Because I promised.

I would much rather celebrate Look Up at the Sky Day today, but since I promised to let you know, it is Ex-Spouse Day.   I’ve never been married, so I don’t have anyone to celebrate and I’m not going to celebrate my ex-boyfriends because this is not that day. But, for those of you, who have taken that blissful walk down the aisle and lived to regret it or at least change your mind, today is your day.

Now, if you have a great relationship with your ex, you may actually call and thank them for being who they are, even though you’re better apart than you were together.  If you have an okay relationship with your ex or only still know them because of the kids.  I think fond thoughts and appreciation quietly to yourself will suffice.  If you have a horrible ex who you would have rather killed than divorced, were it a legal option, your celebration may involve a voodoo doll and repentance.

When I get married, I hope to never have to celebrate this holiday, but I’m curious to know how you are celebrating today.  Let me know in the comment section below.  And, remember while you are celebrating them, they may be celebrating you.

I’ll be looking up at the sky.



Absolutely Incredible Kid Day

Most parents will tell you their kids are amazing and most kids probably are.  They’re also cute,aggressive-1748701_1280 even when they glare at you, instead of responding, in the grocery store when you say, “Hi!”   Well, today is the day to celebrate your little crumb snatcher.  It’s Absolutely Amazing Kid Day!

Rather than gloat at the office or annoy every passerby with the 250 pictures of your young prodigy on your cell phone, you should write your kid a note telling them why you think they’re amazing.  They will love it! Even if the most impressive thing they can do is shoot a 45-foot snot rocket.  That’s amazing in my book.

If you don’t have children, ytongues-1031219_1280ou’re someone’s child, so celebrate yourself, silently in your head (aloud will seem cocky and annoying).  Or, you can send kind thoughts to your niece, nephew, little cousin, Godchild.  Surely, there is a child in your life somewhere.



Today is not the day to celebrate your baby goat.   Have fun and holiday on my friends.
