In order to fully procrastinate (and deter my mind from what is going to be an utterly busy next week due to said procrastination), I'm thinking about planners and organization!  Since becoming a teacher, I've struggled with figuring out a way to plan my life.  Now I LOVE me some planners and lists.  I put stickers by exciting things in my planner to give me something to smile about.  When I was a social worker, I had this big, ole hour-by-hour planner where I wrote everything.  For some reason, this didn't work for me when I started teaching.  I didn't have as many appointments and didn't need an hour-by-hour deal.  I've been back and forth between my iPhone calender and my desk calendar at work.  I'm still pretty confident I need/want the desk calendar to have school meetings at my fingertips.  I really want something though that is chic and I can carry everywhere.  I want to have all my to-do lists, grocery lists, craft lists (even if it's a bunch of post-its on one page) in one place with my calendar.  Then I can transfer important stuff to the "family" Google calendar.  It still seems like a lot of places to have appointments...but you gotta do what works for you. 

Point being...I've been searching for a good chic planner.  Problem being...I really think I need/want a school year planner.  My life now revolves around the August-June school year.  Meetings at school are scheduled through the year.  In August, I want to be able to write all my scheduled school meetings for the 2011-2012 year (in pencil, duh).  I'm still scouring Etsy.

[Totally wasn't looking for a lesson planner, but I WANT this one for next year!  It is absolutely amazing on the inside!]

[That's woven ribbon and it's a 2-year planner.  You can choose your own colors too.  I'm afraid the calendar boxes are too small for me though]

[I like the fact that this etsy seller allows you to pick the inside layout.  There are some awesome options.  This one is a contender...I'm just not a fan of the spiral binding]

[Ooo!  And there's even an owl!]

Ok...enough procrastinating.  I'm off to read one of my books for literature circles.
