I Think I’m Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter

The other day I had a fleeting thought about how absolutely fantastic it would be when I get to Walmart and forget what I came for, or pull up at the bank drive thru only to realize I left the check at home, or when my son is talking non stop,or when I am trying to make some sense of the 50 million things running through my mind at any given time, that clad in my skinny jeans with my lipgloss poppin’, I could stop WHEREVER I am (spectators welcomed) and do the Wonder Woman twirl. As I’m twirling my wrist cuffs would emit super powers to magically exonerate each task on my to do list, and even quiet a crying or overly talkative child.

Yeah right. Fast forward to a post by Mama Locs regarding her practice of keeping a pen and paper handy to jot down the things she has to do, and another post by Being Mrs. Jones about what she would like her day to look like, I embarked on a journey to find a journal that could fit in my purse and keep my to do lists and daily plans neat, and in one place. Lo and behold I found this at my local Walmart, on clearance!

How Fitting!!
So now..let’s just hope it serves its purpose, and the pages aren’t torn out by a 4 year old, or I don’t write my name 100 times in different penmanship styles (yes, I still doodle)! Here’s to my new journal, and my first step…next week, on the journey to becoming better organized. Will you join me!!!
Do share your tried and true tips for organization, or will you be joining me in trying to organize the mind and tangible clutter in your home and life?!!

    I am a HUGE fan of a household organization notebook. I even created planner pages, grocery list/menu plans that people could download and all. Now if I could only actually USE these things to keep my OWN life organized, I would be in business, lol! I WILL be joining you in the ranks of those who need to organize!

    Hi there! I found you on "Surviving Motherhood". Looking forward to reading more.

    I find that I can only get through the day if I make a schedule of all the things I have to do and figure out how to make time for everything… but I end up with a bunch of crumbled up papers all over the place from doing this 😉
