Appointments, weekends, fun times with friends. It all started to slip through the cracks. Forget about anyone other than my children’s birthdays. How did I ever remember them before? Am I a terrible friend and family member? I have stoically held on all summer and fall. Slips of paper, various calendars, the folly of using the computer to remember things when I have a stationery computer rather than a portable one. You may have noticed I have a sponsor now, Mama’s Notebooks and so the Weekly Planner has been shared with me. I tore myself away from slipper knitting to begin placing all the various activities down and now seem to have at least the next month under control. I even managed to schedule time for those pesky things like hour long runs to Staples that are necessary but seemingly impossible to squeeze in. There is also a chore rotation list which is desperately needed ’round here as well as a shopping list that I have pretended not to need for years. December is chronically overbooked and overextended as everyone elses is but, January, I got your number. Begone hundreds of slips of paper! Mama’s Notebooks is having a sale that runs through the holidays and so take a peep if you too could use a little paper management.
A tea replacement? It seems the baby isn’t overly jazzed with two cups a tea these days. And so now begins the eggnog season. Recipe here.
