I do not like surprises. My husband and family know this. In fact, I can go to great lengths ruining a surprise, so as not to be surprised. Obviously, this behavior is rooted in deep, pathological events that I will not even venture to go into at this moment!
So, I KNEW that my Andy was throwing me a not-surprise party today! My family, friends and neighbors coming over to celebrate my 50th -- I am elated. The plan was for my friend Lynne to take me away for a couple of hours this afternoon so that Andy could get ready.
Little did I know!!
When I walked in the house, there was my father sitting on the couch!!!!! I just cried in disbelief and joy.
I was so surprised. Maybe surprises are not so bad.
Happy Easter Everyone~
