All in all, the day ended yesterday just fine.
My husband, as usual, was more than grateful for how we spent his birthday. I was, as usual, way to hard on myself.
Yesterday I called him, I text him and I emailed him Happy Birthday wishes.
I made dinner last night and we ate it ALONE (my oldest son was asleep after working the 4 am shift, my middle son was at his friends house for dinner - his friend is moving this Friday and they have been best friends for 6 years, my daughter was at dance). It was great to sit and TALK uninterrupted. When our daughter got home she had painted some ceramic mugs for him and gave them to him for his gift. We gave him all his cards. For his birthday he is getting a new big screen somethingoranother monitor, so he is excited about that.
Then later he got the gift he really wanted. *wink*
So, all in all it ended up fine.
