I love my birthday. I don't need to have a big deal made, I don't need a gigantic party.
I enjoy spending the day doing what I want, where I want, and when I want. (Well after carting kids around)
Gunner's gone most of the time, and that's okay too. Sure I would much rather have him home, but it's not the end of the world, and I know it's at least one day during deployments that I am assured a phone call.
I'm thinking I will start the day with carting kids, followed by a trip to the gym. I have a laser appointment for the afternoon, and maybe I can fit in a pedicure, or at least a nap and read a little bit.
I know my kids love me, my husband loves me, my family loves me. What more could I want?
Maybe I'll find a cupcake place and get cupcakes for after dinner, which I have already decided will be lambchops, and maybe artichokes?
What's your favorite birthday tradition while your husband is gone?
