Today is my birthday, DH planned for me to go out, have fun, go shopping. He let me sleep in this morning, I got $200.00 worth of GC's to spend.
So why do I feel so guilty? I have been out ALL day since noon time, and just got home around 8. DH watched my friend's kids so she could come with me.
I can't help but feel bad that I nearly blew through $200.00, (I saved some to get a new bag and some flip flops from ON to match my outfits, we had to come home since it was getting late), and that I didn't spend ANY time with my family today, besides this morning. I can't even get birthday sex because AF is here, and I just feel...GUILTY.
DH says I shouldn't, that it wasn't too bad of a day for him with all of the kids, and that I had fun, that this is what I wanted. I honestly thought we'd be done shopping by about 5 or 6, but not 8!
Not to mention that because I ran a little later than I thought, DH has to go another 15 minutes out of his way to pick up my phone, he was supposed to pick it up from a town near us, it was going to be a 15 minute drive, now it's like a 30 minute drive because the guy went out to eat and DH has to go meet him at the restaurant now.
I echo everybody else. Enjoy your birthday!! If I had an entire day to just go shopping, I would be THRILLED. I'm happy you were able to spend some time just for yourself. I want to know what you got, too!
I got lots of clothes, like 4 new pairs of capris, a BUNCH of new tank tops, a bunch of new underwear (and finally, not something that comes in a 6 pack at Target)... adult, sexay underwear, 3 new bras (2 which have straps that I can wear normal or criss cross for racerback tanks),. I literally had no summer clothes and prior to this had cut a pair of jeans I didn't like that much, just to have a pair of capris. I also bought some flip flops at ON that match some of my tank tops.
