All I want for my birthday is a whole day to spend just with Noah. And what I want to do is this:
-go through all the boxes of his from his parent's house
-finish all the "little projects" around the house
-go through the closets, the drawers
-come up with a huge pile of stuff to give away
-go on a long bike ride
-maybe grab a chicken critter salad from Texas Roadhouse
That's it. It doesn't take much to make me happy :)
I was telling my friend Valerie about this yesterday. I said "that is what I want to do. But when I tell Noah he is going to roll his eyes and be annoyed that I don't want to do something more fun. But he won't be able to say anything because it is MY birthday and I should get to pick, right?"
So I told Noah.
And he sighed and rolled his eyes.
Because he wants to do something fun (and he doesn't want to get rid of any of his junk).
And that is the way we are.
I may have asked this last year, but since I don't label my posts I don't know.
What do you like to do for your birthdays?
Dinner out with friends?
Hanging with the kids?
Time with spouse?
(obviously everyone wants a trip, but lets keep it realistic and in budget, people. I am, after all, a practical girl)
