What IS Today??

I swear, since I started working from home full time, I have absolutely no idea what day it is. I used to be able to remember what day it was from what was good on TV that night…now with the DVR, I don’t even need to do that!

Every morning I wake up and think “Okay…today is…?” And then I have to remember if it’s a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday so I can get the kids up and ready for school. And then throughout the day I’m constantly having to remind myself “Today is Monday – Speech class then Drawing class for Burke” Or “Today is Wednesday – Maggie has dance class today.” Or “Today is Thursday – EI day.” or “Today is Friday – EI day for a different kid.”

And I’m always skipping over Sunday for some reason. We’ll be sitting around on a Saturday and I’ll be thinking “Okay – tomorrow is Monday. I have to <fill in whatever happens on Mondays>” And Mike will gently remind me that we have a whole other day to plan around first.

Is part of the problem that I’m not really planning MY days any more? I have to remember all of the kid stuff, but none of mine? Seriously, *MY* day consists of get up, do whatever kid thing is going on, sit in front of the computer, perhaps another kid thing, sit in front of the computer, maybe another kid thing, sit in front of the computer, let the nanny go, try to remember what day it is so that I’ll know if Mike is teaching or coming home at his usual time. heh

Anybody have any tricks for knowing what day it is throughout the whole day? (And yes, I do have a calendar AND a planner…neither seem to help much though.)

  1. I never know what day it is either. I honestly have to ask Bee. I think the problem is that when you’re at home, all the days feel the same, and you don’t have much interaction with the outside world. So basically I’m saying I have no idea how to remember!

  2. No great ideas but even though I am working full time I have to remind myself often

  3. I have a hard time remembering that too, lol!
