February is always a busy month for me. So I always fall behind in keeping up with reading those blogs I follow–but I do promise to catch up ASAP.
Valentine’s Day is a special day. Now I love my Queen. I dream and fantasize about her. We share our hopes and plans for the future. We laugh and at times even cry together! I try to show this every day–in effect I try to make every day a bit of Valentine’s Day!
So throughout the year, I will sometimes buy flowers and little gifts, send cards, arrange special time’s–basically just do little things to show her how much I love and appreciate her.
So Valentine’s Day isn’t really super important but I don’t like to miss it. This has been a very long week. I have had some tumultuous days at work. I have worked long hours. So yesterday being Valentine’s Day, and not having had the time to purchase anything earlier in the week, I planned on stopping on my way home to get something for her. I had the best intentions. But I forgot.
Now yesterday I was to have interviewed for my job again. Every three years my job comes up for renewal. At this time virtually anyone can apply for it. Knowing this I submitted my application back in December. The individual I gave my application too indicated it was too early but that she would hold it and give it to my boss at the appropriate time. Wednesday I had gone to speak with my boss about an issue when someone I know left a nearby office. When I greeted this person and asked why they were there, they indicated that they had just finished an interview for my job. I walked them out of the building and then returned to ask my boss why I hadn’t heard about an interview. Apparently the individual to whom I had given my application had forgotten about it and hadn’t submitted it for me. Consequently I wasn’t on the list of interviewees. Thankfully we got that corrected and I was to have been interviewed yesterday (Valentine’s Day). Then some s@*t hit the fan and my boss had to attend to some problem so my interview was postponed until next week. This was late in the day and then I ended up dealing with some problems. When I left work I had forgotten all about my plans. I went home and sat down on the couch. My Queen arrived shortly thereafter and we sat together on the couch. Hours later I realized I had forgotten to purchase anything for her. Angry with myself I could only hope that she hadn’t gotten anything for me–that would make my lapse far more obvious. Of course she had remembered.
So today after dropping her off at work I stopped and picked something up for her. Better late than never but I am angry with myself!
To everyone out there I hope you’ve had a good week. Remember to appreciate your loved ones and to let them know you do! To those of you searching for love, don’t despair. You will find someone.
