The lost months

I have issues remember things on, in, or about August and September. (Apparently, I also forgot to blog for most of August.)

Seriously. I can't remember what number corresponds with those months (5, easy, May, 10, easy, October) and I literally have to count them out to remember that August and September are 8 and 9. I also have a terrible time remembering dates in those months, particularly birthdays. I'm really good at remembering birthdays in any other month, but if you were born in August or September, I'm just going to apologize now, because I'm going to forget. I might remember that you were born in August or September, but I'll have no idea on the day. Or maybe I could guess within three days on either side...

I don't know what it is about those months, but they just don't stick for me. Anybody else feel this way about August and September? Or any other months? Or am I completely off my rocker? (Don't answer that.)

I have no trouble with August :) However November seems to be tough for me.

Maybe it's the start of school...maybe you just always tried to block that out? :)

My birthday is in August, so I have no trouble remembering it...actually, I have the opposite problem -- I think I know (and remember) every birthday in August, but the rest of the year gets fuzzy.

Did you forget to send your Grandpa a birthday card in August?
