His/her...?? Wife??

Oh lala there are some things that no matter how many times I read them never click into the right vestiges of my brain. And am left wondering am I daft or something. This lady claims she wanted a wife -my grammar teacher would have beaten the living daylights out of you if you had constructed a phrase like that in her class. but then that was then. This is now. So on the day of the wedding voila!!! the groom is a woman. am toootally confused

GUESS



This can't be Guess first post. But it might be....
Tomorrow is my birthday (happy birthday to me :)), and I thought the easiest way to remember tomorrow today is to write today what I think of tomorrow. What will I do tomorrow, where will I be, who will I be with and how will I feel. I have had enough birthdays already to really be fussed too much about the thing so whatever happens sans the norm is a welcome diversion - apart from bad news of course, wouldn't want that.

I think a birthday is a day to spoil ourselves in the name of celebrating the day we were born (or so we were told) whether we actually do anything about it is sometimes determined by what other people like our friends, family and/or colleagues suggest or insist or push us to do. Take me for example, people at work think my birthday is seven months from now (since they dont have access to my file) so when its my birthday nobody comes round with "Where is the cake?" or "What did you get?" or those bland 'anyone will do' birthday cards (sigh). The most I get off my family is a birthday card/text message/phone call (delete as appropriate). I dont mind, they are all abroad, albeit different continents.

My friends (if they remember, which I very much doubt they will) send me a card and the nearest weekend we have to the day we have a party. So you see, I use my birthday as an excuse to get my friends together and catch up, otherwise everyone is always so busy with their own stuff and cant get as many of them together as I would like. Its always nice because like everyone I have different friends from different arenas. Friends I met in college, at university, from back home I knew from back when, from back home I have known here. So it makes a change to see how the people who mean something to you get along with each other, or not.

So, back to the main question. What about tomorrow? Well, apart from work, gym (debatable), home, I dont see myself doing anything different. I havent planned for the day, no one has said anything about it. I even think my boyfriend has forgotten (tssk), he was talking about what to get me for valentine's day like my birthday didnt exist. Ve Vait en zee. Having said that, when you were born five days before the V day, then what do you expect of S/O's. I get one card from my sister (a happy birthday, with happy valentine included like an afterthought and have always got one present for birthday/valentine from whomever I happened to be dating. Not fair, not fair ;(.

This year, when I reflect on how the last year has gone and what I have done, I feel blessed. So much good has happened to me that I really cant complain. Plans made came to fruition, dreams were fulfilled, stuff I was seeking was found, and God has blessed me in ways that I keep thinking that he must have a "Yes" default on my name for any of my prayers - must be how often I ask, and the persistency must have made him think "That's the only way to get her to go away". But who am I to complain. Dont get me wrong, I do get the no's as well. Many. 2002-2003 was part of my "no" years. But I think we have established a rapport now that makes it easier for me and HIM to filter stuff and get down to the nitty gritty.

So tomorrow, I suppose apart from thanking God for letting me have another year, and keeping me healthy and sane and with basic needs and more, I will not be singing from the rooftops that its my birthday. I will not even be telling anyone that doesnt know that its my birthday, and I will not be reminding anyone who forgot. I will just chill, sigh happily and do what I would have done if it was another day of the remaining 325 days of the year.

Don't be so happy, next Friday is yours. Haven't we all come from far.

M where the hell is your first post. My insistence led No files Found. Cmmon! So here is the link M
