And So Another Day Begins

>> Tuesday, August 05, 2008

After a little reflecting and prayer last night I was "reminded" that I really haven't been following the schedule I set for summer. In fact, we haven't been using it at all in the last 3 weeks- which is really when things began to fall apart.

My children thrive on structure. And, to be honest, so do I. I feel discombobulated when I don't have a list or a schedule and I've been flying by the seat of my pants for the past 3 weeks.

So, back to the schedule we go. I'm actually going to buy something that may not be completely necessary... I'm going to buy a new planner. Basically it will be my life in a binder. I want my envelopes in it, as well a weekly calendar and a schedule form (Franklin Covey has one that I think will work). So after gymnastics this morning we are off to the only mall in the area that has a Franklin Covey to get me organized.

I've been using Cozi, which I like, but it doesn't travel well... And I really can't justify a "smart phone" as I won't pay the extra for internet... So I'm getting a planner. Wow, that was a lot of writing for such a small bit of info, wasn't it?


What I was actually planning to share was that I was awake at 3:30am. I tried to go back to sleep... Tossed, turned, listened to a bit of hail... And finally gave in and got out of bed at 4:30am. I logged on to Hulu and watched the season premier of Psych. If you haven't see it let me just say this- get the first two seasons on DVD and prepare to laugh. Then get caught up online. Good stuff. Witty. Smart.

Thanks to everyone who sent me hugs and offers of margueritas (I'm thinking the froze drink sounds pretty good- especially if I can get a serenade from a gypsy.) Today will be much better. It has to be!

Not all the smartphones require internet. You are required to have internet service for a BlackBerry, but the Palm phones do not require internet.

I have a Palm Treo, and I have all my calendar, chore lists, to-do lists, etc, etc on there. It's a Godsend! I used to use the Franklin Covey planner, because our company pays for them for us, but I got tired of lugging around a planner all the time. They have some really neat ones though!

The only schedule I need to get back on track for is going to bed early and getting up at 7:15am. Although it hasn't been too bad this summer. I've been up around 8am pretty much every day. Now to get to bed before 1am... that's the tricky part!

I have to get back into the swing of things - when I go back to work, I'm going to have a little culture shock.

Dang! The gypsy hasn't been back, but I do still have Margaritas in the fridge. Chilled--ready and waiting for you! I've even got Margarita salt...what more could you want?

I'm anxious to check out the planner you bought. I think I have had every single kind of Franklin Covey planner there is, and I'm not even using one anymore. That reminds me, I need to get those on Craisglist...Anyway, I am so disorganized by nature (I know I have undiagnosed ADD) that I need something to keep me on track or I fall apart! Let me know how it's working for you!
