Today's word is

So today is A's birthday. 3x years old. I got her a combined bday\mother's day gift a long time ago, so I was in the clear on that. But I'd been putting off getting the card until the last minute. No, I don't know why.

So on the way to working the late shift yesterday, I stopped off and tried to get a card along with birthday cake supplies. Except that all the cards sucked ass. So I decide that...since I need eggs anyway, I'll pick it up on the way home.

I end up being really distracted at work, staying 30 minutes late, and run into traffic on the way home (bumper to bumper at 11:30PM, gotta love Chicago traffic). By the time I get to the store, I completely forget the card. What an ass.

Other random things. W is getting a lot more interactive. When A went to her book club, he frantically waved goodbye to her car. He now waves all the time.

The other day, I think when we ended up going to Great America, A hadn't eaten breakfast by the time we were in the height of the packing frenzy. She dropped something on the floor and a 'crap' fell out of her mouth. C immediately repeated it about 8 times. Thankfully he forgot about it 2 minutes later. I think it's payback for me saying 'dammit' and having to hear C say it 10 times a day for the next 3 weeks.

Happy Birthday A.
You're husband is a jamoke.

Maybe instead of blogging (on her b-day) about how you didn't get your wife a card, you should have put your butt in a car and driven to the card store?

Yeah, thanks for the advice there, it's truly appreciated. I did do that.

Yes, he did get me a card and he did make my birthday happy. He isn't a complete jamoke, he just has some jamokey tendencies.
