Long long ago in the days before smart phones and snowflakes, back when people looked up instead of down, and at a time when my hair was thicker and my waistline was thinner, I had a memory like Fort Knox.
I remembered everything.
I thought nothing of it. It was normal. I thought it would be like that forever.
It’s hard to comprehend the traitorous abandonment of one’s faculties while still swaddled in the warm embrace of youth.
But then one day, you wake up with a pain that won’t quit for 2 weeks…or longer.
And you realize that, holy crap, you can’t really see very well. How’d that happen?
And what was that you said? Speak up!
Now, I’m only in my mid-40s, and I know a lot of you are reading this and thinking, “Oh, you ain’t seen nuthin‘ yet!”
But I’m starting to understand.
And of all the failings and fizzlings both inside and out, the one that irks me the most is my slipping memory.
When I was young, I used to razz my mother for her forgetfulness.
Now I am my mother.
As far back as I can remember, she has had a calendar inside a cupboard door on which she writes everything she needs to do.
I never understood the need for such a crutch.
My brain’s rebellion happened to coincide with trying to grow a blog and a boy and trying to keep the house from falling down and the yard from turning to jungle.
Important things were slipping, and I needed a way to keep everything straight.
I needed a crutch.
Google Calendar was my crutch. I don’t think I could survive without it.
But many folks still prefer a calendar they can touch, and for you, Handan has created this beautiful free printable 2019 calendar.
So go ahead and print one out for 2019.
Just don’t forget where you put it…
