March Milestones

March is a big month for me.

It always is. It contains my older son’s birthday, my brother’s birthday, and mine, right in a row. It contains what was my mother’s birthday, and although she is now gone my older Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Lexie shared it with her for a short time.

My sister-in-law’s birthday is also this month. So is the anniversary of the night my husband and I met. And we’ve already celebrated the first anniversary of the day we brought home our younger Cavalier, Mystie.

One of these milestone days is also the birthday of my agent’s son. And there are less pleasant milestones, such as the anniversary of a day best left forgotten by my family. (Yes, I’m being enigmatic and intend it that way!)

Of course we have lots to remember and celebrate in other months, but March seems to be fuller in that respect, at least to me.

How about you? Do you have a particular month that seems to contain more memorable dates than the rest?

In my family, everything seemed to happen in the spring, starting with my mother's birthday (4/23); her second wedding anniversary (4/30); my younger sister's birthday (5/5--I never forgave my mother for slipping her ahead of me); Mother's Day; my birthday (5/25); and my mother's first anniversary (6/5--which is now my sister's son's birthday as well). It was one wild ride, but it did make it easier to remember. (BTW, my father's birthday was in November, but my mother divorced him and married a man whose birthday was 4/7.)

A milestone is part of a schedule of events I'm using to organize my new WIP thriller. They can be a very good organizational tool.

We have some birthdays and other milestones outside of March, Sheila, but it appears as if spring works for nearly everyone in your family. Lots of celebrations!
And I'll look forward to reading your thriller, Kathryn.

January is a busy month for our family and it's always too soon after the holidays.

Happy Birthday Linda!

We had some happy events in January, too, Janie, but the family members celebrating them are unfortunately gone now.
And thanks!
