Here’s the thing, I’ve always hated having my birthday in January. Come on, we all know that January in Utah is the worst month ever. Christmas is over; Winter has settled in; it is cold and YUCKY outside; there are no major holidays, etc. I could make the list longer, but you catch my drift. Needless to say, I have a January birthday and so does my hubby. Even though we just bought presents for each other, we make it work.
I had an epiphany today as I was out and about. I went out and about to see what deals I could score on the after-Christmas sales (or really to see what was left from right after Christmas). I deliberately went out in search of a bargain. You see, I love a good bargain. If I don’t have to pay full price for something, it totally makes my day. It sometimes makes me chuckle to think about all the suckers out there paying full price; when if they would just wait a little while or do some research they could find a good/better deal.
It struck me: when else during the year can you find such amazing sales? After Christmas, or January, really is the best time to score a deal. So, when I thought about it, I realized how fitting it is that my birthday fall in January. I guess it’s not so bad . . . . I just don’t want any of my children to grow up hating their birthday in January, so everybody cross your fingers that I make it into February :-)!
