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!
