Today marks the end of a marathon run of holidays for our family. Starting in early February, we run through a gamut of birthdays, Valentines, and anniversaries which finally concludes today with Amy’s birthday.
It is really a shame because being on the tail-end of this long run, her birthday never gets the attention that its preceding holidays do… By the time we reach the end of March, we are all ‘partied’ out. (My tongue is planted firmly in cheek as our parties are deemed sub-mild at best) Usually, she might get a couple of cards, and a hand-made gift or a book, and maybe some fast-food out or Victoria might make something for dinner.
…The sad thing is? Though I fully recognize that Amy is the true unsung hero of our family and deserves all the credit and more – This year, her birthday celebration will most likely remain the same.
Why, you ask? (and I’m so glad you did)
Next year will be Amy’s – umm… strike that – Next year, Amy will be celebrating a milestone birthday and, hopefully, will be having a celebration deserving of such a milestone. Soooo, if I do go all out this year, I would be hard pressed to do even better next year. I’m just
too lazy not creative nor resourceful enough to pull that off.
So having said all that (and knowing that she’ll be reading this later on today), I want to wish my wonderfully lovely wife and best friend a very, very Happy Birthday. You know I’d be lost without you…..
