I forgot my husbands birthday

Mr HB's birthday was Sept 26th and I took him to Home Depot to pick out whatever he wanted on the weekend before. We happy birthdayed and went out to dinner but I completely forgot about it last Tuesday.

I didn't have a card or a cake. I didn't wish him Happy Birthday. I feel soooooooooo bad. I'm lower than a snake. Crappola.

Now I'm laughing because this will be held over my head for the rest of my life. No matter what he doesn't do, he'll be able to say, "Well, at least I didn't forget your birthday!".

Life as I've known it is over.

HB, don't feel bad! I forgot hubby on father's day a couple of years ago. I couldn't figure out why he wouldn't talk to me the next day & realized when we went to bed what I'd done. Even worse, I remembered my dad & got him a present & card!

Since you took him to Home Depot & all before his birthday, you technically didn't forget.

Let's just say you guys celebrated a few days early. He had a trip to his toys R us, um, I mean Home Depot, then a dinner. You should be justified enough if you ask me, well, if not you always have that little orangutan to blame it on...

That's it! The orangutan stole the card and ate the cake.

If my head weren't attached to my body I'd forget it most days!

I agree with urmaniac, it was the orangutan!

Now Jan, whenever he tries to make an issue about it, just smile sweetly and say, "If I had a quarter for every special event you forgot....." then let your voice trail off to nothing... 'cause we KNOW he's forgotten FAR more than one b'day or anny, now hasn't he?? Generally the only reason they remember at all is cause WE remind 'em!

HB, I can see why you feel bad. I would, too. Don't discount that trip to Home Depot and the nice dinner, though. If I took my husband to Home Depot, he'd be one happy camper!
