My birthday was 4 months ago, For my birthday, I got nothing. DH said happy birthday in the morning, and that was it. I mean I got nothing, no card, no cake NOTHING. Whatever. We don't have a lot of money, so even though it hurt, I didn't make a big deal out of it.
So yesterday was DH's birthday. When he left for work I was still sleeping, so as soon as I woke up, I called and told him happy birthday, and even though I don't have a car, I asked a neighbor to take me to the store and I got him a cake and cards from me and the kids. I had gotten a really nice travel coffee mug (unopened) and a set of really nice darts as freebies so I wrapped them up for him.
So when he gets home from work, we sing, we have cake and he gets his gifts. I thought it was okay.
TODAY he is off and we are working outside in the garden and he is quiet, and you can tell he has an attitude. I ask what's wrong, and he says "I'm disappointed that no one put forth any effort for my birthday" I swear the top of my head almost popped off.
WTF? I didn't even respond. I'm going to buy myself something on ebay for my belated birthday celebration today.
