...any idea what to buy for the guy who really needs nothing and wants nothing?
Although I am now completely prepared for the kids' upcoming birthdays, I am stumped, absolutely stumped about what to buy for Geoff's b-day. I've been thinking about this for months and am not much farther ahead than I was at the front end. He doesn't read my blog so I can post this here! :)
I'm not supposed to be talking about the fact that he is turning 50 next week - he does not want this special milestone acknowledged (some kind of mid-life crisis thing going on, I suspect), and I have been forced to promise that there will be no surprise parties, no flamingos on the lawn...absolutely nothing like that. I will honour those promises and so we will be sticking to a simple family dinner here that I will cook next week. And if you happen to see him or talk to him, please do not refer to my blog's noting of his age or talk about his upcoming milestone birthday...you'll be sending me to the doghouse!!
But I'd so love to get him a nice gift. He's a man with few hobbies. He works and drives a lot and spends time with the kids and me.
I'm thinking of adding Sirius radio capacity to his car because he has a long commute to work every day, but don't even know how to go about doing that. I'd also love to send him away for a weekend somewhere (a quiet spiritual retreat, maybe with a round of golf thrown in) but have no idea where that would be (suggestions?). I'm open to pretty much any idea right about now.
If you have suggestions, I'm all ears!!!
