the english pea studio, make time for fun printable calendar

special guest post by Alison Moore English of The English Pea 

If you are like me then you probably feel like you haven’t stopped since the Christmas holidays. There is so much to be done with kiddos, family, birthdays, business, new product development, taxes, and the list goes on.

I don’t know about you, but sometimes it just doesn’t feel like there is a lot of time to fit fun, quality time in. I work from home with my kiddos in tow and there are so many days that I intend to do something fun; promise to get up with a friend, schedule that sitter for date night but my very busy, over stacked list gets the better of me.

So I decided I would create my “fun” calendar – a way for me to get motivated about scheduling those oh so fun moments for either myself, my kiddos, my hubby and those friends I used to have;)

My goal is to use the calendar and post it on the fridge or next to our big marker board calendar and get a couple things scheduled each month that are fun and focused on those that I love so dearly. The calendar is easy to use and I have provided a printable for stickers as reminders and they provide ideas as well. The great thing is you can start today – or tomorrow (just put it on your to-do list for this week and be sure to mark it off before next). Because you and I both know, our long laundry list never gets shorter, but those little people grow, those friendships can change, and that intimate relationship with your spouse or significant other need fostering in order to stay healthy. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to look back and wish I had spent one less afternoon working instead of playing with those that mean the most to me.
