Only two steps on this list, should be easy, right?
1. Write down the correct date and time of events
2. Check the calendar each day for events
Yeah, easy if you aren’t calendar challenged. I don’t know why I have such a problem with calendar usage. It’s quite embarassing, really. I seem to think that I can rely on my memory, which is just plain stupid. Or I write things down and then forget to actually look at the calendar.
Or, I write things down WRONG. I made an appointment for a haircut. While I was on the phone, I wrote the date and time down. And somehow, when I wrote it down on the piece of paper that I posted on my wall so that I wouldn’t forget the date and time: I got the time wrong. Thankfully, my hairdresser had to call and reschedule. If she hadn’t, I would have shown up at 9 this morning and been an hour early. And I won’t even admit how many times I’ve actually missed haircut appointments simply because I never managed to write the appointment down on my calendar. Good grief.
My new appointment is on Thursday at 1. I wrote it down and repeated it to her, so hopefully I’ve got it right this time.

Sister! My long lost sister! Come closer so that I can embrace you! Oh, wait – the receptionist at my dentist’s office just phoned to remind me that I’m 15 minutes for an appointment. Gotta run. Ciao!
Oh yeah, I’ve done that more times than I care to imagine. UGH.
