One of the fun things about starting off a brand new year is getting to put up or set out the new calendar(s).
The New Year always feels like a fresh start and another new beginning, hence all those resolutions so many of us make.
It’s fun to “start over” each year, or at least pretend that we are. Who doesn’t love a fresh start?
New calendars are always under the tree as Christmas gifts at my house. A new calendar always makes a nice practical gift and there’s a calendar to fit almost everyone’s interest these days it seems.
There are calendars featuring your favorite sports team, breed of dog, national park, entertainer, TV show, car or whatever. There are music calendars, garden calendars, weather calendars, cooking calendars, movie calendars, space calendars, learn a new language calendars and too many more to name kinds of calendars.
In addition to the calendar theme, there is also the type of calendar to choose as well.
There is the tear-off-a -page-daily desktop kind of calendar, or the more traditional hang-on-the-wall variety, which offers a look at the entire month in one glance.
And of course, let’s not forget the calendar planner, also available in countless shapes, sizes and varieties.
Where would we be without our planners? Now we can even plan on our phones!
Without a planner how does a person, (especially one with chemo brain), remember all those plans, meetings, deadlines, birthdays and yes, doctor appointments?
The type of calendar you like best or use most might say more about you than you might think.
This year I received a planner for keeping track of stuff, as well as a lovely porch calendar, a garden calendar and also this little wise-cracking gem.
My family laughed and laughed when I opened this one. I guess they found it pretty amusing. I did too I must admit, though maybe not as much as they did… hmm….I wonder if they were trying to tell me something…
I’ve never had this type of day-by-day calendar before; given them yes, had one myself, no. It’ll be fun to tear off a page each and every day.
It will feel like a fresh start every time I rip a day off, crumple it up and toss it aside. If it’s been an especially bad day, I can even rip it to shreds first (a nice bonus of this type calendar don’t you think?).
It’s like a fresh start each and every day.
And a fresh start each and every day sure beats getting one only once a year, right?
Happy New Year everyone!
