ITS NOT MY BIRTHDAY BUT....

Dickidoo did something very wonderful for me today.  After a short catnap after work he asked me to go and research digital cameras online.  I found one that I liked and he said 'lets go get it'.  I couldn't believe it!  I was going to wait until I got my bonus check next month to purchase a new camera.  He had his reasons, he wanted a good camera to take with us to Kentucky for Gabe's military graduation and my 5 year old Sony is on its last legs, I was threatening to duct tape the battery cover shut.  I was so excited I couldn't sit still in the truck on the way to Best Buy.

Once there we found the camera I wanted, but Steve spotted a couple digital SLR cameras, which were way out of my price range.  He just smiled and wished me a Happy Birthday and a Merry Christmas.  I picked out a Nikon and would have been happy with that, but he got me an extra battery, a 512 flashstick, a tripod, a zoom lense AND a portable Epson printer.  Good golly!  I am sooooo excited I doubt I will be able to sleep tonight!  I'm off tomorrow so you can bet I'll be outside trying out my new toy!

I remember saying last year that my husband had gotten himself a truck for my birthday.  His birthday  is this Saturday so he got me a camera for his birthday.  That man is truly unbelievable!

Merry Christmas everyone!

(and THANK YOU Dickidoo!)

I think he's paying you back for the mental anguish he caused by taking your coffee maker to work!  Congratulations and Happy Happy Birthday!

It's those little things that your husband or significant other,  does for you that makes life with them so wonderful.  

Have a safe trip to Kentucky.
