I bought DH a card, devilish monky stuffed animal, a chocolate rose and a digital character pack for a game coming out in April. I liked the idea of giving him something to look forward to besides medical treatments.
For my kids I put together baggys with an owl sucker, a lip sucker, a pack of gum, play dough in thier favorite colors and a travel monkeys in a barrel game.
So sorry to hear about your DH. I am sending good thoughts your way

Totally agree!!! I think some posters are having a slowwwwww day and need to find fault with something.

We sign all cards, but it would hardly be worth my time to point out to some stranger on a message board that I found it odd that their card wasnt signed....it wouldnt even be a blip on my radar screen, much less taking the time to post about the non signed card.

OP, you received some nice gifts, glad you had a happy day!

Get over it. It's not like the OP's DH gave you the unsigned card. It's really none of your business. Cripes.

OP, your DH is sweet. I'm glad you had a nice Valentine's Day!

But. The OP comes on here to share the great things her DH got her for Valentine's Day, and people are being snarky (and a couple were rude IMO) about him not signing the card. Good grief.
I do think its kind of odd to come here with pics and prtty much brag on what you got for V day. I'm sure there are plenty that got nothing. My DH treated me nicely with gifts and a surprise trip but I wouldn't come here starting a thread complete with pics. And yes, weird the card wasn't signed.

Maybe, just maybe, that's their thing. Who are you to make them feel bad for doing something that doesn't set right with you? I'm sorry I'm being a tad harsh, but I think the OP has had enough, and that goes for everyone else who was being critical.

I agree. The unsigned card? Eh, I've seen stranger things. But I think the fact that the card was photographed and posted on a public forum was...well...odd.

IMO a card between husband and wife (or any two people, for that matter) is a personal expression of feelings. Not fodder for a message board.

I think most people start an occasional thread that someone else might think it odd. Just skip it. Why be snarky/rude to the OP about it. Just skip the thread and move on.

The OP has posted stuff that was unbelievable in the past. This fits the same pattern.

Not trying to be rude, nor do I know the history here ....but if you and others are followers of OP's threads, know the pattern, why waste time and energy reading or replying 11 times . Honestly, imo, life is too short to keep track of strangers on any internet board.
