Amazing to me.

What was not amazing was…

I forgot.

As I’ve been forgetting for the past 30 years.

As my son said to my hubby “why would that change now Dad?”

Well, there was one year where I didn’t forget…the son reminded me many, many times…for many, many days before.

That was a surprise for hubby.

Then there was the year when I had calendar reminders pop up every day for a month on my work and home email systems.

Still, I had to rush out the morning of the day to get the card and gift.

Oh well…it is what it is.

Hubby still thinks it’s pretty funny when he hands me my anniversary gift and I ask “What’s this for?” with that completely clueless look on my face.

Whew.  Good thing he finds it funny…I hear it’s a potential explosive situation when a spouse forgets an important date!  Repeatedly.  It can even mean death of the marriage.  LOL

English: Day of the Dead cake This is the traditional anniversary cake for Mr. and Mrs. Raccoon. When I called the bakery to make my order last week, the woman said, “Oh, yeah! I thought it was that time of the year.” It’s nice to be known by the cake you order. It’s important to note that the cake is Red Velvet, a blood-red chocolate.

  1. That is the stereotype yet I suspect it is a rumour started by all those women with good working memories that get all annoyed with people that don’t have good working memories…and ADD is prevalent in men:) oh well, as long as he finds it amusing and not insulting I’m ok:)

  2. I always thought it was the man who forgot the Anniversary. I keep it on the calendar to remind my husband but I remember it. We don’t usually do much for ours but we do remember the date although I think I forgot the number of years and was surprised when I was updating the calendar just now.
