Today is my birthday. I am 36. When my mom turned 36, she told my dad that he could trade her in for two 18 year olds. He declined. In light of recent events, I am not going to offer G-man the same deal.
My birthdays have the tendency to be subpar. For example...it always rains. I have no idea how this happens...but seriously, it always rains. (ETA: It is 10:11, and the rain is pouring down!!!) Yeah...there have been some sunny ones here and there (my 24th was great!), but in general, it is cool and rainy. I get alot of "I didn't have time to _______" so I will get back to you. Typically this means no cards, no gifts....or gifts that are handed to me in a Walmart bag.
My MIL left for vacation a few days ago......she forgot about my birthday. I talked to my mom on Monday....she has been so busy (I have no idea doing what considering she doesn't work, she doesn't clean, she doesn't volunteer, and she doesn't have friends), so "your birthday card and Mother's Day card will be late." Thanks Mom.
The kids did say happy birthday this morning. And G-man is cooking me dinner later.
But I am kind of feeling like I want to buy myself something...a token gift that says "hey Mysti.....it was a good thing you were born." Maybe I will stop on my way home and stroll few a shop or two. Not that we really have the money for this....but once in a while I need to put myself first...and my birthday is a perfect occasion.
Any thoughts on what I should get????
ETA: When I say I want to buy something....it doesn't necessarily have to be a big something that will take me 6 months to pay off. Right now, I am leaning towards stopping and getting my brows waxed on my way home, and maybe some fun socks.
