Today is 12.12.12. A repetitive date that won’t happen again for another hundred years.
Well, that is, unless the world ends on the 21st, in 9 days. In that case, we’ve seen our last repetitive anything. 🙂 But I’m not going there, because my daughter is scheduled to travel to NYC that evening, and while I don’t believe the Mayans, I do believe in crackpots wanting to use our fear against us and do crazy things.
But I digress… 🙂
I really wanted to talk about my craziness of remembering dates. Dates I don’t really care to remember! Not the important ones! Oddball times of my life stick with me, and raise up and wave every year. It’s the goofiest thing. I can’t remember people’s birthdays to save my life… but I can remember the day I started dating a major guy in high school…Sep 18th…when I broke up with him…Oct 16th. I remember a very crucial kick-me-in-the-gut party one year on Aug 8th, when I met my ex on Dec 7th, and something I will not name on July 24th. 🙂
Probably because when I was younger I tracked everything. Everything was important, and vital, drama-filled, and life-altering, so of course I transferred data from journal to calendar to calendar for years. In my older years, I’m doing good to remember what is important from week to week. I have a list on my fridge of all my family and extended family’s birthdays and anniversaries. And then I forget to look at it and miss them. *head slap*
My anniversary is July 15th. I make sure I know that one. 🙂
