Valentine’s Day?

Quote of the Day:
There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved.
– George Sand

It’s Valentine’s Day. I had a boyfriend once that broke up with me on V-Day, so you’ll forgive me if I’m not all hearts-and-flowers today. :talktohand:

It’s really overrated anyway, isn’t it? That’s what we women want you men to think anyway. Secretly, we desire flowers and chocolate and cheesey stuffed bears that say “I love you beary much”. Men, don’t disappoint your girl today. Ok?

Perhaps the quote of the day is right – the only happiness in life is to love and be loved. By someone special. Be it your significant other or your child(ren) or even your pet. But then again…isn’t happiness a state of mind? Isn’t happiness obtained by loving your own life and who you are? Not what someone says to you or how they make you feel. Granted, being loved is one of the best things about living. Knowing that somewhere someone out there loves you unconditionally.

Anyway… Last night I ran by the grocery store and picked up a few things. Namely, a little something for my son on this Day Of Love. :dead: I’ll be dropping by the house tonight to see him and give him a big hug and a kiss. I’m looking forward to that. I also picked up some treats for Sampson and headed back to the apartment armed with Pounce and Iams tuna in gravy. I tempted him with the food and he actually let me pet him. No purring as yet but he did pet himself and eat his treat from my hand. Then he hissed at me and went about his merry way.

I found him on the dining room table at about midnight. He hissed at me.

I heard him scratching in the cat box sometime during the middle of the night.

This morning, I got up, fed him and he poked his head out from under the bed. He looked at me as if to say “You fed me?” and then came on over for a couple of nibbles. I tempted him with more Pounce. He petted himself, meowed and then wandered around the apartment. As I put on my make-up, he came in the bathroom and rubbed on my legs. Then hissed and went back under the bed. :hehe:

At least he’s warming up to me. Somewhat.

LOTS of work to do today and I have to leave early to go meet the satellite dude. They changed my install date to today which is kinda good because now I won’t miss LOST on Wednesday. I’m so glad to have some TV channels back!

I wish you all could be inside my head. The conversation is sparkling.
