Do you feel this way too? I hope you do so that I am not alone. Then again, I would hate for anyone else to feel as overwhelmed as I do half the time. It’s a daily struggle to feel like I get enough accomplished. Quite honestly, most days I feel like I have failed.
Like days when your son asks if you washed his clothes for work. You grab them out of the dirty clothes and throw them in the dryer with an extra sheet of fabric softener so they don’t stink too bad.
Mornings like this morning when you totally forget that your son was suppose to be at school early for his club meeting that is EVERY week at the SAME time.
When you have planned your week’s meals to make life easier, only to forget what you had planned because you can’t find your sheet of paper you wrote it on. So pizza night it is… again.
Your son tells you he HAS to have hand sanitizer for his music class the next day. You promise to go get it. Then promptly forget about it until he asks you the next morning where it is.
Yep – that is how life seems to be lately. Needless to say, I need to get myself better organized so I don’t forget things. I do write things down. I have lists and lists, but they are everywhere. There is no organization to them. I thought I could manage without a planner for 2013 so I didn’t buy one. Needless to say, that is not working.
Remember when I bought my 2012 planner?
If not, here is the blog post all about it. Man I loved that thing. It kept me so organized. I ended up color coding everything on the monthly pages so it was even easier to see at a glance who had what going on. I decided it is time to break down and order another one. I can’t keep forgetting things. I need to stay on top of everything better. I feel like I am letting everyone down. But mostly, I am letting myself down. That affects my whole mood. Do you keep a daily planner or organized to do system?
I do utilize my phone a lot for tasks. All of our appointments are on my phone too, but I don’t check it nearly as often as I should. I have always LOVED paper and pens, so the paper planner just works so much better for me. I ENJOY using it.
Sadly, it said it wouldn’t be here until the middle of September. I am the world’s most impatient person so this will be miserable. Worth it, but agonizing too. I hope I don’t forget anything major between now and then.
Do you use a paper organizer or your phone? I would love to hear what works best for you!
