Brag, Brag, Brag and no Shame
It's time again for the Insecure Writer's Support Group! I am not a writer but I feel I was in another life (shhh don't let Shirley Maclaine read this or she will say she was Jane Austin).
It tuned 50 on June 2nd! Yes ...Yes I did! I feel, mentally, like I am 30 but I am 50-a half century old. When I write this I feel like I should put on my best black babushka outfit and walk around wheeling a cart behind me with some hay.
My wonderful hubby made a "surprise" birthday party....I knew it was coming-pretty hard to fool me as my evil mind starts watching all the things that are happening. First off, my hubby is a Gemini like me which means he can't keep his mouth shut. He is also severe ADHD-basically Speedy Gonzales on speed. H would talk about how much he had to get done and cleaned. well that was the first big tip off for me. He cleans and is OCD anyway but he kept talking about it. He also wanted my recipe for my deviled eggs.
2nd -I was at work and saw that he called my friend who works there-another tip-she tried to cover but please I am like Columbo when it comes to these things. My other friend called Tuesday morn and was surprised to talk with me....he forgot that I don't start work until 11:30-...the plot thickens.
3rd-Michael got his birthday card from his Aunt and he didn't want me to see what was written so I knew she was coming. His sister also said his Aunt and Uncle were coming but they made it sound like this was the best time for them which it was but still.....
4th-Saturday-His sister-a wonderful gal who takes in all strays said she wanted to take me out and would be here at 10am-when I asked if it could be later My sweetie just about did a Fred Flinstone and blew his top and the roof and told me to be ready for 10-hahahaha. She was also here at 10! She is never, I repeat, never, on time. If you would ask me when she is on time I would be asking when Paris Hilton grew a brain.
So I went out, had a great time and great lunch and then we came back. I did not know all the details but suffice to say my hubby out did himself. All the effort and work he put into this showed his love to me (now you must say awwwwwwww:)) His bro in law made a great banner and my friends were all here. I had a wonderful time and consider myself truly blessed. The place was clean(wowzers), our dog Wallace was not freaked out and the cats hid...for the most part. There were streamers and balloons and food and cake which he did not bake for heaven's sake, too much time it would take. Friends, family, my hubby, Love, memories, joy-I am blessed
