Valentine’s Day is for the Bluebirds!


I am one of those people who hears the joke about Valentine Day being called Single Awareness Day and think it is true not a joke.  I did not get married or have kids until I was 28 and so had a few of those fun Single Awareness Days myself.  Yesterday I watched my daughter go through one and she is 13, she watched everyone else get a Valentine or a rose while at school and came home down.  “Wow, it is started for her already,” I thought.  As for me I had just done my annual Healthy Wealthy Wow What Women Want Radio show (daily at 2 pm EST on the GRapevine TAlk Radio Network at and so had made my usual comment about my husband and Valentine’s Day.

 Each and every year for the 14 years we have been married when I bring up Valentine’s Day my husband asks me, “When is Valentine’s Day this year?”  Every year I say, “Honey, it is on the 14th the same as it is every year.” and he says “What month?”  So, for the 7 Valentine Days I have been doing the talk radio show for women I share this and every year many many women call in to profer advice on how they get their husbands to remember!

 This year, the seventh year, something funny happened.  My husband remembered.  Usually after hearing my show he runs to the store and buys something expensive — incentivized by the guilty concious and all.  This year, I had roses, chocolate, a card (really and signed even) and a new watch.  Shocker was the tickets to the Opera!  Then of course when we got home (missed the Opera and reservations due to bad weather so had to eat all dressed up in the car at McDonald’s ((have not eaten their since road trip 4 years ago)) and saw the new Jumper Movie which is really good, is that the star wars guy?) I found a box on the door step.  In it was a Fat Bluebird Cookie jar that he had ordered online weeks and weeks ago!

Wow!  And I didn’t get him anything.  When is Valentine’s again?  March?
