And the Worst Wife of the Year Award Goes to...

Yours truly.

Yesterday was like any other day.  I woke up in a panic to get 2 hours worth of stuff done in 45 minutes.  I was in the kitchen, making coffee and trying to publish my blog post when Dan walked downstairs and said he needed a good chunk of change for a health procedure.

"What!?!  Why didn't you tell me about this earlier.  I don't have the budget set up for that this  month!"  

Keep in mind I hadn't had my coffee yet.  

He gave me a wounded look and after a little banter back and forth I realized that he obviously didn't want to spend that money any more than I did, so I apologized, gave him the moola, and kissed him goodbye.  

Thirty minutes later I was drying my hair, thinking about what I would make for dinner.   Why didn't I have dinner planned for tonight?   I thought.  

I think we might have had other plans...

Crap!

Today is Dan's birthday!

So, not only did I not tell my favorite baby daddy happy birthday, I also yelled at him before he left to go to work.  

Yep - world's worst wife.  

I immediately called him in a panic, trying to get him to forgive me.  

"Forgive you for what?" he asked.

"For forgetting your birthday."

"Oh, today is my birthday isn't it?  I guess I forgot too."

Sigh.

Here is the post from Dan's birthday last year.  (When I was a good wife and remembered it.  I like reading posts from that time because I was pregeers and didn't know it!)

Eats

Pictures didn't happen yesterday morning.  I was still in shock when I was packing my lunch.  

Breakfast: cottage cheese and crushed pineapple

Lunch: leftover sweet and sour chicken (1)

Snacks: hard boiled eggs, clementines, Greek yogurt, and popcorn (scattered throughout the day)

Dinner - just like last year, we ordered Thai for Dan's birthday.  I tried something new off the menu - chicken garpow (6) served over brown rice  I made at home.

This was absolutely delicious and I will not hesitate to order it again.  The sweet basil combined with the thai chili flavor is amazing.  

Exercise

Abby, Ina, and I went on a 2ish mile walk (+2).

It started out very relaxing, but pushing that stroller up those hills can be a pretty good workout.  When we arrived home, Ina continued her workout with some crunches.

She is hardcore.

  1. Aww..you poor thing. I'm sure he doesn't agree that your the worst wife of the year. :) Happy Belated Birthday to Dan!

  2. Oh girl, cut yourself some slack! Things have been pretty crazy for you. It sounds like he did. ;-) One of my fave Thai dishes is Pad See Eiw. It's really hard for me to try something new when I know what I like.

  3. Don't be too hard on yourself. It's tough having 3 full time jobs (mom and wife count)!! Five months from now, I hope I still know my own name. =)
