Hi bees. It’s my birthday! And my day is not going so great :/
First, I overslept and was late to work.
I worked until noon. On my way home I notice my car was pulling one direction and progressively got worse the closer I got to home. I looked it over when I got home, and of course I have a flat tire. I think it started as a slow leak and just got progressively worse. By time DH came out to check it out, it was 100% empty. So even though we only live 2 blocks from a tire center, they can’t do it until tomorrow morning. So cancel dinner plans, and the movie. Guess we’re ordering pizza tonight.
Then DH gave me my gift. A curling iron. Nope, not a fancy, nice one. But a $30 bed head from Target. Why? I have no idea. I curl my hair everyday, and it’s just fine with the iron I have. Not to sound petty, but I’m a little disappointed.
I can’t wait to see what happens next…

Don’t be so harsh on your husband…I’m sure he didn’t mean to upset you with his non-fancy curling iron.
Sorry about your tire and happy birthday

Aw sorry things aren’t going the way you planned!
Think of the gift this way. Your DH noticed how you do your hair, and that thought was really nice. Maybe he thought yours was getting old and thought he’d buy you a new one.
Here’s a cute bday pic to make you smile:

@krex: Awe man!! Crappy birthday! Sorry it turned out that way, hopefully you can get your tire fixed tomorrow and have a re-do. Maybe your FI thought your current curling iron needed a break? lol that would be funny if the rest of your day had gone great 🙁 Hope tomorrow is a better day, and Happy Birthday!!

@krex: Sorry about your birthday. My FI would have bought me something similar, except I told him to never ever ever get me beauty products becasue I’m super picky about mine.

Happy Birthday & sorry it’s not going well! Can you postpone your actual birthday celebrations and go to that nice restaurant and movie next week or something? You can always have a do-over. 🙂
And think of the present from another perspective – he notices it’s something you need every day and thinks is important to you. That’s pretty sweet, right? (Next year, just drops lots of glaring hints all over the place, or just give him a list to choose from. ;P)

@krex: happy birthday! I feel your pain. My bday was yesterday. I had a wisdom tooth pulled tuesday, a conference with my sons school yesterday, pms, a cold, AND my FI “didn’t have time to get me a card” I’ll admit it. I cried. A lot. Ugly tears lol hope your day gets better!
