So my birthday is coming up in a couple weeks and I have no idea what I want. Okay, that’s not entirely true, there are plenty of things that I want.
I want include a new refrigerator, but that’s about $1200 too expensive. I want a stamped concrete patio in the backyard, but that’s between $6-10K too expensive. I thought about getting a bike, but I’m afraid I won’t use it much, just like the Wii Jamie bought me last year for my birthday that I’ve used only 3 times. I would like to go to the Brewer’s game, but it is a day game and I would have to find someone willing to take time off work to go.
And of course there is the obvious that I always want, breakfast in bed, flowers, a nice dinner and a relaxing evening, but with Jamie working on call that week, it’s just not going to happen (maybe the flowers).
However, I do know about one birthday present. My Mom is taking me to see Wicked which I am super excited about. Jamie would never take me and I wouldn’t want to be embarrassed by his snoring anyways.
Birthday’s just aren’t like they used to be. During grade school it was all about the party with friends, sleepovers and the latest craze (Popples, friendship bracelets, NKOTB, CDs, etc…). These days I’ll be happy with a phone call or a card. Where did it all change?
