“Month of Me” is a little ol’ wild and crazy concept: In October, the month I celebrate my 40th birthday, I will do a whole slew of things that I love. Just because. You can read the kick-off post here.
Hubby: Sweetheart, it’s your 40th. You should have a party. How about I organize a party for you.
Me: Uh, remember, I don’t do fun.
Hubby: But, it’s your 40th.
Me: I’m having an entire “Month of Me,” so it’s not like I’m depriving myself or anything.
Hubby: Oh yeah. But are you sure?
Hubby: Okay, well, while I’m away camping this weekend, why don’t you think about it.
Me: But I said I was sure.
Hubby: If you gave me a list of names, we could have a cocktail party here.
Me: I don’t like adult parties.
Hubby: But it’s your 40th.
Me: I prefer kid’s parties. You book a place, you show up with a cake, there is an activity, a host to herd people around, and then after 2 hours, it’s all done and everyone goes home.
Hubby: *sigh* Okay, well, just think about it while I’m away, will you?
Me: Okay, I will.
Hubby: So, did you think about the party thing?
Me: It’s all organized.
Hubby: What? I was supposed to organize it for you.
Me: Er, yeah. But it’s all organized — all done.
Hubby: Okay, what is it?
Me: You know that place I told you about for Stella’s 9th birthday party: The 4 Cats Art Studio?
Hubby: Yeah …
Me: Well, I talked to the owner Emaly and she said she’d be happy to host me and my girlfriends on a Friday night.
Hubby: Oh. Okay …
Me: It’s gonna be sooo cool! We’re all going to show up wearing sweat pants and old clothes on and have a splatter paint party!
Hubby: You know it’s your 40th, right?
Me: Don’t remind me.
