Both my boyfriend and I have birthdays in July, 12 days apart to be exact, although he is two years older than me. This year for his birthday, I took him yesterday when we did not have the skids on a mountain horse back ride. He has not been on a horse in about 10+ years, but used to have a horse and love to ride. It was so much fun and now we are talking about in the fall doing a half a day right at the same ranch to see all the leaves change. His actual birthday is this week and I have a few gifts to give him and am taking him and the skids out to dinner on the actual day.
As for mine, he is taking me to the beach for 3 days! I am very excited especially since it will just be the two of us. The trip we took in January, we took the skids with us, and don't get me wrong we had a great time, but I am thrilled to get away with just him especially since it is my birthday.
Currently we are waiting the 21 day period that his ex and her lawyer have to respond to his settlement offer. If they do not, then my bf goes in front of the judge, he signs off, and it is all over. We have been waiting since June 18th, so far, they have not responded at all, so I am crossing my fingers, they don't and this can just be all done and over with, without any back and forth nonsense, but I am not going to be too optimistic as they still have some time that they could respond.
Due to this gray area of not having a court order, my bf told the BM that he was going away for a few days and gave her the dates and told her flat out if she wants to have them at all that weekend, she would have to take them at this time on Friday and pick up this time Monday morning if not then they were coming with him. She got back to him that she took those days off and now we get to have a couple get away So crossing my fingers that things can continue to go my way for a change because I have felt like this whole divorce process has been nothing, but bad news every time and there is an opportunity for perhaps some positive news!
