I am not an organized person. I really, really wish I were. It would make life so much easier. I envy people who have daily planners and actually manage to use them. I, however, always seem to have the best of intentions but little follow through.
I was blessed with the ability to remember. Growing up, I never really needed to plan ahead because I could somehow always remember what I needed to do without having it written down. But alas, I now have three children. And with the birth of each one, my ability to remember minute details seem to die just a little bit. Add to that the daily mayhem of keeping up with them and I now find myself many days struggling to remember whether or not I brushed my teeth that morning. So I am making a concerted effort to at least attempt to be more organized.
And Mead and OrganizHer have stepped up to help me out. I recevied in the mail a box filled with all manner of goodies to make sure I do not forget another birthday (my nephew’s is next week – he’ll be 10 and this will be the first time he’s ever received a card from me – that is, if I remember to put it in the mail) or school function. Or to pick up my child from school…
I have a large calendar that I’ve already filled in and hung on the wall. There is also a monthly calendar for the refridgerator in case I forget to look at the wall calendar (highly likely). I even got a weekly calendar that I plan to put on my nightstand so I can keep my work schedule in order thus hopefully eliminating the need to stay up until the wee hours of the night because I have a deadline that I forgot about.
The thing I love about these calendars is that they offer enough space for me to keep up with everyone in my family as well as plan out my meals ahead of time (another thing I never do) and even keep track of my expenses. And they’re super cute to look at! I think OrganizHer may actually be able to accomplish what no man (or woman) has accomplished before…keeping me on track.
