I love my husband, I really do. However, he does not seem to understand the concept of gifts. For Valentine's Day he gave me a little jewelry box...that he got free after picking out his pocket watch that I said I would buy him for V-Day. He knows I am not into gifts of flowers, since they only last so long unless they are a plant. For my birthday last year he bought me a game I told him NOT to get because I didn't want it and because I knew I would never have time to play it.
Mother's Day is coming, and while he's getting wise and asking me what I want, it's not that simple. I know what I want, but I know it's not feasible right now with our budget and his schedule. What I want is 48 hours all to myself, away from the Monkey Child and the Booger Head, and maybe a chance to feel girly. I live in a house full of boys, and always have, so there are times I want to feel feminine and pretty. Of course, as a man he does not understand that, but still. How am I supposed to translate that into something he can actually do?
