Do you have a Desk Calendar? Even though I hardly use the Desk Calendar, I will always have a Brand New one sitting on my Desk on the first day of every year. (It's more for decoration purpose) Since I hardly use it, my Desk Calendar is also hardly up-to-date. I Always Forget to Flip over to the New Month. My eyes happened to be looking in the direction of my Desk Calendar a while ago and I realized that I haven't Flipped my Calendar for 5 months. My Desk Calendar was showing the month of May just now. How about you? Do you Always Forget to Flip your Desk Calendar like me?

Nyahaha! Oh yes I do. I tend to forget. I only get to flip it when I need to look at the date and see that it's 1 or two months outdated haha. I probably ignore it most of the time because my cellphone and watch has a calendar, not to mention my pc. Hehe. So how are you, my friend? I've been away for quite some time.

Yea. We are more reliant on gadgets to tell us time. I'm good except that I fell down yesterday and the nerves on my right foot hurt. I think I pulled the nerves. How are you?

Ouch. How is it now? Have you taken the necessary measures to prevent any swelling or complications? Please take care of yourself all the time. I'm okay, I just lack sleep. Haha.

I too dont have a desk calender. Instead I use one that is on the wall and in single page shows all the months so there is no need to flip.

Hi,there,poohgal, For me ,I will forget to flip my desk Calendar even if I have the calendar right on my desk ..hehe,Actually,I do not have the calendar with me as my cellphone is enough for me to use .You know what ,most of the time I won't remember the right date ,seems I am not so sensitive to the numbers,that's why I always forget my friends or my parents' birthday which makes others so upset;-(a kind of bad memory in my personality ..have to make some changes ... Have a nice day;-)

Oh dear.. then you have no choice but to set reminders or write down those important dates. I can remember birthdays well but I have a bad sense of days. I always lose track of the dates when I'm busy. Hmm.. I also can't remember the date today.

Flip? oh I am a flip ha ha I just look at our calendar and it is still on September. I usually remember to flip it because me and the kids are always looking at it to ask them what is the date today, but now, oh we have been so busy that we forgot our usual routine of asking the date today

It's a good way to teach kids to understand the months and the days.

This often happens to me and in a typical month I will normally realise I should have turned it over half a month ago. On occasions I have really forgotten and have left it a few months before i've realised. Nowadays my colleagues at work notice before I do and often change it for me...even when it's changed I hardly even notice it's there. Think I only ever use it when I want to organize some time off work

I don't have a desk callendar but I do have a callendar in my room at home. And, yes, I do remember to flip the pages. I used to use the callendar in my office PC but now I've forgotten how to get at it and I couldn't care less.

I don't own a desk calendar. I just got one on my laptop. It's part of Windows sidebar and I love it! It automatically keeps track of the dates for me. I used to have a wall calendar but I always forgot to flip it so my dates sometimes got mixed up.. :(

I rely more on my mobile phone and laptop. That's why I tend to neglect my 'desk calendar'.

It had been long time I never used a desk calendar. I often check through hand phone to know about the day and date. I don't have a desk calendar on my table. I find it's easier to check through cell phone than paper calendar or desk calendar. Thus,I don't have the problem for forgetting to flip the desk calendar.

Hi shui tong, The first thing that comes to my mind is that you might not have the most tidy of all desks. In the organization of messiness, one tends not to notice most things. Mine is at October. I flipped it on the first day of October. Granted there are time I flip it late but I don't think it would be as late as 5 months months. Time flies, doesn't it?

I don't have a desk calendar but I have one big calendar hanging on the wall and now that you mentioned I take a peek and my calendar is late 3 months, I never noticed that before, I don't usually take a look on what is the date today on the calendar, I rely on my laptop for that. Thanks for making this post, now I have to pause mylotting and go stand up anf fix my calendar. LOL

Our calendar is in a most odd place really,it is pinned at the back of the kitchen door!so then often we will forget that it is there lol and go looking for the diary!but we never remember to turn the pages over at the end of each month,a major failing,sometimes lol im struggling to think what day we are on,and need to take a look at the newspaper to check!But I was looking in the local shops,and there are many 2009 calendars in stock already,and the young couple who live next door to my mother make their own calendars too,they sell them in aid of the town hospital funds,which is rather good of them.But im sad to tell you I am a skinflint and will wait until they are reduced in the shops befotre I buy mine !!

We are both guilty of 'neglecting' our calendars. My desk calendars are usually given to me free. They are either given to me by friends or I get them from my company. Desk calendars seem to be a common year end gift in my country.
