So am I the only one who thought today was memorial day?

Really all weekend Ihave been talking about today being memorial day with everyone I know and not a single person said uh Edna that is next week.

Yesterday my sister and I talked at length about why her daughter was going to school today and we both decided that maybe she was making up the inclement weather day they had and that is why she had to go to school on Memorial day.

It is a good thing William's school called this morning otherwise I would have gone about my day and never realized that today was not Memorial day.

  • My daughter thought it was, too. When I mentioned her sisters going back to school today (this was yesterday) she told me that they have the day off for Memorial Day. I told her, "Sweetie, that is another week away." She didn't believe me until she checked it out for herself on the calendar...LOL.

  • Yes, I think you are. Actually, my problem was realizing it was coming upon us so quickly. I was thinking it was still a few weeks away. This silly weather we've been having hasn't been making it feel much like the tail end of May.

  • It's funny, isn't it, how the radio commercials are already talking about Memorial Day. I get so confused. I was driving along yesterday listening to the radio talking about Friday sales and Memorial Day sales. I actually had to stop and think about what the date was. It seems like things are so rushed these days.

    Where I live we have this big 100 mile yard sale on Memorial Day weekend. I actually put something out at my curb on Friday night. Oh, well, it's there and it will stay until this weekend.

  • No. My husband thought that it was Memorial Day weekend, too, but I corrected him on Friday. I can't forget when it is. My son and his gf have prom Memorial Day weekend so I have this long list of stuff on my brain for this week.

  • Oh Edna, you have officially outed yourself lol...anyway yes I believe you are one of the few if not the only one who thought today was Memorial Day you silly goose! I wish it were here. I work for a pool installer and all 5 billion customers would like their pools installed before Memorial Day...we are slammed at work and I have the weekend off, I can't wait! Not too mention, we are opening our pool. How did the garden planting go?
