What Day Is It?


I never know what day it is.

The sad part is I have a giant calendar hanging on the wall (that I change every day), a planner, a phone that gives me the day and date, a computer, a tablet, and a TV that tells me the day whenever I use the guide.

So, you’d think I’d know what today is.

Nope. Not at all.

I thought yesterday was Thursday. I thought tomorrow would be Saturday. I thought Tuesday was Wednesday. And, for some reason, thought today was Tuesday. Okay, I’m close. It’s the other T day.

But, in all seriousness, as a stay at home mom whose husband has a Monday-Friday job, the days run together. I know it’s the weekend because the Husband is home. I know it’s a weekday (which one I couldn’t tell you) when he’s not. While I’d like to blame Memorial Day for screwing me up, every week is like this.

Some days I give up and hope I figure it out eventually. Some days I stare at the calendar. Other days I’m asking my toddler what day it is. The funny thing is, I’m trying to teach him how to read a calendar.

I don’t know what day it is. I’ll probably never know what day it is. Don’t even ask me what today’s date is. I barely know what month it is.

What day is it?

      Haha, me too! Sometimes people are kind and see me struggling, so they tell me what day it is. Though sometimes I have to ask and they don’t know either, so I feel a little better!

    I feel like an intruder -a husband- but it’s happening to me also. I tend to ignore the feeling and keep going as if I know which day it is. Anyway, it’s not so important, isn’t?

      Oh, never an intruder! I write from the perspective of a mom, but the sad truth is, this has been my life at least since college. Probably as long as things still get done, who cares what day it is. They all end in day!
