Tasks & Calendar- electronic &/or physical AAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!
I feel like I will never figure this out!!!! For my calendar/planner- -I make my own bullet journal of sorts…. I call it my brain. -I use frixion pens so I can color coordinate and not panic when plans change. -I use the planner for appointments and tasks as well as memory keeping and cleaning tracking. *Problem is- if I forget it (like every day) and perhaps even more critical, don’t get to look at it because someone somewhere needs something from me….. I feel defeated! It’s not a big deal until it’s every FREAKIN DAY and then I just feel crappy and like a crappy person. -Neurotypical (hubs) in my life doesn’t get why I get so upset when I’m interrupted during my morning attempt at a routine. For routine being, “don’t leave the bathroom until I get myself ready for the day, teeth, meds, face, clothes, sunscreen…. And then I like to have caffeine and look through my day. The dog always interrupts like he’s a dog or something and next thing I know it’s dark out and I’ve been doing stuff all day but not my preplanned routines nor anything else I needed to do. IT IS EXHAUSTING!!!! I mean, I’m 43 yo woman, empty nesting for the first time and a hubs who travels weeks at a time, sometimes months at a time….. when am I going to figure this crap out?!?!?? 😭 Thought I would vent to people whom I think may get it. Looking for encouragement I suppose.
