With the three boys' ski, hockey and school schedules plus boat shows and work I now have a calendar on the fridge, one hanging on the wall, one on my laptop and one on my phone and even though I sync and cross-reference them regularly I still can't keep all the practices, races, projects and training straight so when a seemingly unflappable mother of three pulled out this on the weekend I knew where I'm headed in 2012 - old school. Back to pen and paper. It isn't just that I have always loved paper and notebooks but having gone to school in the pre-computer age I remember things so much better when I write them down. Of course I still have my Kate Spade leopard print Filofax but I don't need the address list which is sadly out of date anymore so I think I'll keep it simple with just the planner. Now I'm ticking off the days on all my calendars until it arrives (along with Season One of Downton Abbey!)
