Very cute ducks in a row in that first picture! I didn't think I could write a post about being organized, cause I'm not. But I did get a planner and start using it Monday. So I guess I'm organized in a very disorganized way. I like doing things spontaneously, otherwise I feel bound to the schedule and bored, but I do like to write thoughts down so I don't lose them. I get ideas for things I want to do, and if I don't write them down I forget them. I also like to write things down after we do them so I don't forget we did them. That's kind of how I use a planner. I am organized, just very loosely.
