80's Double theme- Annie& Chuck E. Cheese!
Nate’s birthday is 2 weeks before mine and for his request was to do nothing. This drove me insane. I let him sleep in and then proceeded to pester him to do something. Which, I guess would be frustrating when he wanted to do nothing.
I made him a cake. He took the day off of work to read a book about Lewis and Clark and fixed our 80-year old neighbor’s mailbox.
Two weeks later, he who hates his own birthday planned a wonderful surprise for me. And he didn’t even attend. The surprise involved phone stealing, favorite friends-calling and lunch at the French bistro that was opened just for us. Wow.
He loves me well.
Next year, Nater, I promise, no fuss. No balloons, no pestering wife, just all of us together. I know it is your favorite. And you are mine.
