Joining the 21st century

At the beginning of September, Rob and I decided to merge into a Google calendar instead of the traditional wall, desk, and planner varieties. Previously, I had a calendar for my meal planning, one for our appointments, one on my phone, and one was on Rob's phone. With all the different calendars, we would "occasionally" forget that the other had made plans, inform them at all that plans had been made, or even writing any of it down causing some discord. Now everything is at fingertips on our smartphones. 

We did have a few SNAFU’s when we switched over to the digital world, like a missed dentist appointment and Rob has forgotten a few times to update or even look at his calendar. However, over all it has been amazing to have all of the meal plans, appointments, MOPS info, Rob's lodge meeting schedule, and the kids school stuff in one place that syncs automatically

If you have a Gmail account and a smartphone I would highly recommend upgrading to Google paperless calendar variety.
