I have a paper calendar. I write things down on the paper calendar. This ensures that I show up in the right place at the right time for the right events, especially when I pick up shifts at work. I have a month view, so I can see big recurring things, like paydays, when I need to order my pills, vacations, that kind of thing. I have a weekly view for daily events, like work. Anyhow, I agreed to work the Sunday before exams, doing study hall. There is a family reunion this Sunday evening. My uncle from Virginia and his family will be in for it. I've been looking forward to it. The reunion went on the month view because someone else put it on my calendar (NOT your fault, I watched you do it). The extra work hours week on my weekly view, because that's where I put work hours and where I check when my boss asks me if I can work extra hours.

You can see where this is going, can't you?

Gawd, I'm a moron. I need to grow the ability to be in two places at once. I'll throw myself on the mercies of my boss tomorrow and see what she says. It's bloody unprofessional, but it's family. Dammit.

At least I noticed this today, instead of Sunday, when one place or the other would have called me and asked me where the hell I was. And I even talked to Hope and Jeff last weekend about the reunion this weekend, and with my boss about work this weekend. The two days just didn't connect in my head until now. Yarg.
