i was sitting here tonight making gift certificates for my nephew (the kids get so much stuff that in the last year i've decided to give them certificates to actually go do things like movies, putt putt, bowling, etc). i needed to get these together for his party on saturday.
so it's 9:30 pm and by some stroke i realize it's july 16 and it finally occurs to me that his birthday is today. i'd gotten so hung up on his party being the 19th that i'd completely forgotten the actual birthday. i immediately call my sister and tell her i'm the worst aunt ever and it was all i could do to not burst into tears right then.
god...i've been feeling so distanced from my family the last 6mos or so and i guess this just cinches it.
i feel like such a horrible jackass. how could i forget?
