Manic Monday 2-9-09 Valentine's Style

What is your favorite candy?

It was Russell Stover's Pecan Delights (Turtles), but since GBS surgery, I don't eat candy, sugar makes me sick (dumping syndrome).

Kalea_Kane stated in her blog that she loves Bazooka bubble gum, me too! Nothing compares. Double Bubble doesn't even come close. GBS patients are not supposed to chew gum either. SIGH!!!

Name one thing that you'd want to receive as a gift for Valentine's day.

I would be happy with just a a mushy romantic card, but if I received a small cute stuffed animal, a home-cooked meal prepared by my hubby with love and one red carnation, I think would just complete the day all round.

Can we truly love someone who loves another?

We can truly love someone who loves another. Unrequited love has gone on for centuries. It is one of the most hardest things a person can do. To see the object of my affection giving his attention to another would be truly devastating, but it happens to the best of us. Why, I don't know. I am happy and secure in my love for my husband and that he reciprocates my love ten fold. That is the most joyous feeling in the world.

I hope all of you experience that kind of love in your lifetime.

The following is a copy of a blog I posted a couple of Valentine's ago. I think this suffices for what my Valentine's Day will be like, I hope:

I have found that what I used to consider a "romantic" Valentine's Day is just not as romantic as I once thought. Being married to a "country boy" has changed my way of thinking.

A "city guy" will buy you a Valentine's card from the Hallmark store, but a "country boy" will carve your initials in a heart on the old oak tree in the back yard.

A "city guy" will buy you a dozen expensive cut red roses, but a "country boy" will plant you a row of daffodils outside your window so you can gaze at their beautiful yellow glow every year in the early spring.

A "city guy" will buy you a box of expensive chocolates, but a "country boy" will make you a batch of brownies with fudge icing because he knows how much you love them.

A "city guy" will take you to an expensive restaurant and wine and dine you, but a "country boy" will take you for a ride in his 4WD truck down by the lake to have a picnic under the stars.

A "city guy" will take you to the latest movie out in the theater, but a "country boy" will sit with you for hours gazing at a full moon whispering how much he loves you.

I don't particularly mean to diminish in any way what a "city guy" can come up with for a "romantic" Valentine's Day scenario, but now that I am a "country boy's" wife, I guess my tastes have changed. I love my country boy so much, he is the love of my life and now that I have found him, I can't bear the thought of living a day without him. He makes my life worth living.

Now that I have told you what a "romantic" Valentine's Day entails for me and my "country boy," please reply to my blog and let me know what you consider to be a "romantic" Valentine's Day for you.

Well I guess the most romantic for me is actually FINALLY getting to spend V-Day with the love of MY life! He is the best! Also, my best present is my little love (bug-a-boo baby boy) who needs to get here!! And...I suppose an iPhone is a nice touch lol!!!
