So I did it. I absolutely couldn’t help myself and I don’t regret it in the least. Yes, it was spur of the moment. And, no, it wasn’t absolutely necessary. But, my goodness, it’s going to be so much fun, even though I’m not entirely sure what will come of it.
I took this upcoming Monday off from work! 🙂
It’s just that Nate has been home all week, and will be for a couple more weeks, and I thought, “Why not take advantage of it and have a long weekend to spend together?”
I mean, how often do we both have three days off in a row… at the same time??
This sudden inspiration came to me yesterday as I was walking into work, and I was so excited at the idea that I rushed to my desk and called home… despite the fact that it was 8am and the hubby was still sleeping. (I’ve never been very good at waiting, when it comes to sharing good news).
Go for it!!
(If you look really closely at this pic, you can see a yellowish glow around his eyes. That’s because the black is turning a neon yellow color. But I’m sure you can also notice that he’s starting to smile for pics again. That’s always a good sign!). 🙂
I’m not entirely sure yet what we want to do on the three days we have off. See, this Saturday is my birthday! And I’m one of those people who absolutely adore birthdays and who milk them for all they’re worth… by celebrating all weekend…. and sometimes all month, but we won’t go there. 😉
The family is coming over Friday night for a traditional birthday BBQ and icecream sundaes. (Already stocking up with icecream supplies). I usually always come up with a theme for the party, just because it’s fun, but this year the theme is “It’s been too crazy lately to come up with a theme.” Ha, Ha!
But anyway, on my birthday itself and for my b-day gift, Nate and I were originally going to eat at one of Boston’s nicest restaurants. I love an excuse to dress up and to eat amazing food. But after Nate’s assault at work and just considering how crazy the week has been, I’m now dreaming of flip flops, tank tops, jean skirts, and picnics.
I just want something slow-paced. Casual. Relaxed. Fun.
So who knows what Nate and I will end up doing. I just know that we’ll be doing it together, and I cannot wait!!! And so the countdown to Friday afternoon begins….
Are you a fan of birthdays or do you try to ignore them? 🙂
