My first Valentine`s Day since my divorce, so needless to say not the day I am most looking forward to. It seems that lately I have been inundated with links and article on what the divorced women should do on Valentine’s Day. I guess once Facebook knows your divorced (change in status from married àseparated àdivorced àsingle), than the whole internet universe knows.
According to the majority of these enlightened souls, here is a short list of what I should be doing today:
- · Get a massage, manicure, pedicure... really, sit in that salon while so 20-something perky thing ask you “so what are you doing for Valentine’s Day” and then proceeds to talk about the love of her life and their plans.... great...
- · Go hear some live music... sitting alone in a bar on V-day. Hmmm... don’t think so.
- · Buy yourself some flowers... dead foliage, I think not.
So, I don’t think any of these will be on my agenda. I have decided to look at V-day as any other holiday that doesn’t apply to me. I am not a mother, so I don’t expect breakfast in bed on Mothers Day. I am not American, so no fireworks on the forth of July... you get the point.
