My wonderful husband, the man of my dreams of 15 years, turned 40 yesterday. He is such a wonderful man, and an incredible father. We have been together a long time and I can't imagine spending my life with anyone else. But he has this one flaw, he is not one to let me throw big parties and make a big deal out of his birthday. He would rather go along like any other day and not be the center of attention. (This is why we get along so well, we are total opposites!)
It took everything I had not to decorate his office in black balloons, or put up big signs proclaiming his man hood! But I refrained. I was good and did not make a big deal out of the day. We had a quiet dinner at home and the girls gave him presents and I made him his favorite Whoppers cupcakes. YUM!
Later in the evening he said, "I could tell you were wanting to be ornery. Thanks for not doing anything." I replied, " I knew paybacks may not be so nice." You see, in a few short months I will bid my 30s goodbye and welcome a new decade with open arms. But I want a big shin-dig!!! (Are you reading this hun?)
