Since becoming a one car family again, our juggling act has become clumsy. Doug gets times confused and whines that he doesn’t have time to run upstairs to check the marker board a dozen times a day. The solution arrived in the mail yesterday. A 7-column weekly grid calendar aka “The Fridge Grid” by the same people who made the BusyBodyBook that I carry with me at all times. The Fridge Grid allowed me to make Doug a copy of the next two weeks’ schedule of doctor appointments, karate classes, school activities and the dozens of other things that make me feel like we live in our car. Doug got excited about the calendar because it has a column for each member of the family. “It’s perfect for our family! Make a chore chart! No, make a meal and snack planner!” I’m going to use his chore suggestion first. This summer it’s going to be used to keep track of reading and videogaming hours. One of those numbers should be higher than the other.
