My wedding anniversary was April 8th, and I didn't think about it at all. Like in totally forgot about it. At church this morning they were asking for updated contact information. My wedding date was listed, after my name and address etc. I looked at that date, said "huh" to myself and scribbled over that puppy with my pencil. Scribbled it into oblivion even.

I knew the day would come when I wouldn't feel sad about my anniversary, I really didn't believe I would completely forget about it though. Huh, Who'd a thunk it?

Isn't that a great realization?? I even forgot my first anniversary after DDay and it was only 6 weeks later, still lots of contact with the pos, now xpos. The only reason it came to mind was that one DS *insisted* on talking with me *that day*, which made me question it to myself. I thought he had a problem he needed to talk about that weekend.

Part of figuring out why was to look at the calendar. It took a while, but the date finally stood out as the reason. He was worried about me and didn't want me to spend the day alone, so wanted to talk to me. I was totally upbeat during our talk and it wasn't an act. I hope that came across to him.

Finding what life could have been....... Why didn't I see it?

WOOWHOO! I've always been terrible with dates so I've had a few pass me by. I remember months but not the dates without looking them up. I don't look them up.

I may have reached a point where I'd piss on him if he was on fire.... eventually!!

Holy crap, this post made me realize that mine was three weeks ago on March 28. I literally just remembered when I read this!

Yes, I think that is a huge sign of healing!
