Happy Birthday!!

For those who've been reading this blog, you know I turned the big 5-0 last August. Now it's my husband's turn. He always jokes about how we were born in different decades -- though I'm only four months older than he is.

We'd hoped to go on little trip this weekend -- he took yesterday and Monday off -- but it turned out there's a volleyball tournament so off we go.

I feel bad because I haven't done a thing for him. Nothing. He's too hard to buy presents for -- he mentioned a new leather coat but I figured it would be better if he actually tried one on and found a style he liked. But, so far, I haven't been able to get him to even go look. I suppose I should have just bought one and then we could have taken it back. But, Christmas, 2008, I got him a jacket which didn't fit -- he was supposed to go with me to pick out a replacement but he never did -- and I never even took the thing back for a refund. Oh, well, the high school auction got something nice -- and I think it went for me than I paid for it.

He said he doesn't feel any different today than he did yesterday. I know the feeling.
