We discussed a few options:
- Status quo. Birthday celebration on my birthday at my house. Mom talks to dad to see if that will help.
- Birthday celebration out at a restaurant, not on my birthday. Dog Christmas on another day.
- Birthday celebration at my house, not on my birthday. Dog Christmas on another day.
After sleeping on it and discussing it with DH, I suggested that we give the second option a try this year. We'll see if it sticks or not!
