What Day is It?
I don't know. I'm so lost as to what day of the week it is most of the time...I've got multiple calendars and planners to help me keep track of what I need to do, places I need to be, events going on at school and around Butler. In my kitchen alone, I have two hanging calendars, well, three if you count the Steeler schedule that's now posted on our refrigerator, and then on a dry erase board is a list of "Important Dates"--all special things happening this month: birthdays, holidays, golf tournaments, doctor appointments, etc. Then! I have a pocket size calendar to carry in my purse, along with my daily household calendar where I list all the chores that need done each specific day, with special notes highlighted for any appointments or happenings I need to be aware of, and there's the calendar on my laptop, my desktop, my tablet and my phone...I am inundated with calendars! But yet, if someone was to ask me what day it is, I'd be hard pressed to come up with an answer. Oh, I'd get it after I put a little thought into it...searched the brain a while to recall who am I packing lunches for the next day, or do I need to scour Michael's room for library books that are due back at school...And now my routine has had a wrench thrown into it since Bill's changed his work schedule this week, I'd really have to struggle to come up with the answer to what day it is. Usually he's off Sundays and Wednesdays, works late Mondays, so I don't have to pack Michael a lunch on Friday, just Bill, then no lunches get packed Saturday since everybody's home on Sunday, but I have to pack a dinner for Bill for Monday, and Tuesday I get a little break and only have to pack for Michael since Bill is off on Wednesday. Nope, not this week. Bill works late tonight, so I had to pack him a dinner last night and he's not off until Thursday, which means I have double lunches to pack today for tomorrow since he's now working Wednesday, and then he's off Saturday for his golf league's end of season tournament, so no lunches to pack on Friday...this week. I have no idea what he'll be up to next week...is it any wonder I'm lost as to what day it is? Do you know??
