Birthday Present
I have been with my boy friends for 2 years. His birthday is coming up May 13th and I have 3 ideas. He doesnt know I have been saving money, so he doesnt think I will be getting him anything. My ideas are: A new weed eater. We have an acre and a half lot and he has complained for 2 years that he can't keep the one he has running and he gets so frustrated. A power washer. He has complained that our house siding needs washed and our deck needs power washed and restained. We are remodeling our deck this spring. A new gas grill. He loves to cook out, and the grill he has now is falling apart. The grill he wants is like $200 to $300 dollars, and I can't afford that. I have searched online and found one for $100, but it isn't what he wants, so I don't know if I should get it or wait until he can't get the one he wants. What do you all think?

    I have known my boy friend for two years. His birthday is coming up on May 13th, and I have three ideas. He doesn't know I have been saving money, so he doesn't think I will be getting him anything. One of my ideas is a new weed eater. We have an acre-and-a-half lot, and he has complained for two years that he can't keep the weed eater he has running. He gets so frustrated. Another idea is a power washer. He has complained that our house's siding needs to be washed and our deck needs to be power washed and re-stained. We are remodeling our deck this spring so a power washer would really help. My third idea is new gas grill. He loves to cook out, but the grill he has now is falling apart. The grill he wants is about $200 to $300 dollars, and I can't afford that. I have searched online and found one for $100, but it isn't what he wants, so I don't know if I should get it or wait until he can't get the one he wants. What do you all think?

    The only other question is have is this: Do you and your boy friend live in the same house? Usually that doesn't happen unless someone's parents have gone away or something!

    Let me know if you have questions.
