Planner anxiety

Monday, February 4, 2013


I've gotta confess...for most of 2013 I have felt as if my life is spriraling out of control. Do you know why? Because I DON'T HAVE A PLANNER. I have piles of things on my kitchen table to send out, to fill out, things to do...but I haven't done anything because I couldn't open my planner, look at a week, and see what I wanted to accomplish. Seriously. I missed my dogs birthday even (happy 6th bama!). Last week I finally ordered that beauty up there and around the time everyday the mail comes my heart starts beating fast because I think its here (not yet). But soon, my life will fall back in to place because I can write shit down....I CAN'T WAIT!!!

Hope you had a great weekend guys!

Every start of the year I have at least two planners I intend to use, but I always end up not using them at all after several months... I don't know why really. It happens all the time.

I'm a sucker for a pretty planner, as well. They always make me feel more organized - just by holding them. The one you picked is gorgeous...I cannot wait for it to arrive {for you}! :)

Ha ha.

When I worked in an office job, if I forgot my diary I might as well have just written that day off. Very unsettling, can't believe you've lasted until February without one!

Wendy said...

Lol, I get it... I need to make lists, too. That planner sure is pretty. :)

Gotta have a planner! I am so unorganized.. the type that writes sticky notes and forgets where they are. My calendar is one of those big flip calendars. Childlike I know, but I really visual and I need everything right there in front of my face otherwise I'll forget.

I find that whenever I do decide to use my planner- half the dates are rescheduled or cancelled making my planner more of a mess than my countertop.
Ugh.

Glad you're getting your planner soon! Exciting! :)

Every time I sit down to write stuff in my planner I can't remember what I needed to write and then I walk away and it all comes back to me!! I need a virtual planner that follows me around and has voice command. Is that so much to ask??!?

Blicious said...

Absolutely! I do love my planner so much, even with all of the technology we have, a great planner helps. /Madison

Anouka said...

Wow, I usually buy a new planner months before a new year starts. It's the one thing I probably couldn't live without.

I only ever kept a planner in college, then afterward I was just totally disorganized. Now, I find it much easier to keep track of things on the calendar in my phone, but I do really like the idea of writing things down in a pretty planner...

OMG, 20 lbs.??? He's a tank! I LOVE it! I hope my boy grows big like that too. You gotta love thick babies ;)

organization does = happiness!

Gosh I used to live/die with a planner. But, nowadays, I've come to rely on my phone (for practical reasons). It's really not as fun as having a planner. I'm old school with having a pen/paper so I miss that part of seeing everything in front of me and also doodling. =)
xo,
nancy

Olga said...

Excellent idea about the agenda. One time, I almost missed my birthday :)

Christianna said...

I seriously need a planner too. I've taken on a lot lately. With writing the book, the music blog and just starting the book blog. Yeah I'm crazy and I need a planner too!

E said...

I don't have a planner either. I love to look at planners, and love them in theory, but never seem to use them consistently. It doesn't really seem like a worthwhile investment.

Claudz said...

I want one like that too!

Meghan @ Wishful Thinking said...

As a compulsive list maker, I really adore anything that can help organise my life. Going on my wish list!

Lady Grey said...

Ha ha I totally know what you mean. And having a planner is a total must. Yours is much cooler-looking than mine!

blimey! get it together, alls you need is a diary and about 25 iphone alarms

These are gorgeous!

I am the same way but I finally stopped using planners - it got to be out of control bc if I left it somewhere it was like I had no brain. I used to be the kind of person who needed to see everything written down but now I just my google calendar for pretty much everything. If it's not in there, it doesn't exist. But part of me still needs that visual impact and the feeling of writing things down in a way that can be preserved so I use moleskin or talbot notebooks to write down ideas, inspirations, thoughts, etc. I just don't use it for basic "calendar" stuff. :)

Monique said...

Enjoy the carnival looks like lots of fun! That planner is amazing!

Lisa Daria said...

I completely understand - I get a new Moleskine planner every year - my favorite part? The Pocket in the back! I like your planner too though, I think I might have planner envy.
