I have a motto. “Worry about today – today”. And I live by it. I literally wake up every day – look at what is going on for the day – and plot my attack accordingly. I don’t even keep a calendar I just look on the school, swim team and soccer team websites and figure out what is going on. I rarely rely on carpools and for the most part get my kids where they need to be. Early. (Have I mentioned I am OCD about being early).
This summer was starting to feel a little tricky so I splurged at Target and bought a calendar. I know that I could easily track events on my iphone but I really felt the need to see the entire summer at a glance. I also bought my very own pencils that the kids can’t use. I was so proud.
I spent an afternoon on websites and reading saved emails to jot everything down. I felt so organized. Almost like a grown up.
Today I left it lying on my kitchen calendar next to a cup of coffee and this is what happened:
I have to say I am pretty glad I didn’t put all my appointments into my iphone. I think flying by the seat of my pants was easier.
