A Thankful Thursday post about a daytimer! As anyone knows, I am a bit of a fanatic about organizing and, yes, somewhat, obsessive about lists. And, not too long ago…I could pretty much keep all my “lists” in my head – whether daily or long-term. Then – I started forgetting things. Too many things. And it was really upsetting my organized little life. Last year, I took the plunge and bought myself a daytimer, of sorts. It was really a small spiral-bound calendar book with some in the margin for a few “notes to self.” I am not kidding when I say this was a big step for me because I hated! admitting that my brain – my memory – needed assistance. Fast forward a year – and I was hooked. I love that little book and use it always.
So, this year, I wanted a new one. Duh. But I thought I would be thrifty and wait until January to buy one half price (I usually do this with my wall calendar…which is strictly “for looks”!) I didn’t realize they would be gone – completely sold out. I have searched all my Christian book stores for just the perfect one but I could not find any one…much less perfect. (Why the obsession with one from the book store and not just a plain black one from Target ….. I’ve no idea.)
Yesterday, I asked Hubbie if he would check one more bookstore that is way out of the way for me to go to but in his area while he is out for work. And he did. And they were totally sold out. Now, Hubbie is a chatter and he was “chatting” with the clerk about my looking for a daytimer and blah, blah – and a shopper in the store spoke up and told him about a bookstore located in a church somewhere way on another side of town.
And he drove over there. And he found one! And not just ANY calendar book – it is too cute. With much bigger daily squares (for more organizing) and spaces to jot shopping notes and daily “to get done” lists! I am in organizing heaven this morning!!
I’m tellin’ ya – that man of mine could have brought home a dozen roses and I wouldn’t have been as thrilled!
