I already alluded to this in one of CL's threads, but I don't want to derail her thread, so I'll make my own. I just need to vent. I know this is all on me, that the problem is mine and mine alone, but it still bothers me. Last week was our 10-year anniversary. Some of you might remember the thread I started asking for celebration ideas. I appreciated them all! Anyway, here's what went down. Our anniversary was Thursday. We knew all week that we wouldn't be able to celebrate on that day, since we had 3 appointments, including a school meeting that night. But I presented her with a nice card and .40 carat diamond earrings. Of course she adored them, but assured me we weren't going to celebrate until the weekend. She didn't have anything for me besides a quick hug & kiss. Saturday night I make reservations at a nice fancy restaurant and arrange for a sitter. We go out and have a fantastic meal, but then simply pick up the kids & return home. She was tired so we put the kids to bed and retired ourselves. The next morning we had a quicky before the kids woke up, and that concluded the anniversary celebrations. OK, maybe I'm reading too much into this, and maybe I'm being a little selfish, but I didn't even get a card. All those months of stressing over what to do to make it special, giving her elaborate gifts, and I get nothing in return. It just seems so one-sided. I love her so much, and she's such a great mom. But I just feel so neglected.
