since the day my dad died. This could also be one of the reasons my emotions have been so close to the surface lately. My mom also died on 11/29/2005. My first marriage happened on 11/26/1980 and my ex's birthday was 11/30. That's a whole lot of things to have happened in a very short time and while I dont exactly celebrate the dates, they do hit me. I know I shouldnt even be aware of my first marriage or his birthday but it does leave a lasting impression. It would have been 32 years. Not that I would want it in a million years but it is a reminder every year around Thanksgiving. Also oddly, that is his parent anniversary and he married his second wife on the very same day! Talk about creepy...lol.
