Honestly, I have never been a big fan of Valentine's Day. In elementary school, I was shy and awkward. In junior high, I had glasses the size of saucers and frizzy hair. In high school, I was still shy and not all that confident. I was never the girl that got tons of huge valentines from admiring guys.
Of course, now I am awesome. I'm still shy sometimes, but I'm much more confident. I got contacts and a straightening iron. I also have the most amazing husband. He doesn't shower me with huge valentines, but, bless his heart, he does his best. But despite this awesomeness, I still think that Valentine's Day is the most torturous holiday of the year (closely followed by Groundhogs Day, because I'm not a winter girl and feel a lot of anxiety over the whole shadow or no shadow thing...plus, it is just a ridiculous holiday...kinda like Valentine's Day...oops, I digress....).
I have NO idea what to get hubby for Valentine's Day. He needs another movie like he needs a hole in the head. We have 3 kiddos and no babysitter, so a night out is not in the cards. Truth be told, I really think he'd be perfectly ok with getting nothing. (Less pressure for him that way.) But I don't want to let the day go by without giving him at least a little something. Ugh, I think I'd rather be waterboarded than try to figure out the perfect not-too-small, not-too-big, says-just-enough-without-going-overboard gift.
Ideas? Comfort? You in the same boat?
