Where did the summer go? I just looked at the calendar and was shocked to see that in one month, Avery will be heading back to school! I was surprised, and then I started feeling a bit overwhelmed! Every day has at least one event or activity. Some days each member of our family has something different going on. It’s madness!
Dave and I add our events to our google calendars, but we don’t always coordinate so well. There are many days where he forgets that Avery has dance, or I forget that he has a baseball game. There may be more than a few “arguments” that go like this:
“I TOLD you about this!”
“NO! You NEVER told me about it!”
“Yes I did!”
“No you didn’t!”
You get it. We’re just busy, busy, busy people, and it’s hard to keep it all straight. So, I decided to try to make it a bit easier, by getting some sort of calendar. But, I couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for. I wanted something reusable, with sections large enough for all our activities, something we could all add to, and that fit our decor. I came up empty handed so I knew I had to make my own. For less than $15, I made a simple family schedule station.
- Photo frame (Ours has 8 sections. One for every day of the week, and one for notes)
- Letter or day of the week stickers
- Decorative paper (light colors and subtle patterns work best since you’ll be writing over them)
- Any add-ons to make it your own!
- Cut your paper to fit the frames.
- Place letter stickers sticky side up, on the glass, where you’d like them to be.
- Gently place your cut paper into the frame, pressing down on the sticker to secure.
- Follow steps 1-3 for each section, then replace the back of the frame, and Ta-Da!
I added a few burlap flowers to mine, to give it a little somethin’ extra. And then, I started writing our plans for the week! Of course, with a busy schedule like ours, we can’t forget the TYLENOL®! When we’re running from one activity to another, with work and general life stress on top of that, it’s inevitable that we’ll have headaches, and other aches and pains. Dave and I always have Extra Strength TYLENOL® on hand. We love that it helps us to get back to the things we love with powerful relief of tension headaches, back pain and more. For me, those tension headaches often come after a long day of work on my computer. Extra Strength TYLENOL® gives me fast relief from my headache pain, allowing me to focus on work, and get through our days activities.
Dave also uses Extra Strength TYLENOL® to temporarily relieve minor aches and pains that come with long days at work as a woodworker, and the muscle aches that come with playing baseball and working out. You’ll also find Ultra Strength BENGAY® Cream in his bat bag to temporarily relieve the minor aches and pains of muscles and joints associated with: simple backache, arthritis, strains, bruises and sprains. With Extra Strength TYLENOL® and Ultra Strength BENGAY® in his arsenal, nothing can stop Dave from being at his best as a business owner, baseball player, coach, and dad!
And, of course, we all know that back to school can bring germs and bugs into our kiddos world. So, we always have Children’s TYLENOL® on hand! We’re lucky that Avery doesn’t get sick often, but when it happens we always reach for TYLENOL® the#1 Pediatrician Recommended Brand for Pain & Fever and Used by Moms for Over 60 years.
I feel less overwhelmed now that we have a system in place to keep our schedules straight, and I know that with TYLENOL® in our medicine cabinet, and Target just down the street, we will get through the school year happy and pain free!
