True Love

weather: drizzling
outside: 7°C
mood: calm
How have I managed to stay together with userinfoA Guy who has forgotten/missed Valentine's Day for the 11th year in a row?

He didn't get pissy about driving with me to the ER, in the ice and snow, close to midnight, to see my Mom and be available for my Dad, who rode in the ambulance with her, which meant he had no ride home. And he went out there with me again when we found out that the paperwork couldn't all get through for the hospital to provide Mom dinner for the first night of her stay, so we had to make something and take it to her.

He was understanding and supportive enough to be okay with me removing my engagement/wedding rings for job interviews back in mid-2001.

He's always happy as a clam to see me after being apart for even a few hours. This was something my Mom noticed and told me about a month ago.

Some time ago, we were in a quasi-lineup to get food and I was in front of him. I took something and moved on. From behind me, he said, "Did you want this piece?"

Me: *giggle* If I wanted it, don't you think I would have taken it? =D

Him: Sometimes you don't take what you want because you think I want it. You're all silly like that.

It's things like this, all year around, that more than make up for it.

And the audience says "AWWWWWWWWW!"

It's a liability to be married and looking for work in Canada?! WTF, eh?

Or is it more a 'make the male-geek interviewer think he has a shot at you if he offers you the job" type of subterfuge? In which case, I heartily approve. :)

Re:
I may not have been considered if the potential employer thinks I might have to bugger off on Maternity Leave soon. It would be near impossible to fight it if it did happen. =)

There's a relatively high probability that a young wife is going to be a young mother soon. If you're legally required to provide mat. leave and a position for her to come back to afterwards, you might think twice about hiring her in the first place. There will be two shuffles in the project teams, one when she leaves and one when she comes back, both of which would be a hassle. And if you're a technology company trying to keep afloat in the economic downturn, the lost time/productivity weighs more heavily in the decision making.

I wasn't going to chance it.

Either way, I wouldn't want to work for them.

There's some truth in that. But OTOH, money talks.

Well, really, I can think of a million things that are better to celebrate than VD.

PJammer said it!
"AWWWWWWWW!"

You're so lucky! Or are you one of those people who believe that you make your own luck...?

Haha, thank you =)

I usually believe in making your own luck, but some things are completely up to chance. =)

Hee. Who cares about one day a year when the other 364 (365 every four years) days more than make up for it?

You're a lucky girl to have a husband so thoughtful throughout the year. Valentine's day is a really overrated holiday. We celebrated with cards and dinner out together. I would have been happy with cards and ordering in pizza and watching tv. :) I'm easy to please.
