I'm usually itching for the first of the month so I can turn my calendar. I love putting away the old month and flipping to a new picture. I love it. I also like to get a visual of how the days are laid out for the month. Maybe take a look at what numbers correspond with the weekends. It helps me to get oriented. I feel much more peace in my life when I do this.
I woke up this morning, and realized I hadn't updated my calendars yet. It was a weird feeling. Kind of like panic. For some reason, they still haven't been turned. This is strange, not only because I love to turn the calendars, but because I have been thinking about ordering my 2009 Far Side. I have been getting The Far Side mini wall calendar for about 4 years now, and have no intention of changing. So, with all this thinking about calendars, you would think I would think to turn them.
"Them?!" you ask?
Well, yes, actually.
I have four wall calendars in my room. One on the way out of my room, one by my desk, one by my mirror, and one by my bed. They are of temples, The Far Side, a custom number by Tara, and a free one I got at Miner's Hardware.
But that darn Miner's Hardware one fell behind my bed last night. It's done this before. I was too lazy to dig it out for about 10 days, and those were some of the craziest inner turmoil mornings. I would wake up, look for the date on my calendar, see nothing but wall, and get a mild anxiety attack.
I don't understand all this, I just live with it.
