I hope I got this right that you said it was your "day" today......so I assume that means its your birthday. In which case I wanted to wish you a very special day today!!!!!
I hope you and your hubby are doing something nice to celebrate!!!!
Birthday Hugs to you Jill. I hope you have a great day.
The last time Mom ask me how old I was she got the most shocked look on her face and said "That's impossible you can't be that old!! That's "senior citizen" age!!! I had to laugh. Then I told her I was 30. That gave her a good laugh and she said " I know your lying now. Your older than that".
Thank you my dear friends... You all made my day. Seeing as I didn't hear from my dear children...sigh..boys what can I do with them besidea choke them. The one is in Japan, so I guess I won't hear from him til the week end. but the one that's 10 miles away?
happy birfday to me....as he used to say.......thanks once again. I only wish mamma and daddy were here....
ibake&pray, if your son is anything like my son, he has a seive for memory and can't remember what day it is, let alone a birthday...lol and he blames me if I don't remind him. I filled out a calendar with everyone's birthday and gave it to him and he still forgets but atleast now he has no one to blame but himself. He's in his 20's and his memory is worse than mine. LOL I'm glad you enjoyed your day..
You need to do what I have done Jill.... my best friend calls my daughter on the morning of my birthday to tell her to call her Mom. hehe!! I caught on the first year but I just smile. She hs work and school and full life and her brain doesn't remember yet she feels like a jerk when she forgets so it works for us all. My daughter's memory is jogged, my best friend fells like a hero, and I get my happy birthday! I do hope you had a splendid day and this year will be the best ever!
That's why we are here Jill My daughter will call if somebody jogs her memory. I will have to admit that my best friend never forgets and comes up with the best birthday presents. Last year, in the midst of the craziness with my parents, she kidnapped me for a weekend to the beach. It was delightful. Then I kidnapped her on her birthday and we did it again. Nothing like me taking her to her beach camper for her birthday lol For christmas we gave each other a night out, dinner and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra concert. I would rather have time than any present! The older I get the more I understand the value of time.
You need to do what I have started doing with hubby. I wake up and say... Happy Birthday to me today.... and make sure he heard it. That usually gets back, well I guess we will be going out to dinner tonight. I just nod and smile. Sometimes you have to demand what you want. Like the year I called my daughter and said... I know you want to wish me a happy birthday today. That is when my best friend started calling her. Yep, I'm very into boundaries and requesting what I need That is one of the lessons I have learned from this ALZ adventure.
Well, I am wearing my microwave on my finger....we have a microwave/convection oven that we had used and gotten something too hot in and had a burned smell in. Well, the Sunday evening before my Monday birthday my dear sweet hubby gets up and starts to put his jacket on. I looked at him and said "If you're going out to get me a microwave for my birthday, you can just forget it." He took off his jacket and sat down.
It seems that Macy's was having a diamond sale that week so I stopped by with him in tow and showed him the diamond channel band that I wanted and told the lady about the microwave story. She looked at him, shook her head and said "that was a really bad move." So I am now wearing my microwave on my little finger and it really sparkles very nice thank you! And it cost a bit more than the microwave that was on sale too. Microwave, for heavens sake....You might as well get me a mop and bucket...

I know that trick Jill. Other than my engagement ring I have one other diamond ring bought by hubby. We were married right after christmas so just before christmas, our 20th anniversary, I brought home a layaway card. I love my anniversary ring.
The christmas I got my lap top he ask me what I wanted. I said, a laptop. He said, you don't need a lap top. I said, you didn't ask what I needed. I got my lap top! The christmas before.... I got the microwave!!! I have also gotten a vacumn cleaner, a set of corel dishes, shall I go on?!?!
Yep, you eventually learn to just put it on lay away or drag them to the store.
