Well through that experience I learned that my husband
Needless to say, I felt terrible the whole day (especially as he spent the majority of it cleaning out closets and organizing his hunting gear - I think because he was
So, we went out on a date last night. He got a ride to work with a friend and I (along with Fischer) picked him up at 5:30 and we went from there.
I started the night off by giving him a card from the "sympathy" section that said, "I'm sure you felt terrible when your birthday wasn't properly acknowledged and I'm sorry" (or something like that) which made him laugh (off to a good start) and followed it up with a really good birthday card (he appreciated that I got him a "good emotional one") and an espresso milkshake from our favorite coffee shop (those milkshakes are a rare treat and let me tell you - they are the BEST). We had driven there on his birthday to get one and the stinkin' coffee shop was already closed (a major fail that did not make the day any better for him...or me).
Next we went to Outback Steakhouse for dinner
After that we looked at what movies were playing and my husband took pity on me and didn't make me go see a super-hero movie (even though Batman, Spiderman and The Avengers were all playing) and since it was his birthday technically he does get to choose (guilt-free!) what we see. I was very grateful. So we just walked and talked and laughed until we decided to head home.
It was a great night. And I love that after being together for over 15 years (yes, we started YOUNG) we still prefer each others company to any other.
Man, I love that man.
