Birthday 2007

Yesterday was my birthday. It wasn't anything special. I received TONS of emails and ecards from my online friends. I appreciated each and every one. Guess what my mother gave me? A pair of men's leather work gloves. I graciously thanked her, but in my mind I was thinking "What am I suppose to do with these?" I received text messages and phone calls from my siblings. One person at work wished me a happy birthday. The new guy? No phone call, no email, no text message, no nothing. Is it too much to expect birthday wishes from someone you've spent two months getting to know? My brother said it's a bunch of BS, and to get rid of him.

I am sorry to hear that your new guy forgot you on your big day. :( I'd be upset too. (Actually--been there, done that.) I am sure he will have a wonderful excuse. But I'll keep my fingers crossed that's it's a wonderful surprise instead. :)

Happy Birthday Meari!

So sorry to hear that certain people in your life did not celebrate you and your birthday the way it should have been. Focus on the good people who recognise what a treasure you are in their lives!

Happy Belated Birthday! I had no idea! Work gloves...hmmm.. she must have thought they were women's gloves. I agree with your brother, sort of... it is worth asking him why he didn't acknowledge your birthday.... men!

Happy Happy Belated Birthday to you! Your Mother must have thought they were for women she meant well. How could he not be aware of your birthday? Maybe he got busy.

I'm sorry that I missed your birthday, Meari! I hope that you had a nice day. :) I can't believe that your new guy forgot, when he has been so sweet and kind this whole time. You should just come out and ask him about it. This is D.? Doesn't sound like the actions of the same person that you've talked about before.

Happy belated birthday, sorry it had it's downpoints. I'd try mentioning the next time I talked to him some of the stuff that did happen for your birthday and see his reaction. He may have just forgot, or he may not have been focusing when he was originally told when it was. In other ways it sounds like he has been very thoughtful. As a sign, it could go either way.

Happy Belated birthday! I am sorry your special guy didn't call or do anything for your birthday. I don't think forgetting a birthday is something to get rid of him for, I would confront him and see what he was thinking.
