January 17th-Ditch your New Year's Resolution DayNO!! I've been working hard to keep up with my resolutions.I am not going to ditch them. Especially so early in the year. I mean, come on. Why bother making the resolution if you can't stick with it for more than two and a half weeks?
February 9-Clean Out your Computer DayLet's be honest here. I'm probably not ever going to participate in any kind of cleaning day. Unless it's "clean off your plate day." That I could get behind!! Yum! Cleaning out my computer seems fairly useless to me. It's all virtual junk, isn't it? I've got enough real junk staring me in the face to worry about!
February 13 (First Friday the 13th of the year)-Blame Someone Else DayI've had this talk repeatedly with my kids "Take responsibility for your actions!" I know I need to set a good example in this one, as it is one of my pet peeves. Everyone wants to pass the buck and deflect blame. Not in my house. I'm teaching my kids to own up to what they've done and accept the consequences. If you do something wrong, you'll have consequences, but if you also lie about it, you'll be in double trouble!
February 13-Get a Different Name DayNo thank you! I love my name. It's unique and it fits me perfectly. Sure, I'll never find it on a drug store key chain, but I'm okay with that. If you want to see the story of my name, you can read it here. You can also see the funny and helpful video on how to pronounce my name here.
April 17-Ex-Spouse DayI don't have one, and I hope I never do. Sure Ken annoys me. Probably about as often as I annoy him; but we made promises to each other and we plan on keeping them,. He's stuck with me!! I do see the benefit to other people though. If a relationship doesn't work out, it's best to be civil to each other (in most cases). I've seen far too many kids get tossed around because people who used to be in love suddenly can't be in the same room.
June 3-Repeat DaySeriously? Seriously!? I get enough of this at my house. In fact, we've recently instituted a rule that you can't say anything more than twice. My kids get on a kick where they say something in a sing-songy voice and then repeat it over and over again until you just want to rip out your eardrums. I feel like my whole life is a "Repeat Day" that I just can't escape.
June 26-Take Your Dog to Work DayI don't like dogs. I don't like tiny ones that yip and bounce and "would never hurt a flea" and I don't like big ones that bark and jump and sit on you. I've never liked dogs at all, so please don't bring them to work with you. That would make my day extremely uncomfortable...and smelly.
Actually, I learned that some people (less than 1% of the population) have two different colored eyes. Apparently Christopher Walken and Dan Aykroyd are two famous people with the condition!
September 6-Fight Procrastination DayI might celebrate this...some day! Not!! I do try not to procrastinate so often, but it always seems to get the best of me. I'm working on it, but I think some parts of my personality will always work that way. A Type-A I am not!
November 19-Have a Bad Day DayYou choose your attitude or your attitude chooses you. I know that there are some days that are just bad days, but I wouldn't want to choose to have a bad day. That's just asking for it, in my opinion. OF course, this holiday was apparently conceived in order to shake things up a bit, but that's just not how I operate.
I hope you have a wonderful day. And if you celebrate any of these holidays, I'd love to hear why!
