LOL!  So I'm not the only one that finds himself doing fine the first 
couple months (well, after about the third day anyway) while the new year 
is still new enough to be thinking about, but then come March and April 
when he's no longer thinking about it, finds himself writing the OLD year 
again!

Not to worry /too/ much.  In another several weeks you'll finally get 
your fingers trained to write 2012, and then you'll be OK... until next 
year when it happens all over again!  Here, I'm usually about finished 
with the adjustment by mid April, tho there's been a few years where the 
problem has triggered a time or two in June, even.  But I don't recall 
having the problem after June, ever.

Unfortunately, I had a similar Y2K triggered problem... with a cycle time 
in years.  For some reason, about 2008 or so, I suddenly found myself 
writing 199... again!  The only explanation for THAT I can think of is 
that it actually TOOK that long for the novelty of writing 200... to wear 
off.  I didn't have so much problem with 201... but based on that, I 
won't, either, until 2016 or 2018.
