Love hurts, and I’m not just saying that because of my affinity for '80s rock bands. When did the Day of Love turn into a Day of Doom?
Valentine's Day has. Especially if you are a parent. Forget the flowers and chocolates for you. Heaven forbid you get a romantic dinner. Oh no! You’ve got kids, and they’ve got Valentine's Day parties. Each child comes home from school with a list of classmates and friends a mile long. That’s four miles for me! I could go to my local froyo establishment and home with that kind of mileage.
Don’t let Cupid’s cherub cheeks fool you. He is sneaky. Just as you’re recovering from the holidays, bam! He hits you with one of his arrows right in the butt. There’s blood, sweat and, most definitely, tears. We get overly ambitious in the eleventh hour trying to pull off the impossible. Every year we swear we’ll make it simple, start early and finally get those dinner reservations at the swanky new eatery. But no more. Here are some tips to make your Valentine's Day special and stitches free.
Valentine’s Day should be about showing love. Ultimately cards get thrown away, candy is eaten, and we have nothing to show for it! The purpose gets lost in the glitter and glue. What really matters is your time. So, put away those glue guns. Forget the fancy restaurants. You’ve got your own little cupids running around ready to shower you with unconditional love, homemade valentines and chocolatey kisses.
Happy Valentine’s Day!!
