    Default I Forgot Our Anniversary

    Yep, I'm a horrible, just a horrible wife.

    Dh and I talked about it two weeks prior and even at the beginning of the week. (last week) It was yesterday. Saturday night after midnight he kissed me, and said, "Happy Anniversary." Oh crap, I totally forgot! And he knew it as I tried to play it off like I didn't forget. I mean I really did forget! The day could have gone on as usual, if he didn't remind me. I thought only guys did this!

    We made plans to go out another day, but still. Shame, shame on me!

    It's seven years. Is this the seven year ich they talk about?

    Please tell me you've done it too? At some point? Maybe? Please?

    Good thing DH forgave me.

    Oh I did the same thing with DH's birthday last year. I knew it was coming up, and the new semester started (I'm in college) and I completely forgot! I felt so bad. DH was okay with it and we ended up going out to dinner that weekend.

    Don't be too hard on yourself.

    Sure I've done it, DH has done it, DD never even acknowledges our anniversary. No it's not the seven year itch - you are not a bad person. Cannot wait until you can laugh about it all!!

    Yep, I've done it. DH forgave me too, but he's never let me forget.

    Palooka,

    You are not a bad person, nor are you the only one.

    I have pretty much done it every year for the past 19 years. Our 19th anniversary was the 19th and after we had been awake for a couple of hours DH looked over at me (we were in the car taking DD to a scholarship test for a college) and said "Oh, happy anniversary". My response was basically, "back at ya!".

    I have done WORSE! I forgot my husband's BIRTHDAY! He never said a WORD until WEEKS later (hard to deny it that far past!).

    Sorry to hear about the forgetting part, but you NEVER should have admitted it! Should of said, "Yeah, I know; just didn't want to EMBARRASS you and make a big deal out of it. We'll go out to a special celebration NEXT weekend. So, where's MY present though?"

    The day after hubby and I were married (20 years ago!), I was writing the date of our wedding in the lovely photo album I received as a gift... Only I wrote down the current date, instead of the wedding date. Hubby was looking over my shoulder. "What day did we get married???" I looked down, realized I had written the wrong date (though in lovely script penmanship) and started laughing.

    He started laughing too and said "Now you can never get mad at me if I forget our anniversary, cause you forgot the day within one day!!!"

    Don't sweat it. Heck, 19 is an off anniversary anyway.

    Don't worry about forgetting, it happens and life gets in the way.
    For the first 3 years we were married, I kept trying to celebrate our anniversary a month early. I'd give DH a card and he'd just laugh. Now, I write it in my calendar so I won't celebrate the wrong month.

    You aren't a bad wife Palooka, and I am sure he loves you to pieces. Celebrate it another day and enjoy. Hugs and Blessings to you.

    We have forgotten more than once. One year, our anniversary was on like a Monday or Tuesday, finally, on Thursday, he looks at me and says "oh yeah, happy anniversary". I was like, "when was it?"

    It happens. Don't beat yourself up too much about it. But, it is fun later on down the road. He still brings it up every few years - "remember that year that I remembered before you did" - and I come back with "yeah, but you were still late". Then, we both giggle about it.
