It went fine. I had a small panic attack hearing those giant doors and smelling the soap there. It's the same hospital we were in NICU in.... it was stressful going back. But Morgan did great. He is such a perceptive almost one year old. We will have results next week.

Would any of y'all be interested in these? They are from the Happy Planner. I didn't use them but they may have a pencil scribble or two from a Chirpy.

Re: Planner Talk...

Hhhmn tempting. I wonder if I can Frankenstein them into the one I'm using.

I was watching a video where someone did something like that. Yes, I have been watching planner youtube videos.

I was watching one and she started dropping the f bomb. Why would you need to go there in a planner video?!

I hate that smell. I never understood why people hated the smell of hospitals until I had my own experience with the smell.

Re: Planner Talk...

I had a t shirt I covered my face with the last time I was hospitalized. I still shudder from it.

Ok so back to planners for a minute. Went back to Staples for something unrelated and found a whole new section of planners which was new. They had some I would of considered but I'm just going to forge ahead with what I have.

That was annoying.

Re: Planner Talk...

So I don't homeschool, so I'm sure my planner is different than what you are looking for, but I have one of those mini binders from Staples. They're like the size of a half sheet of regular letter paper. I buy day timer inserts - they come with extra holes punched for the different binder options, but 2 of the holes fit these binders. I also have the 2-hole punch made to fit those binders, so I can print extra pages. I organize monthly, not weekly, since I don't have a lot going on. Each month has a 2 page spread calendar (day timer, but I've seen free printables online), one page for monthly goals, to-dos, phone calls to make, errands to run, etc. I made this page myself and print for each month. Each month gets 3 main goals at the top of that page, then there's room to list "must do," "should do", "if I have time", and "remember for some other month". That way I can write stuff down and have it organized, even though half of it never gets done and gets bumped along to the next month. Next page is more details for the 3 main goals, where I can list exactly what I want to get done. Example: For August, one of my main goals is freezer food for baby. On the second page, it's more like: defrost freezer, reorganize, create plan/grocery list for big fix day, fix food, make freezer inventory list. Blah blah blah. After that comes 4 or 5 pages which are weekly meal plan and grocery oages,so I can pop these pages out and run to the store with them or leave them lay on the kitchen counter. Every 3 months is a page reminding me to do some of the less frequent tasks around home, like fertilize trees, groom dogs, move and sweep under couches.

Anyway, I really like the binder plan because I can totally customize it to exactly what I'm using or needing right now. Also, Staples has all sorts of neet things to fit those binders like plastic pockets, tab pages, and dividers and things.

Re: Planner Talk...

Ooooo I want to see a picture! Are you using the Arc system with the plastic rings?

I like how you've organized your To Do list. I think breaking it down like that makes it less overwhelming.

I have customized a few pages in my planner.

1 page is an index so I can find information quickly.

1 page is a running expense list for each month and budget categories.

1 page is just an over view of budget.

That's all I can think of at the moment.

One more: I usually have a carry over page for dates or apointments that go past my current calendar.

Re: Planner Talk...

That is a GREAT idea with a carry over page! I'm going to have to start doing that. I have been just making tiny notes in the back of mine when stuff goes past my planer dates, but I like your idea way better.

I don't have a planner but this binder style is what I was thinking of recommending. Easy to customize with different sections for different activities if you wish - different style pages. It sounds prefect
