Valentine's Day

Today is Valentine's Day. This is what I posted on my Facebook and G+ before I got out of bed (I use my phone a lot):
Valentine's Day. Another holiday I'm like: "Eh, whatever" about. People who are close to me know I don't put much stock in dates (birthdays, holidays, etc.). Maybe because of childhood stuff (isn't everything traced to that? :p), but I think we don't need people to tell us what to make of a specific day. We should make each day what we want it to be. 
Then what happens? I head into my office and find a card from my wife on the office chair. A card that makes my heart melt. Homemade cards are the best, aren't they?  While I'm not much of a a holiday/birthdays observer, my wife is. It's forced me to shape up a bit. I want to keep her happy, right? ;-) So I give her birthday gifts, Valentine's gifts and all that.
Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!
