The Usual


Hi guys,

I woke up in a bit of a fog today, but it may have been because my nasal spray ran out (apparently, I have allergies now) or because I had tea instead of coffee this morning.

Regardless, I did my usual pre-babysitting routine of stair climber and yogurt bowl…

And then I took my boys to the park for a bit.  The hot weather is back, but it’s that breezy late August type of weather that signifies the last days of summer so I don’t mind it too much.  After the park, I ate a jam sandwich and a banana out of my purse and entertained the older guy while the younger one was sleeping.  He got a tent for his birthday last week, so we played a game where we pretended we were asleep (not my idea, I promise).  Needless to say, it was an easy day for me:)

After babysitting, I went in search of a new planner for work.  I have a leather one that I love, but the insert is a monthly calendar and I feel like I should switch to a daily calendar given how busy my schedule is going to become.  I was hoping to find a planner that had both the monthly and daily view, but couldn’t find one.  I guess I’ll check staples tomorrow?  I also went to CVS for nasal spray and toothpaste (exciting, I know).  The flu shot ads are already up, which means winter is just around the corner…

Sorry for the lack of pictures or exciting news.  I promise to be more entertaining by the weekend. I’m off to go find a recipe for dinner and straighten up my desk.

    If you’re into ridiculous prints (I shamelessly admit that I am), the Lilly Pulitzer have the monthly and weekly pages (with spaces for each day). Personally, I’m holding out for a myAgenda.

      Oh man, I just looked online and you’re right, it’s perfect! If only it wasn’t $24.95…

    RE: A Planner
    You might want to wait and see if a specific kind of plan book is provided/required where you do your school psychologist internship. You are right that you will need an hourly format or blocks for class periods.
