Bah Humbug Birthdays!

Today was my birthday. I hate birthdays. Seriously, I hate my birthday and I am definitely not a fan of my birthday. You would think I would be on top of the world today, glowing in the limelight being queen for the day, I’m not, for me today is just another Wednesday in November.  Other people’s birthdays don’t bother me but mine-I just don’t get it. It’s not like the day is actually different from other days. No one has ever made a big deal about the day I came into the world and my family is definitely not the “celebratory” type.  I have a friend who celebrates her birthday for three weeks. The week before, the week of and the week after. She makes plans with every one of her friends to go out for lunches, dinners, movies etc. She basks in the glory of her birth. I have never been able to do that.  Another friend of mine spends the day with her husband, he takes her out for breakfast, then they go to a spa, do some shopping, dinner and home.  It’s all very foreign to me. I have always felt guilty having people “do” for me. I love doing for my friends and have fun when its their birthdays but somehow it all feels awkward to me.  Today was nice in that my husband let me sleep in, he did my carpools (lucky for me my carpool days fell out on my bday this year! I will have to see if I can arrange that for next year) and he took the kids to swimming lessons which he never does.  Other than that I can’t say it was much  different from any other day. I don’t feel any different, except older which at my age sucks!  I don’t mean to be the Grinch of birthdays but unfortunately I just am. So please forgive me if I forget your birthday or don’t seem to excited for you- as Jerry Seinfeld said best: “it’s not you its me!”
