543 Day Writing Journey

February 31st! Day 177.

“It seems like forever since I’ve given the dogs a heartworm pill,” I said last night to the kids.

I looked at my calendar and noticed nothing for February, then my brain’s rusty wheels started turning.

“Oh no,” I said.

“What?” Sammy said.

“I had the reminder set for the 31st of every month. February doesn’t have a 31st!”

Luckily, I remembered on my own and had some heartworm pills in the pet cabinet, so I gave them to the pups this morning. (Wanda is on an annual shot which I will also get for the other dogs once they run out.)

So, if you have any reminders set for the end of the month, make sure each month has enough days to cover it.

With the way technology is, phone calendars should remind you if you normally had something set for the 31st when all the months don’t have one. Also, I wonder how many pregnancies were conceived because someone forgot to take their monthly birth control. Happy February 31st!
