|Customized Calendar I Got From Work For Christmas|
What To Put On A CalendarMy dad only had one, but he used it for everything. If he got a new roof on the house, he marked it on the calendar along with the year. If he had a Dr. appointment, he marked that on the calendar. If he bought a new furnace, that would go on the calendar along with the year. For birthdays, he would also include how old the person was, not just put their name on that day. (I liked that idea and started doing that on my calendars too.) The problem with this though was that it would take him forever to change to a new one because there was so much information to transfer over that he kept putting it off. It must have taken him all day to get his information transferred to a new calendar but when it came time to sell his house after he died, it made it easy for me to find out how old the roof and furnace were when the realtor asked.
When To Flip A Calendar
|Sweet Thing, my favorite of Dad's cats|
What good is a calendar if it's on the wrong month? And the year I got that customized one with his cats, I really wanted him to flip it to the next page because that was Sweet Thing, my favorite one! I remember being very aggravated about that. I am very good at flipping the months on time on all my calendars so just had a hard time understanding why he didn't.
What do you mark on your calendars? Do you change yours on time?
