I'm an organizer, not a mom

I'm one of those organizer freaks. I may appear to be scattered brained, but I really have it all together and organized. You will just have to trust me on this one.

Not only am I an organizer, I'm also a writer. No, not a talented money making writer. I'm a person that has to write things down so I don't forget. I like to have a pocket calendar where I can write down everything. Basically, if an event, appointment, due date, or grocery item is not written in my calendar I will not be there.

I get this from my mom. She's a writer too.

Today, I stumbled across the perfect planner/calender. Here are the pros for this planner...

*The outside and inside were cute, but not too girly.
*It had plenty of space for writing notes, but not too much space where it's wasted space.
*There is space for a weekly Grocery & To Do List.
*It comes with cute useful stickers to mark events, appointments, or birthdays on the calendar.
*It was the perfect size for me. Not too small, not overly huge. It would fit in any of my purses.

It was perfect!

I'm sure you are wondering why I did not purchase this perfect planner? Well, I was going to until I flipped it over to the cover. The name of the perfect planner was, The Mom Planner.

The cover had a picture of a soccer type mom with two kids running after her. AHH! I was so bummed. I couldn't possible purchase this planner. Dang you married/mom people. You guys ruin everything!!!! I just wanted a simple pocket calender with cute stickers.

Fast forward two hours after my discovery. I was still thinking about the perfect planner.

I finally decided I was not going to stop thinking about the planner. I knew what must be done. So, I went and purchased The Mom Planner. Yup, you read that right. OK Chick, young single girl, is now the proud owner of a Mom Planner.

Please, stop laughing.

If you don't stop laughing, I won't use a sticker for your birthday day!

well I was going to suggest that you simply recover the organizer. If it has what works for you, who cares what the name on it says?

I hope it works out for you...I too am a write it down kind of gal!

This is the best post. And I'm not so sure she's the soccer Mom. More like the head of the PTA and Lucille Ball's best friend.

Ha ha ha.... just don't bring it out at dates!

It's pretty cool though, I love that sort of thing too.

You can always leave the planner open and it won't be a reminder that it's a "mom planner"... hehe, a good planner is a good planner though!
