Especially because February comes with my least favorite day of the entire year.
It's really the grossest.
In my whole entire life I've never had a positive Valentine's Day experience. When PC and I were together we were too poor to do anything so it was always kind of a let down. Then after that I was just by myself. Forever alone. For three years in a row now. I was hoping this year would be different, but it actually turned out just like I feared it would.
How sad is that?
So I'm just hoping that Thursday goes by unnoticed and I don't have to see too many googly eyed couples all lovingly holding on to one another while I cuddle with my dog and drown my sorrows in action movies and a glass of wine.
Maybe some year I will like Singles Awareness Day, but this year is not that year.
To distract myself from all of this negative nonsense I think about how my puppy is getting big! I remember when I used to be able to fit her just on the inside of my jacket - my cute little runt of the litter! And now she's 26 pounds of black fur and adorableness.
Plus I was able to visit TheKeeper in Seattle this past weekend. We went skiing and ate at a fancy restaurant way out of our price range. (Thanks Mom and Dad!)
Also, sunsets. Those are the best.
May your February be infinitely cooler than mine and have a happy Valentine's Day - I just don't want to hear about it.
