Mommy Brain Strikes Again

I have to admit that I missed my 2nd Blog Anniversary yesterday.  I was catching up on reading genealogy blogs in Feedly this afternoon when I saw my blog listed in the Daily Blogging Beat.  I could not help but laughing because Mommy Brain has struck again.   This is not the first anniversary I have missed.

This past November we were lucky to go to Maui on vacation.  One evening I was sitting at a luau with my kids, mother-in-law, sister-in-law, and sister-in-law’s mother-in-law (did you have to read that twice?).  We were having a fun girls night out.  As we were talking to the newlyweds across the table from us when it suddenly occurred to me, “Haha! Today is my 5 year wedding anniversary and we both forgot!”  I quickly texted my wonderful hubby a message of love.

My kids are the best thing to ever happen so a pesky thing like mommy brain doesn’t bother me.  Knowing I have a problem with remembering things has forced me to find ways to help myself out.  I have a bunch of alarms on my phone so I don’t forget to pick daughter #1 up from school, take her to dance class, forget items for share day, etc. I also have created Google calendars for important dates such as birthdays and anniversaries.  I added a new event today – my blogiversary!  Hopefully next year will be more successful in remembering that I have accomplished the goal of writing for another entire year!

Thanks for reading my adventures in genealogy.  Cheers to another year!
