1. Plans for the weekend?

2. What are you wearing?

That was my problem, I had to have a calendar so big that it was impossible to carry everywhere...now it's the size of my cell phone because well, it's in my cell phone.  :)

Can I please insert "or currently lives in" to your last sentence after "might have grown up under"? Please and thank you. Because the hate fire directed at me today feels an awful lot like a big ol' green monster...

No.  You prefer to reserve your judgment for people whose grandparents availed themselves of the techie gadgets of their time.

I've tried evernote, still can't get into it but maybe I should try again.  Savcal finally turned me over to electronic calendars so maybe...

Nah....like I said I barely use my phone so I wouldn't even look at it to see the calendar. I have one in my kitchen, one right in front of me at work and then my pocket calendar if I am out. Not difficult to put things on all 3 of them if needed. I am pretty good with remembering things so I barely use my pocket calendar. </span></strong></p>

Why would I write things three times instead of just once? Talk about inefficient.

I would prefer not to have a 6' calendar on my wall at home. Not very aesthetically pleasing.  I could *not* fit everything onto a paper calendar. 

No, just the boxes are bigger and I have had them and they are not that bad. I am able to fit everything on a paper calendar even when there are a ton of things to do that day. We also all communicate every morning and during the day in case something changes. I text or facebook hubby with things.

The best part of her comment? DH left the house around 11am this morning, so he didn't even work an 8 hr day today. Ah well, you know what they say about ASSUMING...
