I Hate Surprises
Even when the surprise isn't for me. I was so excited that I finally thought of something to get Dave for his birthday/father's day this year. He has a poster of the Nebraska football stadium that he loves. We have been talking about getting it framed since before we got married. See I stripped his house of all bachelor related things. Pictures could no longer be hung with push pins and a Nebraska flag hanging over the couch didn't cut it. I also took out his sailboat shower curtain in his bathroom and put up a flower one. The Nebraska shower curtain in the other one was replaced with dragon flies. Flowers needed to be planted and a welcome mat placed by the door. I basically barfed girl all over the place. But, I always said I liked the picture of the football stadium and we should hang it up. But not with push pins. So a few weeks ago I took it and got it framed. Today I picked it up and hid it. But I made sure to show Samuel where I hid it. Then I said it was a surprise for Daddy. But it was killing me. I kept trying to get Samuel to accidentally show Daddy his present and Samuel kept saying no! All I could think about was the stupid picture and how I couldn't handle it being right there in the house. Dave kept asking me what was wrong and I would say nothing. But it wasn't true. There was something wrong, I had a surprise and it wasn't that I was pregnant this time! A half hour later I pulled out the picture and gave it to him. I was so relieved, but then very sad because now I have nothing to give him on Father's Day or his Birthday. See I hate surprises.
