Every year for Keith's birthday we try to do something nice, but every year it seems to turn to sh*t, like last year when we went out to eat like three times over his birthday weekend and everywhere we went to eat was lousy food. Or like the year he scheduled a colonoscopy during his birthday/vacation week, or the year he had two crowns done. I don't think he's had a good birthday in quite a few years. So, this year I found this card that I thought was incredibly appropriate, and we would go out to eat lunch, but only at a tried and true place, a restaurant of his choosing that we knew in advance would have decent food.
happened to have the day off yesterday, having gotten in from the road
late Sunday night and not being scheduled to go out again until late
last night, so it all worked out pretty well. He decided he didn't
really want to go back to work late last night so laid off for the first
time ever so he could have today off, too.
we'd go up to Tehachapi today and extend the festivities into another
lunch out, but this morning Keith sees water dripping from under the car
and it looks like the water pump is getting ready to go out. Which
probably would have happened on the way to Tehachapi, knowing our luck
with his birthday weeks in the past. He is taking the car to see if he
can get it fixed right now, so it looks like no lunch in Tehachapi
today, but at least we had a good day yesterday on his actual birthday.
Yes, if something can go wrong around the time of Keith's birthday it definitely will.
