What happens when you think too much!
So the wonderful hubby and I start talking about what we are going to do with the remaining weekends he has off and the topic of my birthday came up. He really was just wanting to know what I wanted to do for my birthday but me, in all my greatness, couldn't come up with a single thing. Why is it I am so good about coming up with things for others but when it comes to myself I am completely incompetent? It is like with Christmas money, I would rather spend it on someone else than myself. I have spent more of my gift money on my kids than myself. Why is it so hard for me to do for myself? I knew as a parent you tend to become less selfish but I am afraid I have gone to far in the other direction. I have a hard time handing that dough over for something I don't "need." I really need to start doing for myself more and it doesn't have to take money. I really need to come up with something I really want to do for my birthday. The only thing I asked for, gift wise, was tickets to Phantom. Not sure that will happen but I can hope. I used to love to be the center of attention but now I would rather just stay in the crowd. Is this just one of the transitions as you grow up/older? Who knows...why can't I just come up with something to do for my birthday...it really isn't that hard! Is it? Suggestions welcome! :)
