My subject is “ When was the last time you felt “left out” of something? How did you deal with it?”. It was submitted by http://followmehome.shellybean.com . Here goes:
WOW! This was a hard one. I thought and thought and thought about it. I started to get nervous… Would I ever come up with something?? I don’t usually feel left out of anything. If I want in, I just, well, go in. I have a speak before I think, leap before I look personality. LOL
Then it hit me. My birthday. Yep, my birthday. You may wonder how someone can feel left out when it’s THEIR birthday! Well, let me explain it to you.
You see, Cailey and Colin both have birthdays around mine. Cailey’s is the 23rd and Colin’s is the 31st. We usually end up having their birthday parties ON my birthday. LOL Not sure how that keeps happening…. It’s not that I mind sharing, not at all, but it would be nice to get my own cake every other year or so. And let’s face it, even 3 birthdays cakes at the same time will NOT go to waste in this house.
Now, how do I deal with it? Well, that’s simple. I don’t. I don’t say a word, I don’t do a thing. I just keep calm and eat their cakes.
It’s not like The Hubby or any of the kids read my blog, so I don’t have to worry about them feeling bad for me feeling left out. I could pretty much say ANYTHING here and they would never even know.
Next year is a big year. It has a 4 and a 0. Yep! I’ll be 04 years old! And since it’s a big one, I might just get myself a cake.
Maybe one like this -

Or maybe like this -
From – With Love and Confection
As long as it’s chocolate it will do! LOL
The Hubby made me a cake one year. I have to admit, I was scared, but it was actually very good. Another year, Joshua and Deanna made me one. They did an excellent job. There is one year I will never forget! I was turning 21 and The Hubby got me a cow cake (I love cows). We were having my party over at his buddy’s house and before I could even blow out the candles the cake was ruined. A food fight!! With my birthday cake!!!
You know, if that’s the only thing I can come up with, I feel pretty darn blessed. Let’s face it, in this world if the only thing you feel left out of is birthday cake, you’re pretty lucky.
