Did you remember Valentine’s Day, or did you get yourself in trouble with your significant other? Perhaps your ADHD forgetfulness has you in the doghouse?
I totally screwed up this year. In my defense, we’re not even 2 full months into 2012 and it’s already been a doozy of a year. Life has been moving at an insanely intense pace for the last few weeks and I’ve been struggling to keep up.
Most recently, our entire household caught a stomach bug. My 1-year old daughter, my partner, and I spent the past weekend feeling really sick. No one was even well enough to drive to the store to get some Gatorade to prevent us all from dehydrating. Instead, a family member went to the store for us and dropped off some Gatorade at the door, refusing to come in and be exposed to the evil virus that had us all debilitated.
Yesterday was the first day we started to feel human again. And yet…
…my partner still managed to have a Valentine’s Day card and candy waiting for me. How does she do it?
Clearly, she plans ahead. I’m sure she purchased the card weeks ago, and the candy, too. So the fact that something came up this past weekend didn’t matter at all. Unlike me, who figured I’d just pick something up at the last minute, not counting on being sick in bed at the last minute.
But it’s the thought that counts, right?
Too bad my thoughts go something like this:
I have to pick up something for Valentine’s Day next month.
I have to pick up something for Valentine’s Day next week.
I have to pick something up for Valentine’s Day before it’s too late.
Oh, shit, it’s Valentine’s Day!
