That time of year again...
Except at least he did remember the day. For the first 8 years of our marriage he could not remember what day my birthday was on. I would drill him all the time at random times of the year. Some Tuesday in July I would look at him and say - hey when is my birthday? He would mumble "November twenty...first." NOPE. "November twenty...ninth?" Nope. "I dunno - I just know it is around Thanksgiving" Great - my hubby only knows my birthday is around Thanksgiving!
So finally he memorized it or looked at my license? That is why the date is written on my card - to proove to me he remembered! Finally! It took over nine years!
And he is not teaching my son very well either. No card from my son. No present from him. Aren't dad's supposed to get on the ball at some time and do something for the mommy on her special days like her birthday and mother's day? Don't even get me started on Mother's day this year. Big FLOP! My poor son. I am just trying to make a good impression on him for his daddy's birthday and Father's day in hopes he will learn something and want to do it for my day. One can only HOPE.
So it doesn't seem like my birthday. This has been a weird year. Usually Thanksgiving ushers my day in, but this year I haven't seen my parents all week. They went to celebrate Thanksgiving with my sis in GA.
Nothing special is going on today. Since we are trying to pay off bills, no special celebrations will be happening. I'm just not feeling it. Maybe it is becuase I am getting older? EEEK! Don't say that!
Well hope you had a great Thanksgiving and nothing happened to you that happened to me last year. I still have a small scar to remember the day. Read about Last year's Thanksgiving Accident Here. So I guess I should be thankful!! I still have all of my fingers!!
Hope you have a great day.
