Happy Birthday Curt!!
Today is Curt's birthday. I won't tell you how old he is - but he's 358 days older than I am - so I'll always be his younger woman!! Hee hee hee. I met Curt in college, but did not fall in love with him until many years later. We have been together for over 19 years now, have an amazing daughter and a pretty good life.
I am well aware that I am not the easiest person to get along with all the time, and that I am definitely an odd duck. Curt gets me better than anyone else, friend, family, shrink that I know. As cliched as it sounds - he is my best friend, my soul mate. I can be flighty like a kite, and he's the rock that keeps me from being lost among the clouds. He is really supportive of my ideas ( my cockamamie ideas if you ask my father in law) even the ones he knows aren't going to last. ( I have surprised him with how long I've stuck with knitting)
It would be a lot harder for me to be me, if he weren't there next to me. And he isn't threatened by my incorrigible flirting. ( He knows I cant help it - it's just me)
So, for his special day, there is cranberry french toast casserole in the oven, I am taking him to HOT RODS BBQ -awesome pit BBQ , lots of classic car stuff - for lunch. Got HIM a birthday cake from Cold Stone Creamery. Couldn't figure out what to get him, he was no help 'cause he didn't want anything. So at some point next week there will be a package from NASCAR.com is all I'm saying ( Go Smoke!)
