My work bought me a planner last week. It's one of the really nice ones from FranklinCovey. I got to go to the FranklinCovey store and pick it out myself. Ah, the beauty of a company credit card. One of my co-workers went with me and we both got the same planner. The next morning, I sat at my work desk and put the planner together. It took me about an hour. I was really feeling stupid until my co-worker said it took her about 45 minutes. If I'm stupid, at least I'm not alone.
The time required to put it together was worth it - the planner is one that I feel I will get a lot out of. While I was in class this morning and the scattered, disorganized professor was rambling about something totally off-topic, I planned out the coming week in my planner for both work and personal items. It feels great having it all in one place and knowing what I need to do and when. It's a lot better than having lists made that have no real time or date of completion.
In other news, I took a plane to Victoria this weekend. I had to be there on Friday before the school closed so I could pick up some things I need for class. I couldn't leave work early enough to make the drive and get there on time so I took the commuter flight offered by Continental. It wasn't too expensive and I made it on time. I stayed at a different hotel this time and it was wonderful! I watched two good shows on TV and then went to bed. I had a king-sized bed to stretch out in and it was so nice to have all that room. But, I did miss Dear Husband and of course, my little Peanut. I will take her with me next weekend though.
I cannot wait until I am done with this class so I don't have to drive to Victoria every Saturday. It's really exhausting.
