“I’m using Yahoo Calendar!” I chirped to my husband who’d suggested it when I asked about Outlook. I’ve been a paper calendar girl this whole time — never entering the 21st century. I don’t have a Blackberry and honestly have a hard time even justifying my regular cell phone bill if I didn’t have the kid (but then, I guess I might have a regular job that might require mobile accessibility. I used to teach high school where cell phones aren’t allowed in view. The only time I used my cell phone was when I happened to have it in my coat pocket, and I had my coat on because my classroom was 64 degrees. I used it to call the main office when I was barricading my body against the door so a pissed off student wouldn’t get back in. Those were the days…)
Anyway, I was complaining that I need to update things online since I can never find my planner. It turns out that if you’ve got a Yahoo email address, there is, right there on your mail page, a tab for a Calendar page. Who knew? (I guess I was distracted by the 10086 unread messages in my Inbox. No, I am not kidding.)
So now I can input all my stuff as I get the Evite or see the posting or whatever and then later write it all down on paper (for that global-minded learning style). And since I’m on five pages worth of Yahoo groups, I’ve also got — already magically there! — details for meetings for anything anyone on any group I’m on has put into the group calendar. There sure are a lot of babywearing meetings now that my son is too big to be worn! (Unless of course he’s got a fever and won’t let me leave his side, in which case into the Ergo his almost-three self went a few weeks ago.)
In response to my happy news of thanks, my helpful hubby said, “Really. I had no idea. I just made that up.”
