I’m a little old school in that I’ve used a large calendar that hangs on my refrigerator to record appointments and mark friends and family birthdays and special events for years and years and years (and years).
Don’t get me wrong – I’m not against technology and would happily keep my calendar on my phone – IF – I had a phone that could do stuff like that. Alas, I don’t.
My secret Santa – who was my husband this year – knows this about me and so one of my gifts in the week leading up to Christmas was a perfect 2013 calendar for the fridge.
It’s a largish calendar and I had it sitting out when we got a call about a house showing (our house is on the market). In my straightening, cleaning frenzy I tucked my calendar…somewhere.
Can you guess where this is going? On January 1st I went in search of my new calendar so I could transfer birthday information from my old one and mark in some appointments I had and I couldn’t find that stinkin’ calendar anywhere! I have torn my house apart looking for it – remember it’s not small – to no avail. I have woken in the middle of the night with a thought of a new place I might have stashed it – but never there. I’m going a little crazy looking for this calendar and I’m too stubborn to just go out and buy another when I have a perfectly good one…somewhere in my house!

I feel surprisingly lost without my morning glance at what the day, week and month hold and I’ve already missed one friend’s birthday. Can forgetting to shower and wearing my clothes inside out be far behind, dear reader? Me thinks not.
Oh where, oh where are you, Calendar?
January 29, 2013 update: finally gave up on finding the calendar I carefully put away and bought a new one. My husband swears I must have thrown the first one out - but I sorta can't believe I'd do that but - who knows? - maybe I did! Certainly can't find it anywhere in my house!
