11 Days left of my youth...

It's the first of February... 11 days until I turn 30. 

Steve told me last night that he hasn't planned anything to celebrate.  I held back tears at the moment but today I'm really hurt and upset.  I started talking to him about this last summer, that this birthday is a really big deal for me and I didn't want him to let it slide by without doing something special, having a party etc.  I know work is difficult and taking a toll on him but it's just one day.  How hard is it to order a cake and invite some people over?  When he turned 30 I made a huge fuss.  I don't even know what to say or do about it now.  I don't think it's fair or remotely appropriate for me to have to plan my own birthday celebration.

I would be pretty annoyed too. I mean, you set the expectation both with your example and with your words... what more did he want?

However, as someone who's always, always, every year had to plan my own birthday party/outing/whatever... I guess there are just some of us who get forgotten. :(

Eh, it's just a thing, you know? It was always irrespective of who (or if) I was dating, too. Weird.

but yeah, in your sitch, I'd be very annoyed. You should come here and we can go on the teacups!

He's not one to tell you had didn't plan something but actually did, is he? I hope he is!

And, please - 30 is not the end of your youth!

He might try to do something like that but given the look on his face and the tone of his voice, I think he was serious.

No, I think I'm officially old. I'm the mother of two, I'm about to get a minivan and soon I'll be 30.

I'm 33, love my minivan and am (well, will be soon) the mother of two. I'm NOT OLD! ;)

Is it possible that he's got something up his sleeve? I can't imagine that he'd completely let this one slide -- 30 is a big deal!!

I don't think he does. I think he's just been busy and distracted but if he seriously does let it just slide by I am going to be seriously seriously upset.

Oh Jules! That sucks. Do you want me to call him and give him a stern talking to? And wait... he's friended here in your journal so he HAS to know how disappointed you are. Bah! I wish I was closer. I would plan you something if I could!!! How about telling Steve you're flying out to L.A. to spend your bday with me and that he has to hold down the fort? ;) We'd have FUNNNNN! :)
