Well, I didn't really sneak out... but I left work early today. There was a big organizational picnic that closed down just about everything, so instead of going to the picnic we (my boyfriend and I, we work together) went to the gym. After the gym it was home to shower, and we grabbed some lunch.
Then it was time for some fun! Today is my boyfriend's birthday... and since his favorite place to be is the gun range, that's where we went after lunch. We got to shoot two of his new "toys" and I took one of mine along too. We went to a new range and it was MUCH nicer than the one that we usually go to, but we weren't too sure about the people that run the place. While chatting about their "family" membership, my boyfriend asked what was considered a family. The guy asked if we lived together, yes... then he asked how long we've lived together, 5 years... then he told us that he considers that a family and since he's the owner he can make those kinds of decisions. I find it hilarious when people feel the need to talk themselves up like that. We might have to give the place one more try before we form a complete opinion. *lol*
Oh, and I think I might have won back my title as the worst girlfriend ever this year. A few years ago, when I was organizing the family reunion for the first time and I was super stressed... I won the worst girlfriend ever award by forgetting my boyfriend's birthday. I think I won the title back today by giving him a crumpled up mess of a birthday card. I put the card in my backpack that I carry back and forth to work... in a compartment where it would be safe. This morning when I went to get it out... it was a crumpled mess. It was bad enough that I seriously considered not giving it to him at all. Instead, I sat the pathetic card on his computer for him with the hope that all the mushy words inside the crumpled mess would count for something! When I came out of the bedroom he was reading it and laughing... with a "WTF happened to my card?" look on his face. I told him about how it got crumpled... and he pulled out the "Well at least you remembered this year..." It's a good thing I love him!! For his birthday, I bought him an iPod nano for the gym and an iTunes card... but he got them early.
Edited to add pictures of the card... when I first found it, it was smooshed like an accordion from the top to the bottom. I think I flattened it out pretty good considering. My boyfriend just read this blog and keeps looking at the pathetic card, laughing hysterically. He did say "It is a nice card..." in between laughs though. *lol*
