We got off the bus in 2010

I feel like there is a key part of my life that is missing right now.

I feel like there should be one ultimate organizational tool out there, that can keep me on top of shit All. The. Time.

I need there to be a master grocery list, that both my husband and I can access anytime either one of us finds ourseves at the store. 

I feel like there should be a master calender, with everything on it, that we can both see from anywhere, at any time.

I know, I know, google calendar, shop-shop, app-app, whatever. 

Here's the problem:  I like pens.  And paper. (Especially if they're pretty pens and/or paper. Or colourful.  Or...*shiny.*) 



I also love big calenders, painted on the wall in the kitchen.  I like writing things down in notebooks. Ah, I love a good notebook! (What can I say, I'm old-school. I'm still putting two spaces after a period, for gawd sakes.  OLD.(space)(space)SCHOOL.) 

Where was I?  (Sorry, distraction is also a serious problem for us geezers.)

Right.  Technology, vs paper and shiny pens. 

Alas, dear technologically advanced world, there is no way to combine the two.  There is no way in the world to have me write things down in a notebook, and have them appear on Steve's "pick me up in the grocery store" app on his phone.

I feel like we got off the technology bus around 2010.  And we need to get back on it, or we're going to get left behind.

Or one of our KIDS needs to pick up the keys and DRIVE THE BUS!  (Not literally, please, children.) 

I feel old.  I guess I'm ok with it though.  It's not even in a "hey you kids, get off my lawn" way.  Just in a "can someone please make the CLOCK STOP BLINKING on the VCR!!" kind of way.  Except it's the iPad, instead of the VCR.  And if I play my cards right, the three year old might just be able to fix it for me.

Oh lawd, help us all!

Love it or leave it, it's here to stay!
