Tomorrow will be my brothers 27th birthday. My mom is making him a cake and putting little things on it that pertain to his job and the schools that he attended. Everyone is so exceited about tomorrow, except me. Don’t get me wrong, I love my brother. It’s the other things that seem to be bothering me. For my birthday this year, no one acknowledged it like they do for him. I know that may sound petty, but you have to understand my family. They are not the type who make a big deal out of anything. Sometimes I just feel left out. I received no cards, no gifts, and no cake. My grandmother has been calling my mom to make sure that my brother will be around so that she can give him his gift. She couldn’t even send me a card. I am use to getting the shaft if you will. Dh loves me and try’s to do things for me, but he is not much better when it comes to things like that. He never gets me anything for my birthday. I have to say that he did get me an anniversary gift this year though. It was the first time in 15 years! He always says that he never has the time to go and buy me anything. It’s not about material things, it’s about being acknowledged for the important things. I always try to do that for my family. Maybe I am just expecting too much. I just want to go to bed and not get out of it for days.
On a better note. I found out that I had won something this morning. It is the first time that I have EVER won anything in my life. I was and still am so happy. Thanks CC. 🙂
