Emily surprised me this morning with breakfast in bed. Four cookies, 2 pieces of dry toast and a juice box. She brought me a banana later. It was the best birthday breakfast I ever had!
But, I went to work today and brought donuts (It's winter break, so there are not many people in the building. This equals lots of donuts left.)
|Aren't they gorgeous?|
Then Brian wanted to take me out for a nice dinner. He made reservations at the Melting Pot. I didn't want to go to the Melting Pot. I've never wanted to go to the Melting Pot. He wanted to go someplace in Algoma, which sounded really good, but when he called, they didn't do reservations and we couldn't eat until after 8. I hate waiting for a table more than anything. I have Texas Roadhouse programmed into my phone so I can do call ahead seating. I HATE waiting.
So he got crabby. He said he wanted to do something fancy and special for my 40th. I told him I don't like fancy. I told him he's really over thinking things. I said, "I love Frank's Pizza. I love Texas Roadhouse. And I love perch from Lake Park. Let's do one of those things. My perfect birthday would have been coming home to my dishes done and a new TV in my bedroom with the Wii hooked up to it."
So we got home after my massage, and he brings in my present from the kids, which is the serger I always wanted. I don't have a clue how to use it, but I'll figure it out (the knives part is a little scary!)
Then Brian said, "Go into the bedroom." and there is a new TV with the Wii hooked up to it. Genius! Score!
|He had to get the better one because the salesperson told him I was playing video games on it. And he doesn't like to buy cheap crap.|
Then there is another package from my friend Thora. I was speechless. Inside was tons of wonderful yarn, and a felting daisy kit and honey soap with little bees on it and a pretty bracelet and a lovely card:
