It’s on the Calendar.

My resolution is to start scheduling.  Literally, I’m going to write things with a lead pencil, instead of a stylus, on a real-life, go-on-the-refrigerator, can’t be accessed from “the cloud”, paper calendar.   I could put it on the computer on a Google calendar, but it’s much more likely to happen if it’s tangible and  “in my face,” and I see it every time I go in the kitchen.  So, here are some things that are going on my 2012 schedule:

-a weekly family night (a special book, puzzle, game, craft, or Wii game)

-a weekly meal plan (plan actual dinners ahead of time to avoid the “What in the world are we going to have for dinner tonight?” question that I often ask at 5pm)

-a weekly organizing project (closet, junk drawer, pantry, garage, etc.  Just think… at the end of the year, 52 things will have been organized!)

-a monthly family movie night  (at the movies or a Redbox rental)

What are you putting on your 2012 calendar?  Share some of your 2012 resolutions.
