mark it on your calendar...b/c i don't have one

never in my life have i been able to keep a calendar. never.

i might be one of the most organized people you know...might. i love all the new school supplies and organizers when august roles around. notice the use of the present tense. one year i got so nostalgic for school supplies that i got a binder that i could use for all my house things...bills, addresses, business cards. you can ask my accountant, john eric, about the binder. he knows it well. a little side note...if you need an awesome person to help do your taxes...john eric hester. he's awesome.

back to the binder. in this binder i have a calendar section. there is only one month filled out.

that is my problem. i get calendars and fill them out for a couple of weeks, but i never go back to look at it. this might be why i miss appointments all the time. sorry.

on the other hand...it is what makes me the type of person who decides to go to the beach at 2 a.m. with these crazy people,

doesn't tell anyone and comes back later that night. or the time when we left at 4:30 a.m. for the beach, or the numerous times we tried to think of what do do for supper and decided that memphis was a good option. or the time when we drove home from memphis and decided to take a side trip to tupelo to visit the boats. or the countless times we decided that 2 a.m. is a great time to go to graceland too. you get the drift.

the only thing i have that is close to a calendar is the sheet of typing paper i grab on sundays to jot down my week's activities. how i got through school, college and being a youth director...i have no clue.

i don't think that i will ever be able to keep a calendar/organizer.

actually i take that back. i will totally be the mom with a calendar on the refrigerator with a color for each kid and their activities. joy cannada used to do that and everytime i went over there as a kid i would just stare in amazement. i always told her that i wanted to have a color.

so until i have enough kids for the calendar to be colorful...i will stick with my sheet of typing paper.

there is a point to all of this.

earlier this week i made a purchase.

U2 tickets for $30 in atlanta OCTOBER 6th.

i've never made a plan that far in advance.

and yes, you did read correctly....the tickets were $30....to see this man.


thank goodness my sister and roommate are going with me, so they will remind me about it when october roles around. actually...nette will probably remind me every day with an official countdown.
