Hobonichi Planner Series Part 2: The Weekly Pages

Idealized mock-up version with no private info

I use the weekly pages in my Hobonichi for:

1) Weekly tasks (always listed on the left)

2) Planning out workouts (always done in the morning, and listed along the top)

3) Putting reminders for any appointments.  These include:
     - Work meetings
     - Social events (let's pretend we have a social life :) )
     - Playdates (that counts as a social life, right?)
     - Doctor's appointments and the like

4) Planning out dinners for the week

I am toying with the ideas of using it to:

* Plan out an 'evening treat' (i.e., TV show, book to read, etc -- to help prevent me from wasting those precious 1-2 hours after the kids are in bed!)

* Track a habit.  For example, you can see the 'Unplugged Goal' listed along the bottom - a sticker or checkbox could go in each day the goal was attained.

* Plan out blog posts & tasks!  I think I may try this next year -- we'll see.  Although I kind of enjoy the spontaneity of my current haphazard approach . . .

Notes from the weekend:

Our nanny took A&C home on Friday night as a sort of holiday gift -- so that we could enjoy a much-needed date night and day to ourselves on Saturday (we picked them up around 5 pm).  It was so nice.  I was rather amazed at how productive we were, too!

and I have a big box that I'm going to send to thredup.  

Happy Monday!  I'm on call this week . . . but then off for most of the next.
