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.

Don't feel guilty!! I wouldn't lol Part of being a happy healthy mama is getting some down time, and a birthday is a perfect day for that.
I predict a riot.

you know, if it was the other way around with you being with the kids all day while dh did what he wanted for his birthday you'd never give it another thought.

Enjoy days like these, who knows when one will come around again.

Thanks ladies, I'm so over the guilt by now.

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.
