The love of my life...
this fabulous little thing that I take everywhere I go! It's called the Mom Agenda and I am certain that God himself had a hand in creating this wonderful product. To call it a calendar is to say that the ocean has a little water in it. It is the best organizing my life tool that I have found in a long time. I am in my third year with Mom Agenda and that is after at least 15 years living in search of the perfect 'calendar' for my needs - I am VERY picky! Last year I had the lime green, the year before a hot pink, this year I went with the leopard print - hubby actually complained that it wasn't bright enough (imagine!)- he said he liked the green because it was easy t find - a greater truth has never ben told!
There is of course a month at a glance 2 page spread for each month followed by a week at a glance 2 page spread - the is the real God-send! It looks a lot like the family planner below (which I also have and I keep posted on the door to the garage so no one has an excuse for no knowing what's going on - especially hubby!).
Anyway the great thing is that there is a separate section for each person in the family - Mom goes on top of course, then I have the children in order from oldest to youngest with hubby at the bottom (I could say that it's because he's our foundation - sounds great, huh?) but really it's because most of his stuff is at work and doesn't affect our daily schedule, so I just need the stuff that is outside of work time but doesn't include the entire family - stuff for all of us just goes in my section at the top!
At the bottom I can do my meal planning (dinners really) and I keep track of birthdays - I write them in red at the very bottom - my bday code color!!). The Mom Agenda has a ton of other really fabulous stuff in in including a removable address/phone book section and more clever organizational sections that I try to use also, but honestly if all it has was the month and week at a glance sections I'd still be toting it around! It costs about $40 which seems like a lot for a calendar (well, but it is, but you get what you pay for with this one!) but if you are like me, you can't live without your calendar (I have tried the Blackberry thing - it's not for me, I have to write stuff down), I carry it with me every where every day and this is the only one that has EVER held up to the wear and tear of my life! Just to give credit where credit is due, you can get yours at www.momagenda.com or search their site for stores near you - I did buy mine locally for the same price as on the website!
So here's my shout out to my beloved Mom Agenda! I love you!!!!
