First of all, let me say that I am simply in awe of both my real life buddies and bloggy buddies who have so kindly offered to send my grandma birthday wishes. It warms my heart, and I'm sure it will warm hers as well. I just know she is going to be completely tickled. So thank you, thank you, thank you for taking time from your busy lives to do that for us. I truly appreciate it.
In other news, I'm still sick. Still. And it stinks. I felt better on Monday so I took a subbing job, on a rainy day, for first graders. By the time I got home my throat was hoarse. When I woke up Tuesday morning I had a horrid sore throat and intensified stuffiness. Ick.
So that is how I started our anniversary morning. And the day went downhill from there. I did not have my finest moments yesterday. In short, I'm an ass. Brian was worried that I wouldn't like the gift he got me. I assured him I would because I knew he had put a lot of thought into it. However, after I saw what it was I couldn't even fake it. And he knew. I tried to explain. It isn't that it wasn't nice, it really was. It's just that I don't have the lifestyle to support the gift and use it appropriately. And I'm not comfortable to just let it sit around and mock me. So it is going to be sent back. And I feel/felt like an ass. Right after that we left the house to get our massages. I was so upset about upsetting Brian that I couldn't even relax and enjoy it. I just couldn't wait for it to be over. Afterwards we ran a couple of errands and by the time we got home I was ready for a nap. And I napped right on through until it was too late for us to make our dinner reservations. Brian cancelled and we will celebrate our anniversary another night. And in spite of everything, he still loves me like crazy and I love him like crazy too. We get a do-over. And next time it will be better. I'm sure everyone has had a dud of an anniversary, right?!?!?!? Please share your anniversary duds with me.
