And I feel badly, because my husband tried very hard to make this Valentine's Day a great day, but honestly, can I just say this has to be one of the crappiest Valentine's Day ever? And there isn't anything my husband could do to fix that. He, because he is awesome, completely understood where I am coming from, just held my tight and gave me a kiss before heading to bed.
An a related note - tomorrow, we are all being urged to wear red (NIU's color)
On Facebook, students from Northern Illinois and other universities urged one another to wear "Huskie red" Friday to support NIU students and their families.(from here)
"I will wear red with absolute pride tomorrow as I'm sure you all wore your orange and maroon for us," wrote one student at Virginia Tech, where 32 were slaughtered by a suicidal gunman last year. "Know that we are here for you in your time of need as you were for us"
