The schedule of our lives is shaped by the movements of the earth, moon, and sun. In ancient Rome, a priest observed the sky and announced a new moon cycle to the king. For centuries afterward, Romans referred to the first day of each new month as Kalends (from their word calare, which means “to proclaim”). The word calendar derived from this custom.
Here we are, eleven days into the New Year, and I completely forgot to buy 2013 calendars to replace the 2012 ones I have hanging in strategic locations. Sure, I utilize my OUtlook calendar on my laptop, but I’m not sitting in front of my laptop all day every day (in spite of what the hubby thinks). I could utilize a calendar app on my phone, but there again I don’t carry my phone with me all day every day.
My sister sent us her annual photo calendar she does every year, but wherever she had it done forgot to add a hole to make it hang-able – and Princess Nagger seems to have misplaced my hole punch. I know, right?
I usually get at least one deer calendar (since I collect deer) to hang on the side of a cupboard in the kitchen, then Princess Nagger gets her own calendar that’s hung low on a different wall in the kitchen for her to make her own notations on, and I have a third calendar hanging on the basement door since it’s in a high traffic area (and near where Princess Nagger hangs her school backpack so I make school notations on that one for easy viewing).
The hubby – who is afraid of horses – faced his fears and bought Princess Nagger a horse calendar that I keep forgetting to hang up – so if you couple that with the one my sister sent (that I’ll end up hammering a nail through to punch a hole for hanging) I’m two for three on my calendar quest. Now to make myself a note to pick up that third vital deer calendar and 2013 will be set for scheduling genius.
Which brings me to this weeks question(s):
Do you use a paper calendar or electronic calendar (like on your phone or computer) – or all methods like I do?
Have a great weekend!
