It is Always the Thought that Counts
John birthday has came and went. We did not properly celebrate it until this weekend. In the past I would buy him lavishing gifts and treat him to exclusive restaurants and a movie. Everything was on me for that day. Since I been here it has not been the same. This year I wanted to make the weekend great for him. Plus it been like two weeks we have not really seen each other. I knew he would be tired after flying so I planned a nice quiet weekend with just the two of us.
The night he came home I had a cake for him waiting and sang to him. In the morning, I started the day off with not bothering him by jumping on him like a dog to wake up. Yes, I am a bit annoying and crazy. My family can vouch for it. Instead I got out of bed quietly and walk to the store for a few things I did not have on hand and for fresh croissants. I decorated our living room table nicely with what was suppose to be a surprise breakfast into brunch. My poor baby was so tired he slept to almost noon. Thank goodness it was not a hot breakfast I was thinking to serve. When he woke up he gave me my hello kiss and ask me why is the living room door close. I told him half the truth that I was trying to keep the heat in. He open up the door and smiled from ears to ears. Gave me a big kiss and my bear hug to thank me. We ate and watch a little television together.
Late afternoon we finally decided to get out and do something. We window shop and looked at new gadgets. Looked around and saw we really have everything in the gadget world we like. Nothing interested us. Than John asked me if I would like to go any where I said why not just relax in tonight and get a few movies. As he was getting settle when we came home I took out my pizza dough I prepare the day before and started to make the Wasabi Mozzarella pizza with the works. Enjoyed it with the Dr. Pepper and Root beer. I swear our video place is like an American blockbuster. The workers are easy going and easy to talk with. We always talk about what movies are good and what sucks. They always have a few American items. Such as Homer Simpson Duff beer, Dr. Pepper, Root Beer, Sprite, 7 ups, tasty BBQ sauce, and Ben and Jerry ice cream….but Benn and Jerry you can find at Subway and some big chain stores. This is all I notice so far. But it is funny when they do have new stuff one lady in particular always tell me “we have some American items you might be interesting in” with a big smile on her face for me to ask her “really, where at”, lol.
The day was nice and John was happy and that was my goal. It is not always what you may have in your pockets or in the bank. It is what you have in your heart and showing your motivational creativity that counts.
