I felt very important today, as I purchased something for myself that was not a) cookies, b) Dr. Pepper, or c) toilet paper. Movin’ on up, yo!
It’s been a few months since I re-entered the working world (kind of….from home. In my pajamas. Writing stuff), but I quickly learned that I was a bit lacking in the organization area with all of my emails and browser tabs and OH LOOK SOMETHING SHINY!
Yes, those are construction paper organizational tools. Basically I make a list of the events/reviews I need to write, then organize them Monday through Friday or beyond (although construction paper calendar often does NOT allow for the next week. It’s stingy like that.). I do the construction paper system because a) it makes for a colorful and cheery workplace, b) it’s soft, and remember in middle school when you used to write on a whole stack of paper because it made your pen feel nice? and c) I’m 5. And also, yes, I know my handwriting is a disgrace.
However, the colorful loose leaf paper system is dangerous. They tended to disappear from time to time, and they often got tagged by the local gangs as you can see by the random scribbles. Those kids won’t touch a crayon with a 10 foot pole, but let them run wild with a pen and…well, stock up on Magic Erasers (which did you know ballpoint pens on doors are even immune to the Magic E? Consider yourself warned.)
But! Today I purchased an honest to God straight up planner, y’all. I know. I haven’t had one of these since I wore actual pants to work.
Isn’t she pretty? Obviously she’s a she, being reddish with flowers and such. And I just noticed it says “organizeHER” on it. Meh. That may have dissuaded me from buying it had I seen it in the store.
So now I’m all organized and in order and on top of things and stuff. Or I will be once I stop blogging and start writing things in my planner. I may even remember to take my kids to the doctor when they have an appointment. If only I could remember to make the appointment.
And now, because I think this is a blog about my kids, I leave you with ridiculous cuteness.
