A Bad Year for Birthdays

Maybe it's age, maybe it's stress, but this year has been disappointing for a couple of reasons: first, I never seem to write any posts on this blog. That's a shame, but it's not a particularly devastating problem. The tragedy is that I've been forgetting birthdays. Even when I do remember, it's too late to get a message to anyone in time. So I'm writing this by way of apology to everyone I've missed.
Last year (and in years past) I had the advantage of software that tracked important dates for me. I never missed an important occasion. But then my PC crashed, and with it, my special never-forget-a-birthday program. Month after month, I remember that I've forgotten - something, but I can't recall what it is.
I need a vacation, a simpler life, or another date-tracking program. Until then, I'm at the mercy of my own aging brain. So I guess I should just admit that I need a little, no - a lot of help staying ahead of these things. Either that, or I'll keep writing posts like this one. Not because I like doing it, but because I'll forget that I already wrote about forgetting.
