And you are all invited to my pity party.
I would have liked this…
Home made card by kids, thoughtful small gift (not expensive, thoughtful) from DH. Then maybe breakfast (Cheerios in a bowl, that I don’t have to pour)
DH had said he would take half the day off. This morning (not last night, not yesterday afternoon) he says he can’t.
None of the things above happened, “I forgot your gift at work” Kids made no card, oldest one is annoyed about not having had a playdate yesterday with one friend, because he was at my MIL’S.
This year for his birthday I went shopping with the kids. Got him a CD and some clothes. I took the kids shopping so they could get to help pick out his gift, but also to learn that when it’s someone’s birthday, you show them you care.
I made him a great breakfast, got him a cake, spent the day with his family.
Last year for his Birthday, I was out of town because my Godmother paased away. I still remembered his birthday, and left a gift and card he could find while I was away.
I vented to my sister, she told me that I sould know that’s the way he is, why get dissappointed by his lack of effort?
**I am dissappointed by his lack of effort. **
Bottom line…put some effort into our relationship. Is that asking too much? He thinks going to work, and working is putting effort into our relationship.
Thanks for the listening to my vent.
