I HATE VDAY
I have been with DH for 3 years. In those 3 years I have gotten 2 gifts from him: a Marilyn Monroe crystal and my engagement ring. Now I am not ungrateful for these things and the things he has done for me, but every holiday and birthday I get him a gift. This Valentine's Day I bought him a ring with our initials on the inside and 'Love Cherish Honor Forever" on the outside. I spent over 100 bucks for it. Wednesday night I get home and he says he has something to show me and brings out a small jewelry box. Naturally I got excited. Then he opens it up and there is a pair of diamond earrings and a gold heart necklace, he asks me "Do you think Atilla will like it?" I asked him how much he spent on it.....
300.00 FREAKING DOLLARS. SHE'S FREAKING 5!!!!!!!! SHE'LL PROBABLY LOSE IT WITHIN 24 HOURS!
Ok maybe I am showing some jealousy here but Atilla's birthday is Sunday and the next weekend is Vday. She's getting 500.00 worth of gifts in 1 week. I asked him what he wanted to do for Vday (trying to make sure he didn't have plans so we could go out to a romantic dinner and spend time together), oh well he's taking ATILLA to Olive Garden. I jokingly (kinda) asked him if I was invited and he says "Well I really wanted to treat Atilla."
So I am not invited. I am not getting anything for Valentine's Day, not even a card because he already spent half his paycheck and has the other half planned to spend on Atilla for Vday. Oh and the bonus: I get to spend Vday alone at home with a TV dinner watching stupid lovey-dovey movies on Movieplex. I am contemplating throwing the damn ring out or pawning it since the jeweler won't take it back. I always go out of my way to make him feel loved and special and I get squat. Even the day that's somewhat dedicated to love, couples and cupid I can't spend with my husband because of her.
Oh and he put an order in at the flowershop to have 1/2 dozen roses delivered to BM at work from Atilla for Vday.
Another Vday full of hate, spite and Ben & Jerrys. What Ben & Jerrys flavor goes best with hate and spite? I'm thinking Phish Food...
