It's been one of those weeks and I can't deliver on my promise to post my Weekly Schedule.
For example, yesterday, I drove like the wind from my job site to my son's school to pick him up early for an orthodontist appointment. I had to leave Ft. Worth by 1:30 to get to his school by 2:40 to get him to the appointment by 3:00. There was so much to do at the job site, and since it is such a long drive I try and pack in as much as possible while I'm there. Feeling feverish at leaving things undone and already 10 minutes behind schedule, then making my way along the 70 miles to the school, I was just a little stressed. Thankfully, we made it JUST IN TIME! Woo hoo!
We ran into the office building, purse and backpack flying, only to see a "Closed until Tomorrow" sign on the door.
We could see the receptionist inside and we motioned to her. "Hey, what's the deal?" we mouthed, using exaggerated shrugging and pointing to our watches.
"Your appointment is TOMORROW at 3:00!" she said through the glass.
My son, G.T. turned to me and said, "GREAT. I'm going to have to make up a quiz for this, AND miss tomorrow's class at this same time. Good goin', Mom."
Actually, he was pretty nice about it, but that's what he was thinking.
You see, that's what happens when you use a crummy purse calendar in which the week starts with a Monday instead of Sunday and then you count over 3 spaces to what you THINK is Wednesday, but it is actually Thursday. It would help to look at the numbers, which I didn't do...24th, 25th, whatever. Details, details!
All of this brings me back to my Weekly Schedule, which I said I would post, but I have not created as a word document as of yet. If I had used my schedule, I would have remembered that I make appointments on Thursdays, not Wednesdays.
Oh, yeah. I'm on a roll.
