Today is my birthday (it's still December 13 here). I'm 34...yippee, lol.
Just wondering what everyone thinks of this. Got up like normal to make sure the kids got off to school on time. They did. Hubby was at work as usual (leaves at 3:30am and gets home around 10pm and goes right to bed to get up at 3:30am again).
The entire day not a single one of them acknowledged my birthday. I didn't get a "happy birthday" from any of them, not even a text from my husband. He came home at 10 and gave me a hug like he normally does, had dinner and went to bed. No mention of my birthday at all.
I stopped expecting gifts years ago. The kids were too little to get any and my husband never thought about that stuff. Cards, too...haven't gotten one from my husband in years for anything (anniversary, Mother's Day, etc). But I figured I'd get at least a "happy birthday". I guess that's over, too.
And the kids just don't care if it doesn't involve stuff for them.
Part of my really doesn't care. It's just another day. I was home alone with the kids, had a headache all day, had to cook and clean and do laundry like any other day. But the other part is just bummed that I mean so little to them that they can't even wish me a happy birthday.
At least I have friends online. About 1/3 of the people on my facebook wished me a happy birthday (all friends and family) and my dad sent me a gift that I was totally not expecting (I got a violin and a bunch of stuff to go with it, it's been coming in little packages over the last 3 days...I got 4 deliveries today alone, lol).
I thought we were going to Red Robin on Wednesday to celebrate (I get a free burger) but now my husband says he wants chili on Wednesday so I guess I'm cooking.
Anyone else just ignored by their family?

Its usually the same way with me unless I say something to my husband. My son is only 3 year...so he cant say happy birthday to me uless hes told to. My parents usally send me a card with money in it.(has my brother bring it to me since I dont talk to them) But yeah...DH doesnt celebrate our annerversary or valentines day. I used to get really bummed out when he didnt aknowledge it, but have gotten used to it. Im sorry this happens to you!

Sorry this happened, my fil is the same w/my hubby, for the past 3 yrs he always calls my df on his bday only to tell him something else, never a happy bday, now df sisters bday is the following month& thats when fil calls cuz he never forgets his dd bday& that is when he always realizes its df bday.
