Pen and Paper Girl

It's ironic. I love my smart phone...have it with me most of the day...most of the time. I love my laptop and am on it a lot...I love my iPad and use it quite a bit...yet still I have an appointment book. I have a notebook I write all my work notes in. I have a fat notebook with dividers for notes and paperwork for committees I sit on or chair.

This is a look at my calendar/appointment book for this month. I am very particular...my datebooks (whatever you call yours) MUST be a "Month-at-a-Glance" and I write in certain colors on certain days. I'm anal. I also don't PEN anything in until the day of...I don't like to see things crossed out or the use of white -out on my calendar so until the morning of, things remain in pencil.

Hello...my name is anal retentive. Nice to meet you.

  4. That's too funny, I'm kind of the same way! I enjoy using a planner rather than my calandar on my macbook or iPad..also obsessed with using different colored pens to stay organized!! xo

  5. I like to think that I'm a laid back crunchy granola sort, but I have a similar calendar. It's color coded month at a glance mom calendar with a spot for everyone and their activities. It's hung up in the kitchen. I used to keep a smaller identical one in my purse. Things sometimes got confused. Now I use the smart phone to snap a photo of the thing and refer back to it.

  6. Oh my gosh, I'm the same way! My Blackberry never leaves my hand, but I have to write down EVERYTHING in my planner! I'm a little OCD, I guess haha!
