I have not only dug myself into a deep hole, I have seriously burried myself this time! Tomorrow, yes, tomorrow is my husbands birthday! Normally I am totally on top of this, I plan for weeks and sometimes even months for this occasion, coming up with something totally unexpected, something crazy and fun! Here are a couple of examples: I took him to New York one year, before we had children. It was so fun, I bought the tickets, booked a hotel, and planned out the whole thing with him not knowing anything! It was a wonderful trip, we have some of our best memories from this birthday! Another great, well probably the Greatest, well who am I kidding, the GREATEST birthday present yet, I bought him a day of flying. He got to go up in a private plane and learn to fly. He flew for almost an hour on his own, it is his dream to be a fighter pilot. He has everything going for him in that area, except for a willing wife. So, of course this was a hit!
So, here is the problem... How can I top last year??? How can I come up with something more exciting, more unanticipated, more unexpected than that? And in one day? I have been putting it off for weeks just figuring I'd think of something, but obviously I HAVE NOTHING! Its tomorrow and I have a couple of shirts and a pair of shoes, but thats it! I was going to take him to Costa Rica, but I haven't gotten all of the arrangments put together to at least give him the airline tickets or whatever. I thought about changing our plans to Cancun and maybe go deep sea fishing (which is also a huge dream of his), but I haven't lined anything up, so I am sunk! I am S.O.L.!!! If you have any great ideas or you want to tend for my children for a week so we can take a fabulous trips, well, you just let me know! Ha ha! Thanks for letting me vent! Here goes nothing...
