So it has been a rough week with BM's abuse allegations, stressing out about how to tell SS about my pregnancy, and planning for SS to visit in one week. On top of it all, I came down with a nasty sinus infection and have been fighting that off since Sunday. Not to mention, finding out I was pregnant, while planned, has been an adjustment. I am feeling better after being sick and I feel more at ease (thanks to this site) about how to handle BM and SS, but regardless, I'm ready for life to slow down a little.
My birthday is next week and honestly, I thought we were just going to do something small, like dinner. It's on a week day and it is right before SS visits, so I didn't have any expectation of celebrating.
DH tells me today that he wanted to surprise me, but he knows I hate surprises, and that he invited some of our closest friends who live 2 hours away out to our place this Saturday. He even booked Top Golf and got a group reservation at a really upscale restaurant for dinner. He said he will handle all the cleaning beforehand and already ordered a cake. I am shocked. DH is usually good about planning little things for me, but this is really special.
I work from home so my social life is pretty limited and I've been telling DH for a few weeks that all I want is some time with friends. I called my Mom to tell her and she said that DH told her about it weeks ago. He's been planning this for that long.
