Thank you all for your sweet birthday wishes to boy. He was truly blown away. Tam at Inprogress asked if we had any run in for 2008. No it really went off pretty smoothly if you don't count the dog getting sick on the carpet and boy having to call an ambulance for a friend at work. That friend is fine, so I'd call it a successful one.
One of the best things about boy's birthday is the fact that in exactly 7 days my birthday rolls around. Boy felt that we were truly meant to be together when he realized there would be no effort in remembering my birthday; it's not really too hard to remember a week. And for exactly 7 days out of the year boy is 3 years older than me so I run around exclaiming how old he is. But the better than best part is the fact that we get presents on each other's birthday, so we feel like those kid's that need presents on other people's birthday so they don't feel left out and cry.
Yesterday his parents came into town for his celebration. Hint the delicious ice cream cake from Carvel that I will be running off till next year. We opened presents then headed out for dinner. I don't know about y'all, but we are a little nervous heading out to a restaurant particularly the ones that sing to you. Boy and I hate having attention drawn to us, so before we get out of the car we beg and plead for no one to inform any restaurant staff member of the event and then we spend the entire meal making sure that no family member suddenly wanders away from the table or is alone with the waiter. We high fived it out the door yesterday when we bypassed standing up on a chair and flapping our arms like a bird for a free piece of cake (birthday 2004). No dessert is worth that public humiliation.
And if you make me do well then you might as well toss into the gift a free therapy session.
