that will be that, and I'm glad about it too. :)
How about you? Do you look forward to Valentine's Day? Or are you a take it or leave it (the holiday) kind of gal or guy?
