My New Toy

So today while I was at work, I got an email from my husband, telling me that he was having a bad day...he had a headache, the kids weren't getting along, and to top it all off, our biggest and most beloved fish - Gill - had jumped out of the aquarium and died on the living room floor while Jeff was out at the store with David today... So I was feeling kinda sad and was a little worried about what I was gonna be in for once I got home....

I walked up to my house after work and unlocked the front door, walked into the living room and looked at the fish tank........and Gill was there....swimming around as usual.................. and I started to wonder if I was losing my mind.......! I think I stood there and stared at him for about 30 seconds before I finally walked through the living room and panicked when I realized my house was dark and very quiet - I did not know where my family was, and I really started to freak out for a second - this was getting very bizzare. But then I walked into the hallway and looked into Samantha's room and found Jeff, David & Samantha standing in her room holding a pizza and a paper bag of chicken fingers....and they yelled "surprise!"... I was VERY relieved, and VERY confused. So we walked into the kitchen and I expressed my confusion about why the hell Jeff told me that Gill died when he was really perfectly fine -- WHAT WAS THE POINT OF THAT?? And he said well, he hoped he could find a way to make it up to me... and then he walked into the living room and picked up a carrying case that looked suspiciously like a LAPTOP CASE! I GOT MY BIRTHDAY GIFT!!!!! It's a beautiful HP Pavilion laptop computer, and I am so excited, as you can see.... I have to get up in four & a half hours and I'm still on this thing. It even has this adorable little pink & silver optical mouse to go with it so I don't have to screw around with that little finger pad on the laptop itself.... and it's black....and pretty... and I love it. hahaha. Our five year old computer fatally crashed ON my birthday back in July and I have been hoping for a laptop ever since, but I never expected today to be the day. He had me totally snowed. He saved up for this thing and he really did an amazing job of picking a perfect one for me, and keeping it a secret from everyone in the process. Is he awesome or what???!? THANKS AGAIN BABE, I LOVE YOU!!!
