Whew, glad to say that day pass. Hit me harder than I had anticipated, the phone was never quieter and the memories were never louder. Then around 4 I decided that I needed to show some caring for MYSELF, so I picked up the phone and treated myself to a nice take out meal for supper. Ordered my favourite - ribs, mashed potatoes, coleslaw and overindulged on desserts with one piece of caramel pecan cheesecake and a slice of triple chocolate cake and a couple of Perrier waters. Burp. lol. Only had room for the cheesecake so finished the chocolate cake today. Shared the cheesecake with my Himalayan last night, who was grateful (well as grateful as a Himmy can be, lol) and it turned out to be an okay night after all. But, glad it is over regardless. Woke up this morning, sun was shining and I said under my breath 'Ahhhhh, Feb. 15th'. lol. Laterz, everyone. Blueroses.

blue,

I treated myself to "The International", a great spy thriller about a large bank involved in selling weapons to terrorists, featuring my favorite crush, Naomi Watts, and a bottle of Russian lager to be consumed with a sardine, romaine & carrot salad, for when I got home. I thought about those Valentine's Days of my distant past, when I would take a favorite squeeze to dinner and what ever followed, then thinking about having to get out of my comfortable clothes and into a suit, cleaning the car, hoping my stomach and/or bowels didn't act up, etc. You know, blue, a movie and a beer ain't all that bad!

Happy belated Valentine's Day!

Hmm, This one is a tough one for me too. Husband passed as I have said three years ago from cancer. And me, I have been battling off and on 7 years. I had my parents, two sons, brother and nephew here for pizza. Should of got that glass of red wine. My brother bought me some candy. It was a nice evening. But I kind of glad its over. Sometimes things are a tear jerker. But we get thru them. I hope all is well with everyone and I pray all of us dance someday soon celebrating the cure.
Prayers and Hugs To all
Sandy

I have no doubt there will be a cure found in the not too distant future. The docs consider mine a cure already, after 18 years with no evidence of disease, so we are well on our way. Glad your V day went well and you had family around. Take care. Blueroses.

Hey Rick, Thanks for the reply to my whining about Feb. 14th, lol. I can't drink because of my heart arythmia which is probably a good thing for me, less temptation to bail out on emotional issues when they come up. But as you did I treated myself as I said and that did help. Funny you should mention the movie cause I nearly did that myself - we have a video store in my apartment building downstairs but for some reason just wasn't up to it so did the tv thang. It was okay. Yup, those memories of V Day gone by came back but what bummed me out was the way my marriage ended and now realizing all the lies, that's what really got me down but I survived yesterday and glad you did too. Take care and blessings, Blueroses.

Maybe I'm used to having no "special someone" in my life. I have to admit that when I look back at the past most of the time I was very dissapointed in my relationships. They were never like what you see in the movies or in books. I spent 8 hours checking out people buying roses, cards, balloons, candy (I work in a store.) I received 2 Valentine's cards: one from my mother, the other from my sister. I can always count on them not to forget me. For dinner I made myself bowtie pasta with broccoli (olive oil, butter, garlic, spices) but kind of wished I had some cream or half and half to made alfredo sauce. Then I watched a movie on T.V. about an air traffic controller called "Pushing Tin." So all in all it wasn't a bad day. I even had a slice of Valentine's cake that I bought from the store for myself and my daughter. I had another slice this morning for breakfast with my coffee. I should mention that I'm not as indulgent as to eat all the frosting. That would be abit too much.

when Angelina Jolie was Billy Bob Thornton's "main squeeze", tattoo, blood-vial, and all. Does that one ever bring me back, Dream! Billy Bob gave all us middle-aged balding men hope, until he messed up, making Angie free to steal Brad away from Jennifer.

And, life goes on.

Happy Presidents' Day!

Sometimes miss the days I could indulge in a drink. Now a days I'm on too many medications that warn you not to drink. Anyways, I've never really had any good male companionship on Valentine's day but I have a great friend who is always there. We spent 3 hours in a quant little restaurant down by the lake just catching up and talking about old flames and wondering what we ever saw in them. After that I went home, she was going to a Rascal Flats concert, lucky her. Hoping that maybe that day will come when I will have someone to share holidays with. Maybe soon I met a guy online and have been talking for 6 months now, soon will meet in person. But trying not to get my hopes up. But still hoping seeing as how he didn't run away when I told him about my cancer. Well hope everyone's in good health and cheer. HUGS.

That sounds like a lovely way to spend V Day, with a friend at a nice little restaurant in such a picturesque setting. I would have loved that kind of thing on Valentines Day.

I have just been divorced about 7 years now and up until 3 years ago when my last child went off to make their own adult lives in the world, that's when the V day celebrations stopped and it was tough on me but it's past and I am still alive so made it through yet another one.

You mentioned that you had met someone on the internet, sounds nice but if I can - just a word of caution there. I have no idea what your situation is with this person but I went through a similar thing myself a few years ago and met someone from the internet. He came out to meet me from the states and I made sure to meet in a public place and have a friend with me when I met him. He turned out to be basically what he had said he was, that I could see to that point anywho, but as he stayed for the visit it became obvious that he wasn't over his alcoholism as he had said and that was a deal breaker for me. I broke it off when he got home and that was that. When we are lonely and the internet is so handy and we get involved in words on a page, which you know can be very powerful, sometimes we can get lulled into a sort of lala land in relationship situations. I guess all I am saying to you is to be careful and be aware, if something doesnt feel right it probably isn't. Always stay safe and err on the side of caution when dealing with strangers. Having said that, hopefully all will be great and it will be the start of something wonderful in your life. Take care Cindy and keep us posted. Hugs, Blueroses.
