Happy New year and happy “2020 Calendar and Planner” day!
2019 was a great year but after halloween it felt like it went into hyper speed. It is the middle of January and we are all dazed and confused. October, November and December consisted of, what seems like, four days. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Eve. Maybe five because we also had my husband’s 40th birthday in there.
I think the hardest part were the last four weeks. Three of them, my kids were on break. We had no schedule, random play dates, parties to attend and late nights. On top of all that chaos we traveled a bit and none of us were eating or sleeping well. A 2020 calendar and planner would have been helpful. Then last week it was back to school, buying groceries, adding things to my calendar. The holiday hangover, as I call it, is no joke. I feel like I blacked out and woke up in a strange, uncomfortable place, completely unaware of how I got here.
So here I am, trying to get everyone back into a routine and get all of us feeling symbiotic again. Part of that routine is keeping my husband updated with our activities. This allows him to work stuff into his crazy schedule and so he can see to all played out. Normally I have a calendar sitting in the kitchen with high level information on. These include birthdays, events, and dogs we are watching. Side note – we own an in home dog sitting business which also requires a lot of scheduling and planning – muttsandmates.com.
So, new years came and went and I hadn’t bought a calendar. You may ask yourself, who needs to buy a calendar when you have a design file just waiting to be dusted off and created into a 2020 calendar and planner? So that’s what I did. I opened t up, adjusted all the dates and made a few small changes to the overall design.
It’s about time we all organized and you can do so on 8.5×11 or 11×17 sized paper. Now go, you better get to it and I want to hear about it!
