Gotta whine

Just a quick whine for today. I think I'm starting to hate birthdays. You look forward to them (free stuff! people remember me!) but then reality rears its ugly head and you want to run and cry in your room. I *use* to like the week leading up to my birthday, a whole week to celebrate ME!!!!! But I've come to the conclusion that I'm the only one that gives a rat's ass, and I should pamper myself, EXCEPT, pampering yourself around your birthday is just not right. It doesn't count. And you shouldn't have to force people to bestow gifts on you...that also doesn't count. So here we are, 4 days from B day, and not even a card in the mail yet. And to make matters worse, I also feel neglected from my Secret Pal AND a gal in a yarn exchange group I'm in. The whole universe is conspiring against me.
Excuse me while I go find some tissues.

I see nothing wrong with spoiling yourself on your birthday! I know this sounds weird, but a few months ago, a friend of mine invited several of us to Disneyland to celebrate her birthday. She paid for it and everything because she LOVES D-Land so much! Her birthday wish was to be able to spend her birthday with people she loved at the place she loved. Now this may be a bit extreme, so this is what I do: I spoil myself. I buy myself something nice, eat somewhere special, treat yourself special! Go get a manicure and pedicure, get a massage! Nothing wrong with spoiling yourself. :)

Other people would care... if they knew! Have I taught you nothing - if you spread the word, you will reap the rewards!

Now post your addy so we can send cards!

Oh, no no, pampering yourself is a good thing, especially near your birthday! Mine is the day after Christmas and you better believe I pamper myself. Everyone else is too tired and broke to do it for me! Feel confident that you are not forgotten, I'm the third comment, so you know we care. :-) Honestly, though, I do understand. The older I get the more reflective I become. Go on out there and make your birthday a happy one!

Would you like some cheese with that whine?

Don't worry, I'll send your present and card some time this year...after all, I'm still waiting for mine ;)

Go on, spoil yourself!! Buy yourself some yarn and chocolates.
