And here's the why behind that statement...
The Husband and I celebrated our 29th anniversary the other day...oh wait! No, we didn't.

I talk about our anniversary.
At any rate, last night we were talking about my co-worker friend's birthday and how her family doesn't really "do" celebrations and that's why I make a big deal out of her birthday (which was today).
In the middle of the conversation The Husband stopped cold, looked at me horror stricken and whispered, "Did we forget OUR anniversary?!"
And, dammit! Yes, we did! He was worried that he alone had forgotten - but no. I had also forgotten. I remember making a mental note about it in early January. But, apparently, that mental note got stuck in a pocket somewhere, now covered in lint and was hanging out with other random bits of paper; totally forgotten. So here we were, four days after the actual event, looking at each other in disbelief.
Now, to be fair - on our actual anniversary we were dealing with The Husband's car which had broken down and had to sit in the parking lot at Home Depot until the dealership opened the next day. What a way to celebrate...
So here's something to consider if you are planning a wedding...don't get married in January. I am warning you!
After Christmas is just NOT the time to remember an anniversary (search this blog and see how many times I've forgotten about our anniversary if you need proof). After having kids, being married forever and dealing with hoopla that is Christmas, in January you are just too wiped out to think about things like celebrating an anniversary.
Next year is a big one though - someone remind me on...oh, let's say January 16th. Because it simply won't do to forget the 30th!
