What Day Is It???

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??

Didn't Big Daddy print them up? Can't he do another one? I can give you my calendar for last year. Just add a day to everything! Simple!

I need to make one for ourself. I just do one for the grandparents.

I don't remember any dates. Ever.

Totally sounds like me.

I love that calendar idea with the photos. Trouble is, in my family all but a couple of photos would be crammed into June and October since that is when everyone's (including inlaws!) birthdays fall. If I start dating someone with a birthday in June or October, I will pretty much know I've met my future husband :)

I couldn't live without my calendar.

I lost my phone yeterday. The bad thing is it surprises no one.

Hope you find your calendar!
(at least by August)

I make one every year and when I get my copy it goes in my desk drawer, never to be seen again. I have totally converted to the calendar on my iPhone, when I remember to write it down at all...
