This isnít a rant or even a complaint just a statement of fact. Each year I tell DH NOT to buy me candy for Valentineís Day. I donít need the chocolate and after nearly 50 years together (45 married), I donít need an official day for him to buy anything to verify that he loves me.
Note: I know that Iím a tiny minority in this view and I do not judge or criticize anyone who feels differently. In fact, I like seeing all the different ways people show their affection for that special person in their life and itís also a boost to the economy. I just donít need it myself.
DH & I have always agreed on one thing. Weíre very thrifty. So I expect I will receive candy anyway, but it will be at the 50% off sale today or tomorrow. In a week or so I may get another token of chocolate love at 75% off unless others with similar mindsets have already cleared the shelves. Itís too bad the percent reduction is only in money not calories. Now that would be some gift!
