The Countdown Begins
Posted 11/18/2010 12:46:00 PM
There's this thing my husband does when we are anticipating an upcoming event. It'll go something like this. He'll ask, “What were we doing 2 weeks and 3 days ago? That's right, we were on vacation. What is 2 weeks and 3 days from now? That's right, the day we take Jarrod to school”. That's an example. He's great with numbers, he can pluck dates out of thin air just like that. At least somebody in the family has this ability! Well, this time Roger asked me a similar question on November 17th, while we were having dinner. I can't count the weeks and days in my head, and forget about going back years. Give me a calendar, though, and I can go to town! So, he reminded me that 5 weeks and 3 days ago it was Columbus Day, 5 weeks and 3 days ahead would be Christmas Eve. OK, now it's not fun anymore. Because it seems as if Columbus Day was just here. And that means Christmas will be here before you know it! I began to panic. I am so not ready, there's a lot to to, and I'm still thinking I have to get ready for Thanksgiving! But I am thankful to have a wonderful husband who can keep track of the dates, otherwise I might not be ready for any occasion! Now I have a sufficient heads up and I can start the holiday planning. But I'll leave the counting to Roger.
