How to Celebrate Your Husbands Birthday

1. Over sleep by an hour and half and fly out of bed like a mad women.
2. Grab cell phone and call boss (who is already on your last nerve from the day before... but I digress).
3. Run downstairs and wake up 14 year old son who's alarm clock is broke and I have been waking him up for the past week.
4. Almost trip over cat running downstairs and almost die (at this point would of been a blessing).
5. Run back upstairs (and almost have a heart attack from running all over the effing house).
6. Grab clothes off hanger and throw them on my body.
7. Answer Husband's question of "Is there anything I can do to help?". Which was "no".
8. Throw my hair in a pony tail and brush my teeth.
9. 14 year old son tells me has missed the bus.
10. Say naughty words under my breath, as it's not his fault.
11. Throw keys at 14 year old son and he goes to start the car (it's back down in the 20's again, so must pre-heat car again).
12. Grab my lunch and set husband's out on the table.
13. Yell "I love you, Goodbye" to husband.
14. Take 14 year old to the H*LL they call a Junior High and spend 20 minutes trying to get out of parking lot.
15. Get out finally and get on Interstate.
16. Discover you forgot Husband's birthday.
17. Burst into tears....

Ah, yes. I don't think it counts though, unless you forgot it ALL DAY LONG.

One year, I woke up and stumbled to the breakfast table and made my daughter some cereal. When my husband came out I gave him a hug and sat back down. My daughter said, "Happy Birthday Daddy." And so from then on my husband said I "forgot" his birthday. I wasn't even AWAKE! That SO DOESN'T COUNT. I would have remembered it in a few minutes. Probably.

You poor thing! We've all had these days, but I'm sure that doesn't make you feel any better. I hope you remembered to tell hubby later!

It happens to all of us!!! At least you remembered! I hope you stopped and bought a new alarm clock for the teenager... They make a new one that I say in Rachael Ray magazine that actually rolls of the dresser and moves around... Might be effective

Eh, you can make it up to him tonight. I'm sure he'll understand! (hugs)

New Years resolution for next year?? Don't forget Hubby's birthday.. lol.. Plan a dinner out this weekend, and then act like you've had it planned for FOREVER. That's the tactic I would go with. Act all smug, in the fact that you Did not forget his birthday (remember to act like this imprompto dinner has been planned since forever.)

You naughty girl! But, you know, once I forgot that my husband was graduating (from his Master's program). My mind was so full of all the things we needed to do to move back home the day after graduation, that I didn't think about him at all. And when he received a graduation card from his sister, I said, "What's that for?"

Poor guy.

I hate mornings like that. Last Sunday we were late and running around like crazy chickens- managed to shower ALL kids, and get out the door, load up the car- still only 8 minutes late- the engine light comes on!! AUGH!!! All kids out of car- into truck, me twist ankle, hair that was looking good is being twisted in the tornado of wind we were having- made it to church 25 minutes late. Sat in the WAY back...on a good note- we were the first ones out afterwards!

Hubby will understand. I need to go read your other post.

Being a husband and as most of the ladies seem to know from the comments as long as you give him some attention later he'll forget everthing else. I found it funny one of the ads on your blog was for a gym here in Alabama.
