The B-Day/M-Day Combo

It was by birthday yesterday. Yes, on Mother's Day.

Now most people would not know this about me, but I am a major Birthday Diva. What can I say? I love having a day that celebrates the fact that "I" am on the earth. A day all about me? Well, heck ya...bring on the worshiping of moi. I'm worthy of celebrating. (More people should develop this philosophy if you ask me.)

ANYWAY...my big day was upstaged this year by none other than Mother's Day. WHAT! All mothers can not steal a day that is meant for having a fiesta over me. It is so wrong on so many levels.

Level number one: Laying Around Like a Slug. This year I only got ONE day to be a lazy, good-for-nothing. Most years I can milk it for my birthday and Mother's Day. Not this year. Therefore, I tried my hardest to be as lazy as possible yesterday, but still didn't feel that I achieved the true laziness that could come from two days of playing video games and sleeping on the couch. Or in other words...being a man. It's so not right.

Level number two: More gifts. Need I say more? I could usually make a haul on both days, but this year didn't receive the amount deemed worthy of a double celebration day. Okay, this is only partly true. I FELT spoiled until my younger sister came over and told me everything she had received for Mother's Day. Her gifts upstaged mine. YES...I am bitter about it. Now I don't even get the extra day to make up for it.

Level number three: The Facebook Thunder steal. Everyone got to get on their facebook pages and say "Thanks Honey, for the awesome mother's day! It was the best!" And I did too. BUT they will also get to brag one more day about their Birthdays...and I won't. Isn't Facebook solely for bragging about how your kids/husband/car/bad weather/school degree is better than everyone else's? Yeah, I thought so too. Now my extra bragging day is totally ruined.

See...even my own daughter is trying to steal my birthday thunder by blowing out MY candles. SO wrong!

There you have it. My rant over only getting one day for me is over...until of course, my birthday falls on Mother's Day again. I guess I'll go cry in my left over cake with buttercream frosting. (Man, I totally forgot to complain how everyone got breakfast in bed, and not just me. I guess I'll save it for a later posting.) So HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY you BIRTHDAY STEALING freaks! :-) Hahaha...

P.S. Don't comment how you are worse off than I am, because I will never believe you. ;-0 And I do hope you realize how sarcastic I'm being with all this--except of course the day of celebrating me, that's all real baby.


Happy Writing.

I sort of feel your pain. Not being the mother part, but my birthday is on Wednesday, so it does sometimes fall on Mother's Day. Why should my mom be celebrated on MY birthday? :)

You have the same birthday as my mother in law. But I love you anyway. (;

Oh yeah, well I . . . Ok, you're right. Your life stinks! :-)

You had my Scotch-Irish blood going, when you made the generalization about all men layzing around playing video games. I lowered my dukes when I realized you were saying the opposite of what you felt :).
Happy Birthday by the way.

Hahaha...Kristina you do feel my pain. And James, I wrote that purposefully so it could go either way. Believe what you will. :-)

I totally feel ya on this. Having a December birthday gets overshadowed by Christmas every freaking year.

Happy birthday!

WOW! I made your blog. I didn't mean to upstage you on your birthday! You better explain to Jer that he has to get you double presents when that happens. My husband always goes overboard, but a lot of my gifts I bought myself about 2 weeks ago. So really that doesn't count.
