I go all out for him. I should be the man. I know what he likes and dislikes in pretty much every facet of his life but when it comes to me, he knows nothing and does not take the time to even ask. Five years is a long time to be married and still not know what a person's likes and dislikes are to the point where you cannot go out and buy them something without asking.
What would I do? What would I say? How in the hell would I recover if he forgot such a milestone in our life especially since this is the anniversary that we have discussed, in detail, for the past few years? We have been through SO MUCH over the past 5 years that I am hoping, praying (which I do NOT pray) that he remembers. To forget would be a tragedy and just might put me over the edge that I have been teetering on now for the past few months. Mother's Day was one thing, not bringing back anything from deployment, trivial (a shot glass????) and just not doing anything at all for me for the past 2 YEARS for my birthday...I just hope he remembers OUR day.
I'm not a hard person, really. I don't ask for much. But I do ask that you remember me...when it's important.
