Happy birthday!!

Today is Spouse's birthday. Since I am almost 8 months older than him, today he 'catches up' with me and we are now the same age (46) until December.As always, I ordered a basket of fresh cut flowers (including hydrangea, his favorite) to be delivered to his office today. He loves fresh cut flowers and I love having them delivered to his office because it makes a statement to his colleagues that gay folks aren't that different from straight folks; everyone loves flowers on their birthday.


We are not having a big birthday party for several reasons: Spouse does not like to be the center of attention, his birthday is on a Tuesday, and this weekend we will likely be in VA and unable to host a party.

I did not get him a gift. Instead, I told him he could pick out anything he wanted from the growing list of desired items he's seen recently on his beloved home shopping channels. I don't know if he'll pick the camera, mini-laptop, or something else, but I will encourage him to pick what he wants and will not offer any resistance as I usually do.

By coincidence, we made plans weeks ago to have dinner with our favorite foodies Deb & Greer tonight. I emailed them and told them today is his birthday. We're trying a new bistro that just opened recently. I went online to check their menu for Weight Watchers compatibility but the menu links didn't work, so I called the restaurant and they emailed me their new menu. I forwarded it to Spouse to show that I want to support his WW efforts this evening even though we are celebrating his birthday.

Happy birthday to my best friend and the love of my life!
