actually i hate it when people call it v-day. it just sounds gross to me and i don’t know why…
anyway, valentines day was good. to be honest pauly and i were kinda fighting/not fighting just disagreeing on stuff in life….oh marriage….but it ended up being really great. i mention that just to always be honest about life. not every holiday is perfect even though i think it should be. we aren’t always lovey-dovey, even though i want us to be. i would rather be honest and have open communication in my marriage, even if that means it comes on a day that is supposed to be romantic and all about love. that’s true love i think. being willing to fight on v-day.
so after we were friends again we decided to stay in for valentines this year. i mean why fight the crowds, prices, etc for one day, when we could go out on friday and not have to suffer any of that?? so, we stayed in. ordered some chinese food (even though it was the last day of my detox, i had some stir fried veggies and rice), and watched ‘the perks of being a wallflower.” it was a great night.
school almost did me in for my last detox day though! we had cupcakes, we had sheet cake, we had cookies to decorate, we had chocolate, we had punch! it was in my face all day but i am proud to say i didn’t have one lick of it!! i can’t believe it. if i hadn’t lived it wouldn’t have believed it. it was really hard. honestly, this blog helped. i wanted to be able to honestly blog that i didn’t eat any of it, and that kept me motivated.
on a gushy note: my husband is the best. his deep and true love for me is astounding, really. he works so hard for us. loves me no matter how bitchy i get (a true feat!), and is such a great leader. paul really does motivate me to be a better person. if i give him….what should i call this…”constructive criticism”, he really listens to what i am saying and makes efforts to change/be better/work harder. i can’t say the same for myself that’s for sure. i get so defensive and try to justify my behavior, but not paul. he is always trying to learn and grow and i really really admire that. i love you pab! (side note: pab is short for pablo..paul is spanish).
happy v day everyone
