Another June-iversary

July 11, 2010

I’m terrible at remembering important dates. Terrible.

For years I thought my friend Mary celebrated her birthday on March 21. Several years ago, though, she finally told me it was really March 22. D’oh!

Last year, I wished my friend Alicia happy birthday on June 15 … a month too early.

Randy and I once let our anniversary pass without giving it a thought.

I’m the girl who would pray there wouldn’t be match the date to the event questions on history tests.

You get the picture. 😉

When I told Randy’s parents we’d decided on June 25 his dad said something about another day to celebrate that month.

*blank stare*

I was politely reminded they were married in June (21st) – and so was Randy’s sister (18th). It just so happens she also celebrates her birthday then (15th) as well.

I knew that. Really, I did. I just didn’t connect the dots.

Looking toward the future, I think having all of them in one month is awesome! Instead of meeting four times to celebrate, we can do it all in one day. And that’s not a crack on spending time with my soon-to-be in-laws. It just means less travel time, less money spent on dinner, and only coordinating schedules once. It’s so efficient! My Type A personality loves efficiency. 😉

My only hope is that our marriage will be as long (40+ years) and happy as his parents (and mine, but their anniversary is in August).
