I've always had a month long celebration in my birth month, and my son's birth month. Pedicures every time it even crosses my mind!! After going through labor with him, I figure I have really earned the right to celebrate in his birth month, too! I start on the first of the month and it goes through until the very last day, and neither of us was born anywhere near the first day of the month! We just indulge ourselves....like you say....life is too short not to....it's not my fault he's not been here for the past 4-5 years ...OK, maybe it is. Honestly, I deny myself nothing 2 months out of a year. I was a hard worker, and I deserved it!!
And, I made it a policy to never work on my birthday, by hook or by crook! We had paid sick leave and accumulated vacation days. I never advertised that my day was coming, so if I suddenly developed a "health issue"...like I was sick of working and needed a break, it wasn't bizarre...and somebody got to make a bundle of extra money! Strange how I was over being "sick and tired" within a day or two! I seldom called in sick, so it worked. Refreshing!
That's a new one on me. Does it mean what I think it means??Originally Posted by Ellen;2907928;
