10 Things you still handwrite
I have been thinking about this list since I saw it on last weeks Tuesday 10 and I am sad to say that I did not come up with much. When I was teaching, I hand wrote things all the time. Notes home, lesson plan outlines, notes during meetings… Now that I stay at home, I realized I go days without writing anything by hand. This is my meager list.
1. Grocery list
I have one of these things on my fridge,
so there is some checking involved, but I do write most of the items by hand. I also write what I plan on making for the week and where I plan on buying certain items.
2. Weekly Menu
After I do my shopping before I throw out my grocery list, I write down what I plan on making that week. Otherwise I forget. The specific day actually means nothing.
Like others have said, there are a few checks that we still write (my husband and I). Like the one to the water company, which I think is due soon…
4. Signing in
When we go to story time or the doctor’s, I have to sign in. Just Haley’s name and mine. Sometimes email, or insurance info. Not very exciting at all.
So that’s about as far as I got. Wow, that’s awful. So the remainder of my list is devoted to things that I am going to try to write more by hand.
This year all my Christmas cards were done, addressed, and sent through Cardstore.com. Awesome, but I didn’t write a single thing by hand. I sent cards to my grandma and papa a week or so ago, again through cardstore, again, nothing hand written.
6. Haley’s baby book
This was from her birthday, in September. I don’t think I have written in it since. Bad mommy!
I have play dates, appointments, bills due. I need to get a small planner and start writing things down. I don’t like trying to put it in my phone calendar, just to much work.
I have this weird thing where I love to buy journals. Look how pretty.
The sad thing is they are all blank. I love to buy them, think about all the wonderful things I am going to write in them, but they stay blank.
9. Blog notes
I have ideas, don’t write them down, they go away. I should change that. Maybe use some of my journal space…
10.post it notes to hubby
I text him constantly, he might enjoy a few hand written post its. I know I do. And I have a ton of post its from my teaching days.
Linking up with Lena B on her last Tuesday10.
