I think the hardest thing about my birthday is that it's on a Sunday. Sundays are not good for birthdays. I did take the day after my birthday off work, but I'm still not happy my birthday fell on a Sunday this year.
Basically, I don't know what to do. I have two tentative ideas:
Idea #1: A Weekend Trip to Orlando
Friday night, my brother, my mom, me (possibly my sister-in-law and nephew, as well) would go out to dinner at The Melting Pot (I'm still not sure a two-year-old could eat there...) My mom and I would leave on Saturday afternoon, check into the hotel, and hit up Sea World that evening. Sunday would entail one of the following theme parks: Islands of Adventure, Universal Studios, Disney World, or Epcot. I'm not sure which yet, but I could care less about the Harry Potter World. We would come back Monday.
The pros to this idea include a fun weekend away, where I could forget about all my school and work issues and just get away. Sea World has fun new holiday shows and I haven't been to any of the above parks in years (I've actually never been to Epcot). Also, I love staying in hotels. It's one of my favorite things.
The cons is that I have a test to study for and two papers to write, all due on Wednesday. This also means I wouldn't get the camera I've been planning on for a few months now. Plus, my mom would have to shell out a lot of money for something like this (hotel stay, gas, two tickets to the theme park, food).
Idea #2: A Low-Key Birthday
This one would entail a trip to Target for a new camera, dinner at the same place on Saturday night, and hopefully my brother coming over to watch football with me the next day. A part of me wishes for a more exciting birthday, but it's hard when your birthday falls on a Sunday.
The pros to this idea are that I get the camera that I really need, get to spend more time with my brother (and hopefully my sweet nephew!), will have plenty of time to work on my papers and study, and my mom wouldn't spend as much money.
The cons is that is feels a little lame and I just feel like I'm being selfish with this decision. My mom would have much more fun with Idea #1. She wants me to do what I want to do, but I also want her to have a good weekend as well.
What do you think, readers? Help me choose! Leave your choice in the comments! I have no idea what to do!
