Cory's birthday went really well!

Woke up in the morning early and Cory opened his present (fancy schmancy headphones!) and then we went to Waterfront Park so Cory could do a 5k. He hadn't run since we were in the Starlight Run last June, so now he's ultra sore. But he finished and he did pretty well, considering how much he runs. :) We were supposed to meet Mike down there, but he didn't show up, so we were a bit disappointed as we were going to have brunch with him afterwards. But it worked out pretty well, 'cause we went home for Cory to have a shower/bath and rest a little bit.

Then we went to Red Robin for a quick lunch and saw Hellboy. I'm a good wife because even though I don't want to see certain movies because of how stupid the previews look, I still go if my husband wants to, when it's his birthday. :D

After the movie, we came home and Cory fell asleep on the couch in the 20 minutes it took me to run to the store and pick up fixins for his birthday dinner (which I wasn't going to use anyway) and 2 birthday pies. It was getting close to 4, so I woke him up and tried to keep him busy (and keep him from changing into pajamas) until the surprise guests got here. At one point I glanced out the bedroom window and noticed two people getting out of a car and coming towards the stairs, which I thought were Adam and Laura, so I got all excited. But it wasn't them. Whoops. They finally got here at about 4:30 and joelseph and unbearablyjules were here a bit later, and we all chatted while the pies were baking. Mike didn't show up to the party either. (He'd called to tell me he was sick the evening before, but that he'd feel better on Sunday. Guess he was wrong.) We all went out to McMenamins and had dinner, and came back and played the Farming Game and had pie. 'Twas fun. Then I read a chapter of The Streets of Laredo for Cory, because that's what he said he wanted for his birthday. :) He told me this was his best birthday ever.

I know this feeling very well. Gus and I do the same thing, only we do it all year round. We used to do it with movie-theater movies, but now we do it with Netflix. For instance, I sat through Pootie Tang for him, and he'll sit through Copacabana for me. We do have our limits though. I did NOT make him sit through From Justin to Kelly, and he didn't make me sit through Red Dragon. :)

wtf is the Farming Game?

Ack, you watched From Justin to Kelly? Yikes!! I'm glad I'm not married to you! :D

I guess it's not so bad having to sit through someone else's movie if you get to have them sit through yours. I'm going to have to take him to see The Prince and Me or whatever. Hahahaha.

The Farming Game is a game that was invented by a guy in the Yakima Valley in Washington. Cory and his brother grew up in that area, so they had it, and it was in the Corvallis toy store when we went a couple of months ago so we bought it. It's basically Monopoly but with farms. You get to buy crops and you can harvest them at certain times and sometimes Mt St Helens erupts... that kind of thing. :) It's fun. The first time I played it was in a bar in Eugene.
