"" The Exhausted Mom: I Need an Assistant

I Need an Assistant

Do you ever have one of those days when you just can't get everything done?  Or you can't remember to write everything down on your "To Do" list?  Or just simply forgot to write a "To Do" list all together?
                                                                                           This has been one of those days.  Or should I say months?  I just can't get a handle on everything.  I feel like I have so much to do and I keep forgetting to do it all.  

I really need an assistant!  Someone to make the phone calls that I can't make because I'm a classroom teacher.  Someone to write down my ideas for the blog.  Someone to write a "To Do" list for all of the things I need to do.  

My dream would be to just to say out loud all that I need to do and someone writes it all down for me.  Then they could cross reference all of my "To Dos" with my calendar.  

Or maybe an App could be created that I can think things and it's automatically recorded on my phone, computer and iPad simultaneously.  Then it sends out messages to me to remind me to do it all!!

Get on that, Apple!!!

Until then, I will do it the old-fashioned way....pen and paper.  And I will continue to forget to write things on my "To Do" list....

What do you do to keep on top of it all?



  1. Just get a tiny recorder it fits in a small case and just talk into it. I do it and it works out great....

  2. for a small fee i will gladly be your assistant. :-D

    ive been doing the notes in my iphone but clearly that hasn't been working, you can ask todd bc nothing ever gets done.

  3. i just purchased an erincondren.com life planner. Recently i have felt the same way...i am always meaning to write a to-do list but then i forget and there is just too much going on!

  4. I always lose my to-do lists. So far all my methods are failing me.

  5. A mind-reading app? Isn't Apple creepy enough?

  6. @Jackie Paulson great idea! But I fear that I would forget to use it...could be because I have one and it's still in the package...did I mention I've had it for 5 years?

  7. Its called Mommy Brain, and the more kids you are the worse it gets! I swear my brain gets sucked out with the placenta every time I have a kid. Lucky the hubby took care of business, because if I had any more kids I probably wouldn't have anything left up there!

  8. I am a S.A.H.M and many of days I wish I had an assistant! I have a white board in our kitchen and TWO calendars that I write on A LOT ... And even then, I still manage to forget some things! I guess its a "mom thing" :)

  9. If it's way important you'll think of it again. I know, that's a crappy answer. But having tried everything (and liking Evernote a lot) I still have to know that if it's right, it'll come back.

    Breathe and know that if you forget to do it, after time it either won't be important or someone else will have done it.
