Today is my birthday. I've known for about a month and a half that Brian was going to have to work tonight.
Apparently the head honcho dudes at Brian's company picked January 31st to fly to Boston and attend a Bruins game.
Being the awesome wife I am, I told him that I was fine with him having to shmooze and kiss some corporate booty on my birthday. Deep down I felt kind of crappy about him working tonight, but come on! Am I going to force my husband to skip out on an evening that may potentially help his career and pad our bank account somewhere down the road?
I think not.
So I put on my big girl panties and told my husband it was fine.
I smiled, gave him a big hug and a smooch, and told him he would just have to make it up to me.
And boy did he ever.
He reserved a room at the Back Bay Hotel in downtown Boston on Saturday night. He recruited my little sis and her boyfriend to spend that night at our house to care for Simon and the kitties. I was also treated to a very romantic, very delicious dinner at The Capital Grille Restaurant that included a piece of cake larger than most countries.
Please excuse the iPhone picture quality - not sure what the glowing halo is around my head, but it's in about 5 other pictures we took that night. Maybe it's just that....my halo :)
My weekend was amazing. For the first time in a long time, I actually got to sleep in. No kitties walking across my head looking for breakfast at the crack of dawn. No Simon waking me up with his tug toy in my face. No barking, or meowing, or crying, or whining. Just me, Brian, and some Sunday morning snuggling.
What makes me a little sad (just a little) is that I'm home by myself tonight on my birthday. I've decided that next year I'm going to take the day off from work, get a massage, do some shopping, and celebrate me alllllllll day.
In the meantime, I was hoping you'd all leave me some birthday love in my comments section. You know, just to make me feel a little less alone tonight.
Thanks guys :)
