"We did?"

Woops! That's a big boo-boo!
I got a call from Richie's mom this week and we were talking for 20 minutes or so when she let me know that we missed their 35 year anniversary. Needless to say, I felt awful. I wanted to wring my husband's neck. I know that this sort of thing usually falls under the wife's duties, however, in these cases, I haven't always been successful. I remember my own personal stuff, but I definately get an "F" when it comes to remembering other people's stuff. I would like to say that at this very moment, I will change and do better at remembering people's birthday's/ anniversaries, but I know that won't happen. It's not that I don't care, because I do. It's just that life never stops and there are alot of people in my life. I know that if I hear ahead of time about a birthday that's coming up or an anniversary, or something of that nature, I can make arrangments to get a card or present... no problem. It's when I don't hear anything about it ahead of time, and then the day comes, and I feel like a jerk. I despise that!
When it comes to anniversaries, I think they are mostly for the husband and wife (and adult children... I know it was bad to forget Mom and Dad's 35th anniversary... there is no excuse for me in that). Oh well, I'll have to think of a way to make it up to them later.

My brothers & sisters have never done anything to celebrate my parent's anniversaries. (I usually get get them a card). On their
25th I decided to throw them a BIG surprise party and I invited people they'd been friend with throughout the years (that they hadn't seen in years). I wanted to get them a BIG gift (I was hoping some sort of vacation) from me and my 4 other siblings...but none of them were very interested!! The most anyone wanted to "donate" was $20!!! Needless to say, I ended up with about $100 to spend so I bought them a 35mm camera! woop-te-do!
Their 35th is coming up in about 3 years and I would really like to make it special..but I know it'll be totally up to me if anything is going to get planned. I seem to be the only person in my ENTIRE family who cares about celebrating things. GRRRR....
Anyhow, don't feel too bad...I think the majority of the world doesn't make big to-do's about Anniversaries.
Although since my 10th is ths hubby BETTER come through with at least SOMETHING!
