I should win the "Worst Wife Ever" award.

So tomorrow is my hubby's birthday, and I requested off of work today a long time ago so that we could spend some time together to celebrate. I was going to make him a cake and decorate our house, and take our son to get Daddy's present. Well, none of this is happening. :(

I have had a cough for weeks now, and last night, I was running a 104.3 fever and started getting achy all over! So, today, the day that we were supposed to do all of this great stuff together, has been spent with me being absolutely miserable and ill, and my wonderful hubby is out mowing the grass.

We are supposed to go bowling tonight with all the fam, but even that is not going as planned! My mom hurt her foot (it may be broken, but she is too stubborn to go to the doctor and get it checked out!), so she can't bowl, my mother-in-law has a horrible cold, and may not come at all, and I feel like I've been run over by a train! I can tell that the hubby is disappointed, and I feel so bad about it!

The thing that upsets me the most about this whole situation is that I ALWAYS make him a cake, and this year I was going to make one of his favorites-chocolate cheesecake. Well, it takes quite a bit of effort to make this, and with me in my current condition, what did I do? I went to the store and bought a chocolate cheesecake! Better yet-I paid $13.00 for a tiny chocolate cheesecake that doesn't even look that great! Just go ahead and slap me with the worst wife ever award, because if anyone deserves it, it is definitely me!

Doll Baby! Your husband was looking disappointed because his beloved feels bad! NOT because you couldn't go bowling! AND it's not like you were out licking the handles on shopping carts TRYING to pick up the swine flu or something! You are sick! You didn't plan it, didn't want it, didn't cause it . . . IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT!

BUT if you really want to "make it up" to your sweet hubby, plan a "!-Week-Anniversary of Your Birthday Celebration!" (If you're still dragging, then make it the "2-Week . . . " well, you get the idea!) Trust me, if you do it right, he might want to celebrate "late" every year! LOL!

Now, trust me on this! (I'm really busy right now, so don't make me have to find out where you live and come and slap some sense into you! (And having raised three girls, I've had lotsa practice, and I'm quite good at it! So be warned!)

Now, go feel better, sweet girl!
