Today is one of my closest friend’s birthday. I need to make her card because in my mind, I thought her birthday was the 12th. Now every other year I’ve gotten her birthday right. What happened between last year and this is a mystery to me, and I am feeling really foolish that I can’t remember something this important. When we talked on the phone yesterday, she was saying that her entire family was going out for dinner and I asked if it was for her mother’s birthday that was a few days ago. She said no, for my birthday. That’s the moment I broke out into a cold sweat. How do I forget a birthday and then remember it as the wrong day? Yikes, I really need to refer to the birthday calendar that I created for myself to avoid situations just like this. Naturally this isn’t the first time I’ve forgotten a birthday and I’m getting more frustrated because I created the solution, but forget to look at it. Geez, who does stuff like this?
So I’m off to make a video for a birthday card, how hard could that be? Another five or six hours from now, I should have an idea for the card at the very minimum, and possibly produced an actual card (let’s not get so far ahead of ourselves here.) Baby steps.
