For the past few years, I had made family calendars for both of my families (birth, in-law) in which all the members of the families' birthdays are listed, as well as anniversaries. And for each month, the pictures of everyone having a birthday/anniversary are on the facing page of the calendar. I find that it makes it easy to remember whose birthday is coming up when you see a big picture of them as you turn the calendar to the next month.
This year, I only did one for my birth family. Too many of the in-laws never got their family's pictures back to me.
I had the calendars printed in late January (I never get them done in time) and shipped off to each of my family members.
BUT I CAN'T FIND MY OWN.
And yes, it is April. I realize it's April, late April, four and a half months into the year, and I still have no calendar. Because I know there are at least one or two more copies of that dang calendar somewhere in my house. So I refuse to go out and buy a new calendar after all the work I put into making the family one. But it is driving me NUTS that I never know what day it is. Or can't write my appointments somewhere really obvious and visual.
Thank heavens for my iPhone. Wait.....now where did that iPhone go??
