Dh has been down with a stomach bug---I promise, no details----so we're going out tonight to celebrate my birthday.
Before kids, we'd celebrate New Year's Eve and my birthday together (my birthday's the third), but that hasn't happened in years. Now, we do a nice dinner out and are home early.
Each time we go out to a nice place (for birthdays or anniversaries) we find ourselves seated next to DRAMA. First date disasters; obviously bored couples; little kids who are up way past their bedtimes; and the worst--- business travelers who mistake the dining room for their office and have laptop and papers strewn over the table and who shout into their cellphone while we try to whisper sweet nothings.
I wish I could write romantic comedy; there is so much material in our "dates."
So, happy belated birthday to me.
This year is a BIG birthday for my DH (in the fall), so I may throw a surprise party for him. I would hate to have have one thrown for me, though.
How do you celebrate your birthday? Do you enjoy a fancy dinner out? Have you experienced dining disasters? What's your opinion about surprise parties?
