Do you ever wish you had a secretary? Or maybe you DO have a secretary? Lucky dog! I'm envious! I've come to the realization lately that I truly need to get a little better organized when it comes to keeping track of dates and things. Maybe it's a little like the shoemaker's children always going barefoot--since I'm someone else's secretary all day long, I just don't have the energy or inclination to be my own.
Sometime this evening, I started thinking about tomorrow and I just KNEW there was somewhere I was supposed to be. After all, the season premier of Ghost Hunters is tomorrow, so I have good reason to remember thinking I was going to miss it! So I thought, and I thought, and I went over in my mind all of my normal evening engagements, such as quilting classes, outings with friends or family, etc., and nothing "fit." I finally figured it out--it was a plan that had been mentioned but never firmed up. Isn't that funny?
Generally, I'm pretty good at simply remembering stuff like this and I haven't kept a calendar for years. I think I'm going to have to break down and get a calendar, though. There are just too many things going on over the next several months, and I can't afford to forget any of them.
While I'm thinking of dates and calendars and such, tell me this: when can one decorate the house for fall? Just about this time of the year, I start thinking about pulling out the fall stuff, even though it's 100 degrees out. So when can I? Labor Day? Does one pack up one's white shoes and decorate for fall at the same time? Because I'm sure if it looks like fall indoors, I'll feel much cooler. But maybe Labor Day is too early? Certainly before the end of September, in any event! I NEED at least a month of Halloween decorations!
Yep, I need a secretary. And a planner. And probably a decorator, or an assistant to help me decorate--that would be nice. Oh! And can I have a house cleaner too, please? Clearly I need staff. That's the first thing I'm putting on the calendar when I get one: "Hire staff." There! I'm glad THAT's settled!
