A Matter of Focus

I missed an anniversary date recently.  (Fortunately, my husband remembered and got the card out in a timely manner.)

As the family historian one would think I would remember birthdays, anniversaries, etc. After all, a day rarely goes by when I don't work with dates of some sort.

My daughter quipped that maybe I should just focus on important dates for the living family members!  Ouch!
(I'm sure I'll convert her to the genealogical way of thinking one day!)

  1. Don't feel bad. The other day I talked to my sister for half an hour before remembering it was her birthday. Since I deal with dates so much in my research that it's easy to forget about other important dates in the present, I try to check the calendar each morning. Between that and a reminder program on my computer, I'm usually pretty good about important dates, but occasionally I get busy or distracted and things slip my mind.
