It’s hubby’s birthday today! And he received a very timely and much desired present last night. The Chicago Stock Exchange is closed today because the NYSE is. New York doesn’t want any business transacted while it is dealing with Sandy!
Nothing, I mean NOTHING, makes my guy happier than not having to go into work.
What in the world will I do with him all day (and tomorrow for that matter because I overheard the exchange may be closed Tuesday as well)?
It is his birthday so that means we should do something fun; something he wants to do. Right? Hmmmmm…..
A movie! That’s what we’ll do. He loves popcorn (he doesn’t let me put fake butter on it though!) and the show. Maybe we’ll even see two in a row like we used to do when we were dating and newly married. But we will pay for both instead of doing the “other” thing we might have done when we were young and broke. We will pay, I promise!
[I loved being young and broke. We were tight and worked through a million things. Like vacations on the cheap; buying the condo of our dreams; eating out at great restaurants or going to two movies in a row; even buying diapers. In a lot of ways, even though things were tough, things were simpler and we were insanely happy. Does that make sense to you?]
And for his birthday dinner tonight?
Do I cook for him or take him to a great restaurant?
Be an apron only wearing chef or put on a hot outfit with black stockings to go out?
OR cook at home in hot outfit with black stockings?
I’ll have time to figure that out at the movies!
