Valentine’s Day: Forever and Always
So yesterday was Valentine’s day and I’ll have to say the day didn’t start out so great. We ended up waking up way earlier than we normally do and my husband got basically screwed out of his last check at his ex job, so we didn’t have any money to pay our bills or get a bottle of wine for our Valentine’s celebration. Not to mention, we were looking into pawning our gold wedding rings on Valentine’s day of all days. Luckily the money they were trying to give us for them wasn’t even worth it. My husband was angry abut the whole situation and I was devastated and emotional. We tried for most of the day to figure out ways to get money for our bills but it seemed that you can get help with your rent, your utilities, gas vouchers, and food. You can even get discounted phone service and discounted internet service, but nobody will help you with a car payment so it won’t be late. So by the time we had to go start cooking dinner, we still had no money for our car payment. This was such a terrible thing for us since we just lost our home, and my husband his job. We don’t want to loose our car too. But what could we do accept go back to where we are staying and cook dinner. So we went “home” and cooked these delicious white lasagna roll ups. Then we went to my in law’s for a little Valentine’s party, and then back “home”. Where I got to watch the new Three Musketeers movie and enjoy white chocolate covered strawberries with my love. And after looking back over the day, I realize that there were some good things that happened throughout the day too. We did win lunch from the radio. I also got given some new nail polish from my mom, who also gave us an HP touch pad, and $50 to PF Changs. Plus, our baby boy got new clothes and a new toy and he is always so happy. And my love got me a little sock monkey with a heart on it’s sweater, and this pink heart necklace with pink heart earrings. He bought it for me a long time ago but it was so sweet. I love it! The bottom line is that no matter what we have, we at least have each other. Things are rough right now. But they will get better. At least I have my husband and our son. They are my life and my love. I couldn’t be happier with anybody else. That’s why Valentine’s day was good, because my husband didn’t have work, and we got to actually spend the day together. Because at least we have each other. Happy Valentine’s day everyone! And try to remember the little things. If money is tight and you didn’t get flowers chocolate or a nice dinner yesterday, try to think about the person or people you spent it with, even if you are single and you spent it with friends and/or family, be thankful you at least have people who love and care about. Hope you all had a great day.
