I started today out much better than I started my honey's birthday back in February. I didn't wake up cranky, I didn't forget to say "Happy Father's Day", and I bought him a gift. I'm with one of those guys that "doesn't do holidays". He thinks every holiday is a commercialized ploy to make people buy things. (**Rolls eyes**) He, however, never takes back the gifts we buy for him..LOL
Holidays may not be a big deal to him, but they are to me. I think that there are good reasons to celebrate holidays - and don't always have to be about buying gifts. I will admit that Mother's Day and Father's Day aren't huge celebratory occasions in my house - but something nice is always done.
Last weekend, Steve (my honey) and I went and had tattoos together. It was a late Mother's Day gift for me, and an early Father's Day gift for him. I enjoyed doing that together - but I still wanted to do something small for him today. So, I got up this morning and I'm currently cooking a healthy quiche for breakfast. I'm also cooking dinner tonight - so that he can have the "day off". One of my closest friends was awesome, like she always is, and bought Steve a nifty skewer set for the grill. I bought him a Barbeque Bible to go along with it. Steve LOVES to cook, and grill, so the gifts were perfect for him. The added bonus is that the kids and I can benefit from the fabulous new creations he'll be making on the grill..LOL
In regards to my own dad - today makes me a little sad. A couple of years ago, it was decided that I wouldn't buy gifts for my own parents. The main reason was because I tended to have more money during Mother's Day - but was a little short on Father's Day. I felt that it was unfair - so I cut them both off. I really hate it because this year, things are a little better for us financially - and I really would like to do something special for them both. I love my parents very much - but my father and I have a very close bond. My mom is more like a "best friend" and my dad is - well, my dad...LOL I think that this year I will find something that I can give to both of them...and from now on, I'm going to lift the "no gift rule". I just hate not being able to buy gifts for them.
Anways, enough with my own personal babbling. I was a bad girl and didn't go running this morning. I was up at 7:30, but it was already over 80 degrees outside!! That's really nothing compared to the temperatures that I do bootcamp in - but I chickened out. It just means that I will get a small jog in on the treadmill this afternoon, and work on some more weights. I'm getting excited about yoga class in the morning - my stomach is feeling much better so I'm hoping that the stretching I do in yoga will be a help to getting it even more recovered.
Well, that's it for me today...everyone enjoy the holiday. :)
Till next time. ;)
