I don’t understand how something that isn’t supposed to take hours ends up taking hours. For anybody who is having a birthday take my advice and TAKE THE STINKIN’ DAY OFF! Not just from work, but from everything. And make sure you get it off in time to tell your fiance so he can ask for the day off too, because if your fiance can get it off, then your whole day would have gone a whole lot better!
If you don’t want to do something, then do it some other time. It is your birthday and you really should spend it how you want to spend it.
As far as visiting my Gramma’s grave, I could have screamed when I saw that the bridge was closed. At that point I just really didn’t care anymore. I didn’t want to mess around with bridges and alternative routes. I went to two thrift stores and bought nothing but a crocheted hand towel type deal thing, you know, the kind they put on the fridge. It was 53 cents, Happy Birthday to me.
As I was in the second thrift store when Aaron called me to let me know that he was done with work. So I left and went back home to change out of my casual clothes into nicer going-out-to-eat clothes. And with a broken dryer my laundry has been neglected and smells like, well, dirty laundry. So I dig in my suitcase that I still haven’t unpacked yet and pulled out a denim dress. Meh, it was a little wrinkly, I could use the Downy Wrinkle Releaser. I searched for it and asked where it was. My brother said that he had it in his room. He came out with spray air freshener. “Then forget it.” I said blankly. I was done caring about it and I ended up wearing something I had worn two days earlier.
At this point I was too aggravated to care but you still probably did not want to talk to me. While waiting for Aaron to come I blew off some steam while playing FrontierVille on Facebook, when I really should have been praying this whole time!
My day immediatly got better when I saw Aaron standing in the doorway with flowers. We were matching and we didn’t even plan it that way! When we shut the back door behind us, we stood there for a long time and hugged each other, it is amazing what a hug can do.
My evening was about to get better. After some alternative routes and me finally realizing where we were, he took me out to eat, by this time I wasn’t thinking about how bad my day was. We went back to my parents house and he gave me my birthday present…are you ready ladies? A marble rolling pin!
Later my brother, Aaron and I sat around and spent time together, which consisted of making fun of the commercials on T.V. and contemplating how many cell phones you would need to be a ballerina.
Needless to say, the pressure has been released.
