This past week I actually had someone convince me it was Friday for several hours. The problem was it wasn’t Friday. It was THURSDAY!
With everything going on & the lack of sleep, it is incredibly easy to lose track of time. Days seem like hours sometimes. Sometimes hours seem like days.
Just the way life is.
Still I need to be able to stay on top of it. Organization to the rescue!
Starters… a new planner. My one now runs out at the end of this month (um which is actually just a couple of days from now!) so time to find another.
Got lucky & found a great one at 50% off regular price. Ended up tossing in the page a day calendar to keep on the night stand to see each morning since it was also 50% off. Books-a-million has their calendars (wall, planners, small, big, seemed to be all types!) on sale for 50% off then I discovered at the register when you buy two they give you a free 2013 Book Lover’s page a day calender for free. Really awesome part is it has coupons inside too. SCORE. Not sure where that one is going but I will use it somewhere.
I can’t even start to track the days I have wondered half way through the day, “Did I take my medicine today?”. Traveling always sets me off being able to easily remember. So I invested in a pill caddy. Yes one of those plastic boxes labeled with the days of the week. Of course I didn’t get the senior style, had to have my sparkle!
Another plan is to take notes more. Either on the phone, or in notebooks I can have nearby at all times. Pen & paper can be a stressed girl’s best friend! No more forgetting what it was I needed at the store or who I needed to email when I got home. Just going to be better with the lists. At least til life calms down some.
Tempted to get those Days of the Week undies, but I think I will stop for now. Baxter agrees!
