Hate is kind of a harsh word :\

It's not that I hate Valentine's day. I just cannot support a day that makes single people miserable and pressures those who are coupled up to be spontaneously romantic. Even more aggravating, I am annoyed by the ridiculous sky rocket of retail items and the commercialized idea that spoiling your significant other somehow dictates your love or worthiness of that person. Call me a scrooge, but Mark and I are entirely anti V-day. And call me a show off but everyday Mark and I put our best efforts into showing our love for each other. True, some days we score better then others, but the intentions are there ;)

I am not bashing anyone who makes friends with the hallmark holiday. Nor do I shy away at the offer of a delicious not-good-for-me chocolate. But yes, I am urked that everywhere I turn there are flowers and I LOVE flowers but not overpriced ones on February 14th. And I am slightly peeved that none of our favorite places will do a takeout order, which probably means I am eating Mac n Cheese again tonight. And I am irrate that I could not find a parking space at Target because your men are desperately looking for a last minute card!

Ok maybe I do hate Valentine's day just a little...
