Works-for-Me-Wednesday: Holiday Planning
On one crazy day early in the month, I realized that I needed an easy way to look at our holiday plans. I had been sorting through various papers from school, preschool, church, and cub scouts (and on and on). I had another list of possible Christmas activities we might want to do as a family. I printed a calendar. I grabbed a pencil to write in activities. This allowed me to write in all the events that we might or might not want to go to. I decided to make it festive by putting it on some construction paper and decorating it a bit. Then, I posted it on the refrigerator. I thought to myself, "I wonder if my hubby will tease me about this." He didn't. In fact, he has told me over and over (without prompting, I might add) how helpful the calendar is to him. He even wrote a few of his own activies on there without me asking. I have tried so many calendars - from basic family planners to Google calendar online. This is working better for us than any family calendar I have ever had!
