Commence Birthday Month from Hell

If any of you reading this have a birthday in February I love you but I hate the month of your birthday. You see growing up I was the only one in my family with a birthday not in February so just a mere 1 month after Christmas I had to watch as my brothers and sister got more presents. I'm sure my sister teasing me about that didn't help the situation either. As an adult the presents thing doesn't matter but I have to turn around and by all my family presents again a month after Christmas.

So yesterday began the birthday month from hell with me and we kicked it off with a big one. My mom turned 50 yesterday. Seeing as 50 is a very big deal I have a surprise lunch party planned for this coming Sunday and she has no clue. Mom thought that the cake with us, my brother and his wife, and my baby brother was all that we were doing for her. I'm sure come Sunday she is going to regret all the pouting she has been doing for the past two weeks but I guess if that's all I got for a big birthday I would probably be sad too.

This Thursday the 4th will be another big day for us. It is my awesome sister-in-laws b-day. We have told my mom we are celebrating that on Sunday by going out to lunch but really that's her lunch. My brother however is throwing my SIL a party Friday night. Also on Thursday is Dave's best friends step daughters birthday party at Magic Mountain which we will be attending.

Moving on to Saturday we have another of Dave's friend celebrating his big 30 with a surprise party thrown by his wife. His birthday isn't until the end of the month so he should be very surprised by a party this early in the month.

Of course Sunday is the big party and then we get a little bit of a break even though I have a bunch of cousins, aunts, and uncles whose birthday fall in the middle of the month.

This brings us to the last week of the month and my most dreaded part of the month. We start off with my Sisters birthday on the 23rd. I have to make sure I mail her present out before that since she wont be coming home. Two days later on the 25th is my brother Nicks b-day and we have yet to determine how to celebrate that one. Three days after that on the 28th we will be celebrating my baby brothers birthday. Since he was born on February 29th and this isn't a leap year we choose the last day of February as his birthday. This same week Daves friend (the one with the surprise party) has his birthday and one of my best friends Shanna also has her birthday.

So that finally brings us to March and a much needed rest except for the 1st which is my other best friends birthday but she is technically a March baby so I don't give her a hard time. Needless to say it's going to be a fun filled busy month.

I don't think I knew the full extent of birthday hell you have! Wow. That's ridiculous. I have three birthdays to celebrate this month, and I thought THAT was enough. :) - tif
