Running Around

So I've been trying to get back in the groove of getting ready for classes and such since they start on the 28th and I realized something, I am gonna turn 24 on the 30th!

I usually am dropping hints left and right about what I want and this year, my birthday has seem to creep up on me. I did tell my folks that I wanted an iPod for my b-day, I am like the last one alive that I know that doesn't have one, besides my parents. I am a big music freak and like to listen to it when I walk the dog. The Discman that I have skips constantly and I have had it up to HERE with it!

I also have the option of going out to dinner with my parents for my birthday. I have been dating a frat guy at CSU for a little over a month now. I am wondering if I should invite him along. However, I seem to always jinx myself. There were only 2 exceptions, but most guys are gone (whether it be my doing or theirs) after they meet my rents.

My Dad also turns 53 on Thursday. He is the most impossible person to buy for. He is literally the guy who has everything he has ever wanted. So it's difficult to tell myself that all I need to get for him is a card.

What to do, what to do?

I say go for the iPod... besides, if it's only been a month of dating it's too soon to have him meet the 'rents. Leave that for after 3 months of exclusive dating.

As for your Dad, well, I'm sure he'll love just that you remembered.... a card is fine, he has everything anyway. Say something like "I'm so glad I got to have you for a Dad" or similar. He'll melt.

*warm hug* Now take a deep breath and let it out sloooowwwllyyyy....

If you like the boy, then show it and introduce him. If he can't handle the rents, sorry he's not worth it..... well maybe worth it but not in the long term so do who you must when you must . If your dad is like me and feels he has everything and needs nothing, just give him a hug, tell him you love him and take him to a movie.... its easy, simple and no talking involved...

hope that helps!

as for dad, get him his favorite food: candy (last I checked there was some great fudge in Amish country.. but that was before you were born) or chocolate (all sorts of places will ship it overnight, some of it even customized).

Dinner with the parents... wait: mine still ask about a girl they met 8 years ago. (ugly memories)

happy upcoming birthday..

I have to agree with Jim, As a dad with an older daughter, that I do not get to talk to as much as I like. I always look forward to time with her. A card/letter or a full day would be a great gift.

and yes happy birthday

I know how you feel about skipping cd's. I bought a book on cd for a road trip & I now have skips all over it where ever I hit a bump in the road. Time to start downloading digital books on the I-pod for the next road trip.

I'll be completely honest with you, I'm only here because I saw your photo and loved it. Something about your picture makes me smile every time I look at it - for that, I thank you.

As for your dad's birthday - remember that the greatest gift he's ever gotten is you! Just make sure he knows just how much you love him and he will have a very happy birthday!

Take care & I wish you the best!

Well happy belated birthday Redhead. My Son's birthday was Friday. Next is my two brother's, then mine. I can tell you from experience that a letter to your Father would be a nice touch plus the card. Knowing that you took the time to write him a letter will make the gesture more meaningful.

Peace and Love,
