I am pretty organized.
I have excel spreadsheets for my bills, and have them open when I pay bills to stay organized. I have a weekly calendar for our vacation so we can keep up with who wants to do what when so we don’t overlap activities. I have a weekly menu posted on a white board in my laundry room (along with the boys’ chore chart) so we all know what is on the dinner menu every day. I have file folders with taxes, and medical receipts, and recipes, and blog stuff.
I try to stay organized. But there is one place where I completely fail.
I have not listened to my voice mail in two weeks. I hope there is nothing urgent on there. I am going to have to break down and listen to it today.
I don’t even know why I don’t listen to it. I look at the phone, see that there is a voice mail, and think, “well, I can’t listen to them right now, I will in a little while.” Then I don’t and I feel bad because I haven’t and a vicious cycle ensues.
In my defense, my voice mail message DOES say that I rarely listen to my voice mail, so if you really want to reach me you need to text me.
Maybe I should just change my voice mail to say that I only listen to my voice mail once every two weeks and hand out my house phone number.
Bluebell is really good about listening to the answering machine.
Am I the only one? Are there more people like me out there? Please help me feel better about my voice mail apathy!!
