This is me...
I feel a bit crazy... have you ever felt like you had Swiss cheese brain? Somethings stay in but others fall out and you don't ever really know which of those things is going to be important?
I feel like blaming it on old age...lol but then I don't want to offend any of my lovely, wonderful, amazing older friends out there... so I will blame it on my lack of organization.
Yes the secret is out, I am UN-organized!
Those that have known me for while know that this isn't really news. I have just been really good at keeping all the balls in the air. I am one of those people that don't keep a neat house, it's clean, just not neat. I have piles and I know what is in each one. I know which room, which stack and when I put it there. About once a month I purge those piles because I get tired of looking at them.
I can no longer keep all the balls in the air, and it's causing me some significant stress. I need a planner... or a calendar or a pda... or something. I need a place to put my stuff... one place, one that is portable that I can pull out when I am thinking about it and write in it then put away. I can't afford a black berry.
So my friends... any suggestions? Do you have something that helps you keep it all straight? something simple and easy... yet comprehensive enough to work? Am I asking for too much?
Is it completely nuts that I have come this far in life and DON'T already have system?...lol I made it through 2 kids, then 2 adoptions... almost to the age of 40 and I can't do it any more.
God knows what He's doing... I am certain He's been after me to do this for a long time, considering the stress this has caused me, but hey we have all already learned what a slow learner I am. ;o)
Thanks for your help..in advance...
