Huge confession here:
I have quite the obsession with planners.
I love the possibilities a new planner posesses. Ah. I love the crispness. All of the neat places and slots to fill in.
Last school year I used an amazing Christian Mom planner that Nick's cousin had given me for a Mother's Day gift. I love her. Her name is Jodee and somehow she always knows how to make people's day. I shouldn't say "somehow" because I know how...it's a God thing, totally.
Anyway, I loved it but I was also using a lesson planner and between the two I felt like I was always flipping between the one and the other. Carrying them around with nothing else felt like I was going to class. Not to Panera to schedule over chai.
So this year I made my own.
Shocking, I know. I gotta tell you, it was WAY more frustrating than I thought it would be. Figuring out which goes on the front of the page and what will be on the back when you turn the page was just about enough to put me in a straitjacket. Fo' real.
Here's a little tour of my planner...come inside:
Artsy, Fartsy Mama! She even has different color schemes to use!
Motivated Mom's lists and I HIGHLY recommend them! I am such a chart and checker girl. I get joy from the satisfaction of checking off my to-do's and feeling like I am actually getting stuff done. So I printed off my sheets so I no longer have to remember to print them off!
It's the little things. Am I wrong?
I like planning for this event...gotta be prepared, right? Do you have an Ugly Sweater Party too?
Do you make your own planner too? Do you have any other ideas? I'd love to hear them!
