I finally figured it out. What that little scribble of junk at the bottom of my calendar day yesterday says.............
Ihop Pancake Day. See- I told you it had to be something important.
Yesterday was free pancake day at Ihop- yesterday. As in not today. As in no free pancakes for dinner today.
And no- I did not finally come to my right mind- I saw a comment on facebook about it and went to look at my calendar because I could have sworn I wrote it down so I wouldn't miss it.
Note to self- write better.
