Every where I go I can see hearts red and pink, chocolates and every thing that reminds me that soon it is time to celebrate Cupid's adventures on Earth.
Then I think, where is my Valentine? and I realize that I married him and we have the most beautiful baby boy. The roses, the chocolates, the pink and red things disappeared from the map. It is sad to say.
I have realized that is not being married, having a baby, or routine that kills the romance. The romance killer for me is ... WORK. When you are in a committed relationship, married or not, and you want to "build your dreams" one usually work more, that means more working hours, multiple jobs or also working during the holidays and weekends. At times the relationship may become almost zero, and every body is too busy and tired at the end of the day. Cupid is gone, there is no more time for romance, as my my husband says "living in the tired zone".
Some people think that this is only a commercial day, they may be right, but it is the perfect day to celebrate your love and relationship. You have all the excuses to celebrate and improve it, so stop thinking that you are too busy, you don't have time, and the romance is gone. Bring back the romance , it will not come to your life in a mail order. You have to create it and take advantage of all those red, cute, and romantic things that you see in the stores, buy some of the stuff and create your own day, for both of you to celebrate.
This February, I am inviting to all you busy bodies to get some time off for yourself. I will do it myself.
I plan to celebrate Cupid's adventures next month regardless of my busy schedule. I invite you to do the same, not only in February but the rest of the year.
Romance... yes, I need some of that, so I will prepare that day in advance. This is my plan of action:
- I will arrange in advance the baby sitting of my son for that day.
- I will clean the house, but I will not kill myself doing that.
- I will kiss him a lot...
- I will make the dessert time very special... I may chose for something sexy like fruits and ice cream with melted chocolate... Yummy!! and sexy.
This is the plan... I have to think now about my menu.
