This Saturday my sister and I are taking my Dad to see a taping of the Bill Maher show at Madison Square Garden as a birthday gift. His birthday was on November 4th.
The outing has me thinking about my own birthday which is next week. Mr. Man has repeatedly asked me what I want to do. Other than dinner I don’t know what I want to do. Sad because I am making a point to take off the two days AFTER my birthday…I should have something planned.
Instead I am at a loss.
I tend to be very low key with birthday celebrations. I don’t like a lot of fuss. In past years I have spent it alone, with family, or friends. There is ONE thing that I try to do each year…I try to do something special for myself.
The tradition started when I got my passport when I was 23, a year after my Mom died. She had been pushing me to get one for a while.
One year I bought a silver Tiffany & Co rope bracelet.
Then it was a Brazilian Wax the year after that.
It was a tattoo four years ago.
I’ve bought a ridiculously expensive bottle of perfume before that.
This year I was thinking of going on a trip…but my passport has since expired………..
I think I know what I want to do for my birthday…
Yeah…I’m weird like that…applying for a passport on my birthday would be a totally acceptable gift to me from me 🙂
Do you have any birthday traditions? How do you like to celebrate your born day?
Until next time,
