After a busy work week, I woke up this morning and stood there bleary at the kitchen sink, filling up the coffee pot with water for SM's morning java when I noticed that I hadn't flipped the calendar that hangs on the side of our fridge.
It's August? Already?
I mean, I know it's August. I wrote 8-1-14 all day long at work yesterday.
But it's different when you stand there and actually flip a calendar and realize another month is gone.
Do any of you keep a calendar?
I suppose they're out dated and unnecessary for some folks. All our electronic gear has the time and date plastered on it after all.
But I like having a calendar stuck to the fridge that I can write on. I've used calendars for years to remind me of all our upcoming stuff.
We get our calendar for free from our small family run pharmacy. Every December they lay out a stack of free "Take One" calendars that have each month of the year on it with a Norman Rockwell painting and advice on how to live a healthier life.
I write all our Dentist and Doctor and Vet appointments on it.
Post-op Saturdays are noted
Recycling trash can days get a big R written on them.
Migraine days get a big M.
Odd notes like "heartworm pills" or "plant onions" go on it.
I never really thought about it but I'd likely be a little lost without it.
It's also a tangible reminder of how fast time flies by.
