DairyFarmersWife's Journal, 19 February 2013

Is it bad when a day that's supposed to be special makes you realize just how unspecial you really are? I got home last night and found a card with a york peppermint patty in it. That was my birthday. 8 yr old tried to make it special. She made me a tiny clay bowl in art class. And later when it became pretty clear that my birthday was just another day she tried to get hubby to light the bathroom candle so she could sing me happy birthday so I could get my birthday wish. I didn't have the heart to do it. I was in the middle of feeding little man so I said we didn't need to do that.

I put on my barn clothes, milked cows, made dinner, did laundry, did dishes, picked up the house, and went to bed. I did buy myself the calorie counter. Even if hubby doesn't seem to think I'm anything special at least I can treat myself.

This morning he hoped I had a better day. Apparently he thought I was pissy because I had a bad day at work. All I could do was say thanks. Maybe I'm pissy because I work non-stop between a day job, the barn, the kids, and the house. Maybe it's because I feel completely unappreciated and taken advantage of. I'm not even mad. I think that's the scariest part.

Sooooo.. beginning today I'm beginning a love affair with Jillian Michaels. I found the bodymedia counter on her site for $99 and it comes with a months free subscription to her site and it's only $4 after that. So? Why not? Husband doesn't appreciate you and you're wondering if he even wants to be married anymore? Start a pretend affair with a famous fitness expert.. whose a woman. Because at this point.. who needs a man?

:( I am so sorry to hear that is how your birthday went. I am happy that you bought yourself a gift that will help you to accomplish your goals though. Your daughter sure seemed to think it was important though. I think many of us can completely relate with how you feel. I know it took my husband 7 years to do something for my birthday other then just tell me. I think you should just tell your husband why you were so upset because they really just don't get it sometimes.

Awww so sorry that your birthday was a bummer :( Yay for the body media though! I have one, I haven't been using it, not paying the $7 a month or whatever after the free trial, but it was AWESOME when I was using it. Total eye opener! And for you and your farm work I think it'll be even more valuable!!

Happy Belated Birthday. So sorry about how it went. But just think! Your new JM love affair is a new love affair with you! Congrats on your bodymedia counter and taking care of you. If you don't do it, who will? Well done. I'm proud of you.

My mind went off on this tangent where Ms. Michaels came to train you in your barn, & your hubby walks in on you & your incredibly fit trainer in workout clothes getting all sweaty together, made me giggle. I hope he learns to show his appreciation for you. Your daughter was very sweet. I'm glad you got yourself such a cool present. Happy belated birthday; I think you're special & I only know you from your journals. I think it's true that some guys don't get it!

WAIT - I am IN LOVE with Jillian Michaels, too. HMMMM....she rocked my world so I could do butt-kicks when I thought I could not. I have not seen her lately, but Spring is coming and I will be back - so watch out DFW!! By the way, HAPPY BIRTHDAY. I think you are special and wonderful.

Well doesn't that all just bite. Always has been that way for me. The things I have done for my hubby but not once in all these years has gone out of his way for me unless my mom pushed him into it. Well I hope it gets better, maybe the stress of the issues at the farm are weighing on him. It's possible? My hubby has zero excuse.
