Why I Plan

I figured my first post would be a good time to describe everything I have going on in life and why I need a planner to manage it all. I touched on it briefly in my About page but I decided to give more detail.

This is in no particular order of importance.

1. I am a stay at home/work at home mom. I work online on various projects as they come up but they are not consistent. Within my household I have to manage all family members schedules, bill paying, meal planning, and the normal cleaning and household maintenance.

2. I am a full time Special Education major. Self-explanatory as far as school work.

3. I am PTA Vice President at my son's school.

4. My 6 year old son attends a performing arts school so in addition to normal school activities he also has music, dance, and instrument recitals.

5. I have a baby due in January.

6. I am getting married in July of next year and wedding planning has been put on the back burner until after the baby comes.

7. My fiance is a chef and also decided to get another degree in Nutrition Science.

Throw in the usual doctor appointments, family activities, and other things that go along with managing a family and you will see that I have a lot on my hands.

Nothing that my trusty planner can't handle.

What type of things do you have to manage? Why do you plan?


  1. Hi thank you for your post, what a lot on your plate. Hope the wedding in July goes well and you have a nice day.

  2. You are a busy lady. And I get it cause we all have a million things to do. Keep using your planner to keep your sanity for sure. I also wanted to tell you about a couple of websites that might help you plan for your wedding and your baby. Check out and It's kind of like a visual project planner for both of the big events in your life. Good luck girl!

    1. I actually have apps for both of them on my phone lol.

  3. Congrats on your pregnancy and your upcoming wedding. Great reason's to plan!
