1- Planning Day! Well, planning half-day. I’m trying out one of the Organize 365 Workbox planning days (took the plunge + bought a box & Planning Day access)! Though I kind of envision my Work Box being converted to a Life Box (ie, work and the rest). I just do not have THAT many paper documents I need to collect for work. We will see if I can make it work! I’m excited!
(I took today as a day off so I could spend it planning my work . . . oh well. I’m sure I will enjoy it! And it’s only half a day, anyway.)
2- TWO great podcast eps:
Freakonomics: Will Work from Home Work Forever? Currently I WFH most Tues / Thurs / Fri unless it’s a call week (when obviously I’m at work daily). However, I think I’m going to shift to At Work MWF because I feel like I need one ‘in person’ GME day especially once we can hold more live meetings. I think that’s a nice balance!
3- Planner hijinks. I am doing what is probably my 10th planner move since the pandemic. I know. I did not used to have this issue. I did last ~5 months in the Wonderland but as I mentioned I’m just tired of writing in tiny ball-point letters on the Tomoe River paper.
I am moving into an hourly spiral bound 7 x 9 Erin Condren Life Planner for July and I’m honestly hoping it will be my main (only?) weekly planner for the next 12 months. IE, where my hard landscape schedule AND goals/to-do lists will live. The paper is truly heavenly. It even smells heavenly. Yes, I’m weird.
4- I hate packing. Fun but little known fact. Especially when I have to pack the kids, too!! We are going on a local weekend getaway to the Keys (should be beach-centric + we are staying in our own villa). The kids are SOOO excited about the prospect of any travel. This will be an interesting test for us as our last family trip was almost 2 years ago when G was basically a BABY! I’m hoping it will be easier and more fun though I suspect we’ll reach our true family travel sweet spot in about 2-3 years. (Just in time to deal with adolescents who may not WANT to hang out as a family anymore, right!? . . . but I will optimistically assume that might not happen).
5- Fun album: I am probably not the “target audience” for this album being very far from Gen Z but . . . I like it anyway. And my kids did too, though G&C laughed every time she used bad words. (Hearing curse words = low on my list of parental concerns. Very low.)
