Today I'm 33!

(I stole this picture from Christin's blog since its hard to take your own picture when you're sleeping)



Its my birthday today! Well, it will be for another 30 minutes them my day will be over.



I want to say thanks to the special people in my life like Christin who are always so thoughtful and make you feel special on your birthday. Though today was a normal day... I went to work, I did the groceries, and laundry. Christin gave me a lovely pair of earrings that match my favourite necklace, bought me dinner and flowers! The ladies at work also got me some spring bulbs and a copy of the British Cross Stitcher magazine, oh and cake!



As usual Todd does a great job in the gift department... I asked for a plane ticket to Florida (last week's trip). He does a down right shitty job of making you feel good on that special day. I did get a quick b-day kiss this am (before 7, so wayyyy to early!). But there's no card, no flowers, no treat. Nothing to make me feel like its anything than a normal day. Actually we didn't spend any time together at all, he's in bed and I'm doing the laundry. He just doesn't get it. I don't know why each year I think this year will be different ... its not. All I want is a crappy card from the dollar store with a few words in it. Is it that hard to do?

Happy Birthday! I am sorry that your birthday wasn't as special as you would have hoped. At least your friends treated you well.

Happy Birthday Dani.

Men are just not into cards you have to teach them lol. I know how you feel though as I would be heart broken if I did not get a card though we do not buy each other pressies. When we were young it was because we could not afford too, now its because we have reached a stage where if we want it we get it no matter what time of year.

Happy Birthday Dani!
My DH doesn't "get" cards either, I think its a man thing

Happy Birthday Dani! Men!! (enough said!)

Silverlotus said...

Happy birthday, Dani.

My husband is awful with birthdays too. I think it is because his parents never really celebrated them. (Can you imagine!!) I'll be picking up my own gift in a few weeks. *sigh*

Cheryl said...

Happy (belated) Birthday Dani! Glad you have such lovely friends.
Boo to Todd. I got REALLY upset one year when my DH did the same and it sure taught him a lesson - hes been good ever since. Probably scared not to LOL

Well, I take back the email I just sent you! Happy belated birthday...anytime you are feeling down, just remember your little black cat and know that your friends are thinking of you! Oh yea, our "men" are very alike, mine never thinks of a card either...Cameron remembers and even stays in on his lunch at school to make me one - I hope to at least "train" one of mine to care!
Have a great weekend!

Happy Birthday Dani! Guys just don't do cards I guess. The last card I got from DH was for my bday 2 years ago... before that... well, I think before we got married! And we've been married 6 years!

Belated Birthday Wishes, cute pic of you sleeping.
Great pics of your adventures.

CindyMae said...

I hope that you had a wonderful birthday! Although it does not sound like DH done much to help it be a good day. I am sorry for that!!! But remember you got lots of stitching/blogging friends who dearly care about you and pray that you have/had a great birthday!!

Happy Birthday Dani - I think it's a man thing with the cards. Sounds like your friends did you proud though.

Happy Birthday Dani!!

Happy Birthday Dani

Lynn said...

Belated Happy Birthday Dani! I'm not sure what you do for Todd on his special day but maybe if you did nothing he'd get the message. Then again, maybe not. At least you have plenty of friends who care about you. Hope you enjoyed your day just the same.

happy belated birthday Dani!

and as for your DH...well everyone else has said it too...they just don't get it sometimes. Tell him and then get HIM a card with it written inside it! :)

I also recommend the book "The Five Love Languages". Got my hubby to read it and he NOW gets it!

Karan said...

Belated Happy Birthday wishes Dani & (((((hugs))))). Nope, they don't get birthdays..... or anniversaries...... well, not until you cry bucketloads & tell them exactly why you're so upset. Mine hasn't forgotten since - though DS makes a point of reminding him!

lena-lou said...

Happy Birthday Dani even though it is late now the wishes are for the whole year :)

Lillie said...
