Dates…

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. 🙂

Why?

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. 🙂

Enjoy 12.12.12!!
