We recently had an anniversary and neither of us remembered, nor did we remember that we missed it. How bad is that?
About five days before the anniversary, Vince said “What do you want for our anniversary?” I said something like “How about a house?” because we were in the middle of the house deal. I had loved the sellers’ bedroom furniture and they were willing to sell it but it was more than I wanted to spend but Vince had agreed to buy it so he said “The bedroom furniture can be your anniversary present.”
I was totally surprised that he remembered our anniversary . . five days early . . but he knew it was coming up in five days. I rarely forget things like that and usually remind him a few days before it.
Yesterday afternoon, I had been in the sewing room or a while and when I went back to the house, Vince said “Why didn’t you tell me Happy Anniversary on our anniversary?” Hmm . . Did I not even remember it? I said “Did you tell me Happy Anniversary on our anniversary?” We both forgot! He was watching a movie and they had said something about missing an anniversary and it made him remember. I guess if he hadn’t said anything, I would never have remembered.
At least we laughed about it. I did put it on my phone calendar but half the time, I don’t look at my phone for days.
