Nothing like waiting until the last minute........again

So last time I did a post about my Sweet T not being high maintenance, we ended up with a whole kitchen full of new appliances.  I really don't see that happening again, so I am going to give it another shot here. 

T is by no means high maintenance (we don't need any new appliance's) buying a store full of shit NEVER happens.  She never buys anything for herself. NEVER.  Clothes-NOPE, Make-up- My girl has natural Beauty, Shoe/FlipFlops/Sandals- No comment, my point is...she would rather not have any of that stuff and go all out for the kids, like getting clothes from this Boden catalog where the clothes are like $50 for a shirt or something like that, I don't know.

I found this thing in her panties and bra drawer, don't ask me what I was doing in really don't ask.  So this thing I found she has had for a while and I thought this would be a great gift for her birthday which is next week. 

A Memory Maker Photo Bracelet

Ok so this is the same damn thing that is sitting on my desk right now as I type and I can't figure out how to make the f-ing pictures small enough to get them into the little slots.  I found a template, and it even walks me through it, but for the love of god, I still can't figure it out. I even asked T for her help.  I told her "You do the pictures and email them to me, I will print them and fix it up"

So we will see.  She also wants a Stainless Steel Toaster to match all of the other shit in the kitchen, but jeez, have you seen how many toasters are out there?  I am not picking her out a toaster, she won't like it and she will return it.  I learned my lesson on that kind of stuff.

C2's birthday is next week and so is T's on back to back days.  Being the great parent that she is, she never cares about her bday.  She really doesn't.  I need to think of something to do that is different. Let me think,  I need to do something that is so off the wall, she will never think of it and she will be surprised and excited and I have to spend next to nothing.

One problem I have is that I wait till the last minute to do this shit.  And I am not good at keeping shit from her.  It is always hard for me to get the kids to go somewhere and do things and I am not good at getting them to do stuff at the house.  I am going to get something done though, it is my mission.

Oh man, then I have our Anniversary to plan too.  I can't believe that 10 years has passed.  She must really love me to keep me around for this long.

I have some good ideas in mind.............stay tuned.

Post edit several moments later in time:  Ok so I already had someone ask about me being in T's drawer, so let me explain......ahhh nevermind,  think what you want.

I know you said not to ask...but I feel compelled anyway, what were you doing in her underware drawer? Seriously?

In any case, I think your idea is a great one.

And as for why she has kept you's obvious to me that you love her with everything you have. Worth keeping around in my book!

Hey, buddy ... sent you an email. Send me the pics, and tell me what size you need them. I'll send you a pdf back.

I'm assuming they're not TOO personal, since you want her to wear them on her wrist!

What happened to the honesty you guys?!? I think you should totally tell the panty drawer stories!!! I agree with Arizona Mamma, it is obvious how much you love her.

I know you're afraid of getting her the wrong toaster-- what about a gift card? I know, lame, but I actually like getting gift cards. They are so practical, and I get to shop, which, like your wife, I NEVER do for myself!

Oh, and DH IS beating me in my bracket-- worse yet, he still has his "national champ" alive, while mine (Kansas) is already out. But he picked Duke-- so you can hate on him now!
