Is it sad that it's only October but I'm already filling in a calendar for next year?

Am I the only one who does this?

I was finally able to buy a monthly planner for next year and since I have to day off from work for Columbus Day, I'm sitting here at my desk filling it in already. Whether it's sad or not, it does help me with all my spreadsheets I have to make for next year (I have to keep track of our hours for the three different jobs and I need to make sure I have pay dates correct).

I'm glad to see you post this as I'm actually feeling a little off as I keep forgetting to order my 2019 planner and I really want to do what you're doing. It makes me feel better seeing it all. I think I'll go and order it now.

No. I have had court hearings and other appointments scheduled into 2019 for some time now.
O also realized that some of my medical appointments are scheduled a full year in advance, others six months. I always schedule my next appointment at my current one.
Better to have them in a calendar than on scraps of paper.

I look at it as planning ahead! I think it is all Good. I won't do that until it gets closer to the new year.



The only thing I have to plan right now for 2019 is my May Trip to Disney.

I am going to transfer all my calendar info on to my phone this year, not sure how it will go without the hard copy to look at.

Julia,

I do both my phone and my good, old fashioned appointment book. I still find my book better-I can look and see a week at a time,

Phone is good when you wanted to be reminded ahead of time, but I look at my book first thing in the morning.

I've had mine for a while, we have several commitments next year already, I needed to get it down. Dave likes the phone calendar, but I'm still old school and want it written down.

I keep a monthly paper calendar in my purse, and I transfer info from it to my phone with reminders set on Sunday (during the sermon at my church, isn't that bad?) We also have a big white board in our living room/dining room area with the week's plans. DH homeschools, and we have only one car now, so we have to find time to get on the same page each week to make it work.



My current pocketbook calendar is a 2 year month at a glance type. I am finding that it is enough for me at home.



At work, I use the appointments application that comes with our email. I have LOADS of stuff on there. Working for the school district, my year starts in the fall, and I have appointments planned through spring of the next year pretty quickly.

Not at all. I use the calendar on my phone for appointments etc. If it's not on my calendar it doesn't exist. I also get appointment cards as well.
