Pity Party

Thursday, April 24, 2014

Today's my birthday. It's been terrible.

For months now, I've been pushed and prodded into doing more work, into promoting myself, into doing things that make me uncomfortable. I thought that maybe the people who have been demanding would at least show me a little appreciation on my birthday. Nope. Most of them forgot. In fact, today seemed like an after-thought to my husband.

When it comes to everyone else's birthday, I have to be the super-party planner rock star. If I don't bake them a cake, fill their car with balloons, and make them feel like the best person on the planet, then I'm a bad friend, sister, daughter, or wife.

I know there's still time for some sort of awesome surprise, but trust me, there's no awesome surprise. My husand works nights. My family hasn't even called. My friends all forgot (except those on Facebook, but I won't be seeing them in real life today). I have class tonight. So, like I said…there's no chance at all of surprises.

So, I'm just going to sit here and throw myself a pity party. Today sucks.

Also, in the future, the chances of me being the super party planner rock star are, statisically speaking, around zero.

    Awe. That sounds like my b'days. But, not to be out done, I always do something or buy something for myself that I have been wanting. Give it a try next time around and watch your spirits soar!

    Lame sauce! Might you have time to do something nice for yourself? I know it's not the same, but you deserve some pampering.


    A very happy birthday to you!

    Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes. After a bit of Facebook shaming, my husband has figured out that he dropped the ball today. Now he's frantically trying to make it up to me. *sigh*

    Oh well. Some birthdays are like this I guess.

    I know if I really want something, I need to give it to myself. From now on, throw your own party. Make reservations, call up friends and invite them over to help you eat birthday cake, buy yourself a fancy new blouse, etc. No more pity parties needed. You get what you want and everyone else gets to celebrate as well. Win-win.

    BTW, Happy Birthday To You.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your cruddy day. It's no fun to feel forgotten! I wish there was something that I could do to help make it better. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

    Also I host a fitness and accountability group on Facebook. It’s a private group where we check in, keep each other accountable and encourage one another on our journeys! Because it is private what you post in the group doesn’t show up on your regular feed. I would love for you to join us. If you would like you can either message me your email address and I can add you that way (we don’t have to be FB friends if I add you by email….. OR you can find me on Facebook and add me as a friend ( Once you add me as a friend I can add you directly to the group. I hope you join in!!
