PDA

pda Pictures, Images and Photos
Nope, not that kind.
Nope, not the computer kind either.

I am talking about the old school, personal desktop assistant. I have one now courtesy of Michael's job (a little white collar crime never hurt anyone). I am so happy with it. I was actually really stoked to put it up. Michael asked me to please not put it up in the house. I guess I have to agree, it is really ugly, white and looks like the plain ones they give you at your office for your desk. I am so thrilled with it though.




I like to SEE what my day/week/month has lying in store for me. I have tried the leather bound calendars, the dollar store jobbies, the computer ones, microsoft outlook, all of them and I don't seem to get organized. I always seem to be missing some activity, event, birthday, deadline etc.


I actually dream of a big board with dry erase markers where I can put all of our names (think car dealership or nurses station) and what we got going on for the week. It is difficult to manage a household and the appts, birthdays, anniversaries, parties, playgroups etc. With this new calendar I can feel the organization and timeliness oozing out of me. Yay.


Now what was on my agenda for today? Oh yeah, "BLOGGING"- check

I could use one of those, but my girls would probably want to use it to play school. Neat idea though :D

I love mine! I have this on my fridge, as ugly as it is. We check it often, with Spaghetti working 2 jobs, Dr. appt's for the tots, and my Art classes I teach, it gets a bit crazy.

My best advice is hang it where you will use it most. And we also use a different color for different people. Spaghetti's work schedule is green, my classes are pink, family events are blue...

AND thanks for stopping by today. I totally love you, because the first word I saw was fuck. I mean how many people start a comment with that word? Besides you and me. Thanks again, I will be back!

I have one on my fridge too. Yes it's not the prettiest, but hey, who cares it's my house!

Aubrey said...

LOL
It may not be the prettiest but that's not the priority when trying to get organized! I love it.

You should of been a teacher because this is the only way I function. Even with a big board, I still have missed a thing or two. Hope it continues to work out for you.

LMAO When I used to work, I would always get the pretty, classic one. I also loved that I could see who I had to call for payment. ;P I thought of getting one for my desk then putting a glass over it to protect it but with my kids, that's crazy talk. :)Have fun with yours!

i love this ugly thing! i want one too! big paper calendars with lots of room to write are scarce these days!

Carrie said...

I tried one of these, but a few times I was writing on it and accidentally wiped off appointments and crapped my pants!! I now just keep a calendar in my purse that I never look at. haha

Kendra said...

I am absolutely the same way. If its not in front of me I completely miss it. I've tried everything - even the desktop organizer that alerts you to something - but I usually just turn it off or tell it to remind me later.

Now here is a post after my OCD heart! I can so relate! I've tried a lot of different types of calendar organizing techniques. I still haven't hit the jackpot, but I think I'm getting closer to finding what works for me as a business professional AND for us as a family.
