Lord. You know those days where you wake up thinking it’s going to be a great day and then you get a reminder text for an appointment you forgot you’d scheduled and what was supposed to be a nice planned out day turns chaotic as you have to rethink the whole of it to make it all fit together right.
Yep. Today’s that day. The time I thought I had this morning to work on writing suddenly got cut down to less than half of what I’d planned and I can feel my insides getting all bunched up. And to add to that, my youngest has got a terrible case of the super wiggles this morning and that just multiple the chaos I’m already feeling.
Now I know what you’re thinking. It’s not that big of a deal, right. Just rearrange your day and get it done. And for somebody who’s way better at time management that I am, that would be easy. But to me, keeping a calendar goes against everything about how I’m put together and something about having appointments on said calendar makes me anxious. I’m super selfish with my time and I don’t want to have to use it up going to the dang dentist, you know?
I’ve gone back and forth between using a hardcopy paper calendar and using my phone to keep up with appointments, but I can’t decide which one works better. Writing an appointment down is way faster and more practical to me, but then it doesn’t help if I don’t actually LOOK at the calendar. I know, I know. #FirstWorldProblems
So I’m asking ya’ll for help. How do you keep up with all the things you’re supposed to do? Do you do paper or digital? And do you write/enter everything in? I haven’t been blocking time out on the calendar for things like writing, because *appointment anxiety*, but maybe I should? Do you block off time for things that you want to do just like you would for things you need to do?
I’m up for suggestions peeps. I need some help!
