When I was in high school, I didn't have a boyfriend. But I went to an all girls' school and on Valentine's day there was always a host of delivery guys with roses and candy, usually for the popular girls. That always sent me into a deep blue funk.
Years later, I had just gone back to work after the birth of my second daughter and needed to lose about 10 more lbs. My husband gave me a hamper of diet drinks for Valentine's day. It was my worst Valentine's day! I just wanted to hurl the drinks, basket and all at him. Instead, I was gracious and cried my eyes out most of the day.
