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
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.
