When do you celebrate??

For the most part my cold has departed, though I'm still a bit stuffy. Nothing serious though. The shoulder is a serious issue though so I'm going to the physical therapist Friday morning. Ugh.

So when do you celebrate V-Day? On the day? The day before? Day after? Not at all? When I'm involved with a gal, we would rarely go out on the actual day. The day before or two days before is much better. Because those couples are going out on the day, it's that much LESS crowded at the restaurants on the days leading up to V-Day.

Same philosophy for sending flowers. I would always send them several days before V-Day. Why? It costs the same, so no, you don't save any money. BUT there are significantly fewer screw ups AND if there is one, you still have time to get the flower place to bail you out. PLUS, on V-Day, all of the gals are getting stuff. Two days before, she's the ONLY ONE getting something. Who will stand out?? I'm not saying, I'm just saying.

Hmm. That is a good plan. But then is the lady in question left expecting something on the day of as well?

Oh, you DEFINITELY have to communicate what's going least after the initial surprise. Yeah, that's no good if you STILL get stuck going out with the masses after all the upfront planning!!

My general philosophy is not to celebrate without a partner. It seems to work better that way.

After many decades of marriage, it often is more like -

"Oh shit it's Valentines Day!" Run, get card, flowers, (always have good wine in house), make something nice for dinner, light candles.

Whew dodged another bullet.
