True Story

My favorite father in law in the whole world calls me yesterday.

I'm excited to hear from him. "How are you doing?" I ask.
He answers, then says, "Well, I called to say Happy Birthday..."
"Oh," confused, I reply, "Well, thank you," knowing my birthday is three days away.
He continues, " ME!!"
Lightbulbs turn on, fire bells go off, now I remember. It's HIS birthday.

How embarassing! I am the world's WORST birthday rememberer. Even my sister Kristy has pulled me aside and explained that she was born ON tax day, so I should be able to remember her birthday. Aaagh! Luckily, my FIL is my favorite in the whole world for a reason. He called to give me a hard time, but it was all in good fun. Love you, dad Wilson!

Just here to attest that you are the worlds worst birthday rememberer. You sent me an e-card once in August and my birthday's in October. LOL for Roger's joke!

Hi Kimberly,

My name is Carolina and I am from Chile. I am actually studying English Pedagogy, so I use my blog to improve and share both.
It was really nice of you to write in my blog and it was very helpful. For that reason, I am very grateful.
I would like you to go and check out my blog once in a while just to make comments and read what I have to say. It seems to me that we are very alike because we love people. Maybe that's why I chose this career.
Your entry for today was really fun, hahaha, but don't remembering people's birthday does not mean you are a bad person. Sometimes, people forget to love and that is so much worse.
Well, thanks again and I hope you read my blog again.

Shelly, it's so true! I was just having a conversation with Rob about whether your birthday was in August or October, he reminded me October, and then I was trying to remember if it was on the 9th, 10th, or 11th. Do I get a hint? Please?

Kristy also reminded me that mom and dad's birthdays are both on Conference weekend, how could I forget them? Since then it has helped me, Mom's is April 5th and Dad's is Oct. 5 (I think?).

Hmmm... about birthdays. Isn't today yours? I'm pretty sure, so Happy Birthday! If not, maybe you're not the worst one about birthdays after all.
