Warm Up to Valentine’s Day

There’s a few more days until Valentine’s Day and part of me is dreading it, not because I don’t want to tell my hubby just how much I love him, but my love language is NOT gifting and I’m always feeling the pressure to “do it up” on Valentine’s and I almost always fall short!

Valentine’s Day, also called St. Valentine’s Day, holiday (February 14) when lovers express their affection with greetings and gifts. The holiday has origins in the Roman festival of Lupercalia, held in mid-February. The festival, which celebrated the coming of spring, included fertility rites and the pairing off of women with men by lottery.

In the meantime I’m sure hubby will feel the pressure to get me something and really I’m not a big fan of the holiday! I’d love if it’d use the money that he spends on me to pay off part of a credit card or help pay for an extra lesson for the kids. The stuff I want isn’t something I can hold in my hand. I want to sleep in and to be able to finish working on a blog post without being interupted. I guess those fall flat compared to chocolates and flowers.

What’s your favorite way to celebrate Valentine’s day?

I’m Patty Gordon, a 40+ year old school lunch lady married to a crane mechanic. Our days are anything but normal as he works “construction worker hours” and I take care of our two elementary school aged kids, Chihuahua Mr Biggs, Pitbull Cali, and French Bulldog MooMoo. I blogged a few years ago under different names but have landed with the 365MomMe.com name this time around. The term 365MomMe comes from the idea that I’m a mom and I’m me 365 days a year. Kids call me Mommy but I see myself as MomMe.
